    I just got an Alpa 9d that is DOA. The film advance doesn't work and the mirror stays down, but the shutter fires OK.

    I wonder if anyone has a repair manual for Alpa 9d. Otherwise, a DIY success is rather slim.

    Thanks!

    DIY success is slim anyway, as Alpas are notoriously hard to repair and parts are difficult to come by. I suggest you send it to Radu Lesaru at 3R Camera, the best (only?) Alpa guy in the USA.

    Thanks! It has been repaired and working perfectly.

    I am selling it now.
