Canon sd850 lens won't open

\015 I took this camera to the beach so I'm sure sand got inside. The lens won't open and I get a "lens error" message. I've tried all things I've found on internet -- removing battery, card, etc; smacking camera in vartious ways, and plugging it into computer before starting it. No dice.\015\012\015\012There is more space on one side of the lens than the other but since the lens is closed I can't figure out how to manipulate it. Other ideas short of opening it?\015
