The repair is not expensive, should be around $200 or less, provided that you did not damage the internal glasses and mechanics and sensors. You will need a receipt to repair it at Nikon USA, or goto an authorized repair center to get quote.

The 2 pieces that cover the lense came off,


This blog post outlines repair procedures for stuck automatic lens covers, and gives several examples on disassembly and reassembly. However, if you find that you are missing some pieces, you probably have already noticed that the camera works just fine without the lens cover. In that case, maybe consider leaving the shutters removed, and simply installing the outer lens ring to improve the camera's appearance. And pay a little extra care in protecting the lens, possibly by storing and carrying the camera in a camera case.

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.

That's the Nikon error message for a lens with aperture ring set to something other than the minimum (i.e. highest number).
The camera insists on controlling the aperture ring, and to do so, the ring must be set to the minimum setting.
Unless it is a "G" lens, which has no aperture ring whatsoever.
The camera body sets the aperture of the lens wide open while auto-focusing, and displaying through the viewfinder. When it comes time to flip the mirror up and take a picture, the camera dials the aperture to the setting you (or the camera) have selected.

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.

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:

http://www.esslinger.com/roundmineralglasscrystalx1mmthick.aspx

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.

Nikon d90 lens plastic mount broke


I feel for you. exactly the same happened to me but i was looking to upgrade lens so i used it as an excuse.the piece is called a bayonet. what lens is it, is it the kit lens. my lens was unfixable so  am afraid as the mount is plastic the whole lens is a right off, if it was a metal mount it would be worth fixing. sorry

Canon EOS 400D kit lens problem...


It would be very difficult and not recommended to take appart a lens unless you can easily spot set screws around the area that you want to remove. One thing I would try is to lightly push on the broken off edges back and forth to set them up straight in as much a circular orientation as possible. Sometimes when a piece of any ring breaks off the remaining edges are facing inward or upward depending on direction of impact that caused it, and that way they rub against the encapsulating material as the ring turns.

Broken locking ring on Quantaray 28-90mm. 1:3.5-5.6


Hey Quiltzlady,
If you were an authorized service technician you could probably order this part from the manufacturer, and if this camera is really only $90 to purchase new it is very likely the cost of the repair would not be worth doing. The suggestion to super glue the ring back together might work but I would try epoxy being that it is a lot stronger, but remember you run the risk of rendering the lens inoperable when you involve glue with something that relies on moving parts to operate properly. Another suggestion is to find the same lens, but broken, for sale that this ring is not broken on, and use that lens as a parts lens I hope this helps.

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.
