Nicholas,

Would you mind if I let our Mr. Barker, Fujifilm Assistant Customer Services Manager in Bedford, UK,know about your broken command dial, drawing his attention to this thread? I think it important that this one doesn't slip through their net and go without due appraisal.

One thing for sure Nicholas, is that we are all behind you with this.

Hopefully Fuji will take note and the next model will have a stronger and better designed component.

More hopefully, they will also take notice of the terrible exposure/focusing issues reported by many others in faulty cameras. Re: Steve's data base and the returns survey. (let alone the many others reported on loads of other sites)

Good luck Nicholas and fingers crossed.

Regards

ISoS

Hi Nicholas & all..I would agree when you say "the command dial should be recessed"

I still have a Fuji 602. It also has a command dial & I have compared it with the 9500 dial. There is quite a difference.

As you all know the 9500 dial looks like this. There is some "overhang"

But the 602 dial looks like this. It is more recessed. It appears and feels more sturdy.

Best wishes & good luck Nicholas.

Fellows , i put some pictures to explain how to open the FUJI S9000 to repair the command dial .

I recommend this procedure to only experienced people.

This is the second time , i open my Fuji S9000. The first time, I glued the small part broken .

Now, it is broken again. Soon ,I will put the solution here.

Good luck !

I passed the day, trying to fix the dial. I did not find no Allen key that could substitute the axle of the dial. Only the key Torx T7 serves, but it is so difficult to cut.

I tried to construct to a bronze axle, using a rasp. It was reasonable. When I did mount I perceived that the axle of the dial was out of the center of the rotary switch of the electronic circuit.

For my surprise, I discovered what it is causing the disruption of the axle. The electronic circuit was glued in wrong place ! This is an error in the process of assembly of the plant of Fuji.Look for the displacement.

Therefore it is not only to substitute the axle. The electronic circuit must be re-positioned in the correct place.

Fuji S9000 command dial broken - Worlwiide RECALL need !

I'm trying to repair my Fuji S9000 command dial broken,

because here in Brazil the repair center delay the repair

for more than a month !!

When I mount a new bronze axle that i construct , I

perceived that the axle of the dial was out of the center

of the rotary switch of the electronic circuit.

For my surprise, I discovered what it is causing the

disruption of the axle. The electronic circuit was glued in

wrong place ! This is an error in the process of assembly

of the plant of Fuji.Look for the displacement.

Therefore it is not only to substitute the axle. The

electronic circuit must be re-positioned in the correct

place.
