Sorry Bruce, didn't take pics, as I am new to posting things, and mainly did not expect any issues, as no one else mentioned an "out of focus" problem. I have played around today back and forth for over an hour, and now after turning the lens 1/4 to 1/2 turn each time, I have a perfect picture again. I really had no option but to open up this ring, since the lens inside had a huge smear/smudge on it. Not sure if there was any other way to get to it, but at least all is back together and I have just put the back panel back on. The Olympics look awesome on the high-def channel, and the timer clock lettering and all other fonts I can see are clean and crisp like when I first bought it.
Wish I could have added more to the sight by pics, but I thank you again for all your help with this.
