I have two Canon Power shots---the A610, and the A630. The lens cover is starting to hang on my 630 when the lens retracts.
If the lens is extended, take your fingertip and try to move the cover a bit to see if it springs open. If not, then the mechanism within the lens needs to be replaced.
Canon makes a great camera, and I would tell you to try to have it fixed if it costs less than 75 dollars. At 75-100 dollars it's a toss-up. More than a 100 dollars---it's your call.

It's not really a problem if the lens cover isnt there. The following actually shows how to repair a broken lens cover. But have a feeling yours may be damaged beyond repair, so the next option is removal of the shutters. Be careful that you don't get any of the rubbing alcohol that's spoken of in the following procedures on the lens itself.
