How to fix a sticky lens barrier on Canon PowerShot A1000

First, turn on the camera and remove the batteries, let the lens extend out. Use the same tool on to separate the ring.

Now you can put the batteries in and test the camera. Do the flaps open and close smoothly?
If so, final step: let the lens extend again, put on the double-sided tape and put on the ring.
