Fuji FinePix S3500 dropped - broken mode switch


\015 I recently dropped my S3500 and broke the mode selector switch (which is now held in place on Auto with adhesive tape) If I undo the tape, the switch cap comes off and the switch itself wants to fall into the body of the camera. Also may have a focus issue.\015\012\015\012Is this repairable? I'm reasonably experienced with pulling electronics apart and reassembling them, is there any info out there on how to do this with Fuji S series cameras?\015\012\015\012Maybe I should just replace the old girl :-(\015

Answers :

There is a camera guy on e-bay his name is"darntoothysam" he repairs cameras and may have the parts. I had a sony V1 and got an LCD from him. Hes been doing it for a while and has alot of parts. Do a google search or try and contact him threw e-bay. I know he has a website but im not sure the address. I know hes REALLY reasonable though. If all else fails people buy broken cameras on e-bay you could get some of your money back for a replacement. I doubt fuji will have the parts unless its REALLY common. Might try and contact them first.\015\012\015\012I like fuji, one of my favorite camera brands next to cannon. You might wana search e-bay for a couple weeks see if you can get one like yours thats dead maybe salvage parts from it? could build one good one from 2 if its cheap enough.
