Do you really mean the shutter? Or do you mean the lens barrier? The lens barrier opens in front of the lens when you go to take a photo.

Assuming it is the lens barrier which is stuck open, the cause is usually dust/grit. A series of "puffs" with a large bulbed blower, e.g.a Giotto, should help clear it.

If it's been caused by liquid ("coke" is a favourite!) then the sugar is holding it open. A little (very little) ethyl alcohol dropped on the lens and allowed to percolate around the barrier area should sort it.

If it is the shutter you mean, then that is a workshop job.

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.

Shutter wont close


Try setting the shutter to B and see if you can trip the shutter. If no go then it has mechanical problem. If it works on B but not on other shutter speeds, you have electronic problems.

Shutter stays closed on bronica 645 etr medium format


Have the electronic shutter checked by a repair shop. Sounds like your Seiko electronic shutter has died or there's a short somewhere between shutter and lens. Hope this helps.

Memory card shutter wont close


Try closing it with the card removed.
If it will will not close shut, this suggests a piece of plastic has broken off.
The quick fix is gaffer tape it shut.
Indeed it is likely the only fix unless the camera is still under warranty, whereupon it will be replaced

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.
