    Hmm, I'm starting to think just buying a new shutter is the best way forward. Where could I come across a working Betax 4?

    Crisis averted hopefully! One big sigh of relief! Thanks for your suggestions everyone. If this one isn't too good, which shouldn't be the case then its still available for parts should I need one of them repaired over here. Lucky I found that, it didn't appear when typing in 'Betax' for some funny reason, only came across it by typing in 'Wollensak'

    Jarvman,
    Flutots are brilliant, Carol makes everything easy and is happy to do buisness with people living abroad. E-mail them and ask if they can help before sending the shutter.
    Pete.

    If you are the type who can fix things, open it up and you will find a small wire spring that was rattled off a lever when you dropped it. If the lever doesn't have spring return the T and B won't work. Very likely all it needs is someone to tip it back where it needs to be with a tooth pick. Anyone who can repair a clock work can get this done for you.

    If not, I have a good working usable Betax 4 that I boogered the lens it once held.
