Question about Canon Elph LT 260 APS Point and Shoot Camera
Loaded it with new batteries and film, took 3 pics, and now the shutter won't open fully (though it does try, and then closes again.) and the letter H is flasing on my screen? can u help?

What type of batteries did you buy?
For digital cameras, you want to use batteries with high milliamp hour (mah) rating: "2500 mah" if they are rechargeable.
If you bought regular batteries, you want to use good quality. Look for the "e2" or "better for digital equipment" type.
Does the camera have a DC power plug option? Try taking pictures with it plugged in if it does. If it still malfunctions with power right from the wall, then you bought a bad camera.

Probably. That camera has several rubber bumpers and gaskets in the mirror mechanism that have a tendency to turn into sticky gooey sludge causing the levers in the shutter and mirror mechanisms to get sluggish. The only real solution is to completely disassemble the camera to clean out the old goop and replace them with newer neoprene fittings. My suggestion would be to find a replacement body since the repair is probably going to cost between $80 to $90 and you can probebly find a good used body for less than that.

Hello - I figured it out. I had the exact same problem. The shutter failed and it had to be fixed by Canon. Apparently that happens after the shutter fires so many times (like a click-count on a printer). I just got my camera back and it's doing awesome now.

"The battery regulator inside needs to be replaced around $15 from radioshack or you can take it to a camera shop for around $35 bucks. If its still under warrenty Take it in and have it repaired free."

If you opened the bottom you saw the magnet that holds the shutter /mirror mechanism closed- sometimes it and the lever it holds get dirt or corrosion on them and won't hold the lever when you **** the shutter? it can also be the battery is not dead, but not enough voltage to supply enough power to hold lever.
