You can't take the lens apart. Even if you could, you don't have the tools or expertise to get it back together and properly align the lens elements.

Hi I have opened up the vhr/ DVD player to clean a pinkish orange residue out of the DVD part. Now the DVD player won't work what can I do


It is possible that you might have got whatever you were cleaning off, or whatever you cleaned it off with on the DVD player lens. Or perhaps some dust went on the lens when you went inside the unit. Alternatively you accidently pulled out a connection, or caused some other form of damage, possibly to wires and the connections (bad soldering joints) when disassembling and reassembling the unit.
Try cleaning the lens, then check inside for problems.

The faceplate display on my JVC stereo has a lot of dust inside it. Can I disassemble the faceplate and clean the inside? Everything works great, it is just more of an irritant!!


Yes, you can take the faceplate apart and use air pressure or a photo lens brush to remove the dust. You probably won't get all of it off as the dust is attracted to that area due to the static build up. You can try using an antistatic spray on the lens to try to dampen down the issue longer.

Tamron AF 18-200MM XR Di II LD dust inside; how do I clean?


Dust and other small debris is drawn into the lens due to the vacuum created when zooming in. You can reduce the chances of drawing in dust and debris by slowly zooming in as opposed to rapidly zooming in.

Now that you how it gets in and how to help prevent it from getting in again, comes the bad news. There's really no way to disassemble the lens to clean it up at home. These are precision optics with many small moving parts that really need to be serviced in a dust free environment. You best bet it to contact Tamron (or authorized servicer) to learn how much it will cost to be cleaned by them. This will keep the warranty (if any) intact, too.

Good luck!

There is dust inside the lens. how do I clean the dust from inside the lens?


Your projector needs little maintenance. The only thing you need to do on a regular basis is

to keep the lens clean.

Never remove any parts of the projector except the lamp. Contact your dealer if other parts

need replacing.


Cleaning the lens

Clean the lens whenever you notice dirt or dust on the surface.

• Use a canister of compressed air to remove dust.

• If there is dirt or smears, use lens-cleaning paper or moisten a soft cloth with lens cleaner

and gently wipe the lens surface.

Never rub the lens with abrasive materials.

See dust or drop of water on my pic canon sx10 is


You have to disassembly your camera for it, including the lens assembly.

Even if you have experience and skills in fixing electronic devices, I don't recommend it, since any particle of dust will get inside the lens and your camera, and will affect it.

The recommended place to perfom such cleaning activity is a Clean room (class 3 or higher), and have handy the proper cleaning tools.

Disassembling the lens is tricky and also needs a lot of patience and technique skills to do it properly.

Imagine that by accident a spring pops up a tiny metal ball (1.5 mm diameter) and you lose it in your home, then because of it, your lens will not work properly.

If it has warranty, I do recommend you to send it to cleainig to a professional repair and cleaning service.

If still you have questions or doubts, or need a cheaper quote for it (after get some quotes from local repair centers for comparison), you can contact the ebay seller Great_items_2004

Dust inside the canon ef 24 85mm lens


CAUTION! DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT DISASSEMBLING YOUR LENS. In 1964, I made the mistake of doing the same thing for a single focal-length lens for my Nikon F. This lens did not even approach the mechanical complexity of a modern zoom lens. Lenses are put together like jigsaw puzzles. I removed one screw and found to go further, I needed to do another. In fifteen minutes, the lens was in 50 pieces on the table. It cost over $175 to have a camera repair man reassemble it. This was a a time when the top of the line Nikon sold for $300 vs. $5000 today. Usually dust between elements does not affect performance, but if it is degrading your pictures, take the lens to a professional. This is not a job for an amateur.

Cleaning the inside lens


To access the inner optics on these compact digital cameras the lens must be disassembled from the inside out. Usually the camera casing has to be removed, boards and connections moved out of the way, and the lens assembly actually removed from the camera. At that point the lens can be taken apart and the inner optics accessed. In other words, yes, this is a job for a professional. It is also probably not worth the cost just for a couple specs of dust. These lenses are not sealed. This is why the dust gets in there to start with. If you get a can of compressed air and carefully blow into the gaps between the lens parts in different directions somtimes you can get enough air through to blow off the inner lenses. This does not often work though. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
