Sony Cybershot DSC-W50 lens won't close

The lens on my cybershot (DSC-W50) won't close. I had found others that had this same issue with theirs, and for a lot of them giving it a couple knocks on your palm seemed to work. This did not work for me. I also tried putting a tiny (2 small drops) of WD-40 on either side of the lens. I used a small eye dropper to add them. My camera is only about 1 1/2 years old. So it is about 6 months out of warranty, and they want over $100 to fix it, I can not afford this. I figured I would ask if anyone has anything else for me to try.

At this point I am willing to try to take it apart myself just to see if I can fix it, but can't even get the screws loose.

Any help would be appreciated considering I can not afford to even have it looked at right now. Thank you in advance.

    I also wanted to add, that I have already tried taking the battery out for 1-2 minutes, and doing a manual reset.

That is because the gears are either broke, worn out, or something has cause them to become misaligned.

I have a Sony DSC-W50 Cybershot camera that won't take pictures or videos anymore. It powers up fine and the screen works, but when I hold down the shutter button all the way, it focuses and nothing more.

I had the same problem with my camera.  I found that changing the mode from Multi Burst to Normal allows the camera to take normal pictures.  Go to Menu and scroll over to Mode, then select Normal.
