Common problem with automatic lens covers. I use a toothpick to manually open the lens with the camera on. The use some glue, small amount on the lens cover to glue it open. Then I would carry it in a carry bag.

Cant take cover of wont slide off


Hi,
To remove the side cover: There's a small pin in the back which you'll have to press it down and slide the cover at the same time. (It's has a L shape plastic covering the pin.. Sometimes if the plastic cover is lost just press tha pin down)

Good Luck

Camera lens cover is sticky


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):

The lens cover wont open


If debris like sand or dirt get into the mechanism which closes that cover it will jam shut. Try gently placing something pointy in the gap between the two blades of the cover. Do not force them apart, if this is going to work they should free with very little pressure. Be very careful not to touch the lens especially if you are using something metal to separate the cover.
