The button that contros the zoom and shutter snapped off my camera. It appears that the tips of the three tabs sheared off. The small spring that brings the zoom button back to center is still attached to the camera. If you set the button back in place, the zoom and shutter will still work, but the button comes right back off as you take your finger away. Can a new button be ordered and snapped on? If so, where would one order this part?

I have a problem with my Olympus C-750UZ. I stripped it down and replaced the bios capacitor and display screen. The top cover of the SD card assy came off and a small black spring (approx.16mm long x 1mm O/D fell out. I cannot see where this spring is located. It must have something to do with retaining and releasing the SD card. Can you help? Thanks Bill Erratt


The spring goes on the SD card door. When you look at the SD card door you can see a notch on it where the sping is attached to or locks itself on to. When you put in the door, you have to put in the spring first before attaching the door. ... Digital Cameras

The on/off button - tiny plastic fulcrum that holds it in place inside the casing, broke off, and hp don't carry the part any more. The tiny plastic part is normally attached to the upper part of the on/off button, and is so small, that attempts to superglue it were unsuccessful.

Nikon FM: Shutter release button will not allow me to take another photo and I'm only on frame 15 of a roll of 24. The film advance lever does not move the film, but it does open all the way to the right & shows the lights on inside (so the battery is OK). I changed the battery just in case, but that didn't solve the problem. I'm wondering if the film somehow came undone inside.


The FM is a mechanical camera, the batteries only power the metering system. Sometimes what happens is when you buy film say in 4 roll packages, they give you 3 24 exps and a 12 exp. I suggest that you rewind the roll and check this. You will only ... Nikon Digital Cameras
