Question about Cell Phones

I need a replacement for the camera lens for an iPhone. This is NOT the camera. It's the plastic lens which is taped to the inside of the back cover of the iPhone. Do you sell this small part?

    If I'm understanding the only comment I received correctly, it sounds to me as though I'm being told that one can not purchase just the camera lens (sometimes called the "camera lens cover") for the iPhone camera. Throught much searching, I have found this is not true. The part can be purchased from the following URL:


    I purchased one of these and found it to be the exact replacement which I needed. It does not come with the small silver bezel around it, but that can be acquired by simply removing it from the previous lens.

    I hope this information helps others who are in need of this.

Best way to Convert TiVo/MTS/MXF/MKV/AVI to iPhone 4 on Mac After Apple unveiled...

Best way to Convert TiVo/MTS/MXF/MKV/AVI to iPhone 4 on Mac
After Apple unveiled its new fourth-generation iPhone, to be called the iPhone 4, people are getting crazy about it. Sure, it looks exactly like we expected it to, with a glass front and back, but it's what's on the inside that counts.
Now we have confirmation of the final design as well several of the 100 new features and specifications.
What's new
-Front-facing video chat camera
-Improved regular back-camera (the lens is quite noticeably larger than the iPhone 3GS)
-Camera flash
-Micro-SIM instead of standard SIM (like the iPad)
-Improved display. It's unclear if it's the 960x640 display thrown around before—it certainly looks like it, with the "Connect to iTunes" screen displaying much higher resolution than on a 3GS.
-What looks to be a secondary mic for noise cancellation, at the top, next to the headphone jack
-Split buttons for volume
-Power, mute, and volume buttons are all metallic

Camera shutter wont open iphone 3g

If the camera shutter won't open in the Camera app, it could be a hardware or software issue.
Turning the iPhone off then back on should resolve the issue. If not, a Restore in iTunes would help.
If neither of these help, it could be the camera's connection inside of the iPhone. You could set up a Genius Bar appointment at your local Apple Store.

I started camera iPhone but Lens is not open

Try backing up your phone first in computer. On the main screen on itunes where you make the changes and updates to your iphone click the "Restore back to factory settings". This will erase everything from your phone fixing any software problems the camera might be having. When the phone starts to sync it will ask do you want to restore from previous back ups or as a new iphone, choose as a new iphone so the previous bugs wont be installed. If that is not successful it would probably be a hardware problem so you could call the Apple Support number which you can find on the Apple support page and the problem should be covered under warranty if it is under a year old.

Problem with iphone the camera shows ablack screen

Clean any debris from lens with soft cloth.
Try and download a free "camera" app from app store.
If app doesnt display camera correctly, restore your iPhone, if still not working your hardware may be damaged.

Broke camera on lg dare

YES! You will have to find another back for the phone or order one through a repair shop. If you are tricky you may try prying the clear lens cover from the inside of the back and replacing it with an equally thick piece of butyrate or lexan sheet found in RC model shops or something around the house, perhaps an old cell phone ((plexiglass scratches easily). Do NOT use superglue as it will cloud the plastic. Michaels has some white craft glue that dries clear or you can buy some RC-56 at the hobby store which is designed for this purpose (clear canopies, windows, and windshields). I am pasting this link from Howard's Forums to help you with disassembly. It has photos and everything:

My LG VX8300 phone has a cracked camera lens cover. I would like to replace it myself if LG can provide the parts. Can you help with instructions? Thanks!

I repaired mine by using a knife to pick out the old one. Then I opened the back by removing the 4 screws and prying it apart. I cut a piece of clear plastic the size of the lens from a flash memory box, removed the black ring around the hole on the inside and pressed the new lens in, replacing it. I used a little glue to hold it in and put the black washer on top of it. Then I closed up the phone. It works great. With the new lens inside, it won't get broken again.
