Hello, Not quite sure what part you are referring to unless you mean the CCD assembly that looks something like a fish eye. There is no easy fix for a camera lens problem. It requires special tools and service procedures not available to the consumer.If a lens is even handled wrong it will result to serious problems which will add higher costs to the repair.You will find the repairs cost more than a replacement camera.
Best Regards, Russell

Can I just replace the third brake light bulb only ..just the bulb.on a 2005 Chevy Malibu LS.or do I have to replace the hole brake light itself..


from inside the trunk looking up at the light First, gently work the gray, carpet like cover loose from the area around the tail light ,(this may give you a little trouble). Once you have done this, you will see three silver nuts. These must be unscrewed. The lower left nut must be accessed through a hole next to where the trunk lid fits. (The screws are permanently attached to the lens housing so will not drop into obscurity when the nuts are removed). After removing the nuts, GENTLY work the lens housing away from the car. You may need a screw driver to unseat the housing, but just be gentle.

You will find three bulbs inside the lens. The brake light bulb is on the lower right side. Simply pull the old bulb out and insert the new one.

Just reverse these directions to reassemble the housing.

The lens of the viewfinder Canon HG10 was pushed inside. I removed the small outer lens through the opening. How can I open the viewfinder tube in order to push the lens back in place?


hi,
i am not a user of this cam, but generally you have to open the camera shield to be able to separate the two parts of view finder, because or there are also screws in the inside of the hinge (pivot point) or the hinge itself does maintain the two parts...
cheers

How do i remove the outer assembly spool on a troy built gas trimmer tb575ss


If you are talking about the side where the clutch is, there is a Torx screw inside the hollow part of the clutch housing. Using a #20 Torx bit, loosen screw. If this is the first time on this screw it will be tight and the drive shaft will turn with it. You will have to remove top of cylinder head and put something soft inside the cylinder to stop piston from moving up and down; usually a towel and something stiff like a screwdriver to hold it from moving.
After clutch housing is removed, the clutch itself is threaded and by holding the shaft with pliers you can unscrew the clutch.
Past this, just screws holding the plastic housing.

I am trying to open the outer casing of the vacuum


There is a push in type flat plastic switch trim cover over the metal housing surrounding the switch.. You must unplug the cord, gently pry around the trim cover and you will find a screw, an irregular one underneath holding the switch in place. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN when reinstalling this one or you will crack the switch.

Once removed the rear housing will come off. Then you will see several new philips round head screws holding the front housing onto the vac.With all screws removed the housing should open easily but there may be dirty film inside holding the halves together. The fan shaft will unscrew revealing the fan, a spacer behind and perhaps two different spacer washers. Install the new fan hand tight, washers and spacers in same order...
Good effort figuring this one out. Please post back with results.

The lens cover won't close or open all the way.


Got It! You might try just soaking the camera for a little while like one response said. But I just removed the front face plate. There was accumulated gunk holding the lens cover, and I had the exact same symptoms you're describing. Gently wiped it all clean and presto! all good. You are not opening the camera, just removing the front face. There are three small allen screws on the front and a small phillips screw on the edge.You will need a very small (1.5mm) metric allen wrench (found in common allen wrench sets), and a very small screwdriver for a little screw on the side (found in common micro screwdriver sets). Keep track of which hole each allen set screw came from, they are all different, in fact one appears to be just decoration and has no threads, I just secured it with a tiny dab of all purpose adhesive (Ace hardware brand). Check the tab near the lens goes back in place. Dr. John Christensen

Check the back of the light housing, alot of the lights that have replaceable bulbs have a twist and lock release on the back. The whole bulb housing and wires will twist and come out

I have dust under outer lens on my 75-300mm f/4 -5.6 III USM


Front element? You can remove this without alignment worries. The lens zoom mechanism tends to **** in the dust.

Have a look at the front element outer ring. There are 3 black screws. Remove these using jewellers screwdriver (y'know, a very small posi-drive one!). Remove this plastic outer ring. Now you can see three small silver screws, that are about the same size - when you try to unscrew them, they just rotate...

This is as they are not screws, but as mentioned elsewhere - they are plugs (if you notice, they are slightly under the casing. Get a small flat bladed screwdriver, and gently prise them out. Now you can just drop the front element into something sensible - like a microfibre cloth (give it a clean whilst you're there.

Get a rocket blower (NOT canned air), and blow away the dust, and you can use the microfibre cloth (or similar) on the small inner front element.

Then replace the outer front element - you will see where it drops into place - there are plastic guide tabs. Push back the silver 'screw' plugs.

Then screw back on the plastic outer ring and you're done - takes 20 minutes at the most.

