Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H2 Digital Camera
During my trip home for Christmas, the small silver button on the top right (the one used to take pictures) popped off. I have the silver button and a small spring that was underneath it... but they will not go back into place and stay. I got the camera in August from Best Buy and they have a 14 day policy - told me to contact Sony. What are my options? Thanks
There's a more detailed description on how to replace this on DSC-H1 section of this website. The replacement part and procedure, is basically, if not, the same. Just use care and caution!

Don't throw your Sony Cyber-Shot camera away!
We found a website who has created an entire comprehensive photo instructions for the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-H Series Shutter Button Installation.
They also have the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-H9 Shutter Button Installation Instructions as well!
Please note that we STRONGLY recommend using a flash discharger. This is for your safety and also for your camera's safety.
Hope this helps to get your camera working and start capturing memories again!

The release Assy # has been changed to X21083252 for the Shutter button replacement. Sony has the price currently listed at $18.61. No mention is made as to whether "how-to repair" instructions are included.

Hi, Is it an involved process to replace this part - the shutter switch in the DSC-H2? Is it replaced from outside just by removing the piece of plastic cover around it or the camera has to come apart fully starting from behind (total dis-assembly) as shown in the repair manual? I guess and hope it is a simple procedure replacing the button. Please respond.
