Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W30 Digital Camera
The SHUTTER BUTTON of my dsc w30 flew out together with the SPRING... can someone help me how to reattach the 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.

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.
