Re: Screws missing on F707 body

Another possibility would be to take it to an electronics parts store. Since one can find screwdrivers to fit the camera's very small screws there, I would feel confident they'd also carry the appropriate size screws.

Re: Screws missing on F707 body

Without looking at the back of my 707, I would say your best bet would be a watch repairer. Your local jeweler does not repair watches but sends them out: find out where they send them. Usually located in some jewelry center.

I am trying to replace the spring that pops up the flash unit. I've removed 8 screws from around the camera but something is still preventing to body from coming apart. I have tried gently pulling the...


Wow, you are a brave person to be attempting to dismantle a camera like this without the knowledge of camera repair AND expect it to work when you put it back together. My honest suggestion is to take all those screws and the camera to a competent camera repair person and have them fix it. This most probably isn't the answer you were looking for and you may be upset but if you want the thing to work again have a service person do the job.

How to remove Canon A570is broken battery door


I had the same problem and found nothing online to fix it so based on what little I could find and some common sense I got it done fairly easily. Here's what I did...if you need more detail on any step either re-read it to see if you missed something or let me know 'cause maybe I missed something.

Standard warning - you are dealing with small screws, small parts and things that might break. If you damage your camera trying this repair - please don't blame me! <G>

1) remove batteries and memory card
2) carefully remove screws around the outside.
There are: 3 on the bottom, 1 under the plastic usb cover on the left side, 3 on the right side. Once those are out, remove the clip that holds the wrist strap and you'll find 1 more on the top of the camera under the wrist strap clip.
3) starting at the bottom of the camera, gently separate the back cover from the camera body. YOU DON'T NEED TO TOTALLY REMOVE THE COVER!
4) (note the small spring on the battery hatch - when you complete the next step that spring will come out so look at where it is, which way it is and don't lose it!) While holding the cover and camera body apart slightly, use a pair of fine needlenose pliers or possibly tweezers & slide the pin that holds the hatch in place toward the back of the camera until the spring and door come off. You don't need to totally remove the pin.
5) take your new door assembly and put it in place. the fun part is the little spring - the shorter end of it has to go through a small hole at the back of the hinge area, the longer end puts pressure against the hatch. Once the spring is in place, hold it there and slide the pin back into place (I found that just allowing the cover and body to come back together moved it into place).
6) try the hatch to make sure it opens/closes freely and latches
7) put the screws back in place - note that one of them is shorter than all the others - that one goes on the top of the camera under the wrist strap clip

Hope this helps!

Please note - this is the only digital I've taken apart so I'm not likely to be able to help with other makes and models but feel free to ask!

Canon A560 command dial skips auto scene mode


I had the same problem with my A560.If you are handy you can repair it yourself.Remove the seven screws from the camera.Note the hidden longer screw behind the battery door.gently remove the front cover first then the rear.note the place where the screw was behind the door has a slight overlap and will need to be pulled away to clear the corner (watch for the lens o-ring seal).The selector wheel has become misaligned between the contacts.unplug the ribbon for the wheel on camera end.(use a pin in the hole of the ribbon to push it back in later).Unclip it from the housing nearest the top.note alignment of contacts on the pad.I had to bend my contacts very slightly towards the outside on one and in on the other and its works a1 again.The rubber cover for usb plug is easiest to install on the camera body first then put that end back in the housing first.make sure it is properly seated before putting the screws back in.Best of Luck and Happy New Years!

Olympus C60 Zoom I have lost the small housing screws and the camera body is opening, where can I get some?


You should go to a local hardware store and take your camera. Keep checking screws until you find the right size.

There is a spot on the top left hand side of the LCD monitor, and this spot also appears on the prints


