Lens protector stuck open


A stuck lens cover is a fairly common problem, but it is normally easy to fix. A single grain of sand jamming the cover mechanism is normally the culprit, and you want to try to dislodge it. There are many non-invasive techniques that people have come up with to accomplish this. Some may be seen on this blog article. You can also open the lens barrel up to fix the covers, but only as a very last resort. This article provides further information on correcting this problem.

How to replace the lenses for oakley spike


I did the following... step by step, if you have any questions, please ask. - I placed the sunglasses perpendicular to me. One if the lenses will be close to you, while the other should be farther away.
-I grabbed the farthest lens from your body with both hands. Placing your left had on the left side and your right and on the right side. One had is on the bottom of the lens, while the other is on the top of the lens. It does not matter which hand is on the bottom or top.
-I grabbed the top and bottom of the frame, pulling away from the lens. At the same time I pushed with my fingers (that should be on the inside of the lenses) and pressed the lens out (on the lens closest to the nose pieces). You will hear a very faint "pop" when the lens clears the frame.
-Then slide the lens out by grabbing the part that is out of the frame that is close to the nose piece
-To put the new ones in, position the sunglasses the same way and put the replacement lens in the sunglasses, starting with the edge near the ear pieces.
-Pull the top and bottom of the frame out and push the replacement lens into place.
If you have any questions, please ask. If I can clarify anywhere, let me know.
Good luck.
And once you do this,could you please leave me feedback and vote on my answer?
Thank you very much,
Lori

Broken lens cover **RESUBMITTED to Corrected Camera Type**


It's not really a problem if the lens cover isnt there. The following actually shows how to repair a broken lens cover. But have a feeling yours may be damaged beyond repair, so the next option is removal of the shutters. Be careful that you don't get any of the rubbing alcohol that's spoken of in the following procedures on the lens itself.

Lens cap stuck


I was messing around with this today, ended up where it seemed in was working.

Power up, let lens out, then take out batteries. Pry off silver band patiently using fingernails. Then pry off overlying black plastic piece. There are four units underneath, pay attention to how these are put on, mine popped off, but it wasn't too hard to figure out how to put back together. There are pins and holes and kind of fits like a jigsaw. Once off clean with alcohol where you can.

Put batteries back in and open and close a few times. This will help understand movement where pins of lens cover pieces go. When putting these back on make sure camera is in off position.

The lens cover pieces need to be put on so that the pin portion has some resistance. Move one so that it drops in then push up to get other in place. Let them come together and hold these in place.

The two smaller pieces will close the cover. Put the hole of the closer piece over the pin. Then move slightly so you can retract spring with a small instrument and subsequently engages pin on closer. Place top black piece back on, then silver.

This worked for me, hope it does you also! Good luck.

Door will not open


I had a similar problem, I went back in and opened it up, took the top plate that covers the lens, opened the tray, put the plate back on, then closed the tray and it works again. With the tray closed, I think I put the top plate on the bottom piece and it was stuck on.

Lens cover stuck open


I recently had the lens cover stick partly open.  There are 4 segments to the lens cover, and if we number them from the top, number 2 was not closing.
I gently flicked the segments a few times, in case there was a grain of dirt causing it to stick (although the camera has never been in a dirty or dusty environment).  This caused the lens cover to close fully each time, but now it would not open fully, segment 1 would not open, although it would stay open if moved by finger.
Anyway, after a bit of fiddling, I got it working properly again.  The way that the lens cover appears to work is that only segments 2 and 3 are pushed open or shut by springs, segments 1 and 4 are pushed open and shut by tiny tabs that catch on segments 2 and 3.  If the segments somehow get pushed out of alignment, then they either bind (causing the cover not to shut), or they get disconnected (causing the cover not to open fully.
Now I am not sure exactly what I did to get the mechanism form the stuck open state to the not opening state, but from there the way to fix it is to:
-With the lens open...
- Hold segment 2 in the closed position with firm finger pressure (which will tend to push it towards the lens).
- Push segment 1 towards the open position until you can see that it has cleared the edge of segment 2.
- Lift segment 2 way from the lens so that it will rub past segment 1 as you...
- Move segment 1 to the open position.
- Repeat if necessary to get the technique right.

I can't provide any guarantees, and I am not about to repeat the excercise on my camera, but it was a lot easier than sending it off for repair.

Not turning on


Hello Ariel, You need a new battery lid. The problem is the lid has a pin that when closed properly, allows the battery to power up the camera. You can get one for $30.00 on Ebay item number 7623965577 if you act fast. This is a good camera and would be worth $30.00 (plus 5.50 shipping) to fix it. Please let me know how it works. Best regards, nightdiver
