Question about Canon PowerShot A510 Digital Camera
On my Canon Powershot A510, the retracting lens cap doesn't open all the way when I turn the camera on. It will open when I flick it with my finger, but then, of course, the lens gets smudged. Any suggestions? Thanks!
I was messing around with this today, ended up where it seemed in was working.
Power up, let lens out, then take out batteries. Pry off silver band patiently using fingernails. Then pry off overlying black plastic piece. There are four units underneath, pay attention to how these are put on, mine popped off, but it wasn't too hard to figure out how to put back together. There are pins and holes and kind of fits like a jigsaw. Once off clean with alcohol where you can.
Put batteries back in and open and close a few times. This will help understand movement where pins of lens cover pieces go. When putting these back on make sure camera is in off position.
The lens cover pieces need to be put on so that the pin portion has some resistance. Move one so that it drops in then push up to get other in place. Let them come together and hold these in place.
The two smaller pieces will close the cover. Put the hole of the closer piece over the pin. Then move slightly so you can retract spring with a small instrument and subsequently engages pin on closer. Place top black piece back on, then silver.
This worked for me, hope it does you also! Good luck.
