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)

cheers

Martin

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!
