REPAIR YOUR DIGITAL CAMERA. I have been given several good digital cameras with this exact problem. All ended up torn apart for pieces for my art. TOO BAD, I could have fixed them and given them to a needy family or something!
The rest of this camera series (2 more vids) can be found HERE. More repair your stuff instead of throwing it out can be found HERE.
Please - go forth and recycle - and TEACH recycle.
