THE LENS COVER CAME LOOSE WHEN I OPENED IT UP THE HOLE AT THE TOP OF THE LENS COVER SEEMS TO BE MISSING A GASGET THAT HOLDS IT IN PLACE WHILE THE BOTTOM HOLE ON THE LENS SLIDES IT OPEN AND CLOSED. IT JUST WILL NOT STAY IN PLACE WITH NOTHING TO HOLD THE TOP HOLE IN PLACE. CAN THIS PART BE REPLACED. OR IS THERE SOMEWHERE I CAN SEE A PICTURE OF WHAT THIS LOOKS LIKE WHEN THE COVER OF THE CAMERA IS REMOVED AND THE LENS IS WORKING PROPERLY.

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?

Hubby put our daughter's Nikon Cool Pix in his pocket, bent over and now the lens cover is stuck partly open, and won't close all the way. The camera says "lens error". I have tried to close and open the cover, it just springs back to the partly opened position. I haven't seen this particular problem covered yet. What now?

My camera turns on by itself even with the slide in front in the closed position. The screen then shows the warning that the lens cover is closed. When I open and reclose the lens cover in 10 or so seconds the camera turns itself back on and repeats with the lens cover closed warning. The only way for me to turn the camera off at this point is to remove the battery. Help!
Most likely some dirt, dust, or other particle is jamming the lens opening gears. You can try to spray some compressed air into the lens assembly, hopefully dislodging whatever is obstructing the lens cover. If this doesn't work, the camera wil ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T77 Digital Camera

Fuji a345 I have a 2 year old Fuji a345 which periodically has a problem with the lens cover not opening and, of course, the lens not extending into position when the camera is powered on. Generally turning the camera off and on a few times will eventually result in the lens cover opening and allowing the lens to extend into proper position for shooting pictures. Any ideas.
