Shutter not fully opening


So are your pictures under exposed? Or is it something you see in your view screen, or is the lens not elongating out of the camera? If the shutter isn't fully opening that is a photographers term that relates to using the F-stop. It is not a mechanical failure in this case but deliberately caused by increasing your f-stop. So you will need to put in more information for better diagnosis.

Shutter Opens Partially


This is a common problem for the A520 (it happens on mine sometimes). Recommend trying only the simple fixes listed on the following web page, but do not recommend opening the front cover which is also listed here. The A520 is a little tricky getting back together.

A520


this must be a defective product if you did not accidantally drop it go back to the place you bought it or contact canon if that doesn't help. a digital camera is not a one week or one month toy , it should work for at least one year (or even 3 years depending on consumers law.)
