    Cameras with problems

    Free to good homes: cameras with problems! I'm asking $7 a pop for shipping.

    Some of these may be totally worthless (I'm thinking the petri 7s, maybe the ricoh), I really don't know, but if you repair cameras they might make good projects. I'm sure we've all gotten ebay/thrift store duds, I just can't bring myself to throw them away.

    Ricoh 500G - Meter responds to light, the problems are: shutter seems to fire at only one speed, sometimes the shutter fires immediately after the film advance lever returns to resting position, light seals.

    Gone Yashica Lynx-5000 - Film door hard to keep closed. The part the door latches to is a bit broken at the edges so it sometimes pops out. If you can get it shut it stays shut. Shutter, meter, everything else is fine.

    Petri 7s - Film advance lever won't advance, so I can't even check shutter. This one may be a parts camera. Meter responds to light.

    Yashica electro 35 GT - I think there's an electrical problem and a shutter problem. Shutter doesn't open, just kind of quivers. It sounds like the shutter fires at only one speed no matter what it's set to.

    GONE Yashica-Mat LM - Shutter problem. When I fire the shutter it doesn't open, just quivers. Aperture and shutter dials hard to turn. I emailed a repair guy who said a CLA might fix all the problems, but it was in the 100s of dollars and I'm not certain it will fix everything. Light meter inoperative. Someone engraved a number on the viewing hood, then crossed it out. Lens looks pretty good. I really got burned on this one, seller assured me it was top notch.


    I've described all these cameras accurately. They're give aways because I know I can't fix them but think someone probably can. Apart from shipping ($7) if you don't mind, please email me a picture taken with the camera you fix. If it's a total dud I'll refund your shipping. Thanks!

    John you should try a little bit of naphtha or lighter fluid onto the shutters of Ricoh and the yashicas. You should be able to get to them with a spanner or even a simple rubber friction pad. And after that work the shutters a bit. A little bit of graphite/moly powder should help keep them jam free as the naphtha evaporates.

    I thought about fixing them for a while, but I put it off too long. This is a girlfriend imposed camera exile. Cameras that I don't use and am not fixing aren't safe here.

    Good thing "cameras she does not know about" is exempt.

    My trick is to just get so damn many of them, leave them all in a jumbled mess of a room all over the place, then if one gets added she just doesn't know...
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    f/64 and be there.

    That strategy has served me well.

    ... taking up valuable camera storage space.

    Who needs more than two shoes?!!

    Omega Foot Switch

    Old Omega foot switch in fair condition. Label says "part 7901"; not sure what it is from. Has household style plug. Cord has been repaired or spliced. I've tested with an ohm meter; appears to be working. It's heavy for it's size; shipping weight is just under 3 lbs. If you want it, send me your zip (or country) and I'll calculate shipping.

    Unopened 126 film cartridge

    I can post a picture if someone wants, but I have a "Famous Brand Triple print Color Film" 126 film package, still sealed.
    Maybe the backing paper and cart is useful for someone who wants to get an Instamatic or 828 cam to function, IDK.

    The box is kind of entertaining, on the side it says "3 easy steps to JET AGE service"
    The steps are;
    1. take photo
    2. place film and $4.45 in mailer envelope (with your name and address)
    3. place in mailbox


    What could be easier?

    The expiration date on the package is Oct 70, so it's probably only useful for the backing paper and cartridge. Especially since that is a pre C41 process timeframe. It is complete, with the mailer, so who knows, maybe "Famous Brand" is still around to process it, or maybe not...

    Anyway, it's free for the postage cost, PM if interested.
    If you think you want it, please let me know asap. The package is interesting, but not interesting enough to hold onto for very long.
