Answers :

Did you drop this camera anytime in the near past , if so then it apparent that the barrel assy is off aligment , jammed or broken. Very common problem with dropped cases. If not then you have a sticky/defective motor/sensor which is not allwoing the barrel to complete it startup cycle. There is nothing much as user you can do to sort this problem out , instead take it to a camera reapir centre. best of luck

I have a SONY Cybershot DSC W150. When I turn it on the lens goes kut and comes back in several times, then I get the error message "Turn the Power Off and On Again", but doing that does not change anything. This is one of four digicams I own (also a Nikon D90, SONY DSC F717, and a Canon) and I like the W150 for some purposes because it is compact and has a viewfinder, not just a screen.
