The camera was dropped and the thin, clear plastic piece (about 2 cm x 1.7 cm) that is used to look through was broken. Is the part available, I have disassembled the assembly around it or is only the entire assembly available.

There are a few possibilities. Is this the encoder strip, a thin mostly clear piece of plastic about 1/4" wide, 13" long and the thickness of a piece of paper? Another possibility would be a ribbon cable, a white flat cable about 1/2" in diameter. Neither of these are easy to replace but if you provide more details I may be able to help.Or Still having Problem Then follow Us For HP Support
I will recommend that you use some contact cement, and a piece of thin plastic like a plastic drop cloth, shower curtain, etc.
Cut the plastic piece that will be using as your patch about 1" X 1" square.
Locate the hole in the air mattress, deflate air mattress, apply contact cement lightly to the air mattress approximatly 1" X 1" and the piece of thin plastic material you will be using as the patch over both entire surfaces of the patch and mattress...let it all dry about 20 mins.
After it is dry then apply the patch to the hole in the mattress, apply a weight to the top of the patch, let sit about half an hour and you are done
Please take time to rate me thumbs up
Set camera at bulb/3200 ASA to remove top cover. Remove cover on front first to get to two hidden screws. Carefully remove the shutter speed/asa dial. It connects to a round plastic piece with a cutout. This piece is connected to a tungsten wire that goes over a series of pulleys around the eyepiece to the rewind side of the top, then through another series of pulleys down the side of the mirror box. Even if you are an experienced tech if the wire comes loose from the side of the mirror box, it is a royal pain to put back.
Now, if you can see the lollypop (what the circle is called) and it is still attached but not moving, then this wire may have broken, or if the camera was shocked, it may have come off of one of the pulleys and jammed. If it is floating free around inside the viewfinders, then the circle has come unglued.
You will have to unsolder the flexible circuit on top below the top cover and then remove the prism to get to the lollypop. If the tungsten wire has come loose from one of the pulleys you may be able to put it back in place. I usually carefully remove the plastic piece and wire from the eyepiece pulleys keeping slight tension on it and then tape it to the film door so it stays in place.
Try checking that a foreign object is in the paper feed rollers- do this by inserting a thin piece of plastic about 2 cm wide through the rollers from the paper exit side. Plastic like that from a shirt box (about 2cm wide by 20 cm long and 1 mm thick works well. I have solved this problem many times with my mx300 and it clears out objects which have droppped into the paper feed, such as Pens , yes pens. and paper clips etc which are otherwise hard to detect on this printer.
There are many factors that may cause this, so you have to follow each by each under certain conditions:
1. If you have drop the camera recently.
- Disassemble the camera, remove the outter frame (but keep the camera inside body intact). Turn on the camera and look at the shutter neck. Check and see if there is any abnormal shape, is most likely that the thin aluminum casing at the front of the lens got bent and you may be able to bend it back with a thin screw driver, that you can manage to insert between the plastic casing of the shutter and the aluminum cover.
2. If you do not drop the camera however have used the camera for a while.
- Disassemble all parts and clean the camera. There may be dust, sands, or other objects that is in the way of the shutter motor that caused the gears disengage.
if you feel technically inclined you can open the camera carefully and take it apart to the point where you can remove the upper circuit board ( NOTE 1: make a careful note of every screw you remove since they are different size and need to be used exactly in the same order) and then the small black plastic assembly above the circuit board below, you can see the defective switch on top of the 2nd board, remove the plastic part of the switch until you see the bare 2 contacts on the circuit board, solder a small piece of wire to bridge the contacts, now very carefully reassemble the camera observing the exact order of screws used, see NOTE 1. If everything is back in order insert the battery and the camera should work now. note: should you not be inclined to do this work and want to sell the camera as is for spare parts I am interested, drop me a note at: cocnutray at yahoo.com. A Nikon repair shop will charge between $80 to $110 FOR THIS TYPE OF REPAIR, THEY WILL ACTUALLY REPLACE THE DEFECTIVE MICRO-SWITCH. HOPE THIS HELPS :-)
i would do a tack together job on it,,
get some thick fuse wire and tiy it round inside the grill holes on the out side edge tiy each one together at about every inch apart around the grill that will hold the two grill's tight, then if you still have the broken plastic bits glue them back on using supper glue its cheeper that trying to get part that you may never find?
I'm supposing by eyepiece you mean the rubber or plastic eyecup. The eyepiece is the whole unit that contains the lens. Nikon has a service center in many countries. If you have one in your country then they can order the part. I have ordered from Nikon. They find the part number if you tell them your model and can email you an order form. Alternately Binoculars.com is very good to deal with as is Adorama Camera in New York. Both will sell internationally.
Turn the machine
around so that you are facing the back. Open the back cover. Pull down
smaller roller cover inside the machine. If you look closely
at the second smaller cover, on the right hand side (closer the the
inside of the machine), is a very thin round piece of plastic that is
only half the
length of the smaller cover. There are 2 thin plastic
tabs attached to either end of this round piece of
shift this over so that the 2 plastic tabs can now go into the space
provided for them. I had to move mine over only 1/4 inch.
In most battery opperated, fim cameras, the buttons are usually composed of a plastic outer, the part you press, and underneath that button is a thin piece of angled plastic that keeps the button from depressing when you aren't touching it. That thin piece of plastic usually isn't very sturdy and can and had a tendency to break in half making it impossible to get a battery reaction. If you trust yourself with a small screw driver and have a good memory of what you take appart, you can replace this piece yourself. Any camera shop will have the piece you need. Other than that, you'll need some super glue to secure it and you should have a refurbished Mode button~!
Good Luck and I hope you're up taking photos soon!
