Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ20 Digital Camera

Connectors position on main PCB

Hello, I had to remove the rear cover of the camera to fix up a screw of the lens holder that was moving free inside the case !!! Unfortunately, I didn't notice the position of the 2 tiny grey 2-wire connectors of the speaker and LCD (those with red-black and grey-white wires). Can somebody tell me the position of those connectors. Thanks to all.

Solution for nikon "lens Cover Error"


Nikon Coolpix S5/S6 “LENS COVER ERROR”
 
In this document I have given a solution to fix the problem most of the Nikon coolpix S5/S6 cameras face. At power –on it give an error “Lens Cover Error”
 
Before opening the camera I would suggest you to take a snap of each and every step. Because it will helpful while you are fixing the screws back. There are many screws which has to be opened. So better take a photo of each and every step.
 
IMP NOTE: Remove the battery before opening the camera. Use some antistatic strip to prevent the components from getting damaged Or Keep your feet touched to the floor such that your body remains grounded.
 
Follow the below steps in the given order:
 
Step 1> Remove the screws at the bottom of camera
4e12f9d.jpg

Step 2>Remove the side screws
df869da.jpg

Step 3> Remove the side screws as given below .
3822da5.jpg

Step 4>Lift the cover and remove the cables which connects the switches to the camera. These cables are fitted in a small connector. There is a tiny lock (present for few connectors)  on the connector, which on pulling it across its hinges, will open and the cable comes out easily. You need not pull it forcefully.

Step 5> Remove the screw as shown below

Step 6> Lift the screen as shown below.

Step 7> Remove the cables and screws as shown below.
5d9e791.jpg

Step 8> Lift the screen panel as given below.

Step 9>
Remove cables as shown below.

Step 10>
Remove the cables as given below.

Step 11> Remove cables.

Step 12> Remove cables

Step 13> Remove the 4 wires using a soldering iron.

Step 14>
14df535.jpg

Step 15> Removing at this stage is a bit difficult. You will have to open it cleverly. Lift it from the side as shown below.

Step 16>
c526f37.jpg

Step 17>Below figure shows the lens cover and the stepper motor which controls the lens civer.
b1dbf70.jpg

Step 18> To remove the stepper motor remove the screws as given below.
8809d48.jpg

Step 19> Below figure shows the stepper motor used for lens cover
91b5685.jpg

Step 20> Below figure shows the stepper motor which is used to control the lens cover. There is a small white switch on this motor. This Switch is used by the camera to detect whether the camera lens cover has is open or closed. When we switch on the camera the lens cover (which is shown in step 17) opens and in turn it presses the white switch show below. If the lens cover is unable to press this switch, then the error “Lens cover Error” flashes on the camera.
I would suggest 3 different ways to solve this problem.
1>     Fix some glue on the white switch shown in the below figure, such that it remains pressed forever. Because of this, camera will never give the error message. Remove the lens cover (which is shown in step 17) forever. You don’t  need it anymore. Now fix the below stepper motor back in the camera and follow the steps in the reverse order to fix the camera components.
2>     Buy a new stepper motor from the market. Its quite cheap. Fix it back in the camera. Here you need not remove the lens cover. Follow the steps in the reverse order to fix the camera.
3>     In this method you can open the stepper motor to fix the problem. Now follow the steps given below.
99cd6b4.jpg


Step 21>
Remove the screws as shown below.
71066aa.jpg

Step 22> Remove the gears one-by-one. See the placements because you have place them again in the right order.
1bea487.jpg

Step 23>
ef8bb9c.jpg

Step 24> The gear shown below is the culprit. Remove it. There is a tension spring present inside this gear. Do remember the position of this gear before removing this gear. Its placement is very important.
921f969.jpg

Step 25> The spring is shown below.
c6e7841.jpg

Step 26> Now the switch shown in step 20 does not get pressed because of reduced tension of the spring. Increase the tension of this spring by pulling it in opposite direction. Place the spring back in the gear and follow the steps in the reverse order to solve the problem. Now because of increased tension of the spring, the lens cover will be able to Press the switch shown in fig 20.

