Question about Fuji FinePix A800 Digital Camera
Hi there Scotty
This problem is one of two things.
Can you see the shutter close and open? If not , this is your problem.
No fix that can be done at home unfortunately...the only option is to smack the camera a few times (aaah , the good old fashioned smack it technique) and hope that the shutter releases from what ever has got it stuck. Normally it's some grease from the lens mechanism that has creaped onto the shutter sticking it closed.
If this is not the problem , the only thing left is the ccd. Now normally a ccd failure is accompanied by distorted images so the failure in your case may be that the cable connecting the ccd to the main circuit of the camera came loose.
This normally happens on older camera's because the glue used to attach the cable becomes old and hard and eventually cracks loose the connector. A completely dead CCD can also give the symptoms you are experiencing.
If you need to get these problems repaired , think again as it may well cost you more than the camera itself.
If I had to quote you , I'd say :

Is this the first time you have encountered the problem? Also, how long have you had this camera? Do you recall anything which could have caused the issue?
Looking forward to your response.
