Question about Cameras
Fixya is a global website, and has service experts from all over the world. For example I am inn UK.
Regarding the camera, the repair will probably be above $150 (AUD), since the technician will need to take apart and reassemble the lens, and some part may need replacement.
If you want to replace your Ricoh, bear in mind that the R5 model is not on the market anymore.
The nearest model on the market is the newer Ricoh Caplio R7 that has an higher definition from about $280.
A better choice will be buying a Ricoh Caplio R8, that has 10Mpixel and more advanced features.
You can grab an R8 here for only $215, RRP is about $400!!
Much better than repairing the R5 for about the same amount.

You should be able to place the lens element into the body of the lens and screw it into place. Most have a "cap" that have small, percision screws that you can simply screw back into the lens. The exterior cover should screw in as well. Beyond doing this, if the repair is more serious, you should take it to a qualified technician to ensure that all of the elements are aligned correctly and in good working order. I know this isn't what you want to hear, but lenses are high percision items, and if it goes much beyond placing the first element in and screwing the cap over it, I'd take it to a tech. Let me know if you have any additional questions.
