I have a Canon IXUS 800, the shutter won't open properly, just opens about a millimetre. I don't want to break it as otherwise it is an excellent camera. I think it might have some dust in the shutter mechanism as we are using it to photograph an old farm we are renovating which is often a bit dusty even though we take care to put the camera into its cover after use. Can anyone suggest what is best to do please?

Kodak v610 camera (easy share) My 10 year son was using our v610 camera and the following error message E45 (please see user manual) appeared on the screen. We were unable to switch the camera off and therefore the shutter remained open. The shutter will only close if I remove and replace the battery and when I turn the camera back on the shutter remains open and the same error message returns. I have checked the manual and it doesn't mention this problem. thank you jane

I have a 3 year old Sony DCR-DVD202E Camcorder which has worked perfectly up until yesterday, when the lens cover refused to open. Other thsn this the camera powers up normally and the LCD screen shows a white dot where light is entering through the cover I have tried changing the battery, switching the camera on and off many times, powering it from the AC adaptor and, at the suggestion of Sony, resetting the camera. None of this has worked. It is possible to open the cover manually, so it is

Shutter malfunctioning I bought a new camera and within a month the shutter has started to malfunction. It doesn't shut completely when switched off nor does it open completely when switched on. If you touch the shutter manually it opens. Is there a way to fix this problem myself? Since my warranty card is not signed or date of purchase mentioned by the dealer I bought it from!
