    Folks, any chance somebody may have Owners and/ or Repair manuals for this equipment of Durst?Thank you in advance.

    BTWay: I tried to get this from headquarters of Durst; these very "supportive" people sent me to their service rep in Germany, who proposed to send me pdf copy of manual for as "low" as EUR 22 plus local VAT 19%. I stepped into chain of useless discussions with these people, trying to convince them that charging this ridiculous amount for something that they should provide as most of their competitors do, is unreasonable. Unfortunately, I bumped into real stubbornness of these service people, and got nowhere. I guess my lesson is - do not count on Durst, and do not buy their new equipment any longer.

    Is this an actual repair manual or the instruction manual. I really need to reset the tension spring on the back.

    Folks, meanwhile I've got the Durst L900 Manual from one of the German Forums (great cooperation of German Photo-folks at vfdkv-forum.de) , and may share it if needed. Just drop me a line and I will forward it to you. Yes, in German but with lots of photos which make the content really clear.

    Thanks to all of you, who are trying to help!

    00It looks like the L900 is very similar to the L1000 - I'd love a copy of that manual if possible..
