x100F shutter button /on-off switch fell off

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys.

The entire shutterbutton and on/off switch assembly on my x100F has fallen off. Its possible to push if back on but it soon falls back off again.  Does anyone know it should be secured?  Glue, press fit etc..  (The camera is well used and im thinking of an upgrade so dont really want to pay for an expensive UK repair)

Any thoughts on this guys?


Yes, but you don't want to hear that:

Throw the thing away and finally get your "upgrade" if you don't want to or can't pay for a repair.
I may do the same soon for a totally overpriced graphics card as soon as it appears on the market.

Maybe you'll find something at https://www.ifixit.com/

Good luck. 😄

A little update.. the good news is that ive managed to super glue the sutter release back in position so it wont fall off, the bad(ish) news is that the on-off switch is now just an "on" switch.

I think I can live with this though..  Auto off set to 30sec, always carry a spare battery, and remove the battery when not it use is my plan.

Hopefully that will keep me going till the X100W/Y/Z appears!

    • Welcome to our forum. I‘ve removed your personal e-mail address from your comment to prevent spam etc. Concerning your question, it‘s unlikely that the buffer of the X-T200 can hold 50+ photos. There must be another reason for the behavior and I supect something like reorganizing data on the card and/or creating new folders. 
    • Thanks. As it turns out I list some stuff for sale once at a very similarly named forum.... 
    • Hello Everyone. I am a total newbee so I apologize up front if i violate and etiquette. Here is my question. Symptom: I have a controller that operates the shutter on my Fuji X-T200 camera so that it takes a picture every 2 seconds in sync with other events. After about 50 +- pictures are taken, a red dot comes on the camera display and it wont take another picture, until it finishes counting down from 5-7 seconds and it is now out of sync with what I have been doing by 1-2 events. The memory card I use is a SanDisk Extreme Pro 170 MB/s 128GB.   Questions: Q1. My first guess is that it is a buffer filling up and then flushing to my SD memory card. Is this correct?   Q2. Is there a way to configure the settings in my camera so it won’t buffer? But will store the picture to the SD immediately after its taken.   Q3. Will a faster memory SD card speed up the process? ( I think probably not as it is probably the buffer memory speed of the camera that is the limiting factor.)   Q4. The best solution is if I can find a signal or some sort, electrical, relay contact, blue-tooth or wireless, that tells me the camera is ready to take a (the next) picture.   Thank you so much, Sincerely, Jim Towne
