Battery Grip Shutter button not shooting


Recommended Posts

Hi there!

So, I have a brand new X-T2 Battery grip I took out of the box. 

It worked well for portraits for two sessions but not the shutter button stopped shooting, it only does the focus and will not shoot.

Not to mention the constant battery empty thing - Which I didn't care for so long that I could shoot portraits comfortably.. But now the shutter button?


Cleaning with isopropyl or sanding the contacts does not work at all and makes no difference.... I could try dielectric grease though. 


Searching the forum I read that this is a crappy design and nobody ever got it to work.. Perhaps I sohuld buy the Meike one and hope they didn't design it like sheeps? Does the Meike grip work OK?


Thanks much for any idea :)
