    Found my rear camera lens cracked today. I have no idea how this happened as I have not dropped it.
    Is this an easy fix?

    Look for a "tear down" vid of the s3 on youtube to judge but tbh it dont look like a DIY job. Think the camera unit is whole.
    Hope not and good luck bro..
    Thats a **** of a thing to have happened

    Unbranded international s3 with Official JB. Paisley, Slotland, Western Europe :beer:

    Yes I am not happy. Looked on YouTube and there is a vid on removing dust from behind the camera lens. The bloke on there just prised the lens off with a pin and popped it back when done. So I am thinking just a lens replacement as the camera is fully functional. Looked on eBay and there are the chassis/ covers complete with camera lens for 4 posted. Could maybe use that lens and remove my cracked one. Worth a try I think first.
