Inside the P4P camera, directly behind the front lens, is a small rectangular thin piece of clear glass. For some crazy reason this P4P that I acquired, had a red glass installed instead of clear. I had posted earlier asking if anybody could help me with the red screen. It’s solved. But I need a replacement that is clear. Could not find a part number to see if it was the same for the P4 but I don’t believe so as it has a different size lens. If anybody is got something like that Laying around or if one of you repair guys has one, please let me know how much you want for it. Thanks so much.

To get to it, the gimbal IMU board and the camera in front of it need to be removed. That is where the little piece of glass sits in a frame. Behind front inside lens.
Need to buy junk crashed drones. LOL

Thar crazy reason is infrared conversion and in fact it is expensive. At least try once to use drone as it is now.

I don’t recognize that part on the P4P. It’s about an inch + behind the screw on front lens. If you pull off the IMU cover behind the camera it’s in front of that. Thanks

The red glass is there for a reason? All it gives me as a red picture. My other P4P’s have clear glass.

That’s close. The glass is directly in front of that camera but still inside the unit. It actually touches the front of this. It comes with a little frame around it made of paper or something. Give it a look see. Thanks

You’re right, there is glass stuck to the board permanently. Just looking for the removal glass that sits in front of it inside the camera.
Yeh if you think it might work of looks the same as your board ,I ship it out

I still can't figure out why somebody would put a colored lens inside the camera when clear is the norm. Maybe one of the repair guys has an idea. Very strange

This is where that piece of glass is located in the camera. It in sets into a little frame behind the front lens but in front of the camera itself. Thanks

I have this apart. The rectangular glass on this camera is attached to the sensor. No glass except the lens in the black plastic lens holder.

With a slight bit of pressure, I popped it off the sensor.
And yes there is a frame made out of some material around this glass, but I don’t think it’s paper. Possibly a foam or very soft rubber material.
Certainly needs to be handled with care and not get anything on it. At the right angle, still attached to the sensor, it’s red, but removed and lookin straight through it, looks clear.
