View Full Version : M3 shutter jammed
Hello, I have a problem with my m3,jammed. Some part of petersham (stays under courtain and stops light) goes off and jammed a shutter mechanism. I need to repair it but I dont know how much it will cost and where is she cheapest service in Europe. I am from croatia.
Any ideas of price and service?
You need to contact a repair person to get a real price, but I would estimate over $250 equivalent.
It looks like the felt light shield has fallen off, which is very common with the deterioration of the old glue.
The top and front cover needs to come off, and the inner metal light shields need to be removed, and then the felt strips can be reglued. And with so much disassembly, the camera can be relubricated.
It is a worthy operation.
Oh, try this thread for service shops. I'm more familiar with North America
I had one do this. As Vick says, it's the glue gone dry and one of the felt strips dropped into the shutter mech. i took mine apart and the felt had gone between a ribbon and drum. Once apart it was an easy fix. The core has to be seperated from the shell and then the light shield removed and the felts replaced. To remove the shield the focus arm has to be removed. A standard service should fix this. Send it to Will van Manen in Nederlands.
