shutter closed in sensor cleaning mode

Dear Mike and Marc

After setting the camera on 'B' mode and pressing the shutter button for around the rth time the shutter finally released and there was the CCD.

Repeated the process, finally got the shutter open and was able to get the blower and dislodge the dust whilst holding the shutter button down. Nice clean shots now.

The shutter still remains firmly shut when using the proper 'sensor cleaning' funtion but this seems to be a 'work round' the present problem.

Apart from this problem the camera is fine and there are no signs of any other problems with the shutter.

Many thanks for your help, particularly to Mike since I did not know about the 'B' mode option and this got me most of the way there.

Many thanks for the reply.

Have done what you suggested and the shutter is still down. I am fairly sure that what I am seeing is the shutter and not the CCD. Certainly does not look like the photos of the CCD that I have seen elsewere.

Apart from this the camera has no problems and functions fine.

I have the *ist Ds and have been very happy with it over the years. Recently I have found dust spots on images and am attempting to blow them off the CCD. I have put the camera in the 'sensor cleaning mode' and the mirror goes up but the shutter remains closed.

Should hte shutter be closed? How do I open it to get to teh CCD?

Any help would be welcome.
