Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H2 Digital Camera
Silver button came off. Sony wants over $120 for repair which I refuse to pay. This has happened to two friends with the same camera. I will not purchase another Sony camera.
THIS IS THE FIX !!!!!!
Button Part# x21083252 Sony gets $18.61+$9 shipping...Ripoff!!!
YOU MUST BE PREPARED TO TAKE THE CAMERA APART. There is NO WAY to replace the shutter button without partially removing the underlying shutter/selector wheel assembly. You WILL BREAK the button assembly if you try to force it in. To do the job all you need is a good Phillips screw driver and a pair of eyebrow tweezers. Unscrew all the external case screws remove the rear half of the camera, then remove all the sliver screws you can find and use the tweezers to gently pull the ribbon cables out of their sockets (some cables use flip-up cable locks; they have black retainer that can be flipped up with the edge of the tweezer).
Remove the LCD panel and the metal plate behind it, unplug more ribbon cables and gently pull the entire camera assembly out of the front half of the camera shell. carefully remove the flash capacitor in the grip area and remove the two black screws holding the button/selector wheel in place. With that assembly out of the way install the new button and use the tweezer's edge or a jeweler's straight screw driver to turn the button 1/16 to lock it into the button assembly hole. The male protrusion should line up with the slot on the button/selector wheel assembly. Reassemble in reverse order. MAKE SURE ALL CABLES ARE INSERTED FULLY INTO CONNECTORS OR YOU WILL GET A "TURN POWER OFF AND ON AGAIN" ERROR!
