I had the same issue with a different model. I forced it open slightly manually once and it was ok. I know it sounds crude. But it worked in the past.

Has the camera been dropped? If so, it's pretty much dead.

If the camera is still under warranty you should have it fixed. My old camera had the same problem when I dropped it. I just pressed down on the ring surrounding the lens until it snapped into place and it started working again. Make sure you use a fully recharged battery before turning the camera back on because the gears may need to snap back in place.

Sorry I do not. As much as I dislike this camera, that is one problem I've not had - even after dropping it in the snow twice.

I had the same problem with another model (Powershot A620). Tried to fix it myself but couldn´t. Send it better to a repair shop. Openning will only damage it more. Sorry.
