If your Canon EOS 40D camera’s shutter button is sticking or not working properly, use this guide to replace the shutter button.

A functional shutter button is necessary for any photographer to capture their work. Over time, the shutter button on a camera may become damaged or broken. If you notice your shutter button sticking or it is unable to function, consider replacing it for optimal use of your Canon EOS 40D.

Thank you for the tutorial. I don’t know how to replace the button. Which glue to use ? Must it scratch the connections on the flex circuit before gluing the new button ?
