hi,
I'm facing a strange issue with my d7000. all of a sudden the on/off switch has become too tight. As we know it takes just a flick to turn in on/off but now it is taking lot of power to turn in on/off
any suggestion how to fix this please...should I send it to the service center??

I would send it in to the service centre. I like to leave these things to the experts to fix.

Did you drop it? Or did it just become like this one day when you took it out of the bag? Did you shoot on a beach recently? It could be a grain of sand? :unsure:

I really don't know though. I'd send it in to let the pros take a look at it...

Thanks for the advice.

Hi Conor, No I didn't dropped it. But travelled with that in a crumpler with 17-55 2.8 mounted. Although it was always my carry on but guess due to some accidental pressure the switch got tight.

Hi Greg, should I mail it to the Nikon Service Centre. Or go to some authorized retailer. [that too mentioned in the website]

Thanks...

The best way is to send it to Nikon indeed.

You can look up if there is a camera store nearby who is connected to Nikon so the store can send the camera to them...

Otherwise, you have to call them by yourself to send it in.

Good luck with it.

Greetings,
Roy

This would be my advise too. I contacted my local camera store when my D90 had a little accident last year and they sorted it out on my behalf. Very good service and the repair was cheap enough too.

Good luck. :)
