I have a nikkor-h 18cm f2.5 lens which is in great condition except that the focusing ring is stiff and takes more hand power than it should to rotate. I want to disassemble it so I can clean and re-lube the threads. So far I have removed the barrel with the tripod adapter and the threaded focusing barrel which rotates inside of it. I now need to remove the barrel that rotates the focusing barrel, the F stop barrel and presetting ring and don't know how it is done. Does anyone know how to

Hi, how is the best way to clean the lens of the Olympus C-740? I have a fingerprint on it. Is it really true that I have to buy lens cleaner or can I just use a microfiber cloth? Will cleaning it ruin any of the 'covering' on the lens, or is the lens glass? Can you let me know if I need to rub, not rub, or rub in circles, etc? There seems to be a lot of conflicting info on the net. Thanks!

Photo lens cleaner and a microfiber cloth used gently will work. A handier solution that you could carry with you is a product called "lenspen". If there's a photo store nearby, they would have it in stock. You could also find one at amazon.com ... Olympus Camedia C-740 Ultra Zoom Digital Camera

Not Focussing Hi ! I am Vineet from Indore,(M.P.) India I bought a new Olympus C-170 in 2004. Recently I'd been to Chennai and on the beach we took couple of photos with my digicam. But suddenly it locked and the sliding lens cover (On-Off switch) got locked. I immediatly took off the batteries. Later after few hours away from the sea beach, the buttons started working and camera switched on too. Now the images on the screen are blurred, without focus and the photos too are unclear and blurred.

I have two olympus 1010 camera's. Both have been dropped. The lens is patially open and the cover not fully closed. One will turn on so you can see through the LCD but only the top third of the field is visible. When photos are taken that is what shows up. Also it tries to focus but can't get it clear. The second powers up with information on the LCD but instead of seeing through the camera you see black. Phots can be taken but they too are black. What is wrong and what can be done to fix them?

I'll cover these separately:\015\012\015\012First camera may be as simple as the cover blocking part of the image, or it could be that part of the sensor is damaged. Sensor is the part inside the camera that light hits and converts to vo ... Digital Cameras

I have a problem with my Olympus C-750UZ. I stripped it down and replaced the bios capacitor and display screen. The top cover of the SD card assy came off and a small black spring (approx.16mm long x 1mm O/D fell out. I cannot see where this spring is located. It must have something to do with retaining and releasing the SD card. Can you help? Thanks Bill Erratt

The spring goes on the SD card door. When you look at the SD card door you can see a notch on it where the sping is attached to or locks itself on to. When you put in the door, you have to put in the spring first before attaching the door. ... Digital Cameras

Hi :) I have Sony f828 and the shutter button not working properly. I mean if push the button straight from the top, the shutter is not go (focus, laser is OK) but if pushing the button from top (by angel) or little from right by angle is working. I need to do this very gentile and must "fill" the button. Is it fixable? What can I do if can do myself? Where to buy parts, what I need. Thanks for any clue. Jan G. from NY

It works from an angle so the buttons internal contact is disfigured. I would purchase a new button or buy a used part camera on Ebay which are fairly inexpensive. That way you can have a donor camera to take apart and have a better feel about taking ... Digital Cameras

Olympus 570uz is not working and is not worth the cost of professional repair (as told to me by Olympus), so I'd like to take apart and see if I can get lucky fixing it myself.

My next step is to take out an x-acto blade and start cutting, so please let me know the secret. Tried finding a repair manual online with n

Focus Problem I recently bought Olympus C-750. The real problem i have with it so far is that when I point the camera towrds the subject, its focus is adjusted automatically and the subject looks very focused and clear, but when i press the shutter button, the camera re-focuses and makes the subject blurr and in the end pictures come out very blurry. Kindly help me out with that, i.e: do i need to do some setting to avoid that??? and plus i cannot find the manuual focus option in the camera.

I have the C740, which I believe works very similarly if not identically. Unless you have the camera in full time auto focus, I don't believe it actually focuses on the subject until you've pressed the shutter button half way. Until then, the subject ...

Broken screen I have had the Olympus FE 190 since May 2007.  At the moment, the screen is broken.  It appears to have some physical damage, but since I bought a protective case, I can't think of how it would happen.  when the camera is off, you can see a large darker spot on the screen.  when turned on, the top half of the screen is white, with the large black spot running through.  there also seems to be a lighter thin line in the spot.  the bottom half of the screen is fine and ready to take a

My LCD screen is broken on my Polaroid t737. I don't know how it happened, and I didn't take any action untill now. I didn't have the screen cover off yet. I just need to know if I can find a replacement screen anywhere, since I doubt it is even still under warranty. So yeah, if I could buy a new LCD screen that would be great.

I just turned on the camera to take a picture and noticed that the camera was not focusing. I tried changing the setting, turned of the camera and restarted it, removed the battery and put it back in. Nothing I could think of would make the camera focus. The screen only shows blurry and out of focus. The pictures taken by the camera are blurry and out of focus. Any suggestions on how to fix it? Thank You
