REplacing the front glass lens

Hi,

We have cracked the front glass lens on our V6 (seems to be a very common problem from the posts i read on different sites). We have a new screen, but cannot get the old one off. Any suggestions?
thanx
Jody

    I already have a new screen, but the existing cracked one is proving difficult to remove. We understand the warranty implications but wish to go ahead ourselves.
    thanx

You would basicly need a service manual to figure it out without breaking anything.

    If its just the glass rather than screen itself then its literally a 2 minute job - peel old screen off then stick new one on

    all you have to do is take off is that front metal
    faceplate 4 screws under the rubber stoppers and pop it off gently with
    a plastic tool, then peel the old glass, being careful to keep it
    clean, snap the faceplate back on so you can align the new glass and
    stick the new glass in.

    this is what u asked for

    thank you

    don't forget to accept the solution if u go by it,

    good luck

    have a great day

    Not too difficult to get it off, but if you want your warrantee, go to a repair shop.

How to remove the front flasher bulb ?


gently remove the screws holding the lens in place
remove lens and gasket set aside
firmly grasp the glass of the bulb, push, and twist until it will not twist any more
it should pull right out
replace in the same manner you removed it but be very careful when replacing the gasket to not pinch it or have it misaligned because this will led to corrosion, and do not over tighten the screws for the lens, this will crack or break the lens.

The screen looks cracked and multi colored but the actual glass isnt broken or cracked


Your LCD/monitor is cracked from the inside. There are several things that can cause a screen to crack from the inside. The two most common are pressure on the screen or dropping the machine. Sorry, but it is irreparable. You need to buy a replacement.

The glass on my 18-200 lens was cracked on the very edge of the lens. I was wondering how expensive is it to replace the glass?


hi there...
so sorry to hear that your lens was cracked...
the reparation will costs you expensive enough, and i suggest you buy a new one
if the lens still working, you still can use it taking pictures, but the picture will need some correction using photoshop or any other graphic software

thanks

The lens cracked. The camera still works but the picture shows cracks. Is it possible to repair it?


The same thing happened to mine. Customer support was useless, telling me I voided my (expired) warranty by breaking it, and that it is not a replaceable part.

Here's the fix that worked for me:

If you look closely at the metal bezel around the lens, you will see a seam between two metallic parts, near the front surface of the lens.Take a knife and gently work it around that seam until you separate the two pieces. They are held together with doublestick tape, so they come apart easily. That will expose the lens which is actually not a lens at all, it's a window; a flat glass disk. Take the tip of a pointy knife and gently pry the glass piece(s) off. Again, this is held on with double-stick tape so it will come off easily. If you can find a glass disc that is the same diameter and thickness, you can place that in. The disc is a 20mm diameter by 1mm thick. You can probably order a replacement watch crystal from somewhere like this place:

http://www.esslinger.com/roundmineralglasscrystalx1mmthick.aspx

They cost less than a dollar (not including minimum orders, shipping, etc), and they are probably more scratch/crack resistant.

If you don't want to bother replacing it, your camera is still fixed, just a bit uglier and vulnerable to dust. The front lens has no optical significance, it's just a dust cover and/or a design element.

The metallic bit you took off is little more than a piece of tin foil.
Had they used a more substantial part that could divert shock instead of directly transferring it to the glass, there would be far fewer cracked lenses out there. But that would probably hurt their "go buy a new one" repair policy.

I have a fender g dec 30 amp. one day it just quit working


The most common cause of failure in these amps are solder breaks around the power supply capacitors and / or any of the front mounted potientiometers. If you can solder and can safely work around high voltage, get the amp chassis out of the cabinet, get some strong reading glasses or magnifying glass and start looking for cracks. Flow solder across the breaks or wire jumpers.
BE CAREFUL - HIGH VOLTAGE

Broken glass on the lens


Are you kidding? A camera lens are a group of various lenses inside. I don't think it's repairable, but I'd say take it to a local photography store and you can get free advice. I think I understood you, but anyone would have to see the damage in person. From here, I'd say you are in bad luck...it's a goner. Also cameras are not designed to take a big fall like that. There is probably more damage than just the lenses.

CRACKED


The Stress of impact on the imaging forming unit that is directly behind the projection lens has a flat glass surface. If it is cracked the stress cracks would project with any image because they are on the same plane as the image
