i8510 camera shutter keeps sticking

after 2 repairs on my i8510 for dust i now find the camera shutter sticks like hell !.it seems to want to remain open and wont close.i've used a dab of isopronol on a cotton bud but you can see it trying to close but it cant.

sometimes randomly it will shut so its making me think , whatever motor it uses to shut is failing.i always carry the phone in a leather protector pouch and its never taken a bang.

anyone else had this problem ?, seems like mines on its way back to the repair shop.also , will the swap the phone now that its on its 3rd repair ?.

(added) ;-
also , the auto focus on the camera will randomly not work even after selecting " AF " on the set up the pictures are blurred.then magically it will work then stop again.
totally had enough of this phone. in 12 months this will be the 3rd repair.

You actually can repair+clean Samsung i8510 DIY.There is a tricky bit:screen connector needs to reconnect and it's dodgy to get there,but it's possible.
I'll post pictures and instructions later as I need to get a new screwdrivers.
