Hi Shannon,

What is the model number of your Olympus Stylus camera?

Approximately how old is the camera?

If the camera is still under warranty then it can be returned to the retailer or sent to Olympus for repair.

Otherwise a local camera repair shop can replace the button for you if it is broken.

Let me know the above answers and also what your zip code is and I can advise further.

Pete.
