Repairs require the len cap to be remove and the springs to be replaced. And resetted. If you want me to repair it cost is 35.00 plus 8.00 shipping.

I have a Canon PowerShot SD1000 and it turns on, but the screen is blank. It will upload any photos taken (although you can't see what pics you take), but even then you have to click the button on the...


A stuck shutter is another 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, sometimes with lines, 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 this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.
By the way, my wife happens to own a SD1000. Great little camera, but it's prone to stuck shutter every once and a while. Easily fixed each time though by simply opening the battery door while on, and gently flicking the lens barrel a few times. Again, see the link.

I took a picture in the s mode or any mode messing with the shutter speed and when i go to view the picture i just get a black screen.....i am not sure why this is happening....any thoughts?


Proper exposure is a balancing act between the shutter speed and the aperture (the size of the opening in the lens). (There's also the ISO sensitivity, but I'll ignore that for now.) If the shutter is open for a longer time, the lens must be closed down. If the shutter is open for a shorter time, the lens must be opened up wider to allow the same amount of light to reach the sensor.

The Shutter priority mode attempts to adjust the aperture to give the proper exposure for the shutter speed you've selected. The lens has physical limits as to how wide the opening can be. If the shutter speed is too fast, the lens will only open as far as it can go but that may not be enough. In this case the camera will display "Lo" in the viewfinder to warn you but will go ahead and take the picture anyway. If the shutter speed is too fast then you won't get enough light through the lens and you'll end up with a dark or black picture.

Try reducing the shutter speed (leaving it open for a longer time), like 1/30 of a second instead of 1/125 of a second. If the shutter is open too long, you run the risk of camera motion. You can also increase the ISO setting, making the sensor more sensitive to light. This increases digital noise, which looks somewhat like film grain. You can also try adding more light, perhaps by using the flash, if the subject isn't too far from the camera.

Shutter won't open/blaack when you look through lens


Your shutter may be stuck open... this will give the appearance of the shutter not opening as well as no image when you look through the viewfinder.

Open the back of the camera, as if you were replacing the film, and look to see if the shutter is open. If it is, you can probably see light coming through the lens when looking from the back of the camera.

If this is the case, you will need to find out why the shutter is stuck open.

Some cameras use a battery to activate the shutter, some cameras have a "bulb" setting that keeps the shutter open for long exposures.

Whatever you do, do NOT force the shutter... I might jiggle it a little bit to see if it will close, but I wouldn't recommend more than a slight jiggle.

While you have camera open, inspect the mirror. If the shutter is closed but the mirror is stuck "up" (to allow light to reach the shutter/firm), there is a chance that you would not be able to activate the shutter.

I have the canon sx100 is, it dropped and now the shutter eye won't open


If only the shutter eye is not opening but the lens is extending properly, then you will need to remove the fron shutter frame and review it.

It may be that one (or both) springs that open the lens protector are loose, or the plastic tab that allows to open/close the lens protector is broken.

If the lens does not extend when the camera is powered on, then lens assembly is damaged.

Unfortunately, such Canon SX100 (and the SX110 too) has a very fragile lens assembly, and it's damaged very easily. Most of the times the internal gears, the plastic post guides and the motor are damaged at the same time, so the only solutio is to replace the whole lens assembly.

The lens replacement requires a qualified camera repair technician, unless you want to try in repair it yourself, which requires tools (scredrivers, soldering iron, desoldering tool, magnifier glass with light, etc).

Best regards,

Shutter won;t open


Are you talking about the shutter, or do you really mean the automatic lens cover ? Take a look at this first to see if this is what you meant. Make sure you read the comments also for additional tips. I don't think it will be necessary to open it up to fix it. Stick with the easy tips, they should work, especially if this is happening occassionally:

Lens shutter does not open while lens pops out using new batteries


What you are seeing is not the shutter but a lens protector. I think the camear has dirt in that area and it needs to be cleaned out. Do this with compressed air.

Shutter


You mean the lens protector doors, not the camera shutter. This seems to be a problem on this camera. Aparently you bumped it against something or dropped it. The only way I know of to fix this is to take it apart and set the arm of the spring again into the side as it should be. You cant do it with out takeing it apart.
