Shutter button won't work

I dropped my camera (in the case) and now the shutter button won't work. There is no other problem, it just won't capture a picture on any setting.

    I took it to a camera shop and it was something I could not have fixed at home. It had damaged the whole top panel and the shutter button was no longer "floating". I really appreciate your response.

Finepix s602s


How to turn on a Finepix s602s camera:
  • Hold the camera with the back of the camera toward you.
  • Find the shutter button on the top of the camera on the right side.
  • You want to rotate the ring around the shutter button using the little lever just in front of the shutter button. The first setting will put the camera in video capture mode, and the next setting will put it in photo capture mode.
  • If the camera won't turn on, try new batteries. It uses regular AA or rechargeable AA batteries.

I hope that helps you!

Shutter button does not work after camera was dropped.


You dropped it and that is the problem, it is junk. Repair cost will exceed price of good camera.

Not capturing pictures


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help:

Repair Fuji F30 shutter button does not work, case damaged


I also dropped my Fuji F30.
The half-press of the shutter didn't work anymore.
I bought a triwing / triblade screwdriver (about 5 euros) to open the case.
The flatcable running from the knobs on top of the F30 to the main print was a bit loose. After reconnecting it, the shutter button was fully functional again.
It seems that from the backside the most 3 three wires in the flatcable are for the shutter, so if your cable is also a bit loose, this might solve the problem.

NB Remember to only open the backside of the casing, there is no need to open the lens-side. Opening and closing the backside is really easy and could be done by anyone with the right tools. (read screwdrivers...)

Shutter release button is stuck


You have two choices 1. take it to a repair shop and get a quote[almost the price of a new camera I wager] 2. Try your self[bearing in mind that if you cant fix it you'll have to buy a new camera] Chances are the in dropping it the button has forced it self through an aperture in the casing so that it cannot return. If you have access to fine screw drivers[Jewellers/watchmakers]slack off the screws holding the case together- done take 'em right out just slack 'em-it might pop right back out- if it does tighten up.

D50 won't take a picture!


I was having the same problem.. And since I could not afford to take it to the shop, I tried everything I could think of...
Then I fixed it!!
It seems that the slide door behind the shutter was stuck for some reason... If you remove the lens.. (make sure the camera is in manual mode)... snap a shot so the shutter is up.. then gently slide the panel in the back down....
Once I did that.. the camera was working again.... Hope this easy solution works for you guys....
