Question about Cameras
A stuck shutter is common failure mode for digital cameras. Thesymptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD imagesensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuckclosed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especiallywhen taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). Not sure what causes thisissue, but some say it's heat, others say it's dust.
But anyways, to confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any modeother than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blindyourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take apicture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as theshutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely havea stuck shutter. If so, please see the following for further info and asimple fix that may help:
