This something you will have to contact a local camera shop for repair.They normally do not carry your exact part always due to the low % they may see but may order one for you.I would almost bet they will want at least $50(+or- $10) for repair.If they will not order the part for you,you will need to contact Epson at the link below.If it does require a screwdriver,normally the cameras have small screws and you need what is called a jeweler's set of screwdrivers.Not to worry though.They are very common,you may have seen them but not know it.They are the tiny screwdrivers,usually a set of 4 or 5 of them with a clear plastic top part to see them,usually at many major stores like K-Mart,Walmart,etc. although most of the employees do not seem to know their real name.Just go to the tools section and look.The person there,and maybe a few English speaking stock people may know the real name.Or I guess the old where are the teeny tiny screwdrivers at could work too I guess.They usually are there.If they are not there then they likely do not have them because they are not likely in the camera deparment even though that is the most common use other than jewelry.I have never seen them there and ocassionally ask just to see if they know when I see a different employee not asked yet or at a new store and when I ask for jeweler's screwdrivers where do they send me?Please do not buy the set where there is one screwdriver with changeable tips.Those are normally dollar store types.The 4 separate packaged ones should only be $3-$4,depends where you live,and are much better built.A friend bought the changeable tip one,ruined the main screwdriver part,which made all the tips useless anyway.I bought the multi-set years ago because i mess around with alot of my own electronics and even if you may not,they are very hady in the strangest situations.One example is I had to pry something open but it was so tight/narrow,what ended up working after about 20 mins. of everything else?Good luck!