Remove the rear upper cover and the reader rear cover. Remove the three screws, and detach the cover, Remove the two screws and disconnect the two connectors then, remove the HDD unit. Remove the six screws and detach the HDD When mounting the HDD unit,be sure that the flat cable is under the plastic sheet of the HDD upper case.

Solution 1# :
It can be a Sector Problem ,to resolve it just press 1&9 keys at the same time the machine started the HD Diagonose and it repared the sector error without replacing the HDD .

Solution 2# :
try to go in to disc check service mode to clear the sectors ,this should work if it doesnt you will need to replace the hard drive .

Solution 3# :
Try HD clear & then HD check for every sector in service mode. Then try to upgrade system software;If nothing works change hard disk ,format & install system software. Posted by Kuyung at 5:50 AM icon18_edit_allbkg.gif Labels: error code 602-0003 IR5000, error code 602-0003 IR6000

Zebra Z4M, how do you remove the main logic board? Looking for instructions


Open the side cover, locate the hinge screws at the top inside the cover. 4 remove the side cover and the others remove the other side cover remove the all it is easier that way, check the back to see if there are 2 more screws in the cover. Lift the cover upwards to expose the Main Logic Board, from here you should be able to work out how to remove the Main Board. There are 2 black holders on the main PCB don't open the as they can obtain the Flash RAM, they are very sensitive and if you touch them they can blow.

I have a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30, with a fixed lens. The lens is scratched, and it does show up in pictures as light cloudy spots. Can I do anything to repair/replace the lens? If I miraculously found...


The lens needs replaced (usually very expensive). You want to try it yourself? First, Google the words...disassemble a digital camera. Then decide if you want to tackle the problem.

Lens dropped and now it is tilted inside and won't focus


I had a camera with the very same problem and decided to take it apart. After all what was there to loose.

It sounds like you have more to do than I did. after undoing many screws I was able to take out the zoom lens housing. I was able to disconnect the motor from the main body. I also removed the CCD board.

I then removed the rear cover which housed most of the mechanics for the focusing and shutter operation. This was quite tricky as it is a very tight fit, and had to be wiggled out very carefully.

When I looked inside the main body I could see several metal pins which were wedged between the outer shell and the lens holder... a bit of force was required to seperate these. Unfortunatley the holders for the metal pins were broken, and there seemed to be nothing I could do. But I decided to try and super glue them in place. A bit of trial and error and i managed to get them all back into place. This bit is really tricky as there are several tracks for these little rods to fit into and not getting them right will make the lens not function.

Your model may be different but I suspect you will find that the metal rods which move the lens back and forth are loose and that the holders for same are broken. If you have a lot of time and patience you can get it working as I did mine.

Feel free to contact me if you need more info. (I knew I should have take some photos whilst I was doing it.

Regards
Thomas

The carriage of the embroidery unit is not move automatically to the embroidering standby position.


Is the need in upright position ?

or have you fitted the embroidery hoop correctly.
If all else fails switch off and start up again - should then automatically go to correct position.

Neff u1271 oven not heating


Found the fault. It's the heat ring in the main oven. MAKE SURE THE MAINS POWER IS OFF PRIOR TO COMMENCING THIS WORK!!!!! 1.Simply remove the four screws that fix the fan surround in the main oven. 2.Remove the rear cover fixing screws and remove the rear cover. ( the cable passes through this so just rest it to one side ). 3.Remove the two push on spade connectors from the heater element ( positioned just down and to the right of the fan assembly ). 4.Remove the four heater element fixing screws from inside the main oven. 5. The tricky bit. . . There is one more fixing at the top of the fan in the main oven. I could not get the fan off its spindle, but the next step sorted this out. 6.Remove the three fan fixings from the rear of the oven. This allows the fan to wobble/move enough in the oven to remove the final heater fixing screw at the top of the fan. 7.Pull the heater element into the main oven. No doubt it has a very grey and flakey appearance to part of it! 8.Buy a new one and replace it in reverse order, remembering to replace all fixing screws as you go. 9. If you forget which way the cables on the heater element go, the one with the red marks on it goes to the left as you look at the back of the oven from the outside. ( nearest the fan assembly ) I know this all looks a bit long winded, but it really is quite simple if you follow the notes above! Hope this helps someone. Might just save a ridiculous call out charge from the professionals!!!! Best of luck, Keith.
