Question about Nikon Coolpix 2100 Digital Camera
The power switch "ring" around the shutter button is physically broken. I was using it outdoors, ice fishing = cold. It has popped off, allowing the shutter button to hang (like a dislodged eyeball!) from its tiny power cord. The camera will still turn on and off and take pictures, download, etc. so long as you hold the switch/button together while you use it. Everything is so small that its hard to tell, but it looks like a tiny plastic ear or pin (or two or three) snapped off under the ring, where it attaches to whatever it drives beneath it.
Main Questions; Can a guy who works on cars for a living and ties flies get the parts and fix it himself? If not, any idea if its worth paying for a repair? I dont really want to open this rig up until I have some idea if its do-able...
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
The spares are not available and a repair is uneconomical as you can buy a perfect example with all accessories for an average of around £15 (US$24.50, Euro 17.50) on EBay. The 3MP 3100 goes for an average of around £20 (US$32.66, Euro 23.35).
Or get them for free on Yahoo FreeCycle. Often free ones have a broken battery chamber latch, but a small file, a carefully bent paperclip and epoxy resin glue soon make a neat replacement for the flimsy plastic tag.
