Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H2 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Sony DSC-H2 Button fell off too??

My Camera was about 13 months old. Then after taking some inside photos the batteries needed to be changed. The button had fallen off when I was changing the batteries. I could still take a picture if I put it back on so I put a bandaid on it to hold it in place. It worked for a little but now the camera is useless.:(

I am hoping the my Visa Card extended warrenty will cover it. In any case this happened before my big trip to Bali and I was very disappointed that I could not take it with me. The pictures it used to take were great.

The Sony dealer in Vancouver wants between $119.00 an 200.00 for the repair.

    I have the Same Problem with my DSC H2 and I am finding out now that nobady in town will work on it.

    All the camera shops in Las Vegas tell me that I have to send it to Sony for service. I think the Camera takes good pics but there being no Local Support I will not buy another one.

If you can do the repair yourself, you can buy either the complete shutter button assembly for about $40, or there is a repair kit available where you rebuild the broken button.

There is only ONE PLACE to buy the repair kit with instructions: DARNTOOTHYSAM com. Do a Google search for 'digital camera parts' and Darntoothysam is the first listing shown. Feel free to look elsewhere but you won't find the $20 repair kit anywhere else and on the Darntoothysam blog page there are instructions to tell you how to install it yourself.

If you don't want to try and install it, there is a repair package on Darntoothysam for only $50 that includes the part and installation plus return shipping of the camera to you!

Hope this helps.

The button that you press to make a photo came off the camera, and it won't depress to make a photo now. Is there a spring or something missing? If so, would a local camera shop be able to repair/replace...


Hi,
Shutter button is available in parts shops and local camera repair shop will replace it.
Sony will charge you too much to replace that button.
Let me know if you have any additional question.
Thanks.

The shutter buttom fell off just like many of the other people on here. Sony tech sent me to their web site to get estimate and repair ticket. It looks like I'm S-O-L.


If you do a search for "sony h2 shutter button replacement" on Google.com you will find a shop that sells both the shutter button and a repair service to install the shutter as well.

Hope this helps!
