Have to know which shutter. If it is the shutter on the end of the lens, then more than likely the end cap is bent, and will jam the shutter. this may be able to be fixed by gently prying up on the bent area , also protect the lens cap with a small piece of aluminum or something similar as you pry gently up ward with a small flat screwdriver. Be very cautious on this, it may do a lot of damage in a split second....so be very careful...if you cannot do it, then someone who is good at repairs of small things may be able to help you.
Notice that you could damage the camera to not be able to be used at all.. so just take note.

Screen is black and pictures come out black


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

Shutter appears to be stuck closed.


Theirs oil on the shutter blades causing it to stay closed, Thats why you can't see though the lens or the viewfinder also, This comes from the grease from the zoom assy, It's a major job to fix it, Has to be fixed by a repair shop

http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2009/05/simple-fix-for-stuck-shutter.html

Now the A430 is not capable of taking 15 second exposures as recommended for the fix. Instead try setting the camera to manual mode, turn off the flash, got to a darkened room, and take a picture. Open the battery door while the red and yellow light are flashing. Repeat as the fix recommends, but please note that there may be only a small hope that this will work as the shutter may be stuck in the open position. This is harder to get unstuck than a closed shutter.

If the above doesn't work, consider attempting Fix 5a listed on the web page. There is some risk of damaging your camera with this fix, that's why I hesitate to recommend it until last.

Sensor may have something on it....or your f/ may be off. or if you use flash it is probably not on High Flash Sync. Just ask your local photographer, because I can't help unless I actually see it.

D70 Shutter Stuck


I'm afraid the camera has suffered "shutter death". After a certain number of clicks (usually 30.000-70.000, but it could be as little as 5000 or as much as 150.000), the shutter just gives up the ghost. It's fixable, but expensive.
