You probably didn't wash the camera after using it underwater specially in salt water. The salt will dry inside the lens and may cause this problem. Try soaking the camera for a while - wash it according to the manual's instructions. Hopefully soaking it will clear the deposits and clear the lens. Good Luck.

I don't have any experience with this camera, but it does sound like either the switch contacts are corroded, or the switch is broken. Since you mention moisture, we'll go with that. You will have to probably take the camera apart to a measurable degree to inspect and clean the contacts, and that may require a service manual, unless you can find someone to walk you through it, that's been there, done that. I know on some types of cameras, you have to totally dissassemble the entire body to replace a broken power switch- a common problem on certain Sonys, it seems. Moisture can affect both the electrical and mechanical parts in a camera, and often render it unaffordable to service and repair. Wish I had an easy "fix" to tell you about, but sometimes there just isn't one.

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. 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. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

SOURCE: Camera will not turn on.
The camera is not coming on because movement of the lens is restrcted. The problem could be that some dust is stuck in the lens well between the lens housing and the well wall. Please use your hairdryer to blow the specs of dust and free the lens movement. Once the dust is dislodged, the lens will move freely and the camera will bootup.
