Lumix FZ10 - Open heart surgery - Lens Unit

Eleanor dropped her Lumix FZ10 (my old camera) and the entire lens barrel was about 15° out of alignment and would not budge. The camera was giving a system error.

 

I decided I had nothing to lose, so managed to track down a service manual on the web.

An hour later after reseating the lens on its track and making some minor repairs on a plastic internal mounting bracket for the lens unit (using epoxy glue), the camera was back in action, much to Eleanor's elation
