It will come off with a little care and force. it kinda just snaps in there. hold the camera with the lcd facing you and pull up on the back side and eventually it will pop right off. ive opened my PS many times before and it hasnt broke taking that off :)

Sounds like the aperture is stuck open and not able to adjust for different light conditions.
It can be difficult to see, but look down into the lens from the front and turn on the camera. Do you see a small circle open and close in the very center of the lens? Try pressing the shutter button half way (not all the way or the flash will go off in your face) while looking into the lens. See any movement? Try this in light and dark conditions.
The lens assembly will most likely need to be replaced. I took the liberty of looking up the repair price on the usa.canon.com website for you and it looks like they may repair it for a $58 flat rate!! Call 1-800-OK-CANON and ask for repairs.
Hope this helps!

To remove the paper jam, follow the procedure--- 1. Open the front cover. 2. Remove the cartridge. 3. Open the face up cover and push down the green paper release levers on both sides of the face up paper output. 4. Hold sides of the jammed paper and carefully move it inward then gently pull out. 5. Remove if any paper bits present near the rollers. 6. Don?t pull the paper upwards but straight between the rollers. Please check page#62 for details in the manual--- Canon Super G3 Fax
I have a a570 IS that the lense locked out on. fixing it was going to be the same price as buying new, so I took mine apart and after two tries, i fixed it. I would be willing to take a look at it for a heck of a lot cheaper than Canon can if your willing.
open the front cover. remove the toner cartridge/s by lifting the green lever and pulling the toner out. Open the left side door. look at where you just pulled out the toner and there is one screw (facing you) holding each drum in place - loosen the screw and pull the drum out towards you....done.
Just keep pulling on the back plate with the lcd towards you. The shiny thing will eventually pop off. It doesn't feel right while you're doing it. It feels as if you will break it. But I just kept taking the back off and it just popped off the shiny thing.
