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

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.
Hi, I've had the same problem - there are 4 legs that clip the zoom button on (which holds down the shutter button) and the ends of the legs snapped off. I didn't drop it or anything, just one day when I got the camera out the shutter button fell right off.
If you're in the US you can get a replacement part from here: http://www.pacparts.com/model.cfm?model_id=EXZ110&mfg=CASIO&back=0&action=list_part
I think the part no: 10213210 is what you're after. Note that it's $8.50 (USD) and then they charge $11.50 (USD) to post it to you!
Unfortunately I'm in NZ and they won't sell it to me.
Its fairly easily fixed and its a common problem with the F30. The shutter button contact slides off upon impact when dropped, it must be re-aligned so that it makes proper contact and performs normally. All that is needed is the special screw driver for the F30 (easily purchased online, just google it: "screw driver for fuji f30" ) or bring it to your local watch/jewelry repair store and tell them to open it up for you.
We have two F30's and they both have been dropped, both did the same thing with the shutter button. But both were easily fixed. Always keep the camera in a safe place and away from kids, they are very sensitive devices. Use the wrist cord when taking photos.
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.
Fixed! Several people I've described the problem to asked me if I dropped the camera, and I honestly did not remember dropping it, but I could've just forgot that it happened. Later, (after this was posted) it slipped out of my hand and fell to the carpeted floor. When I picked it up, I noticed that the lens shutter had moved (to be closer together). I turned it on, and after a few automatic adjustments, the camera was working like normal again! Perhaps the same thing that broke it, fixed it!
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.
