Kodak V610 - lens cover won't open

\015 One day it wouldn't shut. Now it won't open. If i want to take pictures, I have to manually hold the cover to the side. Kodak's solution is to send it in and spend at least $150 to maybe fix it. Anyone else have a better idea?\015\012(battery is charged)\015
