Hi. My name is*****'m a camera repair technician with over 20years in the business and I'll be glad to help you with your question today.

Most of the time when this happens it is due to low battery voltage. You can normally get the shutter to release in "Bulb" mode even if the batteries are completely dead. Try this first and replace the batteries and then let me know what happens.
