Sounds like your lens is defective and needs to be repaired or replaced. Sometimes its just a speck of dust in the lens, other times its damage to the gears or something else; you never know till you open up the lens and see.

If you take the lens out of the camera, tear it down, clean the gears and put it back in the camera it may start to work again.

If you don't want to do the work yourself, I own an AFFORDABLE digital camera repair shop, just let us know if we can help.

Good luck from Darntoothysam com

Sorry but usually when the camera lens is forced shut, the gear mechanism will get out of sync. Usually even if it will open, you will receive a Lens Error

Sony Cybershot DSCW350 - Camera got dropped with the lens out. While I was able to straighten it out, the lens will no longer completely close (although it clicks like it is trying to) and I continue to...

It seems that some small part inside the lens is broken and prevents moving. Usually not fixable by user :-( I am afraid you will need help of service personnel.

Cybershot lens stuck

The gearing on the lens is probably damages from the drop. You have two choices:
1. Send it in for a repair (which will be expensive) and claim from your insurance. If it is uneconomical to repair, your insurer will probably pay for a replacement camera.
2. If you're not insured, it may be cheaper to just buy a new camera rather than pay for a repair to a 4(?) year old camera.
