Zoom button does not self-center
My daughter dropped my A610 camera on the ground; minor aesthetical damages, but the zoom button is now a little hard to operate and when released, does not come back to center by itself anymore.
I dismantled the whole thing following the instructions to fix the speaker (outstanding instruction btw) hoping to find something fixable around the zoom button. When reaching step #9 a small coil spring (about 5mm or 3/16th of an inch in length) came loose falling on the table, and I couldn't see where it was coming from.
I was thinking that it might come from underneath the zoom button, I dismantled that bit but couldn't figure if it was coming from there. I also thought that it might be coming from the zoom potentiometer (or switch maybe?) fitted on the flexible PCB, but that potentiometer does not look damaged and is self-centering when I play with it with tweezers.
So long story short, I reassembled the camera without the spring, the zoom button is still hard to operate and does not re-center itself, and in bonus I'm left with that spring, not knowing what to do with it.
Is this a good question?
