Shutter stops half way - Cannon EOS 50D Digital Camera


Answers :

The only official fix for this is to replace the entire shutter assembly.

It is possible that the present assembly just needs cleaning and lubrication, but that is not a DIY job. In practice, a new shutter assembly will be fully guaranteed and the labour involved in replacing it is usually less than that involved in fixing and then testing your current unit. It's also true that with many modern shutter assemblies a sticking shutter tends to be a recurrent issue even if it is initially fixed.

Contact Canon in your country to get a warranty repair; your camera may be just outside the warranty period if you're unlucky, but in the absence of water or shock (fall) damage this sort of fault indicates faulty parts, material or construction at the outset and you should press Canon for a goodwill repair if necessary. Your argument will carry more weight if you can tell them how many other Canon products you've owned over the years. Note that if you're in the UK then the Sale of Goods Act covers you for up to six years (five in Scotland) so if Canon refuse to play ball then you can claim against the retailer who supplied the camera. A semi-pro camera which cost around £750 when new would be reasonably expected to last far longer than a year and a bit and even arguably up to the full potential five/six years that the Act allows for.

DO NOT attempt any DIY repairs on this unit; if you do so then all warranties and Sale of Goods Act coverage is null and void. Note that the manufacturer warranty may not be valid if the camera has been used professionally: check the warranty for details.

Although there's no quick and easy fix here I hope that you've found my posting to be of use and in return ask that you take a moment to rate my answer. Good luck with resolving this issue promptly.

Accidentally I dropped my Sony DSC S500 camera. Now the shutter is jammed. When i switch on, the lens ejects out and stops half way. While switching off, the lens doesn't come back to normal position, instead it stops in half way ejected position. From the LED display i could see a blurred image. I am able to see all the photos that i have taken so far, but am not able to take any new photos.

LCD monitor does not light up, and consequently, does not display any image (as some other digital cameras do) during the aiming and focusing processes - sort of prescanning the image - before the shutter is half-way then fully pressed. In other words, is the LCD monitor designed soley to display image review (playback) and show menues!


Actually the reason is due to the way an SLR works. The shutter doesn't open up to the CCD device (the digital equivalent of the film) until you press the shutter release button to take the shot. Until then, an angled mirror points the viewed image u ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

Camera shuts down after shutter button is pressed. It shuts down halfway through the shutter operation. Everything else works fine-reviewing pictures, settings in menu, focusing, exposure settings etc. The camera focuses ok when the shutter button is half pressed then when you press the shutter button fully, the mirror goes up, shutter appears to open then the camera shuts down with no power.
