The lens came all the way out but the screen is still black and I could feel the camera and just barely hear it making the noise it makes when the lens is coming out but it was already all the way out.

My Olympus c-730 just fell on the floor while it was on and landed on the lens. The glass lens and 2 plastic pieces came out and the lens housing is now crooked. It won't retract in or out. I tried straightening it but it just makes lots of noises. Does anyone know the sequence of getting the lenses back in place? I can't find an exploded view anywhere.

Camera lens movement mechanism seems to be damaged, as when switched on, the camera lens does not extend out completely and the object appears blurred on the screen. Similarly when switched off, the lens does not retract back completely and it needs a manual push to put it in a little more. But even then it does not go in fully. Rest of the functions are working well. The damage is the result of an accidental body weight going on the camera, when it was in on condition.
