RX100 iv lens cover sticks

I have an RX100 iv that takes great pictures, but the little metal fins that cover the lens when it's off no longer retract properly. When i turn it on, they open about 3/4 of the way, and I need to flick them with a fingernail or they stay in front of the lens.

This is a nuisance, makes it really hard to use the polarizing filter I bought, and eventually I'll touch the lens and scratch it.

Can this be fixed? Any suggestions? Is the vii so much better I should just buy it?

TIA
