Digimax i6 pmp SHUTTER problems!!!

Hi, I didnt use my digimax i6 for a while and when I tried, it opened the shutter and after this the cam close and the shutter kept opened. I still can see my taken pics and videos but when I press the REcord/take pics buttons, I can see in the screen but then it goes black again. When I press the Power button, I can hear the shutter trying to open but it cant. Someone knows how to fix this??? cause I need it fast

    I resolved the problem, I opened a little the cam on the side, I put a slim knife in the hole with the lens, trying to touch the shutter and the cam opened, and the shutter close!

    Problems Solve and its the best solution for people wich shutter problems, its really easy opening the cam just a little bit

    I have a slightly different problem, which is: My protective lens cover
    (shutter in this thread) refuse to open when the camera is turned on.
    After a while the camera turns off automatically. All other functions
    such as the MP3, PMP and image viewing works perfectly fine.

    Would opening it up like the solution below work?

Solution worked flawlessly. 8 little screws removed (4 on the botton on the side - two on each side of the power charger interface assembly; 2 holding the verticle plastic covering on the side of the camera, and two additional screws underdeath the plastic covering just removed) was all that was needed to create enough separation in the unit to free the protective cover for the lense. The protective cover for the lense now opens and closes as it should when power is enabled/disabled. Thanks for the post, really paid off.

Congratulations on fixing the problem! However I just wanted to let you and everyone else who reads this solution know that the part which failed on your camera is not actually the shutter. The shutter is deep inside the lens assembly right next to the image sensor. What you were dealing with was simply a protective cover for the lens. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

When you record something, you can't adjust the volume of the microphone. You should move either closer to or farther away from your subject.

Shutter wont close

Try setting the shutter to B and see if you can trip the shutter. If no go then it has mechanical problem. If it works on B but not on other shutter speeds, you have electronic problems.
