Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F707 Digital Camera
Hi The front cover on the camera (donut like shape that surrounds the lense, broke of as did the manual focus ring. Has anyone had this problem? Can they fix it? If I use super glue will the fumes damage the electronic circuits? ( as I was told by one store) Otherwise fixing it looks like it will mean getting a whole new lens. Martin
I had the exact same problem. The front ring fell off with the lens cap attached. Bummer!
I would not glue the two together. I fixed mine by removing the lens body side, and screwing the front ring back on as it should be.
I noticed that there are tiny screws that are pointing forward, towards the ring that had fallen off along with the lens cap. I carefully removing the side cover of the lens body (about 5 screws), unsrewing the (fake) hot-shoebracket, and the 2 screws underneath (where the lens body where the camera mounts to a tripod), then CAREFULLY removing the front end of the lens body assembly. There are ribbon cables attached to it, so slide them out carefully. you will then see the offending tiny screws either still in place, or rolling about in the piece. Match the ring up to the front aligning the sensors, then screw the two together. reassemble, and your back on track.
I would be willing post pictures of the procedure if someone needs to see how I managed.
