    The TX100 by all accounts is difficult to open up. I also remember reports that Hitachi themselves compromised the optical lens shift mechanism when putting the cover back on.

    Can't recall anyone mentioning the TX10 in this respect.

    Have you tried blowing compressed air in every orifice? :D

    Most people do this first, helped by removing the air filter. I wonder if removing the bulb too will allow some more access?

    Good luck!...PJ :)
