Mine camera did the same thing. i gave it to my techno neighbor guy and hours later he gave me my camera back and it was FULLY functional! he "hit it several times" thus jarring the lens back into place! (i could have gone w/o hearing that but, hey! it works!
It may be as simple as a dirty lens. If the lens is dirty it will act like it is out of focus. If that doesn't work and you want to repair it yourself there is a guy in South Carolina who has lots of parts for all the Sony Cameras. I bought my LCD from him for $39.00 plus shipping and it works perfect. I put it in myself and saved a ton. If you buy the part from him he sends you pictures of him taking the camera apart so that you can repeat the process when you install it. I think his email is [email protected]
