    I can see a small button that is pressed by the back when closed, but
    opening the back or pressing the button does not clear the counter.
    Anyone have any thoughts on how to repair this one?

  2. It is the button popping _out_ that resets the counter. Prying it
    back with a needle or dental pick should reset the counter. The
    most likely cause is the foam light seal has turned to goo and the
    goo has glued the reset button in the 'in' position. Google for
    articles explaining replacing light seals.

    OTOH, it could be the counter reset mechanism is just plain broke.
