Let some family members borrow my dx7590, got it back and a quick glance said everything was fine. Yesterday I went to attach my lens adapter and it would not go in straight. After closer examination the metal ring around the lens housing was dented. Naturally, all involved parties knew nothing :roll:. No big deal, they said, just a tiny ding.Well, when I can't use my lenses + filters it is a big deal. It was dinged just enough to prevent the adapter from threading in straight

What to do...first scoured the internet for parts-no luck of course. Next went to ebay and bid $3.50on a non working 7590 as-is figuring it could be my parts car. The decided to try and remove the ring. Very gently, very carefully. Lo and behold, got it off and managed to put it back in round and all is well in the world:-)
Hope noone else has to do this but if you do-first notice the small alingment notch on the bottom of ring. I inserted a small pick into here and gently pried. Leave that pick holding it and work another one around the ring, slowly prying. There are no catches just some sort of adhesive holding it in place. Note the adhesive on the inside of the ring

Work carefully and the ring will come off. After getting it back in round again and a few test fits to make sure the tube would fit , I removed the old glue and put a few small drops of epoxy on it and replaced it. A happy ending:G. Oh yeah, Igot outbid onthe parts camera by 50 cents, LOL

Good job on the repair, Dan. Hope the parts camera came cheap. Now that it's fixed, can I borrow your camera next weekend to take some shots on my rock-climbing trek. I don't want to risk damaging mine. LOL.

I can imagine the furry when you discovered it!! Most non camera owners don't realise the attachment we camera owners have for our cameras! Way to go and you have given me my good info for the day! Now I wouldn't be afraid to work on mine if that happened! Or better yet I'll just send it to Dr. Dan! LOL Priority mail of course! LOL

I'm just glad that you can still use that 7590. I can't imagine how that would feel.
