Lens will not open!

When I turn the camera on, the lens zooms out as usual, but the lens cover itself will not open. It literally stopped opening in the middle of the day yesterday. Any advice? Thanks!

This troubleshooting can be due to dirt in the lens cover, needs to be cleaned.

When opening len cover I get display on monitor

I do not have a solution to this, but do share the same problem. This was my first digital camera and I was quite happy with the quality of the pictures until it stopped working. I have replaced the camera a long time ago, but wanted to give this little guy a second chance. I have tried to keep the lens open with a piece of tape, and am thinking of breaking it apart to see if I can remove the cover. Any ideas, anyone?

Lens cover stays open

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, and it will void your warranty):

Frozen lens and shutter

Press the power button on and hold it down while extending and twisting the telescopic zoom lens. It might fix your problem. In any case it could not make it worse Good luck!

Zoom lens won't retract

Usually down to the lens block assy being faulty.Is the lens retracting and opening properly?.It usually turns out to be worn gears in the lens drive assy or the result of a fall.Either way will be expensive repair!My advise is check and see whether camera is covered by insurance for accidental knocks.,

Cover open, camera does not turn on.

Completely open lens cover by sliding the lens cover all the way to the right until you hear two clicks. The first click will put the camera into playback mode. The second click will put the camera into shooting mode.
