"button fatique failure"


GB
          

I use the Zoom In button on my D7000 too much, it is now suffering from fatique failure. Is there any other way to zoom in and inspect captured image? Will it be still covered by 2-Year Nikon Warranty?

I don't have a D7000, but my all my DSLRs except the D90 have a menu setting that allows the center button of the multi-selector to zoom to a preset level. It's in the Custom Setting Menu in the Controls group, f1 on my cameras

Thanks for your information.
There is no other way to perform playback zoom, apart from using the dedicated button on D7000.
Nikon could replace it.

I asked for a firmware update to use other buttons such as command dial for captured image magnifying but to no avail. Previous DSLR models can do it but not D7000. What a disappointment.

Unfortunately, the answer to this question hasn't changed since you asked it 6 weeks ago.

I suppose Nikon does not allow firmware to become 'open source' for source code to be released for users to customize their cameras.

Sorry but they do not.

I am afraid that have the button repaired is the only option.

The tact switch is only $0.02-03 and a standard part in you want to change. Nikon will probably cover it even though it is apparently wear and tear and exempt from warranty coverage.
They will replace the larger assembly and not just the switch which is a SMD type that requires a steady hand and the right soldering skills.

Thanks. Do you know the D7000 camera rear left control tactile switch module part number? Have you seen a picture of it yet? I can replace it but need to buy the spare part.

If you have a friend at a Nikon warranty station you can probably order one through them. Nikon will not sell internal parts to shops or individuals who are not part of their warranty service network.

My suggestion, if you are skilled with soldering, is to replace the switch on the flex printed circuit board since that you can get at almost any sell stocked electronics parts store. I have changed them on D80s and D90s. I have the service manual for a number of models and they all use the same sort of tact switch.
