Hi Doug,

Well the rubber dot has come off and I have glued it back on.  The other 
problem mine suffers from is the pivot shaft on the focus lock works its way 
out, so I have put a small piece of electrical tape over the end and it 
stays put.  ;-)  One of these days I will have to send mine in to get it
