You can basically choose any of the watch glues from that website. The one I would recommend is either the "Super Glue New Glue" or the "GS Crystal Hypno Cement Watch Crystal Glue", they're both under $5 and they get the job done very well, especially when you're trying to glue a new watch lens to the plastic camera body of the flip.

How to Repair Ray-Ban Sunglasses. ?Replace a lost or missing screw in your...

How to Repair Ray-Ban Sunglasses.<br />&bull;Replace a lost or missing screw in your Ray-Ban sunglasses with a small piece of wire. Push the earpiece back into place on the sunglasses and gently wiggle a small piece of wire through the screw hole. Pull the wire through the opposite end and push it back through. Push the wire through at least three times and use your pliers to twist together the ends.<br />Fill a small bowl with warm water and set your sunglasses in it. This is a quick trick for fixing loose frames. The warm water heats up the frames, making it possible to reshape the glasses yourself. Remove the sunglasses after a few minutes and gently bend the frames.<br />Hold the Ray-Ban sunglasses in one hand to replace a lens that popped out. Turn the sunglasses over, so that the front faces down and place the lens onto the back. Gently press down with your other hand, until the lens pops back into place.<br />Use an eyeglass repair kit to replace any missing screws. The kits come with several small screws and a tiny screwdriver. Line up the screw to the proper hole and gently screw into place. If the screw won't go in, it means that your screw hole is stripped and you need to use the wire method.<br />Seal broken parts with instant glue. For broken frames, apply a thin layer of glue to one side and push the broken piece back into place. Hold until the glue dries. Instant glue also fixes lenses for wireless frames. Apply a layer of glue to the bottom of the top piece and push the lens in place.

A balonet tap is broken off the bajonet ring

Don't try to glue it on :-)

If it's only one tab, the other two should be able to hold the lens securely enough to allow you to continue using the lens. However, its risky and you should get it fixes as soon as you can.

Any qualified camera repair shop should be able to replace the lens mounting ring (that's the part with all three tabs). If you're confident you can do the replacement yourself (you'll need at least a screwdriver and a soldering iron, assuming the lens has any electronics in it), you may be able to order the part from
They don't have parts for all Nikon lenses.

My lens is cracked on my flip cam, how do i fix it?

They aren't too hard to open up and take apart. There's a glass piece the covers the actual lens and I'm guessing that is what broke. Once the flip is in pieces you can remove the glass piece and it will operate fine without it. If you want to replace it, you can either get a broken flip and use it for parts, but there's a pretty sticky, tough ring of tape holding that glass piece in place. You could also try a very clear piece of plexiglass and cut it to size. Haven't tried that one myself, but it may work.

My webcam is out of focus. How can I refocus it? Turning the wheel on the front doesn't work.

The wheel that holds the lens is broken - its thread is gone. Disassemble the camera - don't broke the wires from the data cable, start the pc and adjust the camera to be focused on the position you will use it normally, use a drop of glue to fix the lens in place and put it all back together.

My flip video has a broken lens. Where can I get this repaired?

If you've never received an answer to this, I have a Flip UltraHD that had the same problem. I took pictures all along the way of fixing it. Let me know if you'd like to see how to fix it! Not hard at all if you're GENTLE!

Shame on Flip for not making this simpler!

Tape works better than glue . The black tape . Super glue will work if you use an accurator with the glue .

When turn it on the lens will come out but the cover that is over the glass part of the lens wont open

This is a common problem to deal with in all these type of cameras. You can take the camera apart going slowly and you will need a small philips and straight screwdriver. It is easy to do but time consuming. Once you get the lens apart you can see the spring that holds onto the side and either super glue it if the plastic is broken or remove it all together. I would rather try to fix it. Let me know how it goes.
