I took a look at geting to the aperture ring, but didn't get much past taking off the cosmetic lens ring. At the moment the aperture ring is fairly loose and is rotated too far, so that it starts beyond f16 and only goes to ~f8.
The other notable problem is that I got no response when I put a battery in the camera. I used one of the adapters available online + a 28L 6V battery... I haven't looked to see if it is a simple task of re-attaching wires.... I guess taking off the top cover would be a start?
Any advice as to whether this is something a reasonably dexterous person with young eyes could tackle would be appreciated!
