How to Repair a Stuck Shutter

2012-04-18 1

With a single drop of lubricant it is possible repair a stuck shutter. Read on to find out how to do this with these simple steps.

Perhaps it’s too obvious ,but i think it´s very helpful. Recently the shutter of my Holga got stuck and I had to push on the shutter with more strength. It resulted in blurred pictures.

At first, I thought I had to get a new Holga. Then I remembered that if I put some kind of lubricant on the shutter mechanism, it could help. It did, and now my Holga works properly.

You only need a single drop of any lubricant like WD-40 or something similar. Just open your camera so that the shutter mechanism gets exposed and let little drop of lubricant fall on the shutter mechanism .

Your camera should work smoothly now.

This works on my Holga and in other cameras with similar shutter machanism like the Diana F+ for example.
