Sometimes film jamming in the fjilm can cause the shutter to be very difficult to ****. I had an ME years ago and totally loved it.
Using a little, but NOT a lot more force may help you to complete the cocking action. Other than that I would remove the film and blow out the mechanism with compressed air. Don't know if this will definitely solve the issue. But hopefully it will.
Best Regards, Mark

Why would my Auto focus mirror not folding up completely.


The mirror is designed to fully swing from top to bottom with out any interference unless something was jammed inside. If you are shooting with the lens off and watching the mirror only partially open something is jammed and needs repair. To test this put the camera in Manual mode ( M on the mode selector dial) Set the shutter speed to 1/4 of a second and press the shutter button. Having a slow shutter will allow you to see if it is fully opening and closing.
If you are making this assumption based on seeing images that have only a portion of the frame exposed, then the most likely scenario is you are taking pictures with the flash on at a shutter speed greater than 1/250 of a second. This causes the flash to fire before the shutter is fully open and therefore only part of the frame is exposed. Google "Shutter Sync Speed".
Good Luck

Shutter jammed


The shutter assembly must be replaced then. But your camera is near-worthless and the repair is not a DIY option, so it's uneconomic to do so.

You can get a complete replacement camera for nothing on FreeCycle or Freegle, or very cheaply on auction websites. My last two N75's and an N8008 (a.k.a. F-801) came to me as perfect near unused and boxed examples from FreeCycle.

The magnetic shutter motor is worn out more than likely. A tech is needed to preform any repairs I would say

Shutter button jammed halfway down Ixus 55


If it is a dislocation of the switch then its a minor fault .... open the screws and try to disassemble the top and refit the shutter button ... its should work properly ... be carefull while opening the camera so that you dont damage the camera.....

Shutter on k100d


Hi,
Maybe you can try sensor cleaning mode;
Go to Menu>Set-up>Sensor cleaning, press right than choose "Mirror Up", wait a moment than power off the camera. Maybe this can help.
Regards.
