    It is actually not the shutter, it is the lens shutter. I can hold it open with a toothpick and the rest of the camera will work. I really like this camera but am not going to pay that much to get it fixed when I think I paid 199. for the camera.

Cracked screen doesn't work


a cracked or damaged screen which is called a display panel if even available will cost more than the set did new, it is fatal which is why none of the companies list the part number in the service manual--sorry but if cracked etc time to save up and go buy another set.

LCD screens are extremely fragile and Plasma also to a lesser degree so some stores do offer insurance against this kind of damage.

Flash won't pop up all the way open.


What has happened is a tiny little spring has broken inside or gotten out of position. Rather than try to fix that, get a thin rubberband (with circular, not flat, cross section) of the proper length as determined as follows. When you turn on the camera, select "force flash", and then half-press the shutter button, you'll be able to lift the flash unit with a fingernail under the crack separating it from the rest of the camera. Once open, put your thin rubberband under the black plastic "ridge" at the front of the flash unit; this ridge is just above the glass-enclased flash tube. As you pull the thin rubberband toward the back of the camera, put a half-rotation into it so that the rubberband crosses over it self (makes an X ) halfway back. One of the X-loops is under the ridge. Put the other X-loop around and under the eyeball-viewing protrusion on the back of the camera. If the rubberband is short enough (but not too short), it will have enough stretchy force to hold the flash unit in the fully open ("up") position. If you're lucky, it may also pop it open when the flash is called for. If not, use your fingernail and just let the thin rubberband hold it in the up position. It works for me.

I cannot take a picture when there sunlight,it started when i took a picture of burning house is the affected my camera


No, the burning house unlikely cause the problem. The A470 is particularly subject to something called a "stuck shutter". 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. Now recommend proceeding directly to Fix 5A listed in the article. If that doesn't help, your camera may have a more serious problem of a broken ribbon cable to the shutter. This seems to be very common for the A4XX series cameras from Canon. Here's some info on the problem.

Panasonic lumix dmc-fz8 shutter button cracked


Hi dear, you can try to order the parts from Panasonic and do it yourself.
I strongly recommend you bring your camera to an authorized repair center to get it fix by them.Because it looks simple to open the camera but it's not.

My protron tv went off and won't come on pltv


Hi, most protons have power supply problems, the power supply is no longer available, but it can either be mailed in to a company called PTS to be rebuilt or you can attempt a component level repair yourself.
Most non technical people can not disassemble and solder there TV.
If you are comfortable soldering, you can open the TV and view the power supply (upper center section) look for any bulging capacitors (cylinder looking small components) sometimes replacing the swollen caps will fix your Proton, If any parts look burnt you will need to send the board to PTS to get it rebuilt , should cost around $100.
PTScorp.com can be found online here or bring the TV to a local servicer that agrees on a flat rate price to fix it
thanks'

Yes there are a lot affected. But if you want to try fixing it yourself (without even opening the camera or touching screwdriver), consider trying the following.

Canon mf 6550 copy no print out its came out empty page


We had the same problem with our mf6550 printing blank pages after we changed the toner cartridge. I called the support desk today and they said it is the shutter. They told me to remove the toner cartridge and then (without a cartridge in) close the door briskly. Then open the door, install the cartridge and again close the door briskly. It worked! He said it may be a permanent fix or it may act up again. He also said I could take it to a service center to have it fixed permanently. The service desk # is 1-800-828-4040. They can tell you where the nearest service center is. Good luck.

Error on shutter


One of the curtains in the shutter unit is not opening /closing properly. This will probably require complete shutter unit to be replaced , but a trained technician might be able to repair the shutter without having to replace the whole block. At any rate camera should go to your Nikon agent.
