I think, lubricant is not so intelligent to reach there.

The tiny "shutters" which protect

You can disassemble them, clean them and then replace them or just remove them completely. A complete kit of all the parts (including the double sided tape you are going to need if you take it apart) can be purchased for about $20. You can also have it fixed for you for about $45 total.

Hope this helps!

As I turn my camera right to left or the reverse slowly, it seems to be jerky and makes a noise which the movie camera picks up. How can I take off the head to lubricate it.

Go anywhere on that camera with lubricant and you will basically destroy your camera. Over time even the oils from your hands will affect the operation of the camera. There are no user lubricating points on any camera film or digital and only a qualified camera repair person with the correct lubricate should ever apply lube.

What you are seeing and hearing is the camera constantly focusing and shifting the zoom to the focus spot. The image will appears as if you are looking through some warped piece of glass crinkled until focus can be established.

You didn't say what camera it was (is) so I'm going to assume it's a still camera with video capabilities. If this is the case you are not looking at the "real" image you are looking at a digital rendition which constantly changes focus. The auto focus is electrical over mechanical so you will hear a slight clicking sound each time it focuses.

I know this isn't going to help you with your question but maybe it will prevent you from killing your camera with some type of spray lub

your best bet is to gently wiggle the lens - try to open it and assist it to open - try to close it and assist it to close - a drop or two of electronic such as Max Professional Electronics Lubricant for Electronics - for about $10. and repeat to assist it along...

I have a sony cyber-shot dsc-w30 and the setting dial is loose just a tap and it switches functions... Can i fix this?

Setting dial has internal carbon coating that seems worn out so it can not be fixed by cleaning etc.
Replace setting dial as it calls Control Switch Block and part number is as follows:
147958411... CONTROL SW BLOCK (SW110T) (W30)
Available with Part Store for $25 and handy person can replace it easily by taking apart camera carefully.

My camera will no longer connect with my P.C

So it used to connect OK and now it won't, right?
1 - Make sure that your camera battery is fully charged.  Camera-to-PC transfer needs plenty of power.
2 - You will switch to the data transfer position by turning a dial to the transfer setting (marked with a wavey line with arrows at each end) or pressing a button with the same marking.  If it's the dial, turn one position beyond the transfer setting and come back to it - now try to take a shot.  If its the button, press it and try to take a shot.  If the camera takes the shot, turn the dial away and back again, or press the button again.  If the camera still takes the shot, you have a faulty switch.
Mt advice is to always use a card reader anyway, but either the card reader or the camera should show up as another drive in "My Computer" - Windows, or straight onto the desktop (Apple).  A faulty switch could cost more than the camera is worth, but card readers are really cheap.

On power up, lens assy does not fully extend

I'm surprised the sprays you've put into your lens assembly haven't seeped all over your lens elements yet...when that happens, maybe you will have learned a valuable lesson.

A540 - how do i take it apart?

Dial does not need to come off. The case halves will come apart with a little work. Did you get the screw in the battery compartment?

Camera-video mode

Is it a switch or a dial? have you tried new batteries?have you removed them and let the camera sit with the batteries out over night? The button or mode switch could be bad.
