    Yashicamat 124G light meter switch repair

    I have a new-to-me Yashicamat 124G with kind of sort of functioning light meter.

    I need to clean the switch contact that is activated with I flip open the WLF. I see 4 small phillips head screws around WLF. Are these what I remove to get to it? Anyone have a service manual and willing to share??

    Thanks!

    I was looking through some old bookmarks I had here, but didn't find one addressing the switch. Since I have a 124G with similar erratic meter behavior, I wouldn't mind a link to what you found (assuming it's online).

    Thanks in advance,

    Dave,

    I'd love to share it but it's a copy righted material. Let me ask the copyright owner first. Alternatively, I'd be glad to take some snap shots of my dis-assembly process and share THAT with you.

    Ah! No, don't violate any protocols, I thought maybe you had found something on line. A shot or two of the nitty gritty elements would be appreciated. If you're like me you might take step-by-step pictures anyway so it can go back together without too many leftover pieces! Having tinkered personally and professionally with mechanical/electrical gizmos, I can probably sort it out enough for my purposes, but in my old age I've begun to admit less need to re-invent any wheels!

    For what it's worth, here's a couple of (possibly) useful links:
