Shutters closing while running

The shutters barely open on low speed.. They open most of the time on high speed but after awhile they close even though the fan seems to still be running. Thanks

The shutters should be gravity closed, which means they are counter weighted just enough to close with no air flow...  when the fan starts, it will create a slight pressure differential across the shutters - when that pressure overcomes the counter weight, the shutters should open...  I assume you open windows and/or doors when the fan runs...
I would check for the following items: a) (unlikely) check to see if the counter weight is adjustable, if so, it may be slipping and needs reset.. I think this is unlikely as I think most shutters do not have adjustable counter weights -- check last)
b) check your attic vents to the outside -- the air being blown into the attic must escape to the outside world, otherwise it will build up pressure and the airflow will drop or stop altogether -- this sounds like what is occurring, at slow speeds, there is insufficient airflow to open the dampers, at high speeds, they open long enough for the pressure to build up and then they close as the air flow diminishes
c)  have you replaced windows, caulked up windows, made any modifications to reduce the flow of air into the living areas -- air must enter the house just as air must leave the attic (assumes you don't open windows or doors)
d)  if you have a fireplace, check to make sure some animal or other hasn't plugged up the chimney -- if the house is tight, the attic fan will pull air from the chimney unless it is blocked
hope this helps...

All shutters do have a certain tolerance. Because you don't say anything about the real time the shutter is open, It is impossible to tell what camera has a "correct" shutter time. Or if they both are of. I used to calibrate my camera's, because most of the time the next time is exact twice or half of the former time on the dial. Even with the band new cameras in the past, I shot one or two rolls, to check if my settings were correct. Never had any trouble with shutter times, because I never checked how long the were open.

COOLANT IN PCM


With growing fuel costs and problems of global warming that are being faced by our planet, automotive industry is trying its best to create cars and engines that are more fuel efficient. In a recent news release Chevrolet unveiled the working of The Air Shutter system which is going to be used in the much awaited Chevrolet Cruze Eco model giving it a decently good fuel economy of 40MPG or 17 kmpl.

Air Shutter System Working Greg Fadler, aerodynamics engineering group manager at Chevrolet and his team developed The Air Shutter system to make 2011 Chevrolet Cruze Eco one of the most fuel efficient small cars on the market achieving almost hybrid like fuel economy without the Hybrid cost and maintenance. This was achieved by using commonly used techniques of reducing overall weight and ride height to provide it the aerodynamic benefit. chevrolet+cruze+eco+air+shutter.gif
The real innovation is the front grill which has an automatic shutter system that senses wind flow and temperature conditions with sensors which, are connected to small electric motors that open and close the shutter as and when needed. When the car is moving at slow speed (city driving) the shutters open to provide maximum air flow to the engine for cooling thus, reducing radiator power consumption. The shutter remain closed during high speeds (highway driving), providing an increase in half a mile per gallon in combined city and highway driving.
The system however doesn't compromise with engine cooling in anyway. The system in fact helps to provide maximum cooing in the worst of conditions with the advantage of increased fuel economy.

Canon Powershot A510 - lens covers stuck


A stuck lens cover is a fairly common problem, but it is normally easy to fix. A single grain of sand jamming the cover mechanism is normally the culprit, and you want to try to dislodge it. There are many non-invasive techniques that people have come up with to accomplish this. Some may be seen on this blog article. You can also open the lens barrel up to fix the covers, but only as a very last resort. The article also gives examples for this type of procedure.

My son pulled out one of the shutters that opens and closes over the lens. The shutters no longer open all the way. The camera is brand new. How can I fix the rest of the shutters? Should I pull them...


You can pull off the other one if you want. To put it back in your basically going to have to take apart the camera. The "Shutters" on the outside is nothing more but to protect the lens will its in the camera. The actual shutter is inside the lens that open and closes very quickly when you take a picture.

Think of it this way, the shutter in the lens opens up to let in light that shows the image to the sensor behind the lens. Then it closes to "finish" capturing the light".

The "shutters" or "doors" on the outside do not move once you take a picture. They only close once the lens retract. (When the camera is turned off or idles)

Hope this has been helpful.

Shutter will not open/close (Disengaged from motor - "flopping" loose)


Well, replacement of the shutter unit (lens barrier)instead of the repair seems more realistic... Please contact your nearest Sony Service for the price estimate. If you need more info please advice. Arpi
