This is definately the last time I purchase a rangefinder camera on E**y (never had any throuble with any other type of camera purchased there) but perhaps some advice may enable a repair.
The 7s is generally very clean but needs new light seals (not difficult I know and recently purchased the kit to do this), the shutter fires and the blades appear OK. However, even though there is no battery in the compartment (and I suspect never was inspite of it being sold as "full working order"), the meter is stuck at over exposure. Am I assuming that something has shorted out the meter and got it stuck at that level? Not sure which battery it takes (need to google for this) but doubt it will move if I put one in anyway. When I can find a small enough screw driver to remove the bottom, will check to see what state the battery contacts are in.
Any suggestions appreciated again. I may keep hold of this because it should probably working in manual mode but I'm absolutely useless at reading manual light meters so would prefer a working one.
