DON'T! you can do more harm then good taking the phone apart.. specially the front lid.

The hinge has a ribbon cable that runs through the left side hinge .. If that's torn there's no fixing anything anymore. Your better off just seeing if Verizon wireless can replace it for a fee.

Cant get video out on my gopro after a crash on a hillside. It looks OK at the outside, only some scratches.

I had a cracked lens after dropping the camera, it still worked, just had a fuzzy spot from the cracked lens. I went to Quality Video Components/Rage Cameras and they replaced the lens. The literature on their web page lists other internal repairs they make to GoPro cameras. Maybe they can help you, GoPro doesn't do repairs. (wearable video)

But now these cameras are getting so abundant, it may be better to buy one than repair it. The lens was half of what a used camera costs on ebay. Or you can buy just the camera by itself new since you don't need the accessories.

Dropped my canon eos350d with 18-55m lens. where the lens attaches to the camera is broken ie the casing along the edge that connects to the camera, hence light is getting in and camera is not functioning...

I'm trying to read this correctly, is it the lens that is cracked or the camera/camera body mount?
If it is just the lens you may find it less expensive to purchase a new lens the 18-55mm is a kit lens and fairly inexpensive to purchase over repairing one. If it is the camera I'm not sure what to suggest and the repair would be very expensive to replace the chassis outer body.

My lens is cracked on my flip cam, how do i fix it?

They aren't too hard to open up and take apart. There's a glass piece the covers the actual lens and I'm guessing that is what broke. Once the flip is in pieces you can remove the glass piece and it will operate fine without it. If you want to replace it, you can either get a broken flip and use it for parts, but there's a pretty sticky, tough ring of tape holding that glass piece in place. You could also try a very clear piece of plexiglass and cut it to size. Haven't tried that one myself, but it may work.

Camera was over $200 + is it worth repairing

You need a reality check...driving over a camera is not recommended by the manufacturer...time to buy a new camera.

Have a canon digital elph sd750. Pictures are now blurry.

You could have cracked the lens, damage the focus or a number of other things but the lens and focus are most likely. check your lens for scratches if there is none and no cracks take it to your nearest camera store or buy new good luck!

The lens cracked. The camera still works but the picture shows cracks. Is it possible to repair it?

The same thing happened to mine. Customer support was useless, telling me I voided my (expired) warranty by breaking it, and that it is not a replaceable part.

Here's the fix that worked for me:

If you look closely at the metal bezel around the lens, you will see a seam between two metallic parts, near the front surface of the lens.Take a knife and gently work it around that seam until you separate the two pieces. They are held together with doublestick tape, so they come apart easily. That will expose the lens which is actually not a lens at all, it's a window; a flat glass disk. Take the tip of a pointy knife and gently pry the glass piece(s) off. Again, this is held on with double-stick tape so it will come off easily. If you can find a glass disc that is the same diameter and thickness, you can place that in. The disc is a 20mm diameter by 1mm thick. You can probably order a replacement watch crystal from somewhere like this place:

They cost less than a dollar (not including minimum orders, shipping, etc), and they are probably more scratch/crack resistant.

If you don't want to bother replacing it, your camera is still fixed, just a bit uglier and vulnerable to dust. The front lens has no optical significance, it's just a dust cover and/or a design element.

The metallic bit you took off is little more than a piece of tin foil.
Had they used a more substantial part that could divert shock instead of directly transferring it to the glass, there would be far fewer cracked lenses out there. But that would probably hurt their "go buy a new one" repair policy.

Cracked lcd panel on Nikon D50

If it still works there is not a real problem, cause the sensor is probably still okay:) you can go to canon store and try to replace the screen..

Cracked lcd

I have a Sony cybershot with a dead LCD. I also can't find a source for replacement and the cost of replacing it at Sony Service Center is a bit unreasonable and they don't sell parts. Luckily it has an optical viewfinder. In your case, maybe Olympus Service Center is the only way.
