Clean your dvd player's lens using a lens cleaner. You can purchase it through your local workshops. If you don't have lens cleaner, remove thecover of the player and dismantle the upper assembly that protects the lens. Make sure that the unit is unplugged before doing this to avoid any laser burns. Clean the lens using a cotton buds with a drop of alcohol. CAUTION :DO NOT TOUCH THE LENS WITH YOUR FINGER.
If you've recently dropped the camera you may have lens damage that is causing the camera to shut down. If you haven't dropped it, your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try solution before you do anything else:
Step1: Remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper).
Step2: Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced.
Step3: Remove the lens from the camera. Put the body cap on the camera, and put the rear lens cap on the back of the lens. Make sure you are in a clean environment.
Step 4: Take the rear cap off the lens and use the blower to blow large pieces of dust off the lens. Go around the entire rear part of the lens with the blower.
Step 5: Dip the swab in the isopropyl alcohol or cleaning solution. You should use only a light amount; the best way to ensure this is to wear light vinyl gloves, like those used by health care providers, and squeeze the swab with your fingers after dipping it in the solution. Gently clean the contacts on the lens with the swab. After you have done so, use the blower on the lens contacts again.
Step 6: Repeat the procedure on the contacts on the camera body.
Step 7: Reattach the lens to the camera and test it to see if the error or focusing problems still exist. If they do, try cleaning the contacts again.
Hi Robert, I think I can help. I recently found this site with a lot of information about star wars model kit.
Go to this link about the AMT Millenium Falcon Cut-away version http://www.starwarsmodels.com/mfca.html
There is a download link to the right which contains the original instructions. Even if you don't have the cut-away version I'm sure this will help!
I just finished unsuccessfully repairing my FE-280. It had a sticking lens. I got the lens assembly out to try to clean it, but there is no way to get inside the zoom mechanism. Replacement lens assemblies are available to buy but I'm not a fan of Olympus mechanical reliability now.
Take off the obvious screws to get the back off. Don't try to remove the front. Note where every screw goes and keep them in order. Work the top of of the back cover off by rocking it. Unsnap the LCD from its clips and pull out the flex cable connectors. Remove the screws holding the perimeter of the black plastic lens. assembly. Beware that there may be a stored charge on the flash. located behind the flash and close to the screw by the lens assembly flex cable.
By the way, an initial cleaning by using a shop vac on the lens from the outside while opening and closing it worked for a while.
HI, you will need to preform a lens cleansing by using a cleaning disc. try to recover lens function be cleaning the lens with a good len cleaning disc. if the lens cleaner dose not fix this issue, this will confirm optical lens assembly failure and, you will need to replace the lens assembly in this case.
Just to make sure that this isn't a control fault, unplug the PS2 for 5 minutes. if the unit still freezes up or , the unit will not play the disc, replace the optical lens assembly.
Problem has been solved. I very gently pulled on both ends of the lens assembly and it popped off. The white plastic pieces housed plastic attachment 'tabs'. They can snap right back in place once pulled out to put assembly back.
