Some have used compressed air, blown directly into the button. this should dislodge anything that is holding the button down. Also check and see if the button is cocked in the body, you can pry it back into position and it should pop back up. It is a 2 position switch, first detent is to hold focus and bottom out is shutter release

Can someone zoom while taking videos?


Yes you can. The Olympus SP600UZ can definitely zoom in to the subject not only in still but also while taking videos. The same lever(can be found on the location of the shutter button) that you use for zooming in while taking still pictures, should be the same thing that you access to zoom to your subject video-wise

Shutter release inoperative


The "button" is actually just a plastic extension for the actual switch on the printed circuit board. You will have to dismantle the camera to gain access to the board and then use a DMM to test the switch contacts.

My camera will no longer show an image on the screen when i am trying to take a picture, and my pictures are coming out completely black. it is not the display button, what else can it be?


Very easy to fix for your camera. A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.
Recommend Fix 5A by flicking as described in the link with your fingertip.

Canon A620 is taking black images/ Can't see images on screen


First try pressing the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. If that didn't fix it... A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras.

Camedia C-5050 zoom won't take pics


Is your memory full? Does the camera attampt to focus when you push the button down 1/2 way? If not the mode dial may be faulty (you are not in picture taking mode) or the shutter button may be faulty (no focus attempt) Try to use the timer button to get the shutter to trip.

Olympus C-750 shutter problems


Changing the firmware won't change anything. The micro switch may be stuck in the on postition. If you are familiar with micro circuits, you could get the switch from Olympus or USCamera.com and replace it. Or, send the camera to Olympus or an Olympus authorized shop.

Olympus Digital Camera D-490 zoom will not take pictures outdoors


It sonds like teh shutter is stuck open. If the camera is indera year old it is probably still under warranty. Take it to an authorized repair shop and they will most likely repair it for free.

I don't know anything about this camera. However on most modern cameras, the Shutter Button is usually just part of a switch. Nearly always there is a rubber Diaphragm below the button, which has an electrically conducting lower surface. When the Button is pressed that surface touches a small printed circuit board, or part of a circuit board, and a number of circuits are closed. It could be that the lower surface has become stuck to the Circuit board, or the rubber diaphragm has moved and is jammed down. It might be possible for you to open the case, and get to this switch. Any other switches or buttons near by, will also become loose, so remember which goes back where. If you don't want to take any chances I would advice you to find a local repairer, who should be able to fix this fault very quickly and fairly cheaply. Good luck
