No idea how it happened. Reading around, I don't seem to be the only one with this problem.
I don't really want the hassle and cost of sending it back to HTC for repair, so wonder if anyone has attempted replacing the camera lens cover themselves? So far I've found a few solutions (for example this one
), so I've just ordered myself one of these
to give it a go.
Just wondered if anyone has tried similar before, and can give some hints or tips before I try it myself!
Just to follow up on this, I replaced the lens cover myself in the end, once I'd found a decent pair of tweezers to remove the old lens (and enough time when the kids weren't around and I didn't have a load of other stuff to do).
Probably took me less than 10 minutes. To separate the new lens cover from the new back, I had to destroy the little (white) plastic tray to which it's glued. Other than that, it was pretty easy. All in all, the repair cost me less than £20, and it seems like new again.
