The lens cover on my Nikon Coolpix S6100 will not close completely. How do I repair?
This is a problem with many different manufacturer cameras, including Nikon.
I simply don't do anything unless the blade that does not retract is interfering with a proper photograph, in which case I just open it manually with slight finger pressure.
Many Canon point and shoots have legendary leaf problems, and a little pressure opens them quickly.
Don't try to repair it. That's when people get into trouble.
Some people suggest blowing air but most people use a spray like Dustoff which has oil in it, so I don't recommend that.
If you have a quality bulb-type air blower, they are very effective.
What works best for me however is a vacuum cleaner and the little attachment that is for getting between shade slats.

Focus error finepix hs10
About the HS10 autofocus problem, I discovered the cause and solution. It is a problem of camera design, and is caused by three screws securing the CCD sensor. These screws are not properly secured and the vibration eventually dropping.
In two cameras with the same defect, the screws were loose. These screws adjust the sensor position relative to the lens and the sensor is loose when out of position not allowing proper focus.
The solution is to disassemble the camera and secure the screws.
These screws can not be too tight they need to be adjusted to position the CCD sensor correctly. The camera is difficult to dismantle because several wires are soldered.
Care must be taken to discharge the capacitor of the flash, this may cause an electric shock and burn the camera board.
Those who want to try the repair, follow the link to the service manual.
