Button came off

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.

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!

Hello, I have a prob with my Sony HCD-RV999D I just bought it from a friend, I plug the outlet everything is normal, I press the power button, the system turns on normally, but after 3 second it turns...

The reason this happens is because it takes about 3 to 5 sec. for the output circuit relay to kick in after power up, im sure at this point is when your receiver shuts off and flashes red. You have a bad output Transister its shorted to ground and the sony's protection circuit kicks in and shuts it down. Unless you are a electronic Tech. you will have to take it in to be repaired its going to be about 120 dollars to repair. Now im assuming your speakers are ok, if you have them hooked up when you do this try disconnecting them and try to power up if it does you have a shorted speaker, but normally Sony just displays overload protection on the display. Im sure you have a shorted Trans. sorry for the bad news good luck.

Silver button to take picture popped off

Hey lindamontero,
You can order the button from Sony at 1-800-222-7669, but unless you have camera repair expertise I would not try repairing it yourself. I would suggest you shop around for a repair center with a lower repair cost. There are many online that you can mail you camera into, or you could go to your local Best Buy™ store and the Geek Squad® precinct in the store can send it out for service.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

Sony DSC- W55

Hi Shubha

If it is only 3 months old, you have a service guarantee from Sony. You find your local Sony service center in the blue booklet supplied with the camera.

I will warn you though, sticky buttons normaly indicate moisture or liquid damage to the set. Something Sony might ask you to pay for as this is not covered by their warranty.

Remember to take your proof of purchase with you as this will surely speed up the repair process.

Good luck
