Yes this can be cleaned with a can of compressed air. but I feel you went above the call of duty here to repair it yourself and I congradulate you for your go getter do it yourself attidude and action. Now you might have to chalk this thing up and get a new camera as once these are cracked open its done unless you now what exactly you are doing, its like a kid in a cookie jar effect..

Lens errors (access errors on Sony's) are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may (or may not) correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try. Some of the later steps do involve some risk to the camera, so carefully weigh your options before deciding to conduct them.

Problem with the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W35 Digital Camera
when I turn on sony cyber-shot camera I get a screen
display that states "access". The lens keeps going in and out and then
it states,"turn the power off and on again" What's wrong??
Hi, Due to malfunctioning of FLASH UNIT assembly this message appears"turn off the power and on again". A very common problem in these models. Just replace the COMPLETE FLASH ASSY and camera will work fine again. The detail of part is given below:
1- For DSC-W55 Part Number Description
A-1231-877-A ST-133 BOARD, COMPLETE 2- For DSC-W35
Its lens error in your DSC-W35 camera. Lens mechanism is either stuck or not retract completely and system control sense this error. Please replace lens assembly to get it fixed because lens mechanism is not repairable. Thanks.
This is a common problem for all Sony Cybershot digital cameras. It is saying the error "Access" because whenever you turn it on, the camera finds it hard to retract and open out the lens. Chances are, there is some sand or maybe dust or dirt of These are few things you can do.
You can blow a compressed air on the camera's lens to try to take off the dirt or granule of sand stuck within the lens. Also, you can try to hold the camera from your right hand with the lens facing the ground and hit the camera's base on your left palm. Do this several times.
"turn off the power and on again" its a very commen problem and occurs when the lens block assembly start malfunctioning. Actually the slide motor not work properly and until the lens not come out completely the camera will not work, that's why the error message appears "Access" and then screen shows "turn off the power and on again". In this situation you have to replace lens block assembly.And the part No. is with description is given below:
1-788-363-11 OPTICS UNIT (ED13A)
Thanks for using fixya.
The "Access" will stay there until your camera passes it's self lens test. The test runs 3 times, then gives up with an error message. The cause of this problem is most likely a grain of sand somewhere in the lens. Only a camera tech could possibly ever hope to find it. Replace the camera lens.
This error message TURN THE POWER OFF AND ON AGAIN is a common error message for digital cameras that has a zoom lens. One possible cause for this is that the battery may had drained out and the lens is still extended. There would be different that steps you could perform and make sure you have fresh or fully charged batteries when performing these steps.
First of course try to do what the error states.
If will not work, set the unit in PLAY mode before turning it ON or immediately right after you press the power. If it successfully gets through the PLAY mode, initialize the settings and restart th camera. You could initialize it by going to the menu and then setup.
If still will not work, turn it off and also remove the battery and allow it to have no power at all for a minute.
If all the steps above will still not work. your camera would require service and try calling its manufacturer to setup a repair on it.
lights flashing like that usually means something is wrong in the shut-down procedure.
my guess (and is quite common ) is that the lens doesnt retrack all the way hitting a clitched gear spline or something, maybe just weak motor,....as your retry it it settles in proper and tells the micro its ok now to shut down.
