Lens opening/closing seems labored; need cleaning and/or lubrication?
On a Canon A560 I've owned since new, the opening and closing of the lens sounds louder, more labored, than when new. I'm fairly sure the camera hasn't been used enough to be worn out and it has been carefully treated so no dust, dirt or grit should have gotten in to create the problem. Is cleaning and/or lubrication likely the solution and if so, where can I find a procedure for getting into the lens mechanism and what lubricant, if any, is recommended? Any other suggestions would be appreciated too.
Is this a good question?
