Film *ist shutter button

How hard it is to replace a shutter button on film *ist? Is it a common part with other cameras?
Thank you

Not sure what youare asking....if the question is are all shutter buttons the same or similar ? The answer is no....some seties of cameras use the same eg all Minolta SRT 100 series use the same. Pentax K series probably do all use the same as well. Nikon always seemed to change camera to camera and most manufacturers changed frequently.

I found a cheap one on ebay with a busted shutter and wanted to know if some one made the effort to fix it. Searching the forum I found some complains about non working shutters on the *ist.

A broken shutter button? Or a broken shutter? Or it just wont fire for some unknown reason?

If its the shutter, thats a very different scope of repair...

I think wed need more information to try and help...

I'm sorry for the first vague request for help. I've contacted the seller and it's a failure of shutter mechanism, so it's a no go for me.

Thank you for you attempt
