I assume you're referring to the rubber cover on the left side of the body, if so, just get some black gaffer tape from your local camera shop. It holds very well and does not leave any residue on the body.

Help me to turn on my camera to access my media card.


You do understand that to open the battery cover you slide it out and then up. To close the cover it must be in the out position when you close it and then slide the cover in. If the cover is broken you can put it in position and tape it shut.

I have a casio exilim ex-z280 and when i turn the camera on, the lens keeps closing, and stays shut. So all you can see is the shut lens on the screen. It was working last night, Now its not. Thanks...


Hi,
Make sure that battery cover closed properly & the memory card is place rightly while camera is ON,
May be battery is not holding charge or possibly loose contact between camera & the battery terminal, Make sure that your battery is fully charged & place battery in battery terminal in right direction (+,-), Sometimes battery terminal gets dirty, wipe it with clean dry cloth, There could be possible that your charger is faulty and not allow battery to charge. I would recommend you to try replacing new battery before sending your device to service center.

Camera model SL620. Lens cover does not automatically fully retract. A small portion blocks the top and bottom of the lens but will retract if touched. Tried blowing dry air on the cover and wiping with a...


Apparently the lens has had some kind of impact to cause the lens cover to be bent a little. What happens is that the lens cover holder , or ring, on the end becomes bent or misshaped to a degree. This then causes a binding effect on the diaphragm assembly.
What I have done is to very carefully (while using good magnification) pry up on the edges of the lens cover metal edging on the inside edges. This will release the pressure on the lens cover diaphragms.
But, be advised that this is can harm the lens cover more, unless you are extremely cautious. That means to use a small screwdriver or some such tool to pry up on the inside edges carefully.
Also be advised that too much pressure can cause the whole ring which holds the diaphragm assembly together can pop up and off. Then the whole assembly can come apart, and that is very hard and can be tedious to put back together.

The lens cover does not open all the way. I have to use my fingernail to do it.


It is either bent or has grit and dirt in between the slides. Try using canned compressed air, such as you use to clean a computer keyboard with, to blow air between the slides. If that does not work, even though you will have to be very careful, while the lens cover is closed put a single drop of WD40 on the cover and spread it with a Qtip over the entire cover surface. Holding the camera, front facing down, try turning it on and off several times. If that frees the lens cover, turn the camera off and wipe the surface of the closed lens cover with a soft tissue to clean the WD40 from the surface. Make sure then that your lens is clean before using the camera. If the lens cover is bent, then none of this will work.

Lens cover stuck open


I recently had the lens cover stick partly open.  There are 4 segments to the lens cover, and if we number them from the top, number 2 was not closing.
I gently flicked the segments a few times, in case there was a grain of dirt causing it to stick (although the camera has never been in a dirty or dusty environment).  This caused the lens cover to close fully each time, but now it would not open fully, segment 1 would not open, although it would stay open if moved by finger.
Anyway, after a bit of fiddling, I got it working properly again.  The way that the lens cover appears to work is that only segments 2 and 3 are pushed open or shut by springs, segments 1 and 4 are pushed open and shut by tiny tabs that catch on segments 2 and 3.  If the segments somehow get pushed out of alignment, then they either bind (causing the cover not to shut), or they get disconnected (causing the cover not to open fully.
Now I am not sure exactly what I did to get the mechanism form the stuck open state to the not opening state, but from there the way to fix it is to:
-With the lens open...
- Hold segment 2 in the closed position with firm finger pressure (which will tend to push it towards the lens).
- Push segment 1 towards the open position until you can see that it has cleared the edge of segment 2.
- Lift segment 2 way from the lens so that it will rub past segment 1 as you...
- Move segment 1 to the open position.
- Repeat if necessary to get the technique right.

I can't provide any guarantees, and I am not about to repeat the excercise on my camera, but it was a lot easier than sending it off for repair.

Lens cover


I know this is an old post, but for those who want to fix it themselves: 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):
