Default Aiptek GO HD (Z300HD-V)-Tripod mount broken-Need help to dissasemble.

Hello:
My tripod fell, and the tripod mount of the camera was broken.
I need to open the camera body so that I can glue back the broken fragment.
I have found 3 hidden screws, but still the camera refuses to open, it seems the plastic parts are soldered or something.

Any help is welcome. I have also contacted Aiptek, lets see if I can fix it.
Photo attached.

Before you tear tear tear , look, look, look the glued cosmetics will come off and show screws, somewill not 100% clear on it

the lens will pop off the cover 6 0 clock hole place somethingin POP.

I suggest glue it , rather then break apart cam, Iunderstand you wanta securer fit.

hope the video helps because its near the same design.

Hi Fishycomics. Thanks for your video. yes, that camera is very similar to mine.
uh, this thing is tough to dissasemble.
Ok, I see that there are some glued pieces, this was unexpected...
I am going to study it. I will report back.

instead of 3 dot-bumpers, there is a single linear bumper, but underneath there are 2 screws, yes, these were easy to find. I found them yesterday. Also, another hidden screw on top, under a metallic cosmetic cover next to the mic or speaker. Under the mic cover, (or is it the speaker cover?) no screws.

I am having problems with the lens cover. I have removed the glass, but only can access 1 screw. The other screw is under the flash/LED cover, and I cannot remove this cover. Foto included.

In the picture not the screw, you only removed the metal ring, you weresupposed to place a Object at the 6 o'clock position in a hole and pop, you pealed off the outer shell of the lense cover.

When the metal lens cover pops off it will expose two screws that hold the Plaastic light off. I no longer have the Action its thesame as the go. and I had the go. lol.

oh I hear you kicking yourselfnow. quite alright a lil adhesive will fix that, I did that to my 5300 series and its still holding strong.

when you post a pic use tinypic.com and set to webpage 6340x480 that will help out to view the whole page, a lil hint.

I am trying to remove the lens cover (devoided of metal shield) inserting my nail at 6 oclock, and pulling, but it won't come out. Do I have to pull strongly?
Looking carefully through the little slot at 6 oclock, I can see there is a screw underneath the lens cover.

update: nah, I can't remove the lens front. I will try to glue the tripod mount tomorrow. Its possible now because I can separate the chassis a bit now. Not very comfortable, but possible.

Use not your finger nail, but a penny nail, there are two tab points, its notsuper-hard, its strong enough to hold on.

the tabs are at 3-9 or 10-4 or 8-2

so if you're havingtrouble
do not hold the lens just place the penny nail.

then try squeezing it a lil and pressing

when you place the penny nail in you have to apply force to pry.

just placing in is just stroking..

a penny nail? do you mean a carpenter nail?
do you mean, puting the nail's head inside the hole? the hole is very small,
look at the photo. (why did you suggest tinypic? just for the resizing? I can do the resizing in my pc).
in the photo you can see the tip of the needle (not the head) inside.

edit: The second photo shows 6 slots in the lens cover. But I have not found them useful.
