I have a Contax T3. The external dust cover is jammed. Can it be fixed?

It can be fixed by a camera repair service, not by you.
If you move the device it could lock or and/or fail completely.

Sometimes my viewfinder goes dark and the lens' autofocus stops working. What does this mean, and how should I fix it?

In all probabilities, the mirror lock-up feature of the camera is on. When the mirror is locked in the upright position, the optical viewfinder will go blank. This will also prevent the AF from working. If the mirror lock-up feature is not on, then the camera's mirror box could have been damaged. If this is the case, then the camera would require a minor repair (alignment of mirror) by a service center.

Unit makes a clicking sound at end of the power-up sequence

Sounds like the scanning mirror might be locked - during shipping, the mirror is locked to prevent damage. Look around the back or the underside of the unit and look for a slider with a lock/unlock picture on it. Slide it to unlock and the mirror should be free to move.
