Question about Canon PowerShot A620 Digital Camera
Powers on OK and the lens extends all the way out but the lens cover stays closed. Sometimes I can get it to partially open just a sliver. Happened all of a sudden, no prior problems, accidents or damage.
Try this only as a last resort after blowing lots of compressed air in there to clean the mechanism. Also with the lens barrel extended, tap it with a pencil (a grain of sand is usually the culprit, this may help to dislodge it). If that doesn't work, it may be necessary to go in there. The following repair will expire your warranty, so be forewarned.
This blog post outlines repair procedures for stuck lens covers. An A400 is used as an example. But for the A620, you might want to extend your zoom all the way out before removing the camera's batteries. Also you'll be applying the ring loosening rubbing alcohol around the barrel's perimeter instead of the front as shown in the procedures.:
Good luck, and remember to do this only as a very last resort. Oh, and if you do decide to try the repair, please post how it went.
