Default 2800 Text wearing off the back of camera

The 'DISP', 'MENU', 'OK' and 'BACK' text on the back of my 4 month old 2800 is wearing off where my thumb rests when taking photos. Does anyone else have this problem?

Tom,
If these items are slightly recessed take batteries out, get colored alcohol based pen and color faded area, dry, then then use a tissue just barley moist with alcohol and clean off top of button/switch.
Good luck,
Gary

Have the same problem with my 2800 but only the menu and back buttons are erased. this doesn't present any insumountable difficulties. I dont fancy messing around with the silver finish

My 2800 is lesss than 3 months old and the DISP has DISaPpeared. I don't think I'll have too much trouble remembering what the button does, though...

I have placed a piece of thin, transparent gummed sheeting (Mac-Tac) over the three groups of labels beside the LCD, rounding the ends of the plastic to prevent curling with usage. This prevents skin oils, etc from wearing off the labels.

One other way to prevent this is to use a clear fingernail polish, this tend to keep writing there longer. This will only allow you to preserve what is left though.

Good Luck~