Hi,
Looks like dust must have gotten onto the CCD sensor (or, more specifically, onto IR-cut filter on the sensor). The dust enters the lens through the gaps between zoom barrels and sometimes ends up on the sensor-which is what most probably happened here.
There are 2 ways I know to remove the dust. 1st way-it might sound silly, but try sucking the dust from the camera with your mouth around the closed lens :) Make sure you don't blow any air in. This worked for me a few times. Note that sometimes it might make the problem worse as you might move other dust particles onto the sensor.
If 1st way didn't help then you can try directly blowing the dust off the sensor. This should only be attempted if you're happy with partial dismantling your camera and are ok taking the risk of ruining the camera further. Although in my opinion lumix cameras are generally fairly easy to repair, you will need steady hands and patience to attempt this. If you are happy to proceed, do the following:
1. unscrew the screws holding the back of the case
2. lift the case carefully a bit making sure you don't break the ribbon cables going to LCD and backlight
3. undo the LCD and backlight ribbons (there are black flaps on the connectors, these gently flip upwards)
4. gently remove upped logic board. Try to pry it in stages from all sides, don't just pry it up in one go from one side or you might damage the connector. (I learned the hard way ;)
5. on the bottom logic board you'll see 2 connectors, undo the upper one to release the ribbon going to the sensor (note that this is not absolutely necessary if you're happy cleaning the sensor without disconnecting it-it can be done, the ribbon is relatively robust.)
6. the sensor is held by 3 tiny star screws. if you don't have the exact screwdriver you should be able to use a small flat screwdriver to carefully unscrew them. Do the screws bit by bit, i.e. unscrew 1st one a bit, then unscrew 2nd one a bit, and so on
7. there is a small spring underneath the sensor assembly, make sure you don't lose it :)
8. once the screws are undone you have access to the sensor-lift it up. Under good light you should be able to see the dust bits. Use a blower to get rid of them.
9. that should be it. put the camera back together. figers crossed it will power up and the dust problem will be gone :)
NB. You might have come accross horror stories of people being electrocuted by flash capacitors when repairing cameras. This might indeed happen. It's not easy with FX8 though: To get electrocuted here you would need to undo the top plate, unscrew the switch logic board and remove protective tape off the flash circuit, then touch the capacitor contacts :) Don't do it of course. Not worth it.
Good luck,
Raf

My Sanyo Screen is broken


After some work I think I have an idea how to repair a broken lcd screen on your Sanyo 6MP Xacti Digital Camera. Perhaps this will also work on other cameras.

1. Unscrew the 6 screws around the camera. Facing the lens you will find 2 screws on right side, 3 screws in the bottom and 1 screw on left side - there is also 1 screw under left side panel that you can unscrew after carefaully lifting of the panel.

2. Remove front panel.

3. Look at attached photo and unscrew the 2 screws that hold the back cover (it took me some time to find them I can tell). Perhaps you need to remove some screws that holds the curcuit board.

4. Remove the wiring shown on the photo that holds the lcd screen.


5. Remove the back panel and unscrew the 3 screws that holds the small lcd screen small curcuit board.

For the moment I don't know there to buy a new lcd screen but I guess it will be possible to find at a repair shop on Internet. For other marks I have found lcd screens for about $60.

Good luck!

Replace Battery Cover


to get to the battery door you must remove the back, to remove the back you must remove the top of the grip (shutter button and dial and WT lever). remove top of grip... 1) starting at the bottom of the plastic strip (along the front edge of the grip) that holds the shutter button, slide upward, the strip will bow outward and after about 3/16", the bottom's free. the only other thing holding it in place is a bit of double-stick tape and a similar clip at the top. CAREFUL! there's a spring under the button that's easy to lose. 2) Inside the battery case, front battery, all the way at the top, there's a tiny phillips screw, pull it. 3) peel away the right side rubber grip right by where your thumb meets the W on the W/T lever. 1st hole you'll see is a springy clip, keep going around to the right til you find a screw. pull that. 4) back to the springy clip hole, pushing inward on the finger, the top will come off straight up. leave it hanging, you just need it out of the way so the back can come loose. remove the back... 5) bottom of camera, remove 2 screws nearest the CE label and one outboard of the rearmost battery. 6) viewfinder cap: 4 screws, skinny on top, fatter on the bottom. the cap pops off. 7) lcd cover/frame: pull away from viewfinder(top) edge about 1/4 inch. the bottom's held by fingers; they need to slide to the left 1/8", then that's off. 8) remove screw @ lowerleft of lcd. now the whole back will slide rearward. 1st thing loose is memory door, remove it. slide the back off, out of the way. you'll now see that the battery door is held on by two hinge pins, not one continuous. the rearmost pin will slide left into the memory cover area, and the door will flex enough to remove it toward the front. trickiest part of reassembly is the spring under the shutter button. balance the spring on the camera, put the button into place. hold it in place with the screwdriver through eye of plastic strip, leaves plenty of room to seat the strip. lose a screw? I did, and the least-needed one is the one pulled at #3.
