Question about Cameras
You can try spraying some compressed air in the front of the lens assembly, to try to free up the closing mech, but other than that, the camera has to be disassembled from the rear, all the way into the lens assembly to try to fix this problem, and it's an expensive fix. You might try taking it by a camera repair shop, and see if they have a trick up their sleeves, but I haven't heard of one.
If you do elect to have it repaired, get an estimate first, since the cost might just justify buying a new one on sale.
Good luck, hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa.
