I had a problem with my Fuji Fine pix S 2950 (similar case) On / Off switch, this guide was invaluable to help me get into the top case moulding.

The fault was a crack around a solder pad were the SMT switch is mounted on the PCB , a simple solder job but an absolute bugger to get to.

Thank you for this simple and straight forward guide.
