Help with broken 16-50 f2-2.8

Hello, it's been a while. I'm still using 100% my nx system.

Unfortunately today my camera dropped and the lens broke. Unfortunately it was the 16-50 premium lens.

Actually the damage is not that bad. The only broken thing is the flat cable internally connecting the camera to the lens.

Does anybody know the part number for the back part of the lens, I mean the plastic ring with the cable departing from it?

Thanks in advance.

Sorry, I can't help but you have my deepest sympathies and I hope you can get it fixed. How did it get dropped?

I search all over the internet for a "Service Manual, "Parts Manual", etc.
I'm 100% sure you did the same and all that came up is, "User Manual".
The ONLY suggestion I can think of (now); shop used, condition ugly, replace your broken part using ugly's.

Very Best Regards,

Re: Help with broken 16-50 f2-2.8

Yes, I searched already with no luck, but I'm almost sure that they sell parts, also.

I remember that there was a similar thread where a guy asked for a zoom ring or something.

I need to find out the part number (code) so to look for it...

Re: Help with broken 16-50 f2-2.8

If it's just a generic flat cable (not meant to move, etc, in lens) maybe a good electronic repair shop could help you? It's not like there's magic in it, just simple wires.

Re: Help with broken 16-50 f2-2.8

Sure, but I'm pretty dumb about diy work...

For this reason, I was looking for the rear inner ring of the lens with the cable attached to it...

I did drop the lens with nx500 on solid dirt ground with the lens good and thankfully it is still fine

You've been lucky, my lens opened and the flat cable was broken

Re: Help with broken 16-50 f2-2.8

Actually I have dropped it many times and the thread kind of not circular like usual but still manage to be usable I think

My issue is that it opened up and the flat connector broke in the final part (see image)

Re: Help with broken 16-50 f2-2.8

That really hurts. Some may suggest you seek online at samsungparts and do the repair yourself. Seek official Samsung see if they willing to help.I did and they kind of respond you to send back the cam. (Nx500 crazy mode dial). But I ignored it

This and the 85mm really are my most precious lenses still hope they will last long... somehow regret for leaving the 85 home so often in dry cabinet when traveling...

Best of luck to you

It's quite possible that Samsung reused the same cable for different lenses. You might be able to salvage it from some other broken cheaper lens. You could check with lenses you already have.

No need for diy if good electronic repair shop could help you and you cannot locate part number for the rear inner ring.

Re: Help with broken 16-50 f2-2.8

Interesting suggestion. The tricky part is finding an electronic shop nearby, able to fix the cable.

Re: Help with broken 16-50 f2-2.8

Exactly what I thought, also because the small flat cable with contacts is simply wired to the ring. Hence that specific part should be the same for all the lenses IF the flat cable has the same length. The bad thing is to select a lens to 'sacrifice'. The 20-50 is perhaps the best candidate....

Re: Help with broken 16-50 f2-2.8

It should be just the part with contacts and cable, pcb is fine...but it could do if price is not too much

It depends on the way the cable is connected to the board. If it's soldered then you have to buy it together. Samsungparts lists it for under 10 euros IIRC, this site does not anymore and it was 30, but check again.
