    I am using Diana mini since few years already and I never had any problems with it.

    Few days ago I was taking some photos, as usual, and after pressing the lever, it broken - it is completely broken and it's impossible to stick it to the camera.

    Here the photos of how the camera and the lever look like now:

    Is it possible to disassemble my camera and repair it?

    I have already removed all screws and almost all covers but I didn't managed to take off the front cover of the camera (and this is the only way I think that I get get to the point where the lever has broken). I know that with Diana F+ it is possible to remove the lens and then to access to the point that I need - but is that possible with Diana mini?

    Thanks for your help!

    Plastic part ... don't think you will be able to adhere it strong enough.
    Hmm, for the price of the camera ... I'd just buy a new one.
