Question about Canon PowerShot A510 Digital Camera
The lens cover is stuck open and when I turn it on all it does is go to the screen that is blue and says Canon it then shut off. It will not do anything. It will not even go to the pictures stored on the memory card. I have changed the batteries and still nothing! I have no idea what else to do with it. Can you help?
A stuck lens cover is a fairly common problem, but it is normally easy to fix. A single grain of sand jamming the cover mechanism is normally the culprit, and you want to try to dislodge it. There are many non-invasive techniques that people have come up with to accomplish this. Some may be seen on this blog article. You can also open the lens barrel up to fix the covers, but only as a very last resort. The article also gives examples for this type of procedure.
