Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera
This has to be the common failure mode or a
digital camera. Some common error messages that might show up on the
LCD's of cameras with this problem include “E18 lens error”, or “lens
error, restart camera”.
The problem is actually quite common throughout all camera brands. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism.
The methods are listed in the order of risk of damaging your camera. Thus make sure you try them in the listed order. And remember, these fixes (especially #6 and #7) should only be considered for a camera that's out of warranty, who's cost of repair would be excessive, and would otherwise be considered for disposal if unrepaired: Review here for the solution steps.
Hope helped with this.

This is problem of lens mechanism when it gets stuck/ broken/ misaligned or its optical sensors become defective.
In all above said cases lens mechanism does not send initialize/ reset signal to system control chip that cause 'turn power off and on again' error message.
Need to replace lens assembly in camera to fix this problem.
Some times tapping camera gently solve the problem if lens mechanism stuck, broken or misaligned status can not be corrected by tapping.
If you want to replace lens assembly by yourself, let me know to provide you part number info.
