It looked like the thread of the lens and sensor had bonded together. The thread was a right mess. So now I'll need a new sensor, any idea how much the vendor will charge for one?
Not sure they will sell one separately, but you can ask them. A picture of what you are describing would help. If the CMOS housing is intact, you may not need a whole new sensor, but getting the lens back in and perfectly aligned and in focus may be the issue. You might have to send it back for repair, if they will even do repair work. I don't think anyone has done that, or even asked them about it.
