The shutter won't work

I've taken it to a a few places and they're not sure on how to fix a camera like this. i've tried to get the shutter to work when i want to take a picture, but there never is the sound that it goes off. Is there any way to repair it or some simple way to gently take it apart and make sure that it still does work? I just don't want to take it apart and break something...

i rather enjoy this camera then the new digital ones that sell for way too much.

any help would be greatly appreciated :)

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Due to the age of the camera your problem is not the battery but the release capacitor located on the bottom of the camera when you remove the bottom plate. You can replace this capacitor yourself, just unsolder the old cap, but pay very close attention to the polarity of the cap when removing so you can put the new cap in place the same way. Put fresh batteries in and it should start working again.

I have 13 years experience in repairing camera equipment and i used to see these come across my bench a lot for the same problem you are describing.

Assuming the battery is good, their is a small capacitor in the base of the camera that must be in good condition.
