Shutter on iPhone camera wont open

I go into the camera app and all I get is the picture of a shutter and the bar at the bottom. The only part of the screen which responds to me touching it is the button in the bottom left which goes to saved pictures. This is with OS 3.0 however a similar thing hapened with OS 2.2.1, the shutter opened but just to a black background and all the pictures came out black. The phone is a 1st gen iPhone and so is quite old so I am wondering if it might be a hardware and not a software problem. Any thoughts? Thanks

Do a hard reset. If you don't have firmware 3.0, get that too.

SOURCE: iphone got wet. camera shutter is stuck closed

you might have a lot of corrosion inside your phone.

try to open it up and clean it very well with alcohol.

the main camera does not work probably because of corrosion on its connector to the main board.

see the picture I took a few days ago:

This is an internal problem with your camera phone. Send back to carrier or Apple if under warranty or find authorized repair in phone book.

there is a hardware issue. Apple should give you a replacement. If you're out warranty, you can try to open it and camera module. If that fails you need a new logic board. You can get the part on Ebay or at iPhone Repair and there is a free guide that shows you how to open a kindle and install parts at iPad Repair Guide.

I have had the same problem. I backed up all photos/videos from the phone and then deleted them, then rebooted the phone (off/on). The camera functioned after that. Then I restored the photos to the phone.

I have a Minolta XG-A camera, and i can take a picture but the shutter is stuck?


My shutter does that when there is low light, or just slow shutter speed. You could try changing those settings, otherwise, last time mine got stuck, I loosened a screw on the bottom right under the shutter release button and the shutter just snapped back into its place.

Camera shutter wont open iphone 3g


If the camera shutter won't open in the Camera app, it could be a hardware or software issue.
Turning the iPhone off then back on should resolve the issue. If not, a Restore in iTunes would help.
If neither of these help, it could be the camera's connection inside of the iPhone. You could set up a Genius Bar appointment at your local Apple Store.

My iphone 4 camera has a frozen shutter problem


This shutter problem could possibly a cause of something that has corrupted the software. For a quick fix try the following: Double tap the home button. Then hold in any of the icons that have come up in the multitasking section at the bottom of the screen. Once the x buttons appear you need to kill the camera app. If this doesn't solve your problem and software restore or update via iTunes should resolve your issue.

Camera lens wont open on iphone 4


Hi Tim,
Are you talking about the built-in Camera app? The camera (hardware) doesn't really have a shutter.

Please try using some other Camera app from the AppStore or try restoring to the latest firmware.

Let me know how it goes.

Please rate this solution if it helps you.
