    This camera has been great, until droped onto the floor this week with
    lens extetion out. It got twisted when it hit floor. Now in pieces on
    my office table. Found the small metal pins on the zoom lens cover had
    poped out. I cannot see how to put the lens unit back together without
    stressing it all. Can anyone help me with the rebuild instructions.


    3x optical zoom
    2.5 Digital zoom
    olympus zoom 6.5-19.5mm 1:2.8
    lens casing has a white 38 and 37 painted on it..
    lens cover also has P10 in the moulding.

    Hi Tim.

    Did the same thing to my C2000. It hit the ground with the lens extended
    and cracked the inside piece of the housing. It would have cost more to
    repair than the price of the C4000 I bought to replace it. Not sure if it's
    a do-it-yourself project - lenses are pretty precise instruments.

    Best of luck.
