My ipod touch camera shutter stays closed when i start the camera app. This has been happening for a while but if i reboot the ipod several times then the camera will work. I have rebooted it about 35 times now and the shutter still will not open.
If restoring the iPod to factory defaults/new iPod does not solve the problem the I would go make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store or call AppleCare.
