Question about Canon PowerShot A610 Digital Camera
The lens cover does not close completely while the camera is off. The lens cover does not open completely when the camera is turned on. The camera functions properly. You can see the print in the viewfinder, but when you download pics to computer the corner is black where the lens cover is still opened.
Try this as a last resort. This blog post outlines repair procedures for a stuck lens covers. An A400 is used as an example. But for the A620, you might want to extend your zoom all the way out before removing the camera's batteries. Also you'll be applying the ring loosening rubbing alcohol along the barrel's perimeter instead of the front as shown in the procedures.:
Good luck, and remember do this only as a very last resort. Oh, and please post how it went should you decide to try the repair.

Fixing the lense costs in Germany approximately 130?. If it is a mechanically problem, the warranty might not cover it, because they say it was damaged by somebody.

Have you tried Canon customer support? If the camera is new[ish] you may get it fixed under warranty. A repair price will be high. You could just gently push it back. Or compose your picture to miss that side of the image
