This is a known problem with the Sony cybershot. Well at least they know about it. My brother had a camera did the exact same thing. It was out of warrany but not by much. Called Sony found Sony extended its warranty on the camera. Sent it in the camera came back with a new lens assembly and a software update. If you search around the internet there are some people that say that you can take it apart and grease the lens. But I would not recommend this unless you are a design engineer for Sony. The lens mechanism is timed and very delicate not to mention getting the inner lenses smudged. But if you are just going to send it to the trash I would try it. But6 be careful of high voltage to the falsh if you choose to take it apart.
Hi bell,\015\012I think there is no problem with battery but it may be with lens assy. . you have to check out the lens assy at sony shop so go to sony shop.\015\012\015\012good luck...
