I dropped my Sony a6000 and the lens took the impact (SELP1650) rendering it useless. Is there a site where I can get an exploded diagram? I intend to fix this myself. Also, if anyone knows where I can source the broken parts I would be very grateful.

  • \$\begingroup\$ googling for "16pz50 lens" only returns links to your question - maybe that's not the correct lens model \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Obviously it's the Sony Sel16pz50 model.google is useless hence my question to a better informed forum. I hoped. \$\endgroup\$ Jun 15, 2016 at 21:53

  • \$\begingroup\$ I searched for Sel16pz50 and, again, found nothing. Not sure why I bothered to keep going but, having established that the model number is SELP1650 I found this and this which may be of help. I'll see if I can find a definition of "obvious" for you - as I don't think it means what you think it means. And if "google is useless" I have nothing but sympathy for the people who request 3.5 billion searches on it each day. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Stop searching you've only found what I have seen already like I said Google is useless in supplying an answer to this. I was hoping someone who had experienced this issue might be able to help. With a link to a drawing.Cheers \$\endgroup\$ Jun 17, 2016 at 9:26

Indeed, claiming that google is useless is apparently an exaggeration. Assuming the lens is a model SELP1650, I found a service manual here: http://elektrotanya.com/sony_sal1650_ver.1.4.pdf/download.html . Even if it is not a perfect match, it may be able to help you. I have serviced perhaps 10 lenses over the years, and I have never had the benefit of a service manual. Although, the lenses I was servicing were old manual lenses, which are probably a lot easier than a newer electronic one. Good luck.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Maybe an exaggeration admit but I am proved correct again. The drawing you provided was for the alpha mount lens SAL1650. I will probably attempt to fix this without the manual. I needed the drawing to just identify which part was broken.Thanks. \$\endgroup\$ Jun 21, 2016 at 2:28
  • \$\begingroup\$ Well then, perhaps Sony support is a better place for you to ask. It is probable that they only provide this information to authorized service centers, but it would not hurt to try. \$\endgroup\$ Jun 21, 2016 at 2:36

For all those looking for the same information I found the parts drawing here http://www.searspartsdirect.com/model-part/selp1650/0996/0500140/50041709/00001.html

  • \$\begingroup\$ Wow! You can actually buy camera lens parts from the Sears Catalogue? Will wonders never cease! (only somewhat tongue-in-cheek) \$\endgroup\$
