Introduction

This lens is what focuses the light on the mirror, and by extension the film, when taking photos. The shutter lies directly behind it. It is very easy to replace, as it only requires the removal of the front plate to access, and is held in place only by grooves into which it snaps into place. This guide will illustrate how to remove this primary lens.

Parts

No parts specified.

  1. Begin by opening the top of the camera (flash assembly) to a slight angle. Next, angle the flash assembly slightly upward and pry off the connections carefully. Be careful not to damage the ribbon cable. This is essential to the operation of the flash.
