Hey prezzie

try bending the cam towards the fornt end of the lens with its protector on. then strongly tap the lens cover going downward. what we want to do is to release the jam by doing this. but dont overdo it! you might damage other internal parts by banging it too much.

    before you think of buying a new one, you must first determine if the spring lens can be fixed or not. buying a new cam would be great but you might still have the chance to fix that.

Take battery off and put back in after a couple of minutes.

    Try also helping the lens our gently with your fingernails whaen you restart the camera. Another way to unlock the lens is tapping gently with the palm of your hand at the back of the camera, while you start it up.
    If the above easy fixes do not work there will be the need to open the metal cover holding the lens together and having the lens unlocked, at this point you should also consider contacting a repair service.

    Yes, the others way are the above, you can also try blowing the lens shutter with air, in case dust is keeping it stuck.
    If all the above does not work you need to remove shutter holder and disassemble part of the shutter mechanism.

    I agree, it is not a difficult fix, get a quotation from a repair shop in your area, it can be less expensive than expected.
