If you have recently dropped the camera or exposed it to excessive dust/sand or dirt the shutters guide tracks may be jammed and unable to move. I would advice taking it to a camera repair shop, and to avoid opening the camera on your own as it may cause further damage/voiding of warranty.
The problem might be that the battery has developed memory and won't charge further. My first battery used to do that, but then I read that you shouldn't leave the camera on the dock all the time nor keep the battery fully charged all the time because of the problem of developing memory. You might try running the battery completely down by taking pictures until it shuts down. Sometimes when my battery is low the dock won't charge (but goes straight to the red light), but when I run it completely down when I put it on the dock it charges properly. I hope this information helps. :-)
I had the same problem. I took my Z760 apart and put in a joystick from a used Z760. But the problem is that the joystick comes unglued from the small computer board. Take it apart and put a tiny drop of superglue on the joystick. Use a magnifier to line up the two little tabs in the proper holes. It should work fine.
I had the same problem. The cause was the looseninjg of the plastic clamp at the top. I stuck a a piece of paper (thick) on the side of the battery to stop its slide upward. It works fine. The tape may not hold the battery fast enough.
You have two choices
1. take it to a repair shop and get a quote[almost the price of a new camera I wager]
2. Try your self[bearing in mind that if you cant fix it you'll have to buy a new camera]
Chances are the in dropping it the button has forced it self through an aperture in the casing so that it cannot return.
If you have access to fine screw drivers[Jewellers/watchmakers]slack off the screws holding the case together- done take 'em right out just slack 'em-it might pop right back out- if it does tighten up.
