    Anyone evr repair the shutter on a 35 mm Minox such as the Minox 35 EL?

    Hi,

    I have a couple of these cameras. I really like them, but of course they have the dreaded shutter solenoid fault.

    It is intermittent, but sometimes the shutter doesn't fire. You might lose one or two frames a roll, or you might lose ALL except one or two frames.

    Trouble is there is no way to tell.

    I intend to strip and service them - I hope having two I may have a reasonable chance of succeeding as I have a correctly assembled example to hand

    Thing is, despite it being such a common and well known about problem, I can find almost nothing on the net to help. No diagrams, no one else's experiences, no schematics.

    Maybe my searching skills are off - anyone know of any resources?

    Thanks.
    Steve
