Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W70 Digital Camera
I used a hair blower first to blow cool air into the lense, but that didn't work. Then I tried using a tire pump. I pumped air into the lense quite a few times. It still didn't turn on properly after that. So I used the cloth I usually use to wipe my glasses with to wipe the lense a few times, making sure that I wiped the edges. It's a small area to wipe but make sure you get the edges. After that my camera turned on just fine and I was able to use my camera. I think it was a combination of all the attempts that finally got watever was stuck in the lense out. Wish you the best of luck. Hope this works!

Did switcing on and off help?
if not suspect that lens is blocked, try to get some compressed air and blow it down the edge of the lens perhaps a hairdryer on cold setting or bicyle or ballon pump may work to dislodge any debris that may have got into the mechanism also try removing and replacing the battery. this may help.
recommend a qualifed photo specialist look at this as it is quite delicate.
Warning: do not touch the lens unless using a lens cloth or lens tissus finger prints may remove the protective coatings, reducing your photo quality.
Note ensure that no dust sand or lint is building up in your camera case, maybe use a vacuum cleaner every once in a while to remove this, as particals may get into the lens gaps and cause blockages.

The problem is
1- some dirt somehow got on the outside of the lense. After it was retracted fully in, it prevents the camera from opening again. When you turn it on, if it opens a little bit, try to pull it out NOT too hard and let go a few times. If it opened, clear the outside of the lense. Your camera should be back to normal.
2- If you droped the camera, you probably damaged or dislocated a mechanical part of the lense. You may have to take out the lense by unscrewing it and inspect it for damged parts or disconnected cable. Make sure clean the lense and test it by moving it in and out a few times, before puting it back on the camera.
