Having problems with your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-H70 Digital Camera ?

Camera Lens Won't Open/Close on their own.

\015 Hi. Before I say anything, I have to tell you that I'm not very good with electronic parts, so I'll just make a "description" of what it is. I accidentally dropped my camera when it was still on. Works perfectly fine, but the camera len's cover (The thing that open and closes when you turn the camera on and off to see through the viewfinder). I can definitely see a small dent on the outside of the lens. If I'd want to use it, I'd have to use my fingers and force them to open/close. But I'm pretty sure that will just make a smudge or even scratch the lens. Is there anyway I can fix it, without having to go to a shop?\015

Does anyone have instructions for getting at the lens mechanism? I totally understand the risks of doing this myself, but the cost of getting a shop to do this is nearly as much as a new camera! I am sure the problem is caused by sand. The lens at first just went in and out a few time, before the camera turned off. I vacuumed it, then slapped it against the side of my hand whilst turning it on - now it turns on properly with the lens out, but it wont focus - so you can only take blurry photo
