Sorry, but if the butter is inside the lens, you can't get at it and still get the lens properly aligned again.

We spilled melted butter into the base that holds the kernals. Now we get black smoke when we plug it in. I tried running it on empty for awhile, but the smoke continues. Can we remove the top and clean...


you can open it but not from the top. unscrew the bottom and take out the heater and clean out the Popper without using any water or soap just a toothbrush and cloth. it will take more then one clean out to get it to stop smoking (took me 3 times). put it back together place a plate under it to catch butter and run it for 10 min. to get hidden butter to melt and seep out of hidden spaces then repeat cleaning.

Lens problem


Hi, if the camera shows a "Lens Error" there is probably dust inside the lens mechanism. You can try to clean it by using compressed air or bellows. Sometimes shaking the camera also helps. I had this problem myself with my Nikon Coolpix and it worked again after I cleaned it.

My panasonic dmc-fz30 has dust inside the lens, is this possibly a job i could fix myself


How can you tell it's dust inside the lens? Does it show up in the pictures? And no, you can't take the lens apart to clean it because you don't have the precision equipment necessary to remount the lens elements within the close tolerances necessary.

Hi

Its hard to say without seeing the camera myself, but it's either dust inside the lens or it could be a small amount of condensation that has dried up and left a small amount of dirt behind.

What you will need to do (or have somebody do) is open up the camera, tear apart the lens and see if there is any dirt on the CCD. You can also look inside the lens from the front and see if you see any dirt trapped inside.

If you see dirt trapped inside the lens.... The only solution I know of is to replace the lens. If it's on the CCD (behind the lens) it's easy to clean off. Just make sure you don't leave fingerprints on the CCD when you're cleaning it.

If you need somebody to do it for you, we are a digital camera repair business (Google Darntoothysam) and would be happy to help. I think we have a CCD cleaning listed for about $35 including return shipping of the camera, but please note as I said above if its inside the lens elements and not on the CCD we can't clean it off.

Hopefully this advice helps, and if you need to ask further questions please feel free to contact me.

Good luck from Darntoothysam com

I dropped my EOS Digital camera and 300 MM Zoom lense in the river. The camera has dried and seem to be workin gfine, but the zoom lense needs to be cleaned.


Dear catnip54,
You could obviously clean the front and back elements on the lens(use a microfiber lens cleaning cloth), but there is no way of cleaning the inside of a SLR zoom lens other than having an authorized service technician take it apart and clean each lens element seperately(which could be expensive). I would count myself very lucky that your camera body still works after being immersed in water.

Sincerely,
Agent Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Unless you have extensive experience, this is best left to professionals. If you didn't spend much, then you could "learn" on it, but if it is something you really value...don't do it.
