this is easy to fix. in fact, i just did it on my camera about 2 minutes ago and came back to this post because i was originally looking for a solution myself. anyway, you have to be a little bit rough with the camera to fix it. on the outer lens cover you will notice that there is a metal cover on top of the plastic slider. you need to pry the two apart. there is some seriously sticky tape that is holding the metal cover to the plastic, so you need to be careful that you don't rip the whole thing off. once inside you will see a copper contact that (when you slide the lens cover) makes contact with another piece of metal. when i took a look at mine, it was covered in a bunch of lint. i used a q-tip to clean both contacts and then made sure that they were properly aligned. after that, i slid the lens cover back down and voila! works everytime now. use some superglue to put the metal cover back on again.

I know this is an old post, but for those who want to fix it themselves: 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):

SOURCE: how to unprotect the memory card
the problem isnt with your camera, its your memory card, and it isnt a problem at all. simple solution- take out your memory card, and on the side there is a tiny switch. all you gotta do is flip the switch. quick and easy. hope that helps anyone.
