    this was covered recently here at length
    and there is a person who fixes these
    for about $100 was mentioned.
    Do a google group search for canon
    sticky shutter.

    There is a rubber stopper on the bottom of the shutter blade that decomposes
    over time and needs to be replaced. The bumpers are available from Canon. I
    have replaced hundreds over the years.

    This is caused by the shutter brake melting, then leaving a sticky
    residue on the upper-left corner of the shutter blades. I got mine
    (EOS 650) fixed by a local camera repairman in August 2000 for a bit
    over $100 USD . The camera has worked fine since the repair. You
    don't need to junk your camera.

    That sounds like exactly what has happened. The substance is on the left
    side of the shutter.

    Can you hook me up with the one who repaired yours? Apparently our
    Camera shop people aren't too swift around here.

    Thanks for your reply.

    From a previous post in this group - the contact guy for repairing your EOS 630
    is at/near the bottom of the post. I have not used him myself but I've read
    about him and he seems like he should be considered as one of your prime
    candidates to do this repair. Hope this helps...

    SNIP

    "Streetshooter and Robmur nailed the problem exactly. This failed shutter
    stopper is a common problem with 650's. Happened to the two 650's my kids use.
    You will probably find goo on the shutter blade, left side.

    The fix is about $100. [email]Steven40aol.com[/email] did both of mine. Excellent work, and
    nice guy to deal with. Quick turnaround.
