Partially closed lens when powering on Canon A520 Camera
When first turning on my Canon A520 camera, the lens cover doesn't retract fully, covering up two corners of my image. Simply tapping it with my finger makes the cover fully retract, but I sometimes forget in a rush to do that, and find the corners of my picture are covered
Thanks in advance

The lens cover of PSA60 opens along with the move of the objective lens. Normally the camera will sound an error beep when the lens does not end to the end position -- the lens cover is also not fully opened. In reverse, the lens will be retracted when the camera is switched off. The "shutter" (outside lens cover) might have something stuck inside the blades or other mechanical parts that prevents the lens cover fully closed. Try to blow with a clean air (no hot air - because it can damage the electronics or plastics). Or maybe the blades are probably not flat that may create resistance on the surface. Try to flatten the blades by hands. Or maybe the mechanical systems need to be calibrated (by Canon service center). My suggestion, try to exchange/trade-in your PSA60 with the latest model at the Canon center, because I have done it last year (trade-in with PS S5IS).
This is a common problem for the A520 (it happens on mine sometimes). Recommend trying only the simple fixes listed on the following web page, but do not recommend opening the front cover which is also listed here. The A520 is a little tricky getting back together.
brother the camera gear system has got problems it seems. it happens due to misplacement of gears inside it. even tough u can do it manually dont take risk of doing it manually untill u have full knowledge of internal parts. am from chenai. here in our service centre it costs around 1800 rupees for servicing it. so better take it to service centre.
