Today I discovered that my X100S stopped working. When turned on, I could see frame lines in OVF but if I tried to focus and AF error would come up. I tried to switch to EVF/LCD but then I discovered that either EVF or LCD are completely black. There is no lens hood cap on the lens but the problem appears to appear as if lens-hood cap is on. Does anyone have any experience with this? Any quick/easy fixes? Thanks.

It's happened before. Take the battery out and leave it out for an hour or so then put it back in. Make sure it's charged.

Sometimes that seems to reset the curtain.

Thanks for the input. I tried it several times but without any success. Where is the shutter located? In the body or lens? Can it be easily repaired?

if the live view is black I wouldn't worry about the shutter, as it could be any number of problems - and no, the shutter is not something to service yourself.
