X100S with stuck viewfinder curtain - to service or not to service?

Hey all! This is someone else's picture of the same issue, but mine looks exactly the same. The question is - to service? CAN I even get it serviced? I'm in the eastern United States. Should I check out third party repair options? If it's something that can be done for ~$150 or less I'd definitely love to get some more mileage out of this old guy image.gif.65b4c350d4781d91bf3c1add901fb039.gif Tried the usual tricks people post to remedy this issue - firmware, sd cards, light tapping etc, nothing fixed it.

Fujifilm USA should be able to repair it without issue. They are located in New Jersey, you'll just have to ship the camera to them after talking on the phone with support.
