IPhone 3Gs A1303 camera not working! The shutter is not opening, before it use to work but not workin now..

For starters. There's no actual "shutter" on the camera. That's just an on screen animation.
You might need to just restore/update your phone through iTunes to fix the software issues.

Camera shutter wont open iphone 3g

If the camera shutter won't open in the Camera app, it could be a hardware or software issue.
Turning the iPhone off then back on should resolve the issue. If not, a Restore in iTunes would help.
If neither of these help, it could be the camera's connection inside of the iPhone. You could set up a Genius Bar appointment at your local Apple Store.

I managed to save most of the data on my iPhone 3G after it fell down the loo... but the camera shutter doesn't want to open now and the keylock / on / off button at the top right hand corner no longer...

Those buttons are on one cable ribbon, and if one goes they all tend to go.
Dont worry, all is not lost, I had mine fixed at local mobile repair shop for £15. If you go in they should know the exact problem.

My iphone's camera won't work. It stays on shutter screen. It won't freeze or anything that

Try resetting the phone by pressing both the Sleep/Wake Button and the Home Button simultaneously after which the phone restarts with the apple logo.

Iphone got wet. camera shutter is stuck closed

you might have a lot of corrosion inside your phone.

try to open it up and clean it very well with alcohol.

the main camera does not work probably because of corrosion on its connector to the main board.

see the picture I took a few days ago:

Do a hard reset. If you don't have firmware 3.0, get that too.
