I have a beautiful black QL17 (bought it in Japan in 1979) that was CLA'd by a well-known repair person. Trouble is, there is grease on the shutter blades, with predictable results. I won't send it back to this person (a third time) because he failed to fix the uneven film advance, the reason for the CLA in the first place.
I can live with the uneven film-advance problem (sort of) but the grease problem makes the camera inoperative. Any suggestions?
