I gave my daughter my XQ2 so she can take a few pictures with me. She is still in kindergarden but she wants to do what her Dad was 100€ Ebay find so I am alright if the camera gets damaged. It already has enough scuff marks anyway but it works fine. Besides at her age everything she can play with becomes automatically "hers" anyway

Problem is on my XQ2 the little rubber pad / thumb grip came off. Under it was a pretty thick layer of some kind of sticky glue. I cleaned it off with IPA and tried some superglue but it fell off a few days with crusty superglue residue.

Has anyone had this problem before (maybe with another camera). How can I safely reattached the rubber pad. If not I'll put some black tape over it so my daughter won't injure herself in the sharp post and sticking up (for holding the pad). But that would obscure the status LED.

Thanks anyway...maybe some of you have an idea...

I would clean the area very well with isopropyl alcohol, then use krazyglue gel to attach. I think it will stay on there good then.
