I used a silicone lubricant and worked it on and off a number of times. The a510 a520 seen to suffer the same malady. It worked for me . Sometimes when the camera sits, the first time you turn it on, it will stick. a slight jarring will revive the action again or simply turning it on and off a few times. Seems like the shutter springs are weak on those models
