    Three of the Four front screws mysteriously fell out and it is being held on by one measley screw it's only a matter of time befor that one disapears too.

    I only have 1 screw left holding the faceplate on!

    I have the same problem with the same camera AGAIN. Last time, I ordered four replacement tiny screws at a total cost of $15 from Kodak. Obviously this is an engineering flaw on Kodak's part and they are gouging us for these tiny little screws.

Flash repair


My Olympus SP-570uz also has a broken flash spring. I found that small a coil spring approximately 3/16" max diameter and approximately 7/8" to 1" long can be inserted in the flash cavity when it is open - place on the right side (looking at the front of the camera) in the area that does not interfere with the small latch that locks the flash in the down position. The coil spring will need to compress enough to allow the flash to close completely.

Tip

How to replace a defective LCD screen in a Kodak V803 Digital Camera


This tip is for Kodak V803 cameras that will take pictures fine but you can only be able to see them if you download them onto a PC.

A replacement screen can be easily ordered and replaced. Call Eastman Kodak. Their parts department can be reached at (800) 431-7278 ext 3. Tell them the model number of your camera and tell them you want to order a LCD screen for it. The cost of the new screen is $31.00 + $15.00 shipping. Don't let them talk you into sending it back for repair. You are looking at a repair bill over $80.00.

To replace the screen, remove all of the small philips head screws that are in the chrome band that runs around the center ridge of the camera. After removing the screws, you will be able to separate the rear half of the camera from the front half. The LCD screen is pressed into a rubber gasket in the rear half of the camera. You will see that there is a small, flat orange ribbon cable that connects the old LCD screen to a black connector on the camera's motherboard. Using a VERY small flat blade screw driver, pry up the top tab on black connector. This will unlock the connector and allow you to remove the flat ribbon cable from the black connector.

Remember the orientation of the old screen and its cable as you will want to replaced the new screen and cable exactly the way the original was installed. Using the same small flat blade screw driver, pry out the old display. Install the new display into the rubber gasket into the back half of the camera. Insert the ribbon cable into the mother board's black connector and press down on the panel to lock the cable into place.

Lay the rear half of the camera face down on the table (rear buttons facing down) and place the front half of the camera over top of the rear half. This will allow you to put the camera back together and help prevent the new LCD screen from falling back out. The LCD screen has pads attached to the surface behind it. When you reinstall the front half of the camera, those pads help hold the LCD screen in place with pressure from the motherboard.

Replace all of the screws. If you did it correctly, the camera will operate like new. Last word of advice. Buy a padded hard shell case for this camera. These cameras are well known for LCD screen failures due to shocks and drops.

Replacement screws


FYI I just called Canon (1-800-828-4040) about the screws.
They are sending 2 screws out to me free of charge "as a one time courtesy."
Perhaps they got lots of complaints.
Thanks for your help

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

How do I disassemble my Sony DSC-S700. I've removed the five screws, now what? I'm trying to replace the screen.


Pry the left side plate off, it says "3X Optical Zoom" on it. Get under it's edge with a very small screwdriver. There is a screw under it. Remove it. On the right side, where the wrist strap attaches, pry off the side plate. There are two screws under it. Remove them. The front and back should come off now.

Lens error 12 appears on screen, lens wont retract and camera turns itself off. How do I fix this


It is very easy to fix. Just Be Very Careful when doing the following Repair.

You will need the Following a Size 0 Screw Driver, and a Small Eye Glass Flat Head Screw driver.

1. remove the 4 Screws holding the side panels. (Make sure you do not mix these screws with the ones on step 2) as these screws are shorter.
2. Remove the 6 Screws on the bottom of the camera
3. Now carefully pull apart from the bottom up. You will see 2 more screws on the left side but do not remove them.
4. Seperate the Front faceplate carefully around the Lens assembly.
5. while keeping the Camera with the lens Facing Strate Up, remove the Two Screws on the right side of the Lens, but keep caution not to move the camera while the screws are out of place.
6. remove the Cover to the Lens Gears.
7. Now this is very important!!!!, Take the Small Eyeglass Flat head Screw Driver and Pry the Gear To the Left, not the one by the motor. you do not have to take the gear off, however just enough to allow you to Move the Lens Assembly manualy.
8. Turn the Lower half of the Lens assembly carefully until the Lens is compleatly In and lens protector flaps Shut.
9. Put the Gear back on.
10. put the Gear Cover back on and Screw the Two screws back in. Make sure they are Firmly tightened
11. Put the Front Face Plate back on by putting on the top first, then closeing the bottom.
12. make sure the side pannel with the Wrist Strap is in Correctly before screwing it in.
13. Place the Side Pannels back on and Screw them in.
14. Screw the 6 Bottom Screws back in.

Now put the Battery Back in and test it out. This should fix the error you were having. i just perfomed this on my camera 15 min before i Wrote these instructions it worked! Step 15 get back to taking great shots!

Open a Canon 570 IS


Just keep pulling on the back plate with the lcd towards you. The shiny thing will eventually pop off. It doesn't feel right while you're doing it. It feels as if you will break it. But I just kept taking the back off and it just popped off the shiny thing.

Removing the back to replace the LCD screen


On top of the shoe is a thin piece of metal. Using a small screwdriver this can be gently levered up at the front edge and slid out. Then access to the 4 screws is possible.

Hot shoe loose


Canon typically hides the screws under the metal plate on the shoe itself. You have to free it at the front and slide it back to get access to the screws holding the shoe
