Hi. Picked up a used Eve on craigslist for what i thought was a steal($150 with 8gig microsd card)
Upon actually closely looking at it though, i see there is some stuff on the lens and the screen is a bit scuffed up.
Screen-wise, i was thinking of *VERY* carefully using some brasso with my finger, just to soften the edges. I know going too far can damage the touchscreen.
Getting at the inside of the lens though, seems more problematic. It looks like just a bit of black gunk off centre(just out of the auto-focus box) that must be on the inside since wiping the outside has no effect.
I thought it would be a simple case of removing the 8 screws on the back(6 along the edge, 2 behind the battery) and sliding a guitar pick between the seam to pop the friction locks off... but no luck.
Anyone have some advice?
Also, anyone know where to pick up cheap battery plates? There's a tiny crack in mine thats just cosmetic but if i can get a new one cheap id pay for it.
