Tz2 panasonic lens cover repair


I had a camera with this problem once - a friend took some photos at the beach and filled it with sand!

Try obtaining some compressed air and blasing it out.
A little WD40 (directed with care) should get that lens cover closing nicely, provided there is no debris.

Camera lens cover is sticky


Try blowing lots of compressed air around the open lens shutter to clean the mechanism. Or use a hair dryer for a few seconds (don't want to heat up the camera). Also with the lens barrel extended and pointed downward, tap the lens barrel with a pencil while you extend and retract the lens by powering the camera on and off. A grain of sand in the mechanism is usually the culprit, and you want to try to dislodge it.

You can open it up, but only as a very last resort. The above procedures usually work if you try them enough. But for those particularly nasty stuck mechanisms, here's an example repair on a Canon Powershot A400 (do this at your own risk):

My lens cover can't open and close completely.


Have you tried Canon customer support? If the camera is new[ish] you may get it fixed under warranty. A repair price will be high. You could just gently push it back. Or compose your picture to miss that side of the image

Lens cover sticks closed.


If you're careful this problem is a relatively easy fix for many digital cameras. The design of the lens cover mechanism is usually simple and very similar throughout camera brands. Here's an example fix for a Canon A400 with similar problems:
