    Ya, I know people have scanned the manual and are selling copies.

    Is there someplace on the web where I can get the PDF downloaded for free.

    My camera Coolpix 950 has the switch problem and I want to see what kind of
    effort it is to replace it.

    Where would the best place be to buy a replacment switch and how bad is it
    to get in a do it. I am very experienced fixing small electronics and have
    no problems taking this stuff apart and fixing it.

    I read once the switch itself was not something that can be taken apart and
    fixed is this really true?

    Thanks.

    If your switch problem is due to dirty contacts, you're in luck.

    But it's far easier, and almost as effective, to dribble a small amount of
    switch cleaner down around the mode switch. No disassembly required.
    (This works well on a 990, anyway).

    Cheers,

    You sure don't have much to lose trying this approach first, but I will say
    that the "Nikon950repair" procedure is much simpler than it comes across on
    the author's page. I found the tools at Wal-Mart for about $2.50 and used
    tuner cleaner. Worked like a charm : )
