Hmm, I have my for parts ME Super on my desk. Looked under the top cover, and I don't see how the button could fall off without something breaking. Granted there is a bit of a difference in this area since the Super adds the buttons and an "M" position, but I wouldn't expect it to be too different.

Options would probably be-
get a top cover from a parts camera and put it on your camera
send the camera in for a repair. Eric in TN Home is highly recommended around here. You could contact him and see if he has the parts for the repair.

It's probably cheaper to get a second ME body used - they're cheap as chips. I have one I tried to sell in the Marketplace recently that had no takers at $30 shipped.

Hi Ashley,
If the camera is an ME and not an ME Super and if it's only the black ring that's missing I can send you one. Let me know.
