    Hi

    My Yashica Electro 35 GT appears to go into 'B' mode when the yellow underexposure arrow is on. I press the shutter and it only closes when I take my finger off the shutter again. Have tried leaving my finger on for 30 seconds or more. No issues when shooting without the blasted arrow illuminated. Has anyone else experienced this problem? Anything that can be done to fix it?

    Thanks

    Alex

    Well, that's a new one on me! More than likely, it is being caused by a deteriorated POD, possibly combined with dirty contacts. If not, then it could be an indication of a more serious problem in the electronics. Can't be sure without looking at it...