How do you change the faceplate on the nextel i95?


BASIC disassembly of your phone(i60/i90/i95)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This ONLY covers unscrewing the housing and splitting it open? that ALL. You'll need a T-8 torx driver for this.

Step 1: Turn you phone off, turn it over, take off your battery cover, take out your battery, and take out your SIM card. Be careful with your SIM card. Unscrew your antenna, remove it, and take out the metal antenna tube.

Step 2: Get your T-8 torx. Unscrew the THREE torx screws in the battery compartment. They are located in the bottom two corners and in the top left corner of the battery compartment.

Step 3: Peel back the right hand side of your ?Nextel? sticker just above the battery compartment. Peel it back ONLY A LITLE, until you expose the fourth torx screw. Use your T-8 torx to unscrew it.

Step 4: Carefully separate the two halves of the housing. BE CAREFUL, and keep in mind that at the top of the phone (near the flip hinge) there are cables still attached (the flip ribbon cable and the headphone jack). You will not be able to separate the two halves of the phone body all the way and will want to make sure to keep the top part of the housing relatively close together. If you screw up and damage the cables up there? don't try to blame us? we warned you.

Step 5: Do whatever it is you wanted to do that required you to split apart the housing in the first place (e.g. replace a keypad, PTT buttons, etc.), put the two halves of you phones body back together (carefully aligned) and screw the torx screws back in.

Step 6: Put your antenna, SIM, and battery back in, and you're done. Enjoy!

**Now let's talk about the flip. This ONLY covers the removal of the front and inside lenses of the flip. If you want to remove your flip completely, or remove the LCD of the i90. SEARCH the forum for info on how to do that. You'll need a T-6 torx, a SMALL flat-head screw driver, a hobby knife, and a blow-dryer for this.

Step 1: _This is optional, but is ideal for those nervous people out there who don?t want to take any chances. Remove your antenna and battery but put your battery cover back on.

Step 2: FIRST, open the flip. With the phone facing you (as if looking at your screen), look into the gap between the flip hinge and the phone body in the very center of the flip's hinge. You're going to see a small slot in there. Remember that slot? it's important.

Step 3: Close the flip and turn on your blow-dryer. Keeping the dryer about 4 inches from the surface of the front lens (the blue thing on the i95 or the silver thing on the i90) heat up the lens surface. Keep your blow-dryer moving around? DON'T concentrate it in one spot, you'll end up melting something. All you want to do is soften the glue a little. You don't need to use the dryer for too long to accomplish this. A minute or LESS should be fine, use your GOOD judgment.

Step 4: Once you have heated up the front lens enough to soften the glue underneath, quickly open the flip and use your small screw driver and poke it through that slot we talked about in step 2. You are pushing on the back-side of the front lens when you do this. BE GENTLE! You should be pushing the top of the front lens away from the top of the flip. Manipulate the phone in your hands as necessary so that you can hold the top of the front lens away from the phone. Remove your screw driver and close your flip (careful not to let the part you pushed away slip from your grip.)

Step 5: GENTLY pull the front lens away from the flip a little bit and use your hobby knife to cut away at the glue. BE CAREFUL not to knick or cut ANYTHING EXCEPT for the glue when you do this. In this process you will cut a little, and pull a little further away, cut a little, and pull a little further away. Continue this until you have completely removed the front lens. Once completely separated, make sure little to no contact is made with the glue on the back of the lens or the front of the flip. The more you touch it, and/or the more **** that falls onto it (dust or dirt or whatever) the less sticky it will be.

Step 6: Use your T-6 torx driver to unscrew the four torx screws on the front of the flip. These screw hold the inside flip lens down, so once they are out, be careful when you open your flip.

Step 7: Open your flip and gently remove the inside lens. BE CAREFUL. On the i95, the LCD is NOT glued to the inside of the flip. It is held in by the inside flip lens. You'll need to GENTLY remove it from the lens. If you're not careful.. you'll damage your ribbon cable and be screwed.

Step 8: Once your done doing whatever it is you wanted to do that required you to take your lenses off in the first place, just reverse the processes in step 7 and step 6 to attach your inside flip lens again. Then simply pres your front flip lens firmly back in place. If you were careful, the glue should be undamaged and would be PLENTY strong enough to hold your lens securely in place. Presto, you're all set! Enjoy!

Tasco OS36 Binoculars battery replacement


The screw you removed holds the battery cover in place. The cover is roughly rectangular with rounded corners. Once the screw is out, gently insert a sharp blade into the hairline crack between the cover and the binocular body and pry the cover off. The two watch batteries will be obvious.
