Question about Cameras
Happened to me before. NO Problem!!! The mechanical lens cover is "powered" by a small spring. When a little bit of dust/dirt/sand gets into the track it slides in, i gets stuck. CAREFULLY open the lens cover (maybe with the help of a toothpick) and clean its track. If you're not confident in your ability to do this without breaking something, bring it to any camera repair shop.

Sounds like the gears are stuck, the motor is bad or that the potmeter is bad. The only way to fix this is that the camera has to be opened. If you are sending it to repair make sure that it is not to costly to fix. Most times spending a hundred extra dollars would buy you a new camera then repairing the old one.
