    I have the -exact- same problem with my eos rebel G11, have had it for a couple years and it has only been used maybe 3 times, as the batteries are lithium ion batteries I always take them out when the camera is not in use to protect the camera and the longevity of the battery. I took the camera on a recent vacation to yellowstone, and have had this exact problem, the camera powers on, shows a full charge, even winds the film that you put in, but when you take a picture the shutter closes, the battery flashes low and turns off. If you wind the film manually, the camera will power back on and show a full charge again. I'm assuming because the exposure did not complete that my entire roll of film is ruined, I have emailed canon support on this issue and will post a response if a helpful one comes along.

I am having a similar problem with my eos 100QD.
shutter opens, then stays open until I depress the shutter switch again.
Sometimes about half my photos are lost on a roll, but the other photos are fine (as would be expected from how the film is wound). This problem looks like it's caused by the shutter mechanism failing, a common problem with older camera and one that is often more expensive to repair than it is to replace the body.

I have a hasselblad 503cx. when i hit the shutter button, the back part of the lens opens (where the film is) but the lens shutter is closed. when i let go, the lens opens and the back closes.


The proper order of exposure should be:

Curtain opens/Lense stops down (unless wide open)
Lense shutter closes
When releasing button, curtain closes
When winding, lense shutter opens

If this isn't what's happening, something is wrong. There is only a simple mechanical screw connection between body and lense, so it'd have to be an issue with the gears in the body.

Hi, I would like to take a timed exposer, maybe for as long as five minutes......Thanks


In manual exposure mode, set the shutter speed to bulb. This is the next slower shutter speed past thirty seconds. The bulb setting will keep the shutter open as long as you keep the shutter button pressed.

It's easier if you have a remote control. With the ML-L3 wireless remote, you can press the button once to open the shutter and again to close it. Most wired remotes have a lock so you can lock the shutter open until you want to close it.

FILM ADVANCE/SHUTTER STUCK


Start simple and go from there.

I don't know if you have film in the camera so I'll read the following and choose what works for you.

I will assume the battery is working if applicable.

As stupid as this sounds press the shutter release button. If the shutter is cocked it will hold the advance. I've had people come in with this problem.

Not it?

If the film rewind has been pressed in it will disengage the film advance and stop the shutter mechanism as a result. Open the camera and close the back again resets the release.

If there is film in the camera remove it.

It there are important photos on the film and your rewind is not working use a coat to make a light proof black box. Just turn the sleeves inside out and put the camera in the coat. Wrap it so as it is closed to light. Open the camera remove the film and roll the film back in by hand.

OK so now we have a camera open with no film in it.

Open the back and look just below the shutter. On one side will be a very small "lever". This tells the camera that the film has been advanced and the shutter is cocked. Gently move the lever to the right. It should click. Now try pressing the shutter release.
Note that without film in the camera some cameras will not advance the shutter.

It should clear the problem.

If not something physical in jamming.

The film advance system could be jamming. On the side the film advance is on there will be a plastic "gear" inside the camera. Try moving by hand it should turn. You can reset the shutter this way.

Give this a try.

Hope this is helpful, if it gives you some direction please rate this answer.

Thanks

Liftmaster pro 1/2 hp wont shut in one button press


You have a door sensor problem. Either your main light bulb is burned out or you don't have one in your opener. The clicking sound you hear is the relay for the light. Both of the door sensors should have a small light that is lit. Tweak them until they are.

Help with "B" setting


You press the shutter once and that opens the shutter (you do your light painting) then you press the shutter a second time to close the shutter.

When you press the shutter the first time and look in the view finder it will be dark . this is because the mirror has locked its self up while doing the exposure (this is normal) Once you click the shutter a second time the mirror will flop down and you will be able to see threw the viewfinder again.

Rebel 2000 went retarded


I got a Rebel 2000 off ebay, and it had the same problem. The Shutter wouldn't open, it showed dead batteries, and the mirror hung until I pressed the shutter button or changed modes.
After a good deal of surfing, I found that the most likely reason was a sticky/oily shutter
(http://photonotes.org/articles/oily-shutter/).
Since I didn't have much $$$ invested in the camera, I tried cleaning the shutter curtain with Qtips and alcohol. After a little cleaning, the shutter started to move. After a lot of cleaning, the shutter moves freely. I ran a roll of film through it, and it seems to be working just fine now.

Damaged Photos


This sounds like the second shutter curtain is not closing completely - it's not reaching the right hand side of the shutter opening; or it's sticking & thus taking a long time to close so the part of the frame behind that area gets massively overexposed. You can check this by firing the shutter with no film in the camera and the back open. If I'm right, I'm afraid it's a repair shop job - unless you can see a hair or something like it caught up in the shutter. If so, you might just be able to remove it (all of it!) with tweezers.

D50 won't take a picture!


I was having the same problem.. And since I could not afford to take it to the shop, I tried everything I could think of...
Then I fixed it!!
It seems that the slide door behind the shutter was stuck for some reason... If you remove the lens.. (make sure the camera is in manual mode)... snap a shot so the shutter is up.. then gently slide the panel in the back down....
Once I did that.. the camera was working again.... Hope this easy solution works for you guys....
