Camera taking partially blurred photos?

Please help me. I own a "SONY CYBER-SHOT DSC-W70" digital camera. It has worked perfectly for years. Recently, my brother took it with him on his holiday to the Netherlands and the weather there was really cold (-14 deg Celsius).

When he returned, all the photos that he took there were partially blurred. Only in the center the image is in focus but all around it, it is blurry. This is what a photo taken with it looks like (sorry I had to use my nephew's toy as a model):http://

Could someone please help me fix this problem. Is it because of some setting that needs to be adjusted or has the lens gotten damaged? I would greatly appreciate any advice. Thank you so much!

What setting are you using when taking the pictures? Is it on automatic or manual? Also, have you carefully cleaned the lens? I know that seems like something you would've already checked but sometimes you can't see small smudges and what not. Those are the only two things I can think of off the top of my head. I have the same model but I haven't used it in a few years since getting a new camera, thus it's dead and I can't power it on to see if there is a setting that may be causing this issue.

I tried every setting to take the pictures (manual and auto) and they still appear blurred. I even reset the camera to its default factory settings bu still no improvement. Yes, I properly cleaned the lens but that did not fix the problem either.

I'm not sure what else may be causing the issue unless there is some moisture in between the lens and the optical sensor. Unfortunately, that's an older model camera so it's probably cheaper to replace than to repair.
