I think this would make the flex cable more brittle also.I like to do these things to my camera and bring it out to take photos even on hot sunny days.Sad December 12, 2009 at 8:55 AM Anonymous said... June 8, 2009 at 10:56 PM vince said... September 17, 2009 at 4:54 AM Camera Repair said...

This solution worked perfectly in only 7 tries. Well Anonymous with the SD750 and Herodotus with the IXUS 70 encouraged me to try something. After 20+ attempts with the first method, a few judicious taps on a plastic table did the trick. this contact form TRY THIS FIX - Duration: 3:39.
One more step Please complete the security check to access www.lionebra.com Why do I have to complete a CAPTCHA? HiWe have 15 Canon S3is at work and on the third try the stuck shutter released itself, took a few shots and seems fine now. Hi! Just for giggles I searched for any news or price change, found your blog and proceeded to use the power off tweak several times and pounded the camera against a stack
Hi, My Canon S2 IS got same problem and your solution worked fine in 3 attempts. http://www.lionebra.com/canon_powershot_sd1000_digital_camera/q1656633-canon_sd1000_flash_fire I have a Canon PowerShot S2 IS and the recommended fix of using mode M and interrupting power by opening the battery cover worked for me. Alternative Fix b. i have an older canon power shot a620 and i don´t use it much.
turned the camera on and thumped the lens a few times and it has been working ever since. One person reported on Fixya doing this 15 times before his shutter became unstuck. thanks! :) August 6, 2009 at 9:33 PM Bonnie D said... http://haiteq.com/canon-powershot/canon-powershot-s3-flash-not-working.php Still a stuck shutter for my A610!
Thank you so much! Was it just coincidence? But this ends on March 31, 2010, so get going on it!
Once working, used the feature "snap 3 pictures in a row with one click" hundreds of times to "work" the iris. Thanks again!--Katie October 28, 2009 at 4:59 PM ptica_pevacica said...

Thanks! Now I hesitate to show you this, as I really think your chance of success by manually going in there is very slim. I tried your fix and on the 2nd try it worked! http://haiteq.com/canon-powershot/canon-powershot-s3-is-flash-not-working.php Some people have reported success with this method, and they noted that it required many tries.
Thank you so much for sharing! Great!FYI, check out this webpage to confirm you have a stuck shutter issue: http://www.bsodpowershotrepair.com/Yes, it's an ad for a fix. Anonymous with an A80,First, did you confirm no visible shutter movement down the front of the lens, or do you see a flicker there? Had to do the battery door trick for 15 min, but that unstuck the shutter.
wanted to say thanks. And this fix worked for me in about 5 attempts.
