Congratulations on fixing the problem! However I just wanted to let you and everyone else who reads this solution know that the part which failed on your camera is not actually the shutter. The shutter is deep inside the lens assembly right next to the image sensor. What you were dealing with was simply a protective cover for the lens. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

Solution worked flawlessly. 8 little screws removed (4 on the botton on the side - two on each side of the power charger interface assembly; 2 holding the verticle plastic covering on the side of the camera, and two additional screws underdeath the plastic covering just removed) was all that was needed to create enough separation in the unit to free the protective cover for the lense. The protective cover for the lense now opens and closes as it should when power is enabled/disabled. Thanks for the post, really paid off.

You have over exposed pictures due to the shutter sticking.
The video is the clue to the problem. It doesn't use the shutter.
Shutter needs to be cleaned. This is no easy task im afraid

My cannon s21s has a blank screen


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, 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 not closing when taking photo


Try to take video or take picture in dark conditions. If video records correctly, then the CCD sensor is broken. Contact HP and ask if they would repair it for free.

Please see similar problem titled "black screen". Welsbar posted a possible solution as a clarification request. It involves switching your picture mode to TV and changing the shutter speed to 15 seconds, depressing the shutter button for 7 seconds, then opening battery enclosure. Repeat as necessary - I did this twice before I started to see anything on the screen. Twice more before photos start to look okay. Don't know yet if this is a lasting solution, but at least now I can start using the camera again and find out!

According to Welsbar, the problem is an internal part (iris?) that gets stuck when camera hasn't been used frequently.

Show only black when trying to take pic/video


This problem is caused by a stuck shutter assembly. Normally the shutter is open which allows light to enter the image sensor and show you the live preview you see on the screen. When you take a picture the shutter closes which allows the image sensor to record what was seen at the exact moment the shutter closed. The shutter is stuck closed, causing the image sensor to always be in the dark. These shutter assemblies are extremely small and delicate. The miniature parts can become jammed with just the slightest bit of oil or contaminant, or the slightest misalignment of components. The problem can sometimes be fixed by gentle tapping of the camera on a solid surface. If you are going to try this be VERY careful, and do not tap the camera on the buttons, lens, or battery door. If this does not solve your problem then the camera is going to have to be taken apart and the shutter cleaned and reset to allow free movement. This repair costs $125 to $145.

Cant see anything when cam on to take pics screen stays black ?


With the power off, hold the camera in your palm and smack the front of the camera on your leg or arm. You might have to smack it a few time to get it to work. It has to do with the camera CDD lense (shuttle) being stuck. By smacking it around, it will free up the lense. Being extra gentle with it though. It worked for me. Hope this help.
