Based on the fundamentals of retaining rings, The filter lens probably fits into the ring housing first, and the retainer ring is inserted inside of the ring, following the lens. The retainer will need to be compressed in order to fit inside the ring, but will snap into a groove once in proper position.
I hope this is helpful... Good luck.
We dropped our Samsung s730 (twice!) and got the lens jammed slightly sideways. I read a blog somewhere about this and just did what she said- If it is stuck out and obviously jammed sideways, push on the lens the way it should sit. I had to press really hard, but it snapped back into place and now works fine!
This WILL NOT work if: The lens retracts normally and goes back out normally, or it is not OBVIOUSLY stuck slightly askew. Sadly, with cameras this low in price about the only option is to replace it as repairs would cost more than a replacement.
In the future I plan on getting a squaretrade.com damage warranty on ALL my small 'droppable' electronics, it is pretty inexpensive (usually the same price as 'store brand' extended warranties that only cover defects).
this occured to me whilst using my Sony P200, took it appart and found the lens motor had basically jumped its gears and jammed, the only solution was to replace the lense section (as motor & gears were built in) as no other part was damaged but to do that it would be at least £70 and the camera had dropped value to £160 and i could get a better camera for that amount...so my advice get a new one. and sell the remains on eBay.
How far apart are you? I mean it all goes back together in reverse order. If the lens is disassembled, you need to get the outer lens tube back on its tracks in the inner tube. That takes a little working, but it should be doable. You should be able to turn the small gear that is on the lens assembly and be able to extend the zoom lens, itll be tough, but if you cant, then the camera will probably not be able to do it either, look for something off track.
It was the last day of elementary school and i wanted to get a pic of everyone together and then i dropped my camera and it went to the white kodak screen and said lens error:126,1,0,-11 and then it would trun off i couldn't believe it i was so upset. But then i looked at my lens and noticed it was crooked, i just snapped it into place and voila it worked. I was so relieved!
I have successfully fixed the same error on a Nikon 2100 by dissasembling the camera and removing grit from the gears that drive the lens. However, if the camera has been dropped, I suspect that something has got dented or bent. It may be worth taking the camera apart to see if a gear has got dislodged.
I would warn you to be very careful not to get a shock off the flash capacitor inside the camera though. Also, it took me quite a while to put it all back together. It's not the easiest device to work on, a result of the very compact body (for its time!)
