Hi,

my Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro MK16i fell onto the stone floor and now the auto focus of the camera does not work anymore. It takes photos, but they are mostly blurred. Do you know if changing the camera part would fix this problem or is the auto focus function set in some other part than the camera itself? Thank you.
