F31fd broken shutter button - any suggestions?

My Fuji F31fd shutter button is broken - I think. It briefly still took pictures but would not work at the halfway down "focus lock" position, and now it does not take at all. Everything else appears fine. For most cameras I would just buy a new one, but this is the discontinued F31 which is great and has sort of a cult following - I would like to fix it. All the camera shops want to send it off for weeks just to look at it. It will be expensive and out of comission for the holidays. I just wanted to know if anyone here has had a similar problem with this camera or another Fuji and knew exactly what was wrong and the best way to fix. Thanks for any suggestions.
