    my rebel is doing the same thing. I just got it for christmas and the shutter is stuck and I can't take any pictures. I got it opened by pretending to clean the lens but now after every picture it just goes back to being stuck. Battery is fine, tried a few, all new and all charged. Haven't even pressed anything special. Brand new...what the?

Shutters on the lens won't fully open

Stuck automatic lens covers are fairly. But usually it's very easy to fix, without even opening the camera. See this link for troubleshooting steps for this problem.

Nikon FG. Replaced 3V battery. On the M90 setting the film advances OK. On 'program' or other settings it will only advance once and after shutter fires it will not advance until put on...

M90 is a battery independent setting - it requires no battery power to function. If it won't advance until put on M90 from other settings, then either you're not allowing for proper exposure, have the settings incorrectly set (film speed, etc), or you have shutter issues. The shutter is electronically controlled on all settings except M90. In the auto setting, your lense MUST be set to the smallest aperture (biggest number). On any other setting, you can use it however you'd like. I'd suggest unloading any film, setting the shutter speed dial to 1/125 or so, opening the back and looking thru and firing the shutter. If it's not snapping open and immediately closed, theres an issue and you need to consult a repair technician either locally, through Nikon, or through KEH Camera online.

Shutter won;t open

Are you talking about the shutter, or do you really mean the automatic lens cover ? Take a look at this first to see if this is what you meant. Make sure you read the comments also for additional tips. I don't think it will be necessary to open it up to fix it. Stick with the easy tips, they should work, especially if this is happening occassionally:

I push on the shutter button and nothing happens!

Have you tried to put new batteries in it sometimes when they start to die then not all of the functions will work and also cheap batteries can be brand new but not strong enough to run the functions

Shutter button causes camera to turn off

It is usually a battery strength issue. Try this, set the flash to "no flash" mode and try to take a shot. If it works with the flash set to "off", the batteries are probably not strong enough to power up the flash and shoot. If that doesn't work, try really, really GOOD batteries. Most of my customers with this problem solve the issue with Energizer Lithium AA batteries. We sell lots of these batteries, and it usually solves the problem.

Shutter problem with a sony dsc-w30 camara

Make sure the battery is strong and not failing you and that the extending lens cover parts are clean. You may have gotten something in there.

Zoom lens

Oh I'd love to be able to see this one. OH well. What batteries are you using? If they are ordinary alkaline, then you should get a set of NiMH rechargable batteries. (As strong as you can find) If the problem continues, taale the camera into Nikon and send your friend the bill.
