    I have a Minolta Xt and messed up the lens cover using a large lens pen to
    clean the lens the other day when I got some rain drops on it. I evidently
    knocked the lens cover off the track. I called around and the best price to
    get it fixed was $45.00 plus shipping. Konica-Minolta has a flat max rate
    of $110.00. So what was there to lose? I filed down an eye-glass fix it
    screwdriver to fit the screws on the camera and split the cases. Really
    easy. No parts flew out either! A simple touch of my finger to the lens
    cover popped it on track and it works fine. A couple of the screws are
    shorter than the others, so rememeber where they go. I got the camera back
    together with no parts left over! Oh, it is really easy to replace the
    tripod socket in the event this gets stripped too. So, in the event I
    inadvertenly knock this little cover off track again--no worrys for this
    out-of-warranty camera!
