Question about Canon PowerShot A430 Digital Camera
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, sometimes with lines, 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.
By the way, recommend trying the pencil tapping method described in this article for a stuck "open" shutter.

First check your manual ,reset setup to factory settings,if no result,
See other similar fault,probably the shutter flexible cable is broken as after many lens movements cable breaks ,shutter stays open,replacement is labor extensive,cable is burried in lensblock ,or change whole lensblock.
Technical skill required.
