Worth fixing broken pop up flash on G1 X?
Jun 13, 2013

When I press the button to pop up the flash nothing happens, like a hinge or spring is broken. If I force the flash out with a knife it sits propped up about halfway and doesn't work, but if I hold it all the way up with my finger the flash fires without any problem.

I tried disassembling the back plate but couldn't get it completely off, I got stuck where the lcd connects at the left side.

My warranty is already up and I'm not too concerned about risking further damage, so I'm willing to try any ideas or suggestions.
