Question about Canon PowerShot S45 Digital Camera
Hi, The sliding cover on my S45 has become loose, and the camera sometimes powers down when the camera is on and in use. Seems like the cover switch has become very sensitive to the slightest movement of the cover when in use, and easily turns off. Otherwise, the camera works fine. Can I fix this fault, or is it a Service Center repair. If it is fixable easily, what do I need to do? Thanks. JEFF
Question: re a jammed open cover, the advice above says, "You can easily take off the front cover to investigate this" . How? - Just ease it off, or undo the screws in the silver plate that holds the carry cord? Thank you.

When you start to close the lens cover, a pin pushes against a spring to trigger the lens retraction sequence. You can easily take off the front cover to investigate this, and possibly adjust the angle of the spring to make it less sensitive. Just be careful not to yank out the ribbon that connects it all together.
