    Copal N 0.0 doesn't work properly anymore

    Could anybody possible help!
    I have a Symmar-S 150 lens with a Copal N0.0 shutter which was working fine the other day. Was just about to use it where I noticed the times from 1 to 1/4 sec. are quick, real quick something like 1/250 sec. The times from 1/8 to 1/500 seem to be OK part of the time.
    When I cock the shutter the lever does not always return to its original position. Only when I let it go suddenly, if I release the cocking lever gently it tends to stay where it is. I suppose a spring or something may be broken inside.
    Does anybody have an idea what it may be. Is there a repair manuel or something online which could help?

    I suspect that you would benefit more from a decent local repairman than anything you might read on the internet. Copal repair manuals are available but I've only seen them offered for purchase and haven't found one posted publically.

    It is CLA time.
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    It is time to send the lens out for a CLA [Clean, Lubricate and Adjust]. Contact Carol Flutot at http://www.flutotscamerarepair.com/
