Command dial on a friend's Fuji Finepix S9000 is NOT functioning. Can't control aperture, shutter speed, flash settings, etc. Can it be opened and fixed (he has no warranty, thus no problem with opening it). Is there a special setting or way of turning or pressing buttons that he is doing wrong? It says to press (and hold?) a button then twist the dial, but no change is made as far as I can see. I have tried enless things and have much experience (though I'd be a fool not to ask others). A

I have a Fuji Finepix A800. It shuts off when I press the shutter button. I put new batteries in and also opened it up to see if I could realign the shutter. It was dropped once, and someone online suggested that the shutter needs to be realigned after being dropped. I have it open, but don't know what to do to realign the shutter. Can anyone help?

And if i set the AE Lock On, pressing the shutter button half way does not lock the exposure setting. so there seems to be an issue with the shutter button itself...is there an easy fi
