This was how I did to my Sony camera with the same problem.

While the camera is off, use a toothpick to ply open the front protective blades and guide the tip of the toothpick to the top middle of the retangular opening infront of the lens. Make sure the toothpick is sit behind the frame of the lens opening, and that you can slightly pull on the inner frame of the lens openning, as if you wanted to pull the lens barrel out.

You should hold the camera in one hand with one finger spared to try to reach the power button/switch while holding a tooth with the other hand and position it as described above.

When you are ready, turn on the camera and immediately pull the toothpick. If you are lucky, this can help to release a slightly stuck lens to come out. Some cases, the inner zoom mechanism might have damage, that the lens may come out but then will go back in but not completely flushed in.

Note: If the lens is not totally retracted to the body in power off state, the above trick won't work to resume the camera to normal operation.

Finally, this is my personal experience, and if you want to try, try at your own risk. Make sure you know what you are doing before action taken.

I have a cybershot DSC W55. When the power button is switched on the lens extends and the "access" message shown on screen. Also amber light is flashing above screen. After a few seconds I get a message to power on and off again. I\'ve tried switching on and off a few times, removing battery pack and memory card, but nothing seems to be solving the problem.

Lens goes in and out and error message 'turn


this message comes up if you have dropped your camera. try tapping the device while the message comes up. if that doesn't work then you have to take it to the sony service centre to replace the lens array. it costs about 60$ to replace it.

It tells me to turn power off and on again?


funny enough...just hit the camera lens against a table or a desk, and the camera will work...
your lens is out of place that's all...
I did it ...and It worked for me. so you might as well give it a try! :)

Sony dsc-w55 fell and the lens is stuck


Use bit more force to push or pull the lens as lens has been damaged. If applying bit more force lens goes to working, u saved $$$ otherwise, new lens option is always available at Sony repair shops.
