Question about Canon PowerShot SD600 Digital Camera
There are two ribbons which need attached and I know where the smaller one goes but cannot figure out where the larger one goes?
For the lens cover issue: 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 for others note that it will void your warranty):

What ribbon cables are you trying to install? Would this be the LCD+Backlight cables? Or the Lens+CCD cables?
As for the lens cover, http://stores.ebay.com/DarnToothySam has lens flap/cover repair, email him if you don't see your camera there.
