Re: 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.

I think you need a new camera. Even when you think you could fix the shutter, there can and will be more damage to the camera. Today, a single repair could cost more hen a brand new camera with better specs then the one you would like to have repaired.
You will be able to replace the shutter button alone to resolve the issue. It is not required to replace the whole body. You can contact sony direct accessories and Parts Center to get the replacement shutter button.
If you require assistance with contact number to reach the accessories shop, you can ask me by clicking following link:
I bought a "for parts" dscw50 off ebay & unscrewed the side panels; this allowed me to remove the whole top panel (entire silver piece) & exhange it with the one on my own camera which I had broken the shutter button off of. Works fine now.
Here is a $2 fix to this problem.
It just takes some electrical tape, a small piece of manila paper or similar and one thumbtack.
After the silver shutter button fell off, I tried a thumbtack and found that it did a good job of doing the pre-focus and capturing of the image. I then took a piece of black electrical tape about 3 inches long and in the middle, pasted on a small circle of construction paper or manila folder type of paper slightly bigger than the head of the thumbtack. This piece of cardboard will lie on top of the thumbtack head. This prevents the electrical tape from sticking directly to the thumbtack so that the thumbtack is free to move up and down (and trapped in position) without being stuck to the tape. I then put the electrical tape in position so that the thumbtack is held with its pin stuck into the shutter button.
Works well and doesn't look that bad either since the black tape blends into the body and the thumbtack is not visible.
it depends on where it broke and if...(the button)
if it just fell
then u can just take the new button a shove it in untill theres a CLICK
if its broke
then u will need to pull out the rest and then shove it in
DO NOT TRY TO OPEN THE CAMREA IF U DONT KNOW HOW!!
you will brake the pins inside when u will
and then it will cost u as a new cam
