I will do my best, though I would like to warn you ahead of time what you are describing can sometimes require replacing the entire lens. What happens exactly when the shutter tries to close?

The shutter doesn't completly close. I've been waiting to have some news from you? have you come up with anyone who can help me yet?

First let's see if the lens is simply off center which can cause this to happen.
To check that while holding the power button gently push the lens to the side.
Test this with both sides, if it is off center to one side doing this should get it to retract while holding the power button.

If this did not work please come back and let me know by clicking on reply to expert so we can continue.
If it did work please don’t forget to leave a positive rating it is greatly appreciated.
