I take it you mean the the lens cover? If you can get a vacuum nozzle in one hand and gentle offer the camera to it to see if it sucks anything out. Don't use an air blast that could push any muck further in

My Nikon L35 AF's shutter button won't pop back up when I press it down.

Hi Broderick,
You have some (dirt/ dust/ sand) clogged around the clearance between the shutter button and the camera body. If you are a DIY type of person, you can check and clean that dirt, other wise take it to a repair shop for proper cleaning.

My Nikon D3200 says shutter error can I fix this issue myself?

did you charge your battery full ? if the battery is not charged enough, it will not drive the shutter opener motor perfectly, and if any type of dirt or friction on the shutter drive gears this will happen, please check the shutter movement by removing the lens.

Why won't the shutter on my Nikon coolpix won't open?

hi do you mean the shutter? or the lens cover in front of the lens? if you mean the two leaves that separate when the lens comes out it is probably a lens issue or a spring not working correctly in the front cap.

Nikon Coolpix 5900/4 GB Kingston SD Card

The 5900 uses SD cards. The 4GB card you have is actually an SDHC card and will not work in the 5900. You'll have to stay with cards 2GB and smaller.

Won't turn on. My Nikon Coolpix 5900 is 4 yr old. Battery is good. When I press the on/off button, the orange/red light on the front stays on permanently and the shutter fails to open.

This is caused by the camera not charging the flash capacitor inside thus it will not power the rest of the camera. You going to need to take it in to a local shop and have them look at it. This is something a end users cannot just open up and do.

Thanks and please do leave a postive rating and feedback

D80 shutter issue

Your shutter will stick if it gets dirty or dust gets in the camera, a reputable camera shop can inspect the shutter, the sensor for dust & dirt and can clean it for you. If the battery is low while shooting the shutter can also stick on longer exposures.
