I've got one that fires, appears to have an accurate shutter & meter but the meter arm stopped swinging. You can have it for postage if you want to try and fix it - there's a service manual on line for free at: xa.html

Frankly, I like the older all manual pocket cameras better and don't consider the XA to be worth my time or money to get fixed. Sure, it's nice, but there are many nicer ones.
