Lens cover mechanism sticking SD1200 IS
Has anyone else had a problem with the lens cover mechanism on their SD1200 IS (or similar) camera? I've had my camera for about 6 months and have found that the mechanism sticks when I shut off my camera (thereby leaving the lens partially exposed) - the top lever closes, but the bottom stays in the open position even after the lens has retracted. I find it takes about 20 tries of power on/power off and "flicking" of the lens before the lever unsticks and closes. I don't want to keep doing that as I don't want to damage any of the lens components, but I also don't want to leave the lens exposed when I put it away. The repair was quoted at $129 plus shipping to the repair facility (and a cost of a new one is about $150). It was a present so I don't have a receipt for warranty work. Any help is greatly appreciated.
