Sounds like the shutter is sticking. This could be due to damage or just need cleaning. This probably means that you need to get the camera professionally serviced/fixed as shutters are extremely delicate.

With the power off, hold the camera in your palm and smack the front of the camera on your leg or arm. You might have to smack it a few time to get it to work. It has to do with the camera CDD lense (shuttle) being stuck. By smacking it around, it will free up the lense. Being extra gentle with it though. It worked for me. Hope this help.

The "ERR" code usually refers to an aperture problem. For example, if a lens with an aperture ring (Sigma is a favourite) used for earlier cameras is used, the aperture has to be set to its smallest (usually f/22 or "A" for automatic).

As you are using an 18-200, I assume it's the Nikkor VR. Callinto a camera store and ask them to check with a different lens. It may be the VR lens is faulty.

My Nikon Coolpix S3300 lens will only open half way then it closes and turns off. how can I open it


Hi
I only really know of 2 reasons for this to happen.
The first is rather obvious and is that the battery does not have enough power left to operate the camera properly, and it therefore automatically shuts down. This happened on 3 different cameras I've had if the batteries were wearing out.
The second and rather more difficult to solve is that something is obstructing the lens from fully opening, dust, dirt, etc in the sliding mechanism. If the motor won't go past whatever point is causing it to stick, then the camera will shut down automatically. The only thing I can suggest is a careful and thorough cleaning of the slider mechanism. It may be possible to remove the battery cover whilst the lens is partially extended, which would allow part of the mechanism to be cleaned.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

I have purchased a nikon coolpix L22 digital camera 6 months back but now adays shutter of the camera not closed during power off of the camera.


The lens dust cover (sometimes called the shutter) can stick sometimes due to residue or sticky
substances. Sometimes it can be tweaked with an alcohol swab gently rubbing
the dust cover to lubricate it to clean off the residue.

Does this fault happen only with that lens? Also, you're wrong about the shutter: it appears you're mistaking the shutter assembly for the lens diaphragm (also known as the "iris").

Older lenses often have sticky diaphragms, usually due to oil migrating onto the individual blades and sticking them together. A sticking diaphragm can interfere with the shutter operation on some SLR's.

Fixing a sticky iris is usually a professional job, but if you're careful then with a simple non-autofocus lens like yours it's often possible to do on a DIY basis but will be very fiddly. The object is to get to the iris blades and to then thoroughly clean them. They're Teflon coated so should slide over each other without lubrication, but their pivots normally need the tiniest bit of lubrication. If you try and fail then you've lost nothing as the lens was effectively scrap anyway and there are plenty of cheap/free replacements around.

The shutters on my Fujifilm E900 wont open or close properly.


Hi,
Do you mean the lens cover on the end of the lens Is not opening properly, or the shutter inside the lens?

My screen is black or blank


I think you mean your automatic lens cover opens. A stuck shutter is a common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see the following for further info and a simple fix that may help:

Shutter having trouble opening and closing.


Hey SleepyFairy,
What it sounds like is that something sticky has gotten into the lens cover mechanism, and the only way to fix that is to have it repaired. If this camera is less that a year old it is most likely still covered under manufacturers warranty, and you should have it looked at by an authorized service technician to get it fixed.

Sincerely,
Allan
