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.

SOURCE: 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.

this has happened to me also. Even with lorraine's tip it did not work. Something with the lens was jammed and it ended up being stuck half way open. I ended up having to pry them off (gently) with tweezers (not for eyebrows). Now I just have to make sure no one touches it and I have my case and I clean it. This is last resort though.

Why wont the lens open


hello, the lens will not open for the following reasons
1. if the battery is dead, replace or re-charge the battery or use a a/c adapter if available
2. dust in the crevices of the cover, bang the camera with your hand gently this will dislodge the dust and cover mechanism will become free, you may also tap the cover with your forefinger on lens edge, take rubber bulb blower , blow air thoroughly in the crevices of the cover
hope it helps and your camera works

My canon hf 200 automatic lens cover will not open



The lens cover mechanism in these cameras is susceptible to debris and requires disassembling the camera to repair. This can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem due to the fact that the camera will need to be partially disassembled and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

When turn it on the lens will come out but the cover that is over the glass part of the lens wont open


This is a common problem to deal with in all these type of cameras. You can take the camera apart going slowly and you will need a small philips and straight screwdriver. It is easy to do but time consuming. Once you get the lens apart you can see the spring that holds onto the side and either super glue it if the plastic is broken or remove it all together. I would rather try to fix it. Let me know how it goes.
