This is a common problem to deal with in all these type of cameras. You can take the camera apart going slowly and you will need a small philips and straight screwdriver. It is easy to do but time consuming. Once you get the lens apart you can see the spring that holds onto the side and either super glue it if the plastic is broken or remove it all together. I would rather try to fix it. Let me know how it goes.

Lens cover wont open


Common problem with automatic lens covers. I use a toothpick to manually open the lens with the camera on. The use some glue, small amount on the lens cover to glue it open. Then I would carry it in a carry bag.

Camera turns on but lense cover only opens half way


There are a few different things you could try. First would be to get some air in a can (available at walmart or anywhere similar) and give the lens a good cleaning with that. Also you can get a glasses cleaning cloth and wipe off the lens and if you can, manually open the non working part of the cap and clean under it.
Hope that helps!

Sure it is, and repair isn't that hard. See this link for tips on repair of sticky automatic lens covers. Recommend reading the reader's comments section of the link for additional tips. Especially pay attention to the vacuum cleaner tip.

Lens wont extend, lens error restart camera


My wife's Canon SD200 got stuck with an open lens and the E18 error. I opened the case and wiggled things and still nothing. Then, I turned the camera on and started tapping the edge of the lens casing with the magnifying glass I'd been using (need the battery and memory chip in place and make sure you've transferred pictures to your computer before trying this). Voila! The lens closed. But, of course, it wouldn't open and still gave the E18 error. Well, one good tap deserved another and Voila! again. It opened. After a few more iterations - and cleaning the lens casing each time, it was back to normal. The trick is the timing of the tapping. Just after turning on the power to the camera start tapping on the lens casing - not hard - just a light tapping. And don't tap on the glass lens itself -- you don't want to really break it.

Lens cover not opening and mode dial problems.


It is a cheap part, if you can find someone that sells it. I would sell it as-is online somewhere to recover some money.

The lens cover wont open


If debris like sand or dirt get into the mechanism which closes that cover it will jam shut. Try gently placing something pointy in the gap between the two blades of the cover. Do not force them apart, if this is going to work they should free with very little pressure. Be very careful not to touch the lens especially if you are using something metal to separate the cover.
