    When starting the camera, the lens cover does not fully open and has to be nudged gently. And when shutting off, the lens cover does not always fully close.
    Suspect this fragile cover was accidentally pushed in and distorted slightly?
    Any easy fixes?

My nikon D3100 got wet from rain...what will i do?

Remove the battery imediately, the memory card and the lens. Place the camera body, lens and memory card in a warm dry and place for several days to dry out completely.
When the camers is dry, insert the battery, lens and memory card, turn on the camers and set the date and time.
If the camers does not work charge the battery and try again.
If it still does not work then you need to send it to the Nikon service centre for repair.

When I turn off my CoolPix S6 the lens would close completely. When I turn on my camera the lens is completely open and the screen just says lens cover error.

The lens is damaged and needs to be replaced. Sometimes with use or maybe an accidental hit to the lens can cause a malfunction to the camera resulting in that error. Also if you for example took the camera to the beach, getting something like sand in the camera can jam up the lens and prevent it from fully extending or retracting.

My camers fell down and the shutter is not closing. The screen is fine n the images are fine too. There is a message that says close the power and try again. what do i do

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.

My camer's lens is not going back in, and it's

Make like Michael Jackson and Beat it!

A bit of tiny grit can catch and stop the lens mechanism. Tapping the camera on the body or thumping it somewhat firmly & delicatelyonto a padded flat urface may help. Run a vacuum near the len and cycle it a few times after it works.
Beating these cameras is a strangely common technique.

Lens stuck, green Power light flashes, nothing happens.

get a butter knife or any thin object like that and use it to push out the lens and turning it on at the same time  you will hear a clicking noise which is normal  once completely out, use your hand with a gentle but firm presure move it form left to right 
and then hopefully it should work after that

Shutter problem

sand in the mechanism? Or other kind of wearout... If the lens cover does not open completely due to some mechanical problem, the camera will not work (there are switches to detect cover full open and full closed). Probably needs some repair, cleaning or replacing the cover gears
