I don't recommend this camera because I only had a couple years before this problem

That would be great if someone could help me get around this problem in short run.

If it's the push down type then try about three or four match sticks and push them into the hole, but don't push too hard as they might break. It should trip the switch and allow you to get the images off the camera.
