    Hi there,

    The counter on my Canon P is stuck at "S", I'm not quite sure what is causing this. The camera is fine in every other way.

    Any ideas?

    Funny, I bumped into a P a few weeks ago that was stuck on '18'. I would image taking it apart and fiddling with some gears might fix it.

    I ran across this blog post as well, which has some pictures of a P taken apart (for shutter curtain repair, but it seems somewhat easy to open.)
