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.

Re: Lens shutter stuck
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:

Thanks for using FixYa. With the
camera closed and off point it straight up (lens towards the ceiling) and hit
the power button while holding down the shutter release. When the camera
opened, it immediately tried to focus for the picture it was told to take, and
apparently it forced the lens to move.
also try blowing compressed air around the lens cover to clean it. Now slide a
thin strip of paper between the lens cover shutters and the outer support ring
and move it around 360 degrees. This will clear the debris stuck there. With the
lens barrel extended and pointed downward, tap the lens barrel with a pencil
while you extend and retract the lens by powering the camera on and off. Repeat
these steps several times to resolve the issue. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or
else revert for further assistance. Thanks Rylee
The lens cover of PSA60 opens along with the move of the objective lens. Normally the camera will sound an error beep when the lens does not end to the end position -- the lens cover is also not fully opened. In reverse, the lens will be retracted when the camera is switched off. The "shutter" (outside lens cover) might have something stuck inside the blades or other mechanical parts that prevents the lens cover fully closed. Try to blow with a clean air (no hot air - because it can damage the electronics or plastics). Or maybe the blades are probably not flat that may create resistance on the surface. Try to flatten the blades by hands. Or maybe the mechanical systems need to be calibrated (by Canon service center). My suggestion, try to exchange/trade-in your PSA60 with the latest model at the Canon center, because I have done it last year (trade-in with PS S5IS).
my daughter sat on ours while it was on and the lens wouldn't retract. I tried the banging repair suggested for a stuck lens. After quite a few tries, it got the lens to retract when turned off but it wouldn't stay out when on, so i grabbed the lens and gently pulled it all the way out while it was on and it worked! (phew!)
you can't fix the problem yourself.Because i think there is a problem with lens assy. and to fix this problem you have to repair
or replace the lens assy.
so pls take it to the Fuji shop.
