Meanwhile the shutter remains open and a large flat pin on the bottom right (looking into the body) protrudes....
    And looking through my other Blad stuff testing it out...my 50mm does not open up: changing apertures on the barrel has no effect. Time for some professional help...

    BradleyK seems to be having a bad decade. Can someone help him with his Nikon.

    Yes, I know that would not be in the spirit of this thread, but he needs some help now.

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Fixed the 500c/m; apparently a "sync" issue. Got the gist of the problem, but am hard pressed to determine exactly what I did during cleaning/prep that caused the issue...

    The F5, for its part, apparently suffered only cosmetic damage (a nice crease along the left front of the body and a battery holder that - glued together - does not align as snugly as it once did). No damage to the lens mount and the electronics all check out. Meanwhile, Nikon in Toronto has yet to render their verdict on the 28-70ED...

    Today I broke a Minolta MC W.Rokkor-HG F2.8 35mm lens trying to open it, and clean oil off of the aperture blades. That is why I registered to APUG!

    Oh and I assume this tread is for DIY repairs/mods so I don't have plan to take it to repair shop soon
    I hope you learned something. Take the parts off the junk camera first.

    Kinda like replacing the transmission fluid in your automobile. Loosen the refill plug first before draining the transmission.

    Me too. I will never break anything I am working on again. I have finally worked out I am not capable of fixing things so will not be trying.

    Aftermath/Consequence of the 28-70ED's Faceplant:

    "Repaired the aperture operation. Replaced the bayonet mount. General check and clean."
    Nikon Canada

    Total cost of failing to properly tighten leg of Tiltall prior to mounting camera: $411.60
    A lesson learned.

    I don't wanna talk about it. Let's just say it involved a Nikkor 50mm 1.4 SC, and leave it at that.
