Konica Auto S2 Help
I was lucky enough to win an Auto S2 on eBay. Then I was unlucky enough to actually get it. It is not in shape that the seller described (he omitted certain facts), so I have a couple of questions and need some help to get this camera working perfectly. Luckily, the auction was won for 99 cents.
1. The camera seems to operate in auto mode only. Even when set to manual, the camera behaves like in auto mode. Does anyone have a clue what might be the issue? And then have some detailed instructions on how to fix it?
2. There seems to be extra felt added by the previous owner. Can someone confirm if there is felt around the catch release on the body side? There is felt that is above and below the film door catch release on my example and it makes the camera hard to open.
3. The rewind crank seems to missing its spring action. Can someone describe what provides the pressure on the rewind crank? It just flops open and close.
Thanks in advance and happy holidays.
