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.

You will need to get a button assembly it is easier than tiring to get the old one to work because little plastic pieces might be broken or missing. this should not cost you more than 15 to 20 depending on who you get it from.Hope this helps.

Sony dsc-w30 photos taken some blurs, how w to set it right?


With autofocus digital cameras, blurred photos are almost always a result of camera shake. You need to hold the camera still even after pressing the button, as there is often a short delay before the shutter fires.

Many digital cameras have a two-stage shutter press- first pressure causes the camera to focus, then the follow through pressure takes the picture. If you are rushing this, you may get unfocussed shots.

Finally, make sure that you have not left the camera in Macro mode. This is a special extreme close-up mode offered by some cameras, and it does not allow autofocus on objects at normal distances.

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.

shutter mechanism inside may not be in contact with the actual shutter button...or shutter mechanism might have failed altogether.this one's definitely recommended for repair.

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.
