    The shutter button popped off my camera as well. the cameras reapir shop near me suggested a NEW one saying Sony does not replace these. It seems like a simple problem to fix but I'm having no luck! Does anyone know who, where or how to fix it?

    The shutter button doesn't work all the time.

    Lately I can't take some pictures because it gets stuck.



    I am so dissapointed because I enjoyed the camera when I first got it and now everything is so complicated.



    It was expensive to me also.

    My husband bought a little pocket digital that works great for 99.00

You need to use you fingernail and pop off the entire button assembly. When you have done this you will be looking inside your camera.

Set the new button assembly into the slots. It will not want to go on by just pushing down. The plasitc assembly is very slick so put a small piece of scotch tape the yellow stuff. I put the tape around the plastic assembly. Make sure you are only putting tape on the chrome plastic assembly. The reason for the tape is to get a good hold of the plastic asembly.

Once you have the tape on the assembly/chrome piece you need to really push down and twist clockwise. You will hear a click and then another click. Make sure you hear two clicks. I had to push and twist pretty hard to make it lock into place.

I still haven't found anyone to repair my shutter button..however I have found that a chenille stem fits in the small hole and I use that to snap the pictures. It's a little aggravating to have a $350.00 camera and have to use a chenille stem to snap pictures!!

I have had mine for over a year and the shutter button came off. I just stuck a small plastic coated peice of wire in it and it works great.

I have a Sony Cyber shot DSC-H2. When the shutter button is depressed halfway, it does not focus as it should do. Is there a simple solution to this?


The Sony DSC-H2 and DSC-H5 have a terrible shutter button design and the tiny little "bubble" that is responsible for the "half press focus" can be easily damaged.

Something in the lens unit is broken. The unit can't be fixed but needs to be replaced with a new or unit unit. A new lens unit would cost about half the price of the camera though...

Shutter button popped off sony cybershot dsc-h2


If you can do the repair yourself, you can buy either the complete shutter button assembly for about $40, or there is a repair kit available where you rebuild the broken button.

There is only ONE PLACE to buy the repair kit with instructions: DARNTOOTHYSAM com. Do a Google search for 'digital camera parts' and Darntoothysam is the first listing shown. Feel free to look elsewhere but you won't find the $20 repair kit anywhere else and on the Darntoothysam blog page there are instructions to tell you how to install it yourself.

If you don't want to try and install it, there is a repair package on Darntoothysam for only $50 that includes the part and installation plus return shipping of the camera to you!

Hope this helps.
