There is a rubber foam washer that separates the lens from the casing in the camera. I have taken a few apart and have found parts of these washers dried out and destroyed. Particles from these washers will get into the cameras lens and obstruct it, causing malfunction and failure. Some of these washers can decompose from either dry heat or other conditions.
