Question about Kyocera Finecam Cameras
Have tried taping it, but because it is sort of spring loaded it keeps popping out. Camera will not work if cover is ajar.

SOURCE: Lens cover jamming
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):

I have the same problem and after many different contraptions to try to keep it closed I simply used a ponytail holder. Just a simple brown hair elastic. (a large one) It has worked well for over a year now.

SOURCE: I'm trying to disassemble an
I found someone with the exact same problem, and this is how they made the repair:
My Olympus SP-570uz also has a broken flash spring. I found that small a coil spring approximately 3/16" max diameter and approximately 7/8" to 1" long can be inserted in the flash cavity when it is open - place on the right side (looking at the front of the camera) in the area that does not interfere with the small latch that locks the flash in the down position. The coil spring will need to compress enough to allow the flash to close completely.
I realize that this is not how to open the camera to to make the repair the way Olympus would do it, but it may be worth trying before attempting open it without forcing it or while waiting for dis-assembly instructions.
