Being very careful, follow this pictorial disassembly (it's in Estonian, but just follow the pictures). Don't go any further than popping the top off the camera! Look for anything obviously broken off near the vicinity of the shutter button, or looking very different than what's in the pictorial. Keep in mind it's amazing what you can do with a little glue and scrap pieces of plastic:
Also, pay attention to the following post as there is some potential for electrical shock:

SOURCE: shutter button stuck
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

Common fault due to perished rubber parts. Can be usually be repaired, but do not try to force the camera, that may cause damage which can not.

The Pentax is a easy fix, maybe.. If you feel comfortable removing the bottom cover, then remove the 3 cross point screws. The battery, if installed will be loose. Looking at the bottom section of the camera, locate the tripod socket. On on side is the battery compartment, the other an L shaped lever. Under the L shaped lever is a brass plate with a slot in it. In that slot is another lever that has a spring going through the end eyelet. Move that lever toward the front of the camera until it latches on the L shaped lever above. Then try the release.
The first thing to try on the X700 is fresh batteries. Clean the battery cap and contacts with a pencil eraser.
