Camera Disassembly

November 3, 2017

My grandma (Mimi) got a new camera because her old one broke, so she gave me the old one to try to fix.  I took it apart but wasn't able to fix it, so once I decided it was un-fixable I tore it apart as much as I could.  I didn't keep most of the pictures, but here are a few pictures of the guts of a point-and-shoot camera from 10ish years ago.

The main problem - zoom is stuck, so the camera won't turn on or anything until it is fixed.  


 The lens assembly - this is the part that I would have to rip apart in order to fix the bent mechanism.  I knew I couldn't reassemble it if I took it apart.
