I am going to suppose you do not mean film sensor, but merely the sensor. NO you will not damage it by pressing the shutter button, In fact you must press and raise the mirror in order to clean the sensor.
Even better and probably more profitable would be manuals in comic book form. "Look, up in the sky, it's a bird, it's a plane, it's CANON Man!"Well, we certainly have a few more examples of people not being able to read the manuals! I thinks someone might make a bit of cash by selling audio book versions of camera manuals!
