Well I have another problem ,I would appreciate any help;
I had a 600 acting up .,it was shorting out or something .
Any way I tore it down and re hacked it.It will not shutter a picture now,It comes on and goes to the different screens .but will not shutter a pic,
So I have either made a bad hack ..or I first thought my capacitor was bad ..but it would still shutter.
I manually pushed on the pad with my little screw driver and nothing.
And Ihave soldered that wire back on 6 or 7 times ...still nothing.

Any help would be appreciated. I guess I have a scrap camera..

I had an S600 do all sorts of weird and opposite things on several occasions. I had assumed that seeing that it was set up in a very wet environment. That moisture may have got inside through the rope seal. I took it home and placed it in a very warm environment for a day and it fixed it.

I would replace the seal and place it somewhere very warm for a day or two. I would also apply some isopropyl alcohol on a swab and go over the turn dial and push button contacts to be double sure.

Make sure the internal memory or SD card isn't full then try turning the flash off and see if it will shutter a picture. You can also initialize the camera in the menu settings and see if that helps. Finally unsolder the shutter wire and see if it will take a picture then.

Some very good ideas ..thanks to you guys.But johnny it will not shutter still.To bad a real nice 600.

Just don't understand,I looked at the ribbon it looks good still.I may have the switch shorted out..But I see no solder on it.

Ok, I found it, it has a white connecting ribbon and at the very end I or for some other reason...the thing is pulled loose just slightly from the little silver contacts.

I have another parts cam ..may have to make this one another.

It is a little out of focus but you can see the pad that is missing on my power button.

This is my parts cam, will I be able to still use it...And the white ribbon at the bottom left corner is the ribbon that pulled loose on the other cam ...Any thoughts???

You can still solder to that camera where the button came off, the hack should still work. You could add a momentary button switch if you wanted to to the hack wires but I wouldn't worry about it for the shutter. That ribbon is a problem. You could try resoldering it, you have nothing to loose.

Just push that wire down and touch it with the soldering iron with no solder on it. Like I said, you have nothing to loose. Is it just one of the metal contacts that are broken loose?

Will do ..thank you very much.

I did it and it worked,, to some extent.It shuttered many pics. when I touched my Exacto knife to the ribbon leads.

Just so close but so far away. I am thinking about taking the guts out of this one and trying to get the other one back up.


One way or another I am getting a 600 going.

I wish this place would be a little more active, 5 or 6 years ago it was pretty crowded.Some really good people on here.
