Thread: Sand in my LX3 - how to clean?

    Sand in my LX3 - how to clean?

    I was at the beach last week. Today when extending the lens, I can hear grinding sounds. The lens still works and extends properly, but I really need to get the sand and grit out. Any advice?

    Hi Scott,

    I posted a little story in the LX3 Images thread a few months ago when I fell over on wet ground and dumped my LX3 in muddy water. I took it to a local camera store who sent it off to a nearby camera repairer who took the lens off and cleaned the mud from inside the lens. Cost about 60 and has worked perfectly since.

    Thanks Gandolfi. Sounds wiser than taking the screw driver to it myself (which I was about to do...).
