While the camera was not working I handled it very roughly indeed to try and find the fault. It got sprayed with freeze spray many times, I forgot it in the freezer, it was prodded and pushed. Normally I do not handle gadgets this badly, but I was certain it could not be repaired. You can imagine my surprise when BOTH cameras worked again after soldering on the new CMOS module.

I now believe the camera is very robust, but the CMOS cable is the weak point.
Yes, I wrecked one of the new lens modules I bought when installing it in a #16. It was the cable that failed. The second lens module worked fine. So, I will fit the new wider AOV lens to my #11.
