  • Sounds like there's something stuck. Could be dust, dirt, or sand. Take a can of air to it to clean it out.

    I have a Funjifilm Finepix s1000 fd.
    Canon AE-1 SLR.
    Canon EOS Rebel xs N SLR.

    My dad's camera had the same as yours, where the camera "door" was stuck up. This was due to sand in there. Like I said, just take a can of air and gently blow in there. Then turn it on and back off and see if it opens/closes. If not, then it might be offset and needs to be readjusted. Take it to your local camera shop and see if they can readjust it for you.
