If the button has come out, then it may be that the parts which hold it in are broken, or other damage internally.
One suggestion is to buy a camera like it with another problem such as lens problems.
Trade the parts necessary.

Other option is to have it repaired. That may cost more than it is worth..

Canon EOS Digital Rebel SLR Shutter Problem


DNAR!

Stands for Do Not Attempt Repair.

First of all, you will void any warrantee by doing so, with or without technical expertise.

Without technical expertise you will ruin your camera, possibly making repair by a professional a least
cost remedy for your shutter's problem, whether in or out of warrantee, as you would then either be
deprived of the use of your camera, or have to buy a new one, at the regular retail cost.

Even a refurb would be a good option as the unit would have been serviced, and Canon has good bench
policies and is an advertiser on our site for their downloadable drivers, which assure you of the best possible
results.

First make sure that your drivers are up-to-date, and that is as far as you should go without professional
intervention.

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.

Shutter button on Sony camera


Hey melboz,
You can purchase a replacement shutter button from the manufacturer for about $18 and I have included a link to the part for sale at Sony. If the camera is less than a year old the repair could be free thru the manufacturer, but I am assuming this is not the case since Sony is telling you they want $140 to fix it. I have never replaced this shutter button myself but from what I can tell by searching the internet it is not too difficult to do yourself. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

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


Ouch...

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+

You can use the repair service locater here on Fixya to find a repair shop in your area
