Little FYI ; pry slightly on the side with the LCD. Once it pops, work the other slightly. Then pull the board up and out but remember the cables. THE PICTURE ABOVE WHERE THE METAL SHIELD IS IS THE CAMERA LENS! CABLES ARE ON THE SIDE WHERE YOU BEGIN PRYING.

why can't You show how the lens is mount to that assembly? That's the point of it... can we change lenses that way or not?

Polina Luzenco - Réponse

Exactly. Can the actual lens be unscrewed from the mount or it glued / fixed?

contact -

The lens is heavily glued onto the assembly. It would be far easier to replace the entire assembly than trying to remove that glue.

Christopher Adams -

the guy who wrote the guide apparently has never heard of pliers. it comes right out, but no idea what the threading is.

mattatron4 -

Actually the lens is just screwed into that last part. I took a pincer and gave it a slight tug and it unscrewed just fine. So if you bought just the lens replacement you can screw the new lens right in!
