    When? I would say the moment is starts walking away or initiates any discussions about food supply, toilet needs or democratic rights..
    If you ask 'Where' then I recommend a look into the Services section, the Consumer corner has a sticky thread about shops for photographic equipments and services.

    The few second hand /used camera shops in Peninsula Shopping Centre ground floor should be able to handle this.
    Inevitably, the question arises, is it worth paying the money to repair this?
    Presuming that it has sentimental value for your aunt, then just do it.

    Nikon Service Center don't servicing obsolete models as the parts are no longer available.

    and it might not worth to repair it as shooting film nowadays is not as convenient and economy use to be.

    maybe best is to keep it as it is just for sentimental value.

    There are various independent repair stores in Singapore. Most can be found in the Peninsula plaza area. The Camera Hospital is also another option.
