Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W220/B Digital Camera
The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel after dropping it. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.
Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.
Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.
Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.
Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).
Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.
Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.
Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.
Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.
If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.
Hope the advise is useful.

My 4year old daughter dropped my DSC-W80 on my hardwood floor. The lens was stuck open on a angle. I did what you said turn camera on/off and play with lens. IT WORKED! camera is perfect again, well except for the scrapes and dings from its fall!

If your lens is stuck on your Sony Cyber-shot digital camera you will have the "E:61" error or another message saying
"Access" or "Turn camera off and then on again" or "Lens error,
The lens needs to be taken apart and cleaned, then rebuilt and put back in the camera. Hopefully this will fix the problem! It will not fix the problem if there is damage to the lens or gears, in that case the lens needs to be repaired or replaced.
Most places will want to charge you around $200 for this repair! I've spent years building a business to HELP people repair their cameras as cheaply as possible; if we can help please let us know.
Good luck from: Darntoothysam com
