Question about Fuji FinePix A340 Digital Camera
The lens shutter on my Finepix A340 seems to be stuck and jammed. I can only move it a little bit, covering the retracted lens and effectively turning off the camera but not covering it. I have no idea why it might be jammed, but I don't want to force the shutter because I'm afraid it might break off. Any suggestions would be helpful.
If you're careful this problem is a relatively easy fix for many digital cameras. The design of the lens cover mechanism is usually simple and very similar throughout camera brands. Here's an example fix for a Canon A400 with similar problems:

had this solution, tried everything.
Eventually i slowly applied pressure on the focas len, and the zoom mechinism, when it was switching off, and it make a click. some sand came out, and the camera started working.
the motor is loud though, i then polished and oiled the zoom lens cases. and ran some more compressed air though.
I mean, a loud zoom motor, or a £100 repair bill?
i'd rather doing it my way. hope this helps
