I slipped while hiking and sat on my Canon PowerShot SC 210 IS which was in my back pocket (dumb). The shutter cover now does not fully close nor open. I can move it open with my finger, but it will not close fully. There is a visible dent in the rim around the lens cover shutter thingy. Am I screwed?

Lens Error I fell while holding my camera. The lens was open at the time and when I got up I turned the camera off. I then turned it back on to check it and the lens opened and immediately closed with the "lens error" on the screen. I can turn it off and on and the lens will always open but closes as soon as it has opened with the lens error on the screen. The shutter opens but closes also, like the lens. Can this be fixed? It was a gift so I don't have the bill of sale but I still have the orig

My Panasonic DMC-TZ3 lens cover gets stuck and won't open completely. It has been getting worse. If I CAREFULLY assist it, it will fully open. I don't remember any trauma, such as dropping the camera. I've had it almost a year and a half and the problem started about 6 months ago. I am going on a big trip in a week and need a reliable camera. Thanks! Bradley

Slider Prob I've had my S30 for quite a while and lately i've had some problem with the slider opening up. Dont know if something got in between the slider and the cam or something. Anyway with some trouble i could still open up the slider and thus start up my cam but then one day when i was trying to close my cam i started to slide it to close. Finally it closed and i slided the slider onto the lens but then the lens started to open up again. But the slider was in the way so the lens opened up

When I turn the camera on, the lens cover opens and then closes. When I turn the camera off, the lens cover closes and then opens. So, how can I get the timing of the lens cover correct? Or can you tell me how I can keep the lens cover open all the time? (not the best solution but now I can't take a photo at all!)
