M7 Shutter button question

What to do about a sticky shutter button? Once I press halfway to activate exposure lock it just stays there until I push the rest of the way even if I take my finger off of the button entirely. Then after I take a shot the shutter button stays in until I advance the film then and only then it returns to the original position. Can this be normal? I am a new owner.

Had this happen when I used the combination of the Motor M (engaged for film advance) and a shutter release cable. If I don't use the Motor M to advance the film, there is no problem. I have also had an issue where I fully depress the release and the shutter does not trip. I'm now thinking of getting a second M7 as a back-up.

Neither of my M7's has any shutter button problems but one was purchased used in Mint condition and one was purchased new as a 'demo' unit.

I noticed that this is not the only problem you have with this M7. How did you purchase the M7? Can you return it? With multiple problems, it may cost you more money in the long run.-Dick

I just sent it off to Leica. I have Passport so no charge. I got a great deal so I will miss it for a while.

I had the problem once, but just wiggling it giving a quick and careful blast of air from one of those aerosole things you use to clean computer keyboards with worked to free it up and have not had the problem since. Be very careful with the aerosole thing as liquid can blast out of them sometimes if you don't hold it straight and that would be a Bad Thing.

 

FYI, I have discovered one has to be very careful in the typing of the word "aerosole"
