Minolta CLE Finicky LED's and No Wind
Have been working on a Minolta CLE, first cleaning up the rangefinder mirrors which work fine now. Camera would not wind and found that LED's light up showing exposure readings but that ends with pressing the shutter release. Then after switching the camera off and on again the LED's operate again. The Self Timer works the same. I think I hear a slight noise at the end of the self-timer aperation, like static. Is it possible that the camera was put away wound up and the shutter release does not operate because of some electrical anomoly, maybe magetized shutter parts? Can I reverse the flow of current to the maget to get a release so I can get this operating? Any idea where shutter release hardware is located - top or bottom?
