Have you had a look on the following site (you have to register) link
This is a site for Fuji users, there have been a number of cases of this problem in the forums, there was even a description of how you can fix the problem yourself.
It is also possible that as it's a fault that Fuji knows about they might fix free of charge, I would give their service department a bell.

Hi Stuart, just found this DIY fix if you fancy giving it a go.
Best of luck Steve.
PS this is a very common problem on the S series, even the new S8000 and S8100.
Contact fuji.

Though I reccommend you DONT do it tired and tipsy! LOL!

I contacted Fuji, via the members site, with a problem on my S602Z.

They responded promptly with a quote.

Fuji S9500 ......I tried the fix and it worked for a while. However, now the dial button has come adrift completely. I have contacted Fuji and they have said they will repair it FREE of charge if I send it to a repair centre they advised. My camera is well out of warranty (maybe it is one of the earliest) so I am well pleased. I have 2 Nikons but I like the S9500 for some work so I am pleased. Hope this helps all the S9500 users with this dreaded problem. Regards...............sodpot
