Well dont use force like pulling lens out. Take memry card out make sure it is in correctly and contact clean and the compartment door is shut. Then try If to no avail Get onto Sony Technical Support via the web. I guess this is a a circuit board fault and need replacing.

Sounds like you have two problems, both which mean bad news. The clicking could be a broken gear in the lens unit or off track lens.
The colors may be caused from a bad ccd or sensor internally.

Sony cybershot DSC-W50 lens problen

thats normal.
it just doesn't have enough power to bring the lense back in.
once you charge your battery and turn it on the lense will automatically come back in and then out for you to take a picture.

Access Message

This is a hardware problem. Your simptons is tipical of a lens position sensor being faulty.

There is however nothing you can do yourself. Contact your nearest Sony dealer and take the camera to a Sony service centre.

They will quote you for a new lens assembly as they will not be able to replace the sensor only.

Cost should be about 1/2 of what you paid for the camera.

Good luck.
