Although it is annoying when you see a scratch, most scratches can't be seen on a picture. Unless it is very deep and in the centre. The only problem is, you easy can get a lens flare.
If you can live with the scratch, forget that it is there and only avoid light shining on the front lens from the side. My DX7590, still has a perfect lens, but I can't shoot, because my mode dial and joystick don't work any more. I still enjoy the pictures I took with that camera.

How can you remove scratches from eyeglass lens?


I'm afraid not. the light modern glasses, have a coating, trying to remove a scratch will remove the coating, and change the correct focus on that part of the lens. If the scratch is in the visible part, do you see a dull part, I'm afraid you have to buy a new glass. If it is not visible for you, try to live with it, till you need a new pair.

Scratched lens


Without the right skills and tools it is almost impossible to correct assemble a lens. I'm not sure you can switch over a complete lens assembly, but I do advice to look at ifixit dot com, to see if they did unassembled the S7000 already, Then you can make up yuur mind if you have enough skills (and tools) to do it yourself.
If you don't see anything on the pictures you make, about the scratch, you also cold continue using the camera as is. Most of the time you only see a flair on the picture is a bright light hits the scratch.

Damaged lens


With just a little luck, the scratch is not too big, and you won't even see it on most pictures. Don't try to remove the scratch, because the front of the lens has a coating you can remove very easily. That will do more damage to the pictures then a scratch. You could contact a Canon repair centre, and ask what it would cost to replace the lens. I think it could set you back more then a new camera will cost, but always worth trying. If you don't see a thing on the pictures, leave everything as it is right now.
Only clean a lens with a lens pen, you can buy in every camera shop. In a camera shop you also can buy other cleaning suff special for lenses. Never use fluids that are not special for use on lenses, or you will also damage the lens.

I have a Kodak EasyShare Z650 digital camera. I have a tiny scratch on the outer lens. Can I replace the lens or can I fill the small scratch in and smooth it out like what is done on chips in car windows?


First check your warranty on the remote chance that might cover the damage. The only true fix for a scratch on a camera lens is replacement. For many point and shoot cameras that would cost more than the camera, IF you can even find someone to replace it. There are several do it your self options that work sometimes and to varying degrees. The first and most well known way is the alcohol method. First place some lens cleaner on a microfiber cloth and wipe the lens well, then using a clean portion of the cloth, dry the lens well. Next mix a solution of 1 part rubbing alcohol and 20 parts water (e.g. 20 teaspoons of water to 1 teaspoon of alcohol.) Using a fresh microfiber cloth, dip it into the alcohol mix, then gently rub the length of the scratch repeatedly and you may see the scratch disappearing. If so continue until the scratch is gone. Next take a clean microfiber cloth or if you don't have one, a clean portion of the one you used previously with the alcohol and gently buff the lens. The second method I am aware of is using one of the many lens scratch repair kits available online, but be sure to read the reviews to choose wisely before you purchase one.

Scratch on Gold Contact


You can replace the contacts, but a light scratch would not cause a lens communication error. Using your fingernail, push all the contact pins in the mirror box in and out 5-6 times to break any corrossion between the pins and their ciruit board

How can I repair a scratched lens?


Hi There,

Repairing a scratched is the hardest lens repair to accomplish successfully. It may be worth a shot to check with the manufacturer if ther is some kind of warranty or replacement program. The best option is to replace it. However the cost of replacing the lens may cost more than what the camera is worth. With that in mind, here are a few DIY options things you can try that may or may not work.

1. Scratch Repair Kit
Stuff Needed: Digital camera lens cleaning solution, microfiber cloth and a Scratch Repair kit.
Many companies sell scratch repair kits so there are several available on the market. Do your research to ensure it can work on, and is safe for your lens. Test it on an old camera if you have one lying around just to make the results are what you're looking for.
a. Clean the lens with the lens cleaning solution, and dry it off completely.
b. Follow the instructions provided with the kit.

2. Rubbing Alcohol
Stuff Needed: Digital camera lens cleaning solution, 3 microfiber cloths and a 3.5% solution of rubbing alcohol.
a. Clean the lens with the lens cleaning solution, and dry it off completely.
b. Dilute the rubbing alcohol by mixing 20 parts water to 1 part rubbing alcohol to get it to a 3.5% solution.
c. Take a brand new microfiber cloth, dip it in the diluted rubbing alcohol solution, and rub into the scratch using a very gentle motion.
d. You will know if this is working if you start seeing the scratch disappear.
e. Once the scratch has completely disappeared, take another brand new microfiber cloth and dry and buff the entire digital camera lens.

3. Vaseline Method
Stuff Needed: Digital camera lens cleaning solution, 2 microfiber cloths and Vaseline.
a. Clean the lens with the lens cleaning solution, and dry it off completely.
b. Dab some Vaseline on your finger and fill the entire scratch with it.
c. Using a new microfiber cloth wipe the Vaseline off very gently. Pressing too hard may cause the Vaseline to sink inside of the scratch.
d. You will know if this is working if you start seeing the scratch disappear.
e. As the Vaseline eventually rubs off, you may need to reapply some more and continue until the scratch disappears completely.

4.Pencil Eraser Method
Stuff Needed: Digital camera lens cleaning solution, 2 microfiber cloths and a new, soft pencil eraser.
a. Clean the lens with the lens cleaning solution,and dry it off completely.
b. Lighlty slide and rub the eraser unp and down along the length of teh scratch.
c. You will know if this is working if you start seeing the scratch disappear.
e. Continue rubbing the eraser until the scratch disappears completely.

NOTE: Never apply the lens cleaning solution directly to the lens itself. Alway dab a microfibre cloth with the solution then clean the lens and allow to dry.

Hope one of these works for you.

I HAVE A SCRATCH ON MY LENS, 35MM PLEASE HELP I WOULD LIKE TO BUY A REPAIR KIT.


There isn't one. Polishing out a scratch would alter the shape of the lens and ruin the image quality. Anything which fills the scratch will also alter the optical properties.

Just live with it, even fairly bad scratches are rarely visible in the images taken with a scratched lens although they sometimes catch the light at certain angles. using a lens hood will prevent that.

Can a scratched camera lens be repaired?


No, only replaced. Trying to rub out the scratch will only change the focal length of the lens. How did you scratch it?

Lens has been scrached


Unless you have an acrylic lens you will not be able to buff out the scratch.
I recommend getting the lens replaced with a sapphire scratch resistant crystal. This will be a little more expensive but well worth it as far as maintaining the aesthetic beauty of your time piece.

For a great repair house you can see the box titled top watch repair on this page or look in your local directory.
