Having problems with your Canon PowerShot G5 Digital Camera ?

Lens adapter mount cover is broken

\015 I'm not sure how it happened since someone else did it, but that plastic ring that goes around the lens that you're supposed to be able to take off if you wanted to mount a telephoto or wide angle adapter is stuck in the wrong position and can't be taken off. \302\240No matter how hard I try to twist or pull in either direction I can't get it to come off even if I hold the release button down at the same time.\015

My powershot s80 lens cover does not slide back, as if it stuck, any suggestions? I tried to slide back the lens cover to activate the camera but the cover does not move at all. It moves only 1mm back and forth. It does'nt seem to be broken or something like that, just stuck, as if a lever does not operate and block the cover. Thanks in advance, Panagiotis

I have a nikkor 18-200 lens. the outermost ring screws into the lens glass ring with a few very tiny screws. the screws loosened and the cap fell off. nothing is broken (though auto focus no longer works with this off) but there is a solid plastic ring that covers the screw heads and i cannot see a way to access the screw heads to screw them back into the lens. it would be a simple procedure if i could access them. any ideas?

I have a canon Power Shot S50. The mechanical slider that covers the lens is loose. When I open it, it doesn't power up the camera. I suspect there is a switch underneath the cover is broken.
