How to fix Nikon Coolpix p7000 lens cover problem

My Nikon Coolpix P7000 lens cover looks not works:

Today I got bored and I decided to fix it:

Well, the lens and cover unit cleaned of dust and now you need to connect everything in reverse order.
But my cover still not work properly after cleaning, the problem is probably in the weaker springs. I decided to completely remove the lens cover unit, and later I plan to stick 40.5mm UV filter to protect the lens from dust.  Now my camera looks like:

I ordered the 40.5mm UV on ebay and then stick it on the ring and my camera would look like:

 If you're a little afraid to disassemble the lens, you can always order a new lens unit, you can find it on ebay

 Today I received the uv filter 40.5mm (2.55$ on ebay) and decide to stick it to protect the lens from dust. Now my camera looks not very nice, but I hope practical, filter glass is very easy to wipe.

  1. Do You have any Flicr account?
    Great Post!

    Greetings from Poland,

  2. Hi Marcin, my nikon P7100 lens is absolutely stuck. A nikontechnician examined the camera and said that the lens unit should be changed. The price for this job is higher than a new camera! Do you know how to disassemble the camera to do this job by myself? I see many screws on the cover but I don't know if there is more tricks inside. Thank you.

    1. Check this item on ebay http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nikon-COOLPIX-P7100-LENS-UNIT-ASSEMBLY-Camera-/330749199280?pt=Digital_Camera_Accessories&hash=item4d023043b0
      looks like they provide insructions for setup

  3. Hello,

    Can ypu please elaborate how you installed the filter? Just removed the ring and glued it on, from the looks of it?
    Did you put on the ring which was removed in step one, beside it - or instead of it?

  4. And no problems with picture quality? distortions from uneven glueing?
    Reason for asking: I'm going to try and do the same.

    1. If you want to be sure about no problems with quality just remove broken curtains. Using UV filter always makes some changes to picture quality, and you need keep it clean always and sometimes more lens flare

  5. You need to see how this kid is able to make
    over $2000 a month selling pictures he took
    with his camera!


    He lays out exactly how you can do it too!
