It needs factory repair - find another used camera or buy a new digital. That camera is not worth spending the money on to repair.

Shutter will open but not close


Sounds like the camera is not getting battery current, since that is how it will act without batteries. Does the meter needle respond to changing light when switched on? If not, check battery polarity -- the + end touches the strip at the bottom of the battery compartment, the - end touches the battery cap. If that all checks out right, one of the wires connecting the battery compartment to the innards may be corroded or loose.

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.

The shutters on my Fujifilm E900 wont open or close properly.


Hi,
Do you mean the lens cover on the end of the lens Is not opening properly, or the shutter inside the lens?

Olympus Stylus 730 shuts off after few seconds. Battery is fully charged, tried a resetting: no change.


To save battery power, the camera automatically goes into sleep mode and the monitor turns off if there is no operation when the camera is turned on (when the lens cover opens and the monitor is on). No picture is taken even if the shutter button is fully pressed in this mode.
Operate the zoom lever or other buttons to restore the camera from sleep mode before taking a picture. If the camera is left for 15 minutes, it automatically turns off (the lens cover closes and the monitor turns off). Press POWER to turn the camera on.

Sounds like you broke a lens gear, or it is jammed with sand.

DSC-W80 zoom extends, shutter opens, closes, zoom closes, 5x, won't work


Hey kbcinc,
I would try taking the battery out and waiting a minute and then reinserting the battery. Another option you have is to try and reinitialize the camera, but you would need access to the settings menu on the camera and it doesen't sound like you do. To initialize the camera go to main settings 1 and choose initialize. If this doesn't work I would bring it to an authorized service center to have it looked at.

Sincerely,
Allan

Shutter closed


Any small distortion to the case will jam the dust shutter mechanism, as will dislodged dust and dirt. Remove the battery and carefuly remove the case screws. DO NOT LOSE. Lift off the front cover, take care with the top control knob and on/off switch as there are dust shields that may tear. This reveals the dust cover mechanism on the front of the camera. Dust off with an air-duster or soft spotlessly clean (new) paintbrush. Check a narrow ribbon cable is plugged-in at the front as this powers the cover motor. Gently guide the case around the top rotary control & on-off switch and line-up the circuit board beneath the rotary switch. Do not force anything together. Lightly re-assemble without screws and insert the battery - you cannot make this test without the cover-on as the case supports the switches needed to control the camera. Check that the cover operates correctly or is jamming on the case cover at the front where the shutter moves. If all OK replace the screws, else gently straighten the case with your fingers. This has happened several times to mine and cleaning it/lightly straightening the case cover always make it work again.

Shutter


sounds like the lil motor that is in charge of opening and closeing the shutter might have shorted out causing it to stick, or it could have just simply burnt out or striped the lil gears on the motor. If the shutter moves alil bit i would say you probably have a short in the shutter motor.
