Re: screws

Yes, they are screws you're not going to find at the hardware store. Go to a camera store & they'll fix you right up. Yes, those screws do come loose. It really shouldn't cost much + its a good idea to keep your camera together.

Looks like a new camera to me. Can't you go back to the shop? or contact Casio, if there is still warranty o the camera?
Then again you could look if the dial was locked with a little screw, that you now lost. If it possible to lift the dial from its axe?
If so, you perhaps can fine a very little screw to fasten it again?

How to take apart a canon sd1000

Unless you are an expert at working with small parts, I would not take this camera apart for any reason, unless you don't care about it. These little cameras are extremely small and indeed can be tedious to figure out. Another thing if you want to replace a LCD, that may work, but still you must be very careful to make sure you remember by some means where each screw came from, as many cameras have many different sizes and kinds of screws. The wrong screw in the wrong place can cause a dead short and ruin the camera.
What is wrong with the camera?

Screws from sony cybershot dsc-p100 are missing

This can present a problem.
You must know what sizes the screws are. Some cameras have more than four kinds of screws on the case. If the screw is too long, then it can touch some component or the circuit board and could cause a short and ruin the camera.
Try to find someone with one like you have and get the kinds and sizes of the screws. I have Nikons, Canons, Panasonic, Sony and others and hardly any of the screws are the same in the different brands, or differ in kind such as wood type thread for plastic, fine thread, course thread and others. Plus, the sizes of the screw and the length will vary. The colors can vary as well as the type of head of the screw.
Another possibility is to get a broken camera from a site such as Ebay. Buy the camera, remove and use the screws you need, then resell the camera as a repair, as is repair camera.

Digital camera screen broken

A cracked screen will cost you, but maybe not as much as you think. Instead of replacing the whole , you can spend about $300 and replace the screen yourself. All you need is a small screwdriver.

1)Turn off the power to your screen and unplug all cables connected to it.
2)Remove the battery, if one is installed.
3)Locate the covered screws around the cracked screen. Remove the rubber/plastic covers, then unscrew the screws.
4)Gently remove the plastic frame around the cracked screen and set it aside.
5)Disconnect any power cords or cables going into the LCD screen.
6)Remove the cracked screen and slide the new screen into place. Replace any tape or plastic fasteners that hold it in place.
7)Reconnect all internal cords to the screen.
8)Screw in the frame and replace all the screw covers.
9)Reconnect the power supply and all external cables to the LCD screen and switch it on.

I have a broken battery holder that I am going to try and replace

Hey, if you want to DIY, the $1.00 BATTERY HOLDER is not the right part you wanted. The little thing doesn't come separate. What you need is called BATTERY FRAME. The tiny battery lock and spring are included in the Battery Frame.
To replace the BATTERY FRAME maybe not easy. My suggestion is take the battery lock from the new Battery Frame to replace the broken one.

Lens has become Loose

If it is at all like my C8080, there are 4 screws that hold the lens guard in place, accesible only when the case is opened. This is the fixed tube that the lens extends out of. The knurled coller is a screw on piece that allows a lens tube to be screwed on, that can be tightened by hand. If the lens itself seems kinda wobbly, that is normal and is just showing a little sign of age. It wont affect the picture. The lens rides on helical rails on a rotating inner barrel and these rails and bushings get a little worn over time.

Lens jammed

The lens needs to be removed.  The camera case can be taken apart by using a small philips screw driver and a small flat head. Take the batteries out. Have a nice flat space to lay the screws out.  Pry out the little chrome piece with the UL sticker on it. (Carefully use the flat head). Start somewhere you will remember and begin to remove the screws going clockwise around the camera.  There is a screw under the rubber flap of the "3X" chrome cover.  The top of that must be pryed out and lifted up to remove. Take the back cover off. Lift out the top of the LCD screen and remove the 4 screws that hold it in. Start a new row of removed screws. The LCD ribbon can be removed by popping the white plastic clasp up. Next remove the menu pad ribbon from the board by lightly tugging on it. You should be able to remove the front cover by lifting it up to unhook it from the top power button strip. There are 2 screws that hold the top power strip in place. There is also a plastic hook on the front side. There are 6 screws holdong the board to the frame. A different size screw is located underneath the power strip ribbon. Loosen the 2 screws holding the flash.  THe white ribbon will be the flash ribbon and the gold one next to it will be the lens ribbon. NOTICE the lens ribbon must pass under the flash.  The side with the lens will have a small board that pushes into the main board.  To seperate it, gently pry it apart with a small flathead. There is a hidden screw for the board at the top where the end of the battery compartment. It needs to be removed before the board will come out. Once the board is out, there are three screws holding the lens in the case (they are black screws, not the chrome ones)  Once they are removed, the lense will fall out. There are 3 black screws holding the largest motor on the lens.  They are above the text "Sony Lens" remove those and the gears of the lense will be able to move freely. Twist the base to get the lense unstuck.

Lcd screen comes up in spots

Once your LCD has gone blotchy, that means its probably time to get a new one. Water has either leaked inside and ruined it or there is damage in the wiring. As for opening your camera, once all screws are out, it usually a matter of clips on the inside that snap the 2 halves of the camera together. I don't own this camera so I would suggest using a small flat head screwdriver and gently prying around trying to find the clips.
