Hi there,
The shutter mechanism may be obstructed by debris, e.g. a grain of sand, or it may be broken.
Try gently moving the shutter using a toothpick or similar item.
If there is any resistance to the movement, then it is obstructed.
If it moved freely and appears to be loose, then the mechanism is broken and it will need to be repaired.
