Locate the four screws on the lens unit by the corners and remove them to loosen the lens casing from the main frame. Make sure to keep hold of the unit screws to use for the next step.

the lens covers on my lens broke (the small black pieces that cover the lenses) and i am unable to put back on, will this affect my camera and pictures because of the ex poser?

When I dropped my instax mini 8, none of the lense pieces broke, they just fell apart, I just need to puzzle them back together. Can you make a tutorial to put the yellow and black parts in the lense back together?

My daughter dropped her camera and the round, hard plastic part that goes over the lens fell out along with a black piece that has four prongs. There is also a spring attached at a section that would look like 4-5 o'clock if looking at the camera head on. I am not sure where the other end of spring attaches to. Please help

I followed this tutorial but when I initally took the case apart a small rectangular piece fell out and I'm not sure where it should go. The piece has a hole which is set to one side, and a slight groove and arch. I can't see the piece on any of the tutorials. Can anyone help? Thanks

Any response to the first 4 questions? Same issue here - puzzle pieces do not go back together.
