Question about Canon PowerShot A60 Digital Camera
When I turn the camera off the shutter gets stuck and will not fully "collaspe" back in to the camera- any ideas to fix this?
The lens cover of PSA60 opens along with the move of the objective lens. Normally the camera will sound an error beep when the lens does not end to the end position -- the lens cover is also not fully opened. In reverse, the lens will be retracted when the camera is switched off.
The "shutter" (outside lens cover) might have something stuck inside the blades or other mechanical parts that prevents the lens cover fully closed. Try to blow with a clean air (no hot air - because it can damage the electronics or plastics).
Or maybe the blades are probably not flat that may create resistance on the surface. Try to flatten the blades by hands.
Or maybe the mechanical systems need to be calibrated (by Canon service center).
My suggestion, try to exchange/trade-in your PSA60 with the latest model at the Canon center, because I have done it last year (trade-in with PS S5IS).
