Any small distortion to the case will jam the dust shutter mechanism, as will dislodged dust and dirt. Remove the battery and carefuly remove the case screws. DO NOT LOSE. Lift off the front cover, take care with the top control knob and on/off switch as there are dust shields that may tear. This reveals the dust cover mechanism on the front of the camera. Dust off with an air-duster or soft spotlessly clean (new) paintbrush. Check a narrow ribbon cable is plugged-in at the front as this powers the cover motor. Gently guide the case around the top rotary control & on-off switch and line-up the circuit board beneath the rotary switch. Do not force anything together. Lightly re-assemble without screws and insert the battery - you cannot make this test without the cover-on as the case supports the switches needed to control the camera. Check that the cover operates correctly or is jamming on the case cover at the front where the shutter moves. If all OK replace the screws, else gently straighten the case with your fingers. This has happened several times to mine and cleaning it/lightly straightening the case cover always make it work again.

Why does my Shutter locks when taking picture


Sir,
This is a common fault in such models. carefully open the back cover and bottom of your camera thus you can find the shutter opening gears and related parts. with the help of a needle apply some silicon grease on this gears let it free by rotating the parts then fix the covers it will work properly, check the condition of the battery in some cases weakness of the battery also cause this
thanks raufkdv@hotmail.com

How to release a stuck sutter on canon 400d


Wow, four days ago.

I would think that the camera has dropped the shutter by now.

There is a mode in the camera that holds the mirror up out of the way for sensor cleaning but this is defaulted as soon as the power is shut off and then turned back on again.

Or the camera was set in manual mode "Bulb" and is waiting for the next command from the photographer to "drop" the shutter "takes a second press of the shutter button.

The lens may be loose (unlocked) and giving a bad command to the camera.

The Canon 40D has a shutter capable of 60,000 actuation so if you are close to this I'd say the shutter has been shot out of it.

Also sometimes the shutter release button sticks and gives the feeling or appearance of a stuck shutter.

Shutter switch also known as a release button have been an issue sometimes where dirt and oil from a person hands get down into the button.

To release shut the camera off, take the battery out, remove and reinstall the lens, shift the taking mode to "P" program or full automatic green box.

When i turn on the camera the shutter closes, when I turn it off, the shutter opens


I dropped the camera and now the shutter opens when turning off & closes when I open the camera. But when it is open, the shutter will open a bit making it impossible to take pictures. What should I do or where do I take it for repairs?
Tks, Ruth

LCD monitor is 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, 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.

Lines on screen and photos, too bright photos outside


Lines across your pictures or pictures too bright are due to the shutter not closing correctly or at all.
to check this- turn camera on, turn off flash, turn camera around and look into the lens. Adjust the zoom so that the shutter and internal lens comes up to the end of the lens and whatch as you take a picture. You should see the shutter close completely over the lens. If it doesn't move or does not close over completely then there is your problem.
If camera was dropped it could have jammed the shutter open or obstructed it in some way from closing completely.
camera will require repair/ service.
You may have some luck if you power up and down your camera numerous times before taking a picture. The action of the lens opening and closing may free the shutter.

My lcd screen is blank but the camera acts like it is taking a picture. Cannon PowerShot S3 IS


Had the same problem with my S3 is and couldnt find any help other than to junk it and buy another camera. WAY too expensive to repair (out of warranty)
I found a post and this worked for me...just fixed it about an hour ago. Mine would show a blank screen on the LCD nothing thru the view finder other than the menu screen. Found out the shutter was stuck and that seems to be a common issue with these cameras. This is how I fixed mine.
1. set the shutter speed to the longest setting you can. I put mine on the TV setting.

2. close the flash and set turn off all of the functions you can to conserve the batteries.

3. take a picture and within 5 seconds open the battery door. Then close it back and repeat. Your trying to interrupt the shutter reset process thereby "unsticking" the stuck shutter.

4. If this fails then try LIGHTLY tapping the camera against a piece of wood, again to unstick the shutter.

Sounds like a bad idea but considering I had tossed my camera in a drawer and already replaced it, I didnt really have much to lose. I was pleasantly suprised to see that after about 15 resets (steps 1-3) and a couple of light taps, the camera is working good as new again.

Good luck, hope it works out for you!

Shutter opened but won't close


Switching off the camera from the main ON/OFF swit5ch should close the shutter. If it doesn;t, try removing the battery or the CF card. It is possible to manually increase the shutter speed even in bright sunny conditions.
