Try this as a last resort. This blog post outlines repair procedures for a stuck lens covers. An A400 is used as an example. But for the A620, you might want to extend your zoom all the way out before removing the camera's batteries. Also you'll be applying the ring loosening rubbing alcohol along the barrel's perimeter instead of the front as shown in the procedures.:
Good luck, and remember do this only as a very last resort. Oh, and please post how it went should you decide to try the repair.

Borrow a friends camera or buy another.
The motorized lens assembly is contaminated, and
your only recourse is to replace the entire assembly.
It has very close tolerances and even replacing it is no guarantee that all the sand particles could be cleaned out of the camera body.
Sorry. No easy fix this time.

Have same problem when camera is used underwater. Take out battery and xd card. Put camera in front of fan with lid open and facing fan for several hours.

Your lens is defective needs to be cleaned, repaired or replaced. If you got sand in the gears it will definitely jam up the lens! Sometimes you can tear down the lens and clean out the sand, and if none of the gears are damaged the lens will then work properly again.
There are online places that will do it for a decent price and there are others that overcharge by way too much.
I know this because I OWN ONE that charges a reasonable price to do the repair! (Google 'darntoothysam')
Just let us know if we can help! Good luck from

THIS SOUNDS TERMINAL, BUT YOU MIGHT TRY USING CANNED AIR LIKE YOU USE TO BLOW DUST OUT OF YOUR COMPUTER, AND SEE IF IT HELPS ANY. MOST OF THESE CAMERAS ARE MADE WITH THE IDEA THAT THEY WILL NEVER BE TAKEN APART OR OPENED FOR CLEANING ETC. SO, THAT IS THE ONE PROBLEM YOU ARE FACING. I DOUBT IF IT WOULD BE WORTH SPENDING THE MONEY TO SEND IT IN TO BE CLEANED. THAT CAN GET VERY EXPENSIVE IN A HURRY, PLUS TAKE A GOOD MONTH OR MORE FOR THE REPAIR. SORRY, I CAN'T HAVE MORE CHEERY NEWS, BUT THINGS LIKE THIS JUST AREN'T TAKEN INTO ACCORD WHEN THEY MAKE THESE CAMERAS. IF I CAN HELP MORE JUST REPLY TO:
