Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F828 Digital Camera
The lens seems to be separating from the body. Is it easy to take apart and tighten?
One note on this fix. There are four screws that need to be tightened on the lens. With the cover off and the lens pointing straight forward, there are three small screws visible. After tightening them, rotate the lens upward to expose the fourth screww. After that one is tightened, you can then replace the cover and six cover screws.

How did you order the replacements screws?

I had the same problem very recently. If you are careful and have a screw driver the size of the phillips screws on the camera body you can fix the looseness. There are 6 screws that you need to remove to access three screws on the left side of the camera body that need to be tightened (your left as if viewing through the camera view finder). On the left side of the lens by the function button are 4 screws. A 5th is at the underside by the tripod hole, the 6th is at the rear of the lens just aft of the name "Cybershot". Unscrew all 6 short screws. Carefully pry off the left side cover that has the functions buttons (focus, nightshot, ect). You need to support the lens and cover as they are connected with a thin copper strip. Once off you tighten the 3 screws on the left side of the camera body. Reinstall the removed side and off you go. Lock tight on the screws would have been good as even my camera body screws get loose. I had to order replacements after looseing 3 of them. Cheers.
