Question about Samsung Digimax 250 Digital Camera
Hi, my daughter's 250 lens cover, spring loaded in 2 parts sticks closed, i.e. doesn't open fully when camera turned on. You have to flick it open manually. Tried blowing etc, but can't fix. Can the lens be dis-assembled? Thanks for any help.
Try blowing lots of compressed air around the open lens shutter to clean the mechanism. Or use a hair dryer for a few seconds (don't want to heat up the camera). Also with the lens barrel extended and pointed downward, tap the lens barrel with a pencil while you extend and retract the lens by powering the camera on and off. A grain of sand in the mechanism is usually the culprit, and you want to try to dislodge it.
You can open it up, but only as a very last resort. The above procedures usually work if you try them enough. But for those particularly nasty stuck mechanisms, here's an example repair on a Canon Powershot A400 (do this at your own risk, and it will void your warranty):
