    Hi, I have the same problem, the mode dial snapped off on my S8000fd.
    Have seen other models with a more robust looking dial, so wondered if this a common fault. Sadly it happened after my warranty ran out.
    Can I get a spare part and is it possible to repair it without sending it to Fuji.
    Thanks in advance for any help.
    regards
    Steve

    I Have the same problem & just out of warranty also have been told that it would not be covered as the warranty does not cover plastic parts. I think you can buy a new a new knob but would like to know is it an easy fix to replace it.

Hi All
It seems to be a common fault with this camera after contacting the store that i bought it from and being given the runaround I gave Fuji a ring and was told to send it to them and it would be fixed at no charge. Sent away on the next Friday and returned the next Monday week. Great service very happy.

Broken mode dial?


Make sure that the SETUP option is nearest to the black mark on the camera, if you are still not shown the options menu, you should probably call Nikon USA to get the camera serviced if still under warranty.

When you turn it on the screen displays "mode dial in not in the proper position." Mode dial does not turn properly.


Something seems to be broken or off between the mode dial and the switch. It also may have broken internal parts.
I have had a camera with a similar problem. It was that the small switch inside was broken, and could not be repaired.
These mode switches can be changed, but will require a digital camera repairman to do such a job. It also could be sold for parts/repair on a site such as Ebay.

Dial mode broke off


This is a known defect in the dial's shaft. Fuji has been replacing them for my customers at no charge. Several have just broken off with no force. Fuji is good about fixing them, even out of warranty.

Mode Dial broken


Mode dial repair kits are often listed on eBay. Don't try the repair yourself unless you have some experience in dismantling (and more importantly re-assembling!) modern cameras - although given that getting an "official" repair is not economic it may be worth the risk. There are instructions for replacing the dial here http://myolympus.org/5050/modedial/ It's really not that difficult but patience and good eyesight are needed.

Mode Dial Stuck On Camera


Hey i had the same problem. Saw your post and none others. Finnaly i gave up looking and just started tearing my camera apart. My camera is a Kodac 7630 so the diss assembly may be a little different but with the removal of a half dozen screws i got to the inside of the dial. It didnt feel sticky but i took it apart any way and cleaned all the touching serfaces of the dial with rubbing alchohol and my problem is solved. took about 30 min and there was really no danger of harming the camera. Its amazing the just a little stickyness caused the problem i was having because i could push with all my might and the dian didnt budge. i thought a part was broken in there. i think this is because you allso have to push down to move the dial so a little tickyness combined with your downward presure makes it impossible to turn.
good luck
