Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80 Digital Camera ?

Lens cover opens only a **** on Sony DSC-W80

\015 The lens cover on my Sony Cybershot DSC-W80 will only open a little **** every time I turn it on. I have to gently pull on the cover with a fingernail to prompt it to complete opening. When I do this very gently, it then finishes opening on its own. Any ideas of how to fix this, or am I going to have to have it repaired? Thanks!!!\015
