    If you don't know how to do these things, may I gently advise you not to try. That 3.5f is a marvelous camera.

    I don't know where you are, but I sent my older K4B to Harry Fleenor. http://www.rolleirepairs.com/

    It was not really that expensive and he returned a very useable camera.

    You can also do ausbildung in any of the reputed Rollei repair centers in Germany. Please, do not do it by yourself unless you know how to.

    I once opened the Isolette III top to clean the rangefinder and realized how miniature and delicate are those screws and parts. I may never do it again.

    Have you done this sort of thing yourself?

    The Rollei 3.5f is a fairly complex camera. I'm not suggesting you aren't up to it, but it can take a fair bit of time
    and effort to do even simple things.

    I think most of us would rather take pictures. The Rolleiflex 3.5f is one lovely camera.

    There are manuals available on line for these things. Try- http://www.kyphoto.com/classics/repairmanuals.html

    i have read the manual. it's nearly useless, because it didn't give any information about the disassembly. there were only sketch in the manual, which were very hard to understand.

    I do not remember the term for this type of manual but it is for the experienced technician. It is basically an Illustrated Parts Breakdown. The numbers correspond to the assembly order. You have to look at different sections to find all of the information for each model covered. Compur uses the same type of manual. They're easy to follow once you get the hang of it but getting the hang can be like trying to climb a 90° rock face that is over 100 meters high with only a small rope in your hand that is attached to you only.

    I don't care how clever you are sir, you stand a chance of damaging a rather valuable camera.

    Cost of repair on these isn't prohibitively expensive and since you live in Germany you may have the creme de la creme
    of Rolleiflex technicians close by.

    When you have repaired as many as a thousand cameras in a career, as some of these people may have done, you get rather adept at it.

    If I had one and it was dead I would give it a go. Even if I failed and quit it could still be serviced and put into operation by an experienced technician. now, where did i put that hammer?
