Disassemble, clean and reassemble Nikkor 85mm f1.4 AIS


Don't even think of disassembling it yourself!!!!!! Take it to a professional camera repair man and save yourself allot of money. I guarantee you that if you disassemble it yourself, you will not be able to reassemble it and the repair man will charge you much more then if you just brought him the lens in the first place.

Why do you think that the lens needs to be internally cleaned in the first place? It is very rare for so much dirt to penetrate the lens's interior that it actually affects the quality of the photographs. Don't over react to a few specks of dust between elements. The most important element to keep clean is the exterior surface of the rear element because that is where the light is most concentrated. Let a camera repair man tell you if your lens really needs such a drastic approach.

How can I repair a scratched lens?


Hi There,

Repairing a scratched is the hardest lens repair to accomplish successfully. It may be worth a shot to check with the manufacturer if ther is some kind of warranty or replacement program. The best option is to replace it. However the cost of replacing the lens may cost more than what the camera is worth. With that in mind, here are a few DIY options things you can try that may or may not work.

1. Scratch Repair Kit
Stuff Needed: Digital camera lens cleaning solution, microfiber cloth and a Scratch Repair kit.
Many companies sell scratch repair kits so there are several available on the market. Do your research to ensure it can work on, and is safe for your lens. Test it on an old camera if you have one lying around just to make the results are what you're looking for.
a. Clean the lens with the lens cleaning solution, and dry it off completely.
b. Follow the instructions provided with the kit.

2. Rubbing Alcohol
Stuff Needed: Digital camera lens cleaning solution, 3 microfiber cloths and a 3.5% solution of rubbing alcohol.
a. Clean the lens with the lens cleaning solution, and dry it off completely.
b. Dilute the rubbing alcohol by mixing 20 parts water to 1 part rubbing alcohol to get it to a 3.5% solution.
c. Take a brand new microfiber cloth, dip it in the diluted rubbing alcohol solution, and rub into the scratch using a very gentle motion.
d. You will know if this is working if you start seeing the scratch disappear.
e. Once the scratch has completely disappeared, take another brand new microfiber cloth and dry and buff the entire digital camera lens.

3. Vaseline Method
Stuff Needed: Digital camera lens cleaning solution, 2 microfiber cloths and Vaseline.
a. Clean the lens with the lens cleaning solution, and dry it off completely.
b. Dab some Vaseline on your finger and fill the entire scratch with it.
c. Using a new microfiber cloth wipe the Vaseline off very gently. Pressing too hard may cause the Vaseline to sink inside of the scratch.
d. You will know if this is working if you start seeing the scratch disappear.
e. As the Vaseline eventually rubs off, you may need to reapply some more and continue until the scratch disappears completely.

4.Pencil Eraser Method
Stuff Needed: Digital camera lens cleaning solution, 2 microfiber cloths and a new, soft pencil eraser.
a. Clean the lens with the lens cleaning solution,and dry it off completely.
b. Lighlty slide and rub the eraser unp and down along the length of teh scratch.
c. You will know if this is working if you start seeing the scratch disappear.
e. Continue rubbing the eraser until the scratch disappears completely.

NOTE: Never apply the lens cleaning solution directly to the lens itself. Alway dab a microfibre cloth with the solution then clean the lens and allow to dry.

Hope one of these works for you.

Trying to access inside of lens to clean dried condensation spots


Good luck with that. I hope you have some money set aside for a new camera. The lens is not consumer-repairable.

I've had this camera for a while. but one time i just dropped it on a blanket while the lens was out and than the lens stayed open and out. but it turned off. i turned it back on and it said lens error...


The following web blog talks about lens error problems, and what you can try to get the camera working again:
http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html
Sometimes, when a lens gets bumped or dropped and hit, the gears inside the assemby can jam, strip, or break. The blog discusses what you can try to get the camera working again, but if nothing works, the camera will have to be serviced. You can take it in to a local camera repair shop, or contact Kodac support:
http://support.en.kodak.com/
Get an estimate before having it repaired, since the cost of repair can often justify buying a new one.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Bought june 2009 in june. rebel eso also with that package a cannon lens 75 to 300 used it 3 times on the camera code say err 01 clean contacts did that same old problem i also have a 3 year plan...


I'm not 100% sure of what you are saying. I gather you have a 3-year extended warranty? Error 01 is usually associated with failure of the IS system in the lens so it would most likely need to be sent to Canon for repair. I have only had one Canon service issue (nine years since my first EOS) and they provided an RMA for UPS return to them. I suggest you contact CanonUSA repair and request an RMA.

Stuck Lens


If you have recently dropped the camera you may have damaged the lens tube (housing). This damage will prevent the lens from moving properly and will cause the camera to shut itself off after a few seconds. If the lens is damaged the camera will require professional repair. If the lens is not damaged, the problem may be battery related. Make sure that you have the correct battery type installed, and that the batteries are fresh/fully charged. If the problem persists, you may have corrosion on the battery contacts inside that camera that is preventing full battery power from flowing to the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the inside camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sand paper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and reinstall them in the camera. This cleaning solves the problem about 90% of the time, and I hope it works for you.

Error 11 at nikon camera


First, if you can try the lens on another camera body, please do. See if the same thing happens on a different camera body. If it does, it's a problem with the lens. If not, you need to look at the camera. You can verify it's the camera by placing a different lens onto the body and see if you're experiencing the same problem. If it is indeed the body, I would suggest you take a pencil eraser and gently but firmly clean the contacts located on the lens mount. It's my experience (I also shoot with a D200) that often times when a lens isn't autofocusing, it's due to direty contacts either on the lens itself or the camera body. Cleaning them is a good start though and will narrow your issues down to the lens or the camera body. After cleaning, try the lens again to see if it's working correctly. If not, send it to Nikon in New York for repairs.

Nikon AF 35-135 lens-used for both analog and digital cameras


There's no easy DIY fix for this unless you can clearly see what's broken and how to fix it. But the shock of the fall has either dislodged the internal gears or bent/broken one or more internal pins.

The lens will need professional repair; if at the same time it's given a full CLA service (Clean, Lubricate, Adjust) then it will be money well spent as it's still far cheaper than a new replacement lens.

Lens error


This lens is in need of repair, though contrary to what some of the people on this site will say, paying $150 for a lens repair is completely unnecessary.
Usually a problem like what you are having is just a realignment and cleaning of the lens and gears. This in itself is a relatively cheap repair ($50-$75) Sometimes however, the plastic housing covering the lens itself gets damaged, or the lens twists inside the housing, which many times can require purchasing a new lens (this will run $150 or so).
