    Chris in this day and age I would expect to see a youtube clip attached, but given this is APUG a slide show would work.

    P.S. I just sent my SRT101 to Garry for CLA etc. .... you didn't pass that trick to him did you?

It's a boat anchor anyway right? I try some past X camera fixes. I find I can crank the film while holding dwon the shutter button. I remember it would fire via cable release. Just not the button. After about ten minutes, it dawns on me. I take the camera in my hand. Crank away from my hand. I then proceed to smack onto my carpeted floor. Once, twice, a few times. After a couple minutes, the crank goes on its own and the shutter button works. Do it again. And again. And again. Man, I love how these cameras are frickin' tanks. Takes major abuse and the thing actually begins to then work properly. I love it.
    When I was in the French Navy (was 2/3 years ago.) (huh, wait, no, not twenty, I can't belive it !) we had the "electronic kick" to repair the highly sensitive equipment : on those computers and displays made in the sixties, a very common repair was just this : kick it once or twice, and it should fix the loose contacts !!

    Tried the same with my T90, but this is not the same beast !

    Talking about the radios from '50s, at least the music was decent!

    Yeah, it had a kick to it.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    That's kinda funny. I have bought several Minoltas that "didn't" work. I had an SRT 101 and 201 that were jammed up too. Didn't smack them on the floor but within a few minutes had them unstuck. In the process of cleaning and restoring them now. Got some extra parts from parts cameras if anyone needs anything.
