Thanks for posting this. One thing of note, you will get a shock from the flash capacitor if you are not careful. I don't know how to discharge it so I will be more careful next time. My camera got dropped (not by me) and would get intermittent lens errors. Using these instructions I was able to find that one of the small copper windings under the lens (I think its a magnet or part of a stepper drive) was loose. I glued it back on and the camera works again. Unfortunately I think the CCD also took a hit because there are lines on photos but not on videos or the LCD preview screen. I found a cheap CCD online so I am going to swap it out to see if I can fix it. After the drop the camera was a throw-away but I like to fix things so this might work out.
