I need the piece that the camera screws into.

What camera, where is the piece you are talking about? Also, a camera does not screw into things, however it will screw onto things. Before anyone can assist you, do provide more detailed info.

The rubber eyepiece on the EVF came off and we can't get it back on. Can you help?

I just fixed the same problem on my Z712 IS. I used an eye-glass repair kit because it has the correct size screwdriver to remove and replace the camera screws. I did not know which screws to remove so I just removed every screw I could find. Be aware there are two screws under the side panel that says "7.1 mega pixels". I was able to replace the rubber piece and put the camera back together. It turned out to be easier to fix than I thought it would be. Good luck.

A white piece fell out from the spot next to the memory chip of my Nikon coolpix P4 camera, now the camera will not turn on, can you tell me what this piece is for and if my camera can be fixed, thanks

if you feel technically inclined you can open the camera carefully and take it apart to the point where you can remove the upper circuit board ( NOTE 1: make a careful note of every screw you remove since they are different size and need to be used exactly in the same order) and then the small black plastic assembly above the circuit board below, you can see the defective switch on top of the 2nd board, remove the plastic part of the switch until you see the bare 2 contacts on the circuit board, solder a small piece of wire to bridge the contacts, now very carefully reassemble the camera observing the exact order of screws used, see NOTE 1. If everything is back in order insert the battery and the camera should work now.
note: should you not be inclined to do this work and want to sell the camera as is for spare parts I am interested, drop me a note at: cocnutray at A Nikon repair shop will charge between $80 to $110 FOR THIS TYPE OF REPAIR, THEY WILL ACTUALLY REPLACE THE DEFECTIVE MICRO-SWITCH. HOPE THIS HELPS :-)

Nikon d90 lens plastic mount broke

I feel for you. exactly the same happened to me but i was looking to upgrade lens so i used it as an excuse.the piece is called a bayonet. what lens is it, is it the kit lens. my lens was unfixable so  am afraid as the mount is plastic the whole lens is a right off, if it was a metal mount it would be worth fixing. sorry

My canon powershot a640's flash isnt flashing.

I can't believe I just managed to fix exactly this problem on my camera.  Warning - the process hurt somewhat, but it did work.
I dismantled the case very carefully:  After taking the shiny grey cover on the screen end off (3 screws, noting carefully where each screw was), I took the top cover off.  
That was a case of unscrewing three screws at the bottom of the battery compartment (I left them in place, as it looked tricky to locate them again, subsequently working with the camera upside down), then gently prising the top off - there is an internal clip just next to the visual viewfinder, which you have to wiggle a bit - just use a fingernail to prise it open.  The top lifts off - dangling on with its cable.
Here is the unpleasant bit.  Quite accidentally, I shorted the flash capacitor, by touching its circuit board - and got the most surprising electric shock.  
I looked around to see if there was anything else I would be able to do, felt there wasn't, so I put it all back together, in the hopes that it might have fixed my problem.
Hey presto, I now have a working camera with working flash!

Kodak EasyShare Z612 Digital Eye piece

you have to take off the back plastic part of the camera carefully. I snapped it off carefully. Then you take off 2 black screws at the eye piece and insert the rubber. screw back together. snap plastic back on and screw in all the screws. have fun!

This fix should only be done by a professional or one who is familiar with repairing electronic devices. I have fixed many Kodak camera's with exactly the same problem.


Inside the camera the lens is attached to the circuit board with a ribbon cable and it inserts into a connector that it's latch can pop open if the camera is dropped or Jared. The way to fix it is to remove the back and re snap the connector. I have fixed many this way. There are two hidden screws behind the eye piece. Press down on the eye piece after removing the screws on the bottom. Be very careful where you touch on the circuit board. In the upper right corner is where the high voltage is for the flash. That can cause a nasty shock if you touch it. Even if the battery is removed it holds a charge.

Panasonic lumix lens go crazy...

Read my latest comment, it might be a fluke, but it's worth a try to unscrew it because it's not worth sending it back, and the only other thing you could do is sell it on ebay or craiglist for parts. Good Luck! MINE WORKS :)
