Having problems with your Konica Minolta DiMAGE F100 Digital Camera ?
Shutter will not fully open or close
\015 The automatic shutter gets stuck at different points and causes a shadow in the image corner.\015\012\015\012It will not fully open when the camera is turned on and will not fully close when the camera is turned off.\015\012\015\012The only solution to this problem is invert the entire camera and shoot that way.\015
Try using a can of compressed air on the shutter mechanism. You may have a piece of grit between the blades. Also whilst the camera is switched off you can gently move the shutter manually when you do and there's something stopping it you'll feel it. Move the shutter up and down quickly and the grit may fall out. Even a gentle tap with the camera upside down and the right way up may dislodge any dirt.\015\012One of my customers had the audacity to put a dab of super glue on the shutter. He never had a half open shutter again. A bit drastic but it worked for him. He ended up fitting a UV filter to the lens and his lens is safe from damage or dirt.\015\012\015\012BMW
It sounds like the shutter mechanism is dirty, or you have a bad spring. Try taking it to a camera shop and have them clean it. It is not very expensive, and well worth it if it fixes the problem.\015\012\015\012Best regards,\015\012nightdiver\015\012\015\012Let me know if it solves the problem.

Lens Error I fell while holding my camera. The lens was open at the time and when I got up I turned the camera off. I then turned it back on to check it and the lens opened and immediately closed with the "lens error" on the screen. I can turn it off and on and the lens will always open but closes as soon as it has opened with the lens error on the screen. The shutter opens but closes also, like the lens. Can this be fixed? It was a gift so I don't have the bill of sale but I still have the orig

I have a Kodak M1063 that has never been dropped or abused. I have had it for a couple of years and it has worked flawless. A couple of weeks ago it started malfunctioning as it would open the shutter and then close it immediately. I thought that maybe it was time for a new battery and I bought one and charged it. The camera still does the same thing. It powers up...opens the shutter then close Immediately. please advise

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

The power turns on but the shutter door will not open or extend, it prompts to turn off the power and turn power back on. I am able to see the photos thru the home button already taken that are stored on the card and do the other functions, but am unable to shoot new pictures because the shutter door remains closed. You can hear it trying to open but it will not.
Usually when you see this either the shutter cover motor has a problem or the cover is jammed. You can try gently helping the cover open but don't force it. You haven't mentioned the camera model so I can only give you some generic advice ... Digital Cameras
