Same thing here Tankengine. My problem started when my camera took a spill of about 4 feet. After that I've been getting the same message you have been. I've sent a message to Sony so hopefully they will have an answer. Something tells me it's going to involve sending the camera away, and spending money on an old camera.

Just take the back cover off, unplug the cable that runs to the switches from the main board and plug it back in. I had the same problem and it now works great!

You have a jammed lens error the lens has to be repaired or replaced. You dont have to drop the camera for this to occur it can happen when ever the camera is in your pocket or purse. it accidently gets turned on and when the lens is coming out it is obstructed and strips the little plactic gears in the lens.
