I'd say Panasonic could repair it for you. I would guess that the cost would probably approach the cost of the camera itself. However, call/email them to find out for sure.

If you are very handy, you might be able to replace the lens assembly yourself. Look for a dead camera on ebay, same model number. Make sure the camera lens assembly is good though.

use toothpaste rub a small amount on the scratched lens depending on how deep the scratch is rub the toothpaste over the scratch until the scratch is repaired.
Glass lenses are delicate and can be easily scratched.
These scratches mar vision beyond the lens, and can sometimes obstruct vision completely.
Prevention is the best method to keep glasses clear, but accidents can occur.
Luckily, there are several ways to quickly and inexpensively remove scratches from glass lenses.
These methods include using toothpaste, baking soda, windshield fluid and vehicle wax.
Apply a small amount of toothpaste on a soft, cotton cloth.
Rub the toothpaste onto the lens using small, circular motions.
Continue wiping for about 10 seconds and rinse with cold water.
For deep scratches, the method may need to be repeated.
Mix two parts baking soda with one part water to form a thick paste.
Use the cotton cloth to apply the paste to the lens, rubbing in a circular motion.
Rinse afterward and dry with a separate cloth.
Once again, this step may need to be repeated for stalwart scratches.
Apply a small amount of windshield fluid to a soft cloth, and polish the glass lens for several seconds.
This is more useful for light scratches, and is usually not effective against deep, prominent blemishes.
Use a clean cloth to buff vehicle wax onto the glass lens, once again moving in a circular motion, and continuing until the scratches have been removed.
Use several cloths, as the wax can adhere to the fabric, marring its performance.
Purchase an eyeglass polishing kit from a local optometrist.
These kits usually contain a polishing fluid and a soft cloth.
They are ideal for removing scratches from small glass lenses on glasses, cameras, telescopes and more.
They can be purchased for $10 to $20 and include easy-to-understand directions.

I have a scratched lens. Can a new lens be bought?


Hello, I have several of these cameras myself and really like them,but the problem is the cost to repair would exceed the cost of a newer camera that you could purchase on E-Bay. Check it out and you can get a nice used camera.Hope this helps.

My lens is scratched and the picture focuses on it and wont focus out so I have to fix the lens- any advice on how to fix my problem? Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG10


There's nothing you can do except to have the lens replaced. Trying to rub out a scratch would only result in the lens having a different focal point and would no longer work with the other lens elements in the assembly. This will probably cost more than the camera is worth.

Love my TY7005, but they have scratched lens. Can the scratches be removed or do the lens need to be replaced? Cost? Who does the repair? Is it successful?


unfortunately scratches cannot be removed. Therefore it's very important if you put your glasses for example on the table, to take care not to put them there on the glass. Always transport them inside an etui. Every good optician can replace them, the cost are dependent on the quality of the glass. But if you don't need optical glass they should be quite moderate.

Hello dear

the scratches on your glasses can be removed by using nail polish remover or thinner.
Put small amount of thinner on tissue paper and clean your glasses. Scratches will remove.

W810i acrylic camera lens cover is scratched. Any advice for polishing or replacement part?


I dont think a polishing can help much but try with any watch dealer to take a chance.
the ideal is to get the camera replaced but take an estimate to see if the cost is reasonbale to you.

Trying to repair a scratch on the front of a lens is impossible without changing the focus of the lens. You will never be happy with the results.

Lens Error!


Hi I use to be a camera technican for samsung repairing small camera's like yours.It is a very common fault 90% unfortunatley of lens errors are the users fault not the cameras. The lens error means the lens is jammed, usually by a slight knock while the lens is out or a bit if debri like sand getting into the lens's moving parts. If it is still under manufacturers warranty send it in for repair. If the camera is clean and looked after with no scratches, dints or abrasions on the lens or camera body you will have a chance to get it fixed under warranty for free. If it is scratched and dinted and the purchase value of the camera is around $250 it may cost you around that to get it fixed. Good luck

dont know about replacement but someone I know had a bottle of CD scratch remover and tried it one day, it worked wonders. They also confirmed that McGuiers plastic polish does an amazing job. Take your time, apply multiple times, and use a lint free sunglass wipe to apply and buff with.
