Casio Exilim EX-S500 Diaphragm Problem

\015 Hello. \302\240I was taking pictures today with my camera, which is about 2 years old and after about 4 normal shots, the pictures started coming out way overexposed. \302\240I've noticed that the diaphragm in the objective does not react to the dark or a bright light. It remains completely open. \302\240I've tried to reset the camera by removing the battery, but that had no effect. \302\240Anyone has any suggestions before I take this puppy apart? \302\240If so, they will be greatly appreciated.\015

All casio lens are pretty easy to replace if you get a as is camera from ebay with a broke LCD than your set disconnect the two ribbon cables and pry back the snap clips and out comes the lens connect the ribbon cables first and snap the replacement lens in. Test the camera befour putting it back togeather if it works good wala you just fixed your camera. Also make sure that you put the right screws in the right holes because to long of a ***** in the wrong hole and pow you just blew the main board and watch out for that flash compasitor it can bite you hard. lol Take it from some one who knows.
Well, on mine the problem was inside the lens assembly. There is a ribbon wire that runs along the inside wall of the lens housing (that powers the diaphragm motor) and, as the lens is retractable and there is a zoom mechanism, it forms a loop, so it can extend and retract along with the housing. In my camera, this wire formed a crack right in the middle of that loop. The crack does not extend along the whole width yet, so in certain zoom positions there actually is an intermediate contact, so that the diaphragm actually works if you use the intermediate zoom, but does not work in max or min zoom positions.
As for fixing it, the only thing you can pretty much do is to replace the whole lens assembly. That wire is a branch of a bigger one that powers other motors in the lens, so you can't really remove it easily, and besides, no one carries it by itself. The new lens assembly is $380 from the parts supplier. So I just bought a broken camera off ebay for 9 bucks, with a functional lens. When it comes in, I'll just replace it. The replacement part is actually pretty straight forward. The lens assembly is held by 3 snap tabs, so just disconnect the wires for the CCD and the motors and remove the assembly.
