Well I was able to fix the lens cover on my digital camera, but only after about 4 hours of multiple assembly and dis-assembly cycles. But as with everything, when one thing is fixed something else breaks. And while re-assembling the camera I ended up nicking a spot on the flat cable that connects the LCD display to the motherboard. So now the screen is totally jacked up on the camera, but everything else was unaffected. So I’m back in business, though not at 100%.
Personally after 11,000+ photos taken with this camera, I think that I’ve more then gotten my monies worth out of this camera. So now the hunt begins for a “parts” camera on ebay, to replace the LCD or cable (if it isn’t hard connected to the LCD panel). Wish me luck.
