    my rebel is doing the same thing. I just got it for christmas and the shutter is stuck and I can't take any pictures. I got it opened by pretending to clean the lens but now after every picture it just goes back to being stuck. Battery is fine, tried a few, all new and all charged. Haven't even pressed anything special. Brand new...what the?

Shutters on the lens won't fully open


Stuck automatic lens covers are fairly. But usually it's very easy to fix, without even opening the camera. See this link for troubleshooting steps for this problem.

Nikon FG. Replaced 3V battery. On the M90 setting the film advances OK. On 'program' or other settings it will only advance once and after shutter fires it will not advance until put on...


M90 is a battery independent setting - it requires no battery power to function. If it won't advance until put on M90 from other settings, then either you're not allowing for proper exposure, have the settings incorrectly set (film speed, etc), or you have shutter issues. The shutter is electronically controlled on all settings except M90. In the auto setting, your lense MUST be set to the smallest aperture (biggest number). On any other setting, you can use it however you'd like. I'd suggest unloading any film, setting the shutter speed dial to 1/125 or so, opening the back and looking thru and firing the shutter. If it's not snapping open and immediately closed, theres an issue and you need to consult a repair technician either locally, through Nikon, or through KEH Camera online.

I have a nikon N2000 35mm slr, before it was fully functional, now the problem is, The shutter won't open/close but the rest of the camera controls are still functional. Camera wasn't set on B...


So I assume you have changed the batteries and made sure there isn't any corrosion on the contacts. If your mirror is flipping up but no shutter, it sounds like a bad shutter. Check the shutter from the back, then from the front behind the mirror. Look for abnormalities or residue. It is a great camera and uses standard batteries (!) but the 1/2000 shutter has a half life like any other SLR. If you are going to throw it out you may want to open the back and use a q-tip to drip a couple drops of 90% alcohol on the top and bottom (and sides) of the shutter. As a last ditch, I throw cameras or lenses in the toaster oven at 200° for 10 min. and retry (take out batteries and film). At the least it will kill any fungus at the worst it hardens some lubricants. It does make you feel like you are doing some specilized scientific work before you toss it in the trash.

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:

I push on the shutter button and nothing happens!


Have you tried to put new batteries in it sometimes when they start to die then not all of the functions will work and also cheap batteries can be brand new but not strong enough to run the functions

Shutter button causes camera to turn off


It is usually a battery strength issue. Try this, set the flash to "no flash" mode and try to take a shot. If it works with the flash set to "off", the batteries are probably not strong enough to power up the flash and shoot. If that doesn't work, try really, really GOOD batteries. Most of my customers with this problem solve the issue with Energizer Lithium AA batteries. We sell lots of these batteries, and it usually solves the problem.

Shutter problem with a sony dsc-w30 camara


Make sure the battery is strong and not failing you and that the extending lens cover parts are clean. You may have gotten something in there.
