Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W7 Digital Camera
While turning in off softely press the lense in and out a couple of times. The lense would retract. If not fully, but most of the way, push the lense a little harder in until completely retract. If you turn it on, I should work fine. The reason the lense does not retract is most likely some dust in there somewhere. If it did not help, you would have to open the lense and clean it and close the lense.
I hope it helps,

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

I had the exact same problem. I used canned air to try to clean the unretracted lens and that worked. Thanks, Darntoothysam!
