Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H5 Digital Camera
Mu DSC-H5 had the problem. I fixed it myself. The root cause of this problem is the polymer film on the contact of the shutter button is not durable. it deforms with use. The filim is glossy black in color. you can see it if you remove the shutter button. Carefully remove the filim using a fine blade. It is stuck with an adhesive on to the membrane switch contact. make a similar filim from a OHP sheet( use a paper punch) and replace the old filim.

I am on my second H5 that has just failed for the same problem (no prefocus). My first one they replaced the shutter block but that didn't fix it. Sony service says they have not had any reports of this problem,however; I have found other references to the problem on the net. My wife is trying to find out if they have fixed the defective part design or are just replacing a defective part with one that will fail again in two weeks. they are in denial!
