One of three things. First try pressing the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. If that didn't correct the problem, read on. \015\012
\015\012Second potential issue, if your camera's a Canon, and if your camera is in the following list, it's likely a CCD problem. Please see this link.\015\012\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012Applicable cameras include:\015\012A60, A70, A75, A80, A85, A95, A300, A310, S1 IS, S60, S230, S400, S410, S500, SD100, SD110, IXUS V2/V3/300/400/430/500/II/IIs, IXY Digital 200a/300a/320/400/450/500/30/30a \015\012
\015\012But if your camera was not listed above, 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, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). \015\012
\015\012To 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.\015\012

When switched on the camera tries to open the lens. It is clearly being obstructed in some way, and after three attempts closes down with the message "Please turn camera off and on again". If tapped gently sometimes the lens will open, and if the lens is caught and encouraged to stay out then ooccasionally the camera opens as normal. If the lens does stay open the camera appears to function as normal.

When pressing the power button, the shutter opens, the lens comes out, the screen comes on for about 2 seconds. Then the screen turns off, the lens goes back in, but the shutter stays open.

Look closely for sand particles that may be lodged around the gaps of the lens barrel. Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or th ... Kodak Easyshare C182 12MP Digital Camera

A classic one... so it seems, but I could not find an answer here or elsewhere. My Lumix DMC-FP1 normally can be turned on by either opening the lens cover or by pushing the 'ON' button.

I have downloaded service/repair manual but there are no hints on how to fix. Can it be fixed? That is the question.
