Question about Cameras

2 Answers

I have a great looking Contaflex IV; however, the last owner removed the entire lens housing (not just the small interchangeable lens) and couldn't get it back together. Neither can I. As far as I can see, the camera and the lens housing are both in good condition, but I can't seem to reunite them. How can I do it, or must I resort to a camera repair shop? -- Lee Probst

I'm not sure how to explain this, but I think the glass of the lens of the digicam is gone. Like in the lens, there's usually a really small hole, then a glass that protects it, right? When I got...

If the lens element is missing there's no way to repair or replace it without having that exact same lens to take apart for the missing piece. It's easier and faster to look for a refurbished lens online and just swap it out. Don't know your camera model so I can't help with pricing. Hope this helps!

How do you remove the kodak p880 lens?

You don't. It's a fixed lens and is not interchangeable.

The camera just looks rather like an interchangeable lens SLR camera

2000 ford windstar how to install front blinker bulb

The entire headlamp housing assembly sits inside of a mounting bracket - this means it is very easy to fully release, and remove the headlamp to make bulb replacement much less *painful*!

There are 2 headlight retainer clips to find - they are:

1. black, upside-down L-shaped metal clips about 1/2 inch wide
2. located just behind the top edge of the headlamp glass, inside the engine compartment. (Do not confuse these with the two small lens clips)

Release by pulling the top towards you while pulling the clips upward. The headlamp assembly will now pull forward providing great access to the electrical connector and bulb retainer ring.

Lens error: camara has broken gears in lens assembly

Hi kevin3738 and a_nester

ok for kevin3738,
im thinking that since you said your lens doesn't extend all the way out that maybe you might have cracked a gear in the lens housing, the mechanism to extend that is located when you open the camera and take off the front face plate, on the right side of the lens housing **silver part** you see a black plastic casing attached to a motor on top and screws in it, that is what moves the lens housing in and out, in that are a few gears, i think 4 of them lat move the housing, 3 small ones and one big one that reaches down to the bottom of the housing, they are interchangable but im not sure as to where you could find a gear to replace the broken or cracked one,

And for a_nester
im gonna take a guess at what exactly the problem is on your camera, and it might be the lens autofocus
in that case you can look here

Built-in lens

The built-in lens "all-in-one" designed to be digital, which means it is specifically matched to the CCD. Cameras offering interchangeable lenses are designed for 35mm film, which usually does not have sufficient resolution for a Megapixel CCD sensor. When interchangeable lenses are removed from the body, the CCD and internal mechanisms are exposed to dust in the environment. Contaminants are a much bigger problem on digital cameras since the CCD is much smaller that a 35mm film plane. One of the primary reasons for using interchangeable lenses is for a wide variety of focal lengths. The E-20N contains a 4x optical zoom 9mm-36mm (35mm-140mm equivalent in 35mm photography) built-in lens. In addition, there are wide angle, telephoto and macro add-on lenses. Some interchangeable lenses cost as much as the E-20 camera itself. Other lenses that were originally designed for film cameras do not deliver same focal length on a film camera as a digital camera. For example, a wide-angle 28mm lens attached to a digital camera would only provide 56mm equivalence. This system offers great flexibility and will suit approximately 95% of most shooting needs.
