Kodak DX6340 Lens Cover Does Not Open

\015 Camera takes great photos but the lens covers will not open when the lens extends. I can pry the covers open with atoothpick -- push one back and they both move. They will not latch in position and snap shud when released.\015

Answers :

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.
