Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ7 Digital Camera
I wonder if you have any tips on taking apart a Lumix lens. I was inspired by one of your posts about taking apart a camera with a stuck lens, and mine is now in pieces, but I can't quite get to where I think the sand might be making the lens stick, and I wonder if you have any suggestions. I have the cylindrical lens part detached from the rest of the camera, but the black plastic casing seems to be attached to the rest of the lens without screws for me to undo.
Thanks for any help!

Please see below for a link to the Lens Cap with String. This is an original part direct from Panasonic. Used specifically with this camera.

SOURCE: Stuck Lens
It seems that the lens is stuck.
If you can repair it i have the repair manual, if not i can repair this problem, I'm not shure if i allowed to send our repairadress in the Netherlands we replaced a few gears or repair the damage into the lensunit.

Hi Sarah I am Vortash it shouldnt need to be a new camera a good clean out by an engineer should cure the problem provided you havent tried to force the lens back in if it was out , he will clean it with white spirit or alchahol and re set the lens mechanism and it shuold be fine .. but get an estimate first as the economics may be in favour of a new camera if it would cost too much .. in the uk here we charge approx $25 for that but it may be more over the pond .. regards Vortash

To fix the lens is probably not your kind of work, and now you may be better to sell this camera for parts on a site like Ebay.
Not a good idea to try to fix it.
