    Hi,

    I borrowed a Lomo Smena 8M from a Moscow friend of mine, who got it in her childhood. Now, as I tried the mechanism, the shutter jammed. I wonder if anyone could point me towards a manual or have some tips on how to fix it.

    thanks in ahead
    Erik

    Thanks, although the problem on mine seems to be more in the shutter mechanism. I might try your advice later today

    I tried the tips, but they regard repair of the upper mechanism. In my case it is the shutter and the aperture blades that are jammed. I am a little wary of opening up the lens.
