Probably not worthing fixing unless you can not do without it. Fix this kind of problem requires a deep overhaul of the body so it is a matter of cost of manpower. You'd better sell it as is and buy a similar one, these days film cameras are very cheap even for the top models.

Why does my Cannon 600D Shutter stays open and doesn't work


maybee you are shooting the camera at very low shutter speed try to check the shutter speed first . if this does not resolve the problem you may need to drop the camera and the nearest service center and have you curtain checked . you might have reached the maximum shutter count and this needs replacment

The shutter stays open too long on the Manual setting


At all shutter speeds? Does it appear consistent? Does the shutter stay open more or less the same amount of time even if you change the shutter speed?

Shutter button does not work after camera was dropped.


You dropped it and that is the problem, it is junk. Repair cost will exceed price of good camera.

I can't find a way to change the shutter speed on my Kodak M893Is and I've looked in the menu. Help?


The only change you can make in the shutter speed is to choose how long you want the shutter to stay open for long time exposures. If you want to make changes to things like shutter, aperture, etc. you need a much more expensive camera or even a DSLR.

Shutter stays open-battery sign flashes but they are full..


This could be one of a number of problems, but first check the battery contacts are clean. These cameras rely on an elecrtic motor to drive the mirror and prime the shutter. The extra current drawn may cause the voltage to drop if the battery contacts are dirty.

Another possibility is a shutter fault, either the shutter has a sticky deposit or there is an electrical problem. Last time I had one like this I found a crack in the solder connection to the shutter.

Putting a new battery meants the camera will reset to a default setting. This means the shutter will be instructed to fire and the mirror return to it's initial position.

Fuji digital camera


I think I've solved the same problem on a Finepix A350. My shutter has been sticking for months now on powerup. I brushed all round the periphery of the shutter with a perfectly clean, small, camel hair brush and now it operates perfectly! So maybe the answer is to keep a new brush specially for this. Hope this works for you! I certainly would not try dropping the camera as someone suggested.

I dropped my camera and now the pictures are funny...


What you describe is the symptom of a stuck shutter. The shutter is inside the lens and must close in order for the image sensor to properly record the image. Yours is stuck open, and that is why you see the lines across your images. When a stuck shutter results from an impact it usually requires full disassembly and manual re-setting of the delicate shutter blades. This problem would require professional repair. Unfortunately damage from an impact is not covered by your factory warranty. You can find good repair services on the internet who can service your camera. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
