Lesson 10 / Servicing Point & Shoot Zoom Units

This is a hands on lab lesson. A common problem with Digital Point and Shoot cameras is Zoom Lens failure due to impact or gear failure. Field repairs usually involve repairing the Zoom Lens when possible, success runs about 70-80%. However, Zoom Unit breakdowns are not part of a repair manual. Technicians must relay on experience wtih other Zoom Units.  Film Zoom Units are idea because they are larger versions of the same designs. This lesson will help you gain experience in disassembly and reassembly of any P/S Zoom Tube.

When you complete this lesson you should have some experience in disassembling, reassembling and repairing Zoom Units. You should  be able to apply this training to Digital Point and Shoot cameras.  This lesson is the precursor to working on digital Point and Shoot cameras.
