Recently while taking photos with my camera, I went to power it off when I was finished. It would not power off, and the lens is stuck...it will not retract. I changed batteries and that did not help. Should I take it somewhere for repair, or has this happened to anyone else?

A camera repairman could possibly remedy the situation. Although a common do-it-yourself trick is to burst the stuck lens area with compressed air. Although I still suggest you bring it to the technician to have it checked...
Dont know if this will help anyone. I had a lens error for ages. In my long lasting devotion to google serk I found that many equall contenders found that a strike with a soft book in different directiions solved the problem. I ended up beating the camera from all angles with the palm of my hand. But hey! it worked. 4 months later im looking for the cure to system error 2. If you can help wi that one.
Hello, I have read other forums that suggest that quite literally rapping or swatting the unit on its bottom half can actually solve the problem and get things going again. I am going to try it with mine. I too have a stuck lens. Here is a link that details this crude method: http://www.pechorin.com/m/2005/09/10/Sony_DSC_MVC_camera_repairs-245400-11.html
