Default A720 Disassembly?

Just dropped my a720 down the stairs. There's something loose inside that is interfering with the lens mechanism.

I'm quite confident I can fix it, if I can only figure out how to take it apart without breaking anything.

Has anyone taken one of these units apart before? I've got the back cover and button pad off, but don't see what's holding the front of the shell on..

Insanity = Replying to my own posts

Easy enough. Take out 6 visable screws, pop back cover off.

Push the entire center section of the camera out the back of the housing.

I'm not sure what was my loose piece, it was a small piece of tin stuck in the optical view finder jamming it.

Everything works now aside from I cannot half press the shutter button. Looks like the silicone membrane on the switch itself is damaged. :/

Merry Christmas!
