Question about Canon Cameras
I've come across this situation, where the aperture stays closed. The lens cover opens, but the shutter is in the closed position preventing light from hitting the sensor element. The problem was the flexible circuit board (ribbon like cable) entering into the lens assembly. The camera has to be dismantled so that the lens assembly can be freed, then opened. There are two magnetic solenoids that operate the shutter. The fault was that like repeadedly bending a metal rod, it eventiually weakens and breaks. This happened to the ribbon cable. I replaced it with very fine wire, 4 strands in all. Came back good as new once reassembled.
