    Hi, I'm looking for advice on a Canon A510. I have had it for a couple
    months and have used it about 7 times and it has worked fine.

    The lens is stuck about 2 millimeters out, the lens protector shield
    thingies are about half open. I try to turn it on and the blue canon screen
    comes on for 10 seconds then it beeps 6 time quickly and shuts off.

    I can't remember exactly what happened but I may have quickly put in my
    windbreaker pocket while it was still on and just stood in there watching
    something for a few minutes so there may have been a bit of pressure against
    the lens but I don't think anything very significant. Or, I just put it
    down while still on for a few minutes, I can't remember.

    The manual says if the lens is stuck the battery cover or memory card slot
    doors may be open but I've checked they are closed. I tried putting new
    batteries in, checkrf they installed properly etc. but nothing helps.

    I'd appreciate any suggestions

    If you've only had it for a couple of months, it's still under
    warranty, right?
    If not, call Canon support, and ask them if they can give an
    *estimate* over the phone.
