Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX8 Digital Camera
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.
