Re: shutter release button

Fraid not. It is increasing the case now that -with the exception of warranty work repairs are not feasible - The technology and models change so much are are no spares for older kit. A repair shop will cost you -packing shipping and inspection fee plus packing and shipping back to you with little prospect of a repair Money best put toward the next-more up to date camera in my view

I just bought a nice used Mamiya twin lens C3 but the shutter is locked up. There is a small metal piece holding the shutter release from moving. Not sure how to un-lock, seams to be a safety device of...

The vertical shutter sliding lever gets locked if the film doesn't get advanced to the next frame, and the mode selector is set for single exposure. You can't trip the shutter unless you have film in the camera and you forward the film to the next frame. That should allow you to release the shutter with the sliding lever.

Is it possible to achieve a 20sec shutter release via remote control

With or without the remote control, in the M exposure mode you can select the bulb/time setting. Without the remote, this opens the shutter when you press the shutter release and holds it open while you keep the shutter release pressed. With the remote, this opens the shutter when you press the button on the remote and keeps it open until you press the button again. This allows you to keep the shutter open for up to 10 minutes.

Shutter does not work.

It's not a shutter, but aperture unit is jammed.
Try these: Move lens all the way out and while pressing release button, gently tap on the tip of the lens using something soft/havy like small rubber hammer or piece of rubber.

Nikon d40x shutter stuck

The manual (pg 112) simply, and unfortunately, states this message "Press shutter release button again. If error persists, consult with Nikon-authorized service representative".

Some questions that might help: have you had the camera in some extreme conditions, damp, sand, etc. Clean the shutter button really well. Maybe use a small air blower and clean in the shutter release creases.

In the end, if the error continues, it will need to be serviced.

DSC-h1 Shutter button broken

I recieved my new shutter button from Sony and replaced it after searching on the net how to do so. I used rubber gloves to get a good grip on the button ring and turned it, I believe clockwise, and then replaced the it with the new button and ring. So simple and saved myself a lot of $$ though, $30 seems an awful lot for such a small piece of cheap plastic.

Factory reset Cannon PowerShot S2 IS

I found this solution elsewhere, so I can't take credit for it. It seems a small piece of dirt gets stuck between the camera case and the button to take the picture. The button doesn't release fully, and it acts like the shutter button is pressed halfway down. Try running your finger over the top of the button in a circle to release it.

How to reattach shutter button

The fix is real easy. No need to take the camera apart.
Order the Shutter Button Release Assembly from Sony. Cost was around $18.00 + tax + Shipping. I received the new assembly in one week.
Note the angle of the old assembly before removing it so that you can line up the new one correctly.
To remove the old button assembly, use a rubber bottle opener to get a good grip. Turn slightly counter clockwise. Then use your fingernail to lift it up. Look inside using a magnifing (sp) glass and find the pieces that broke off, a spring, a small plastic tip and a small snap ring.
Look at the opening and you'll notice two slots, that's where the two little feet will line up. Again using the rubber bottle opener and pressing down slightly, turn the newassembly clockwise. You'll feel it.
Make sure to clean out the pieces that broke off. I couldn't find the spring, now I can't use that little wheel to bring the viewfinder into focus for my eye. LCD is still sharp as are the pictures. Just the viewfinder.
Good luck.

Stuck shutter release button on my D100


The damage may require parts, but maybe not. If I were doing the work, I would charge in the $50-$60 range , plus parts if needed.

Nikon will likely quote you much higher $200+

DSC H5 - shutter button problem

Here is a $2 fix to this problem.
It just takes some electrical tape, a small piece of manila paper or similar and one thumbtack.

After the silver shutter button fell off, I tried a thumbtack and found that it did a good job of doing the pre-focus and capturing of the image. I then took a piece of black electrical tape about 3 inches long and in the middle, pasted on a small circle of construction paper or manila folder type of paper slightly bigger than the head of the thumbtack. This piece of cardboard will lie on top of the thumbtack head. This prevents the electrical tape from sticking directly to the thumbtack so that the thumbtack is free to move up and down (and trapped in position) without being stuck to the tape. I then put the electrical tape in position so that the thumbtack is held with its pin stuck into the shutter button.

Works well and doesn't look that bad either since the black tape blends into the body and the thumbtack is not visible.

Failed shutter release

If you decide to open your camera, here's a pictorial disassembly. Don't go any further than popping the top off to examine components in the vicinity of the shutter button. Look for anyhting different than what's showing in the picture. Remember that you can be creative with a little bit of glue, and a small piece of scrap plastic:

And keep in mind there's a potential for electrical shock. Read this first before you turn any screws:
