    Any chance the shutter release lock is partially engaged?

    Assuming of course, that that model has a shutter release lock.

    That's something I would only try with a repair manual in front of me. There is nothing to make a situation worse than not knowing any better. I am not wanting this to go to camera heaven yet.

    I've been looking for a repair manual all over. Any links? All I found were sites charging for them. As I am a recent outsourcing victim, that's a game I cannot play.
    Get it right in the camera, the first time...

    This is what I suspect. If I place the lock halfway and then edge it towards unlock while having gentle pressure on the trigger, the next trigger is effortless. Next cock and we are back to a little stuff.

    Hello;
    Had this problem on my M645 body. Remove advance knob and peel back the leatherette to expose screws. Get the side panel off and will expose the shutter switch. This has a screw that retains this and backs off. Straighten up the switch and tighten the screw, you should be good to go. Hope this helps, Steven.

    When you refer to the advance knob, do you mean the clip-on part or the whole assembly?

    Hello;
    The whole knob, the release is on the outer circumference. This should be covered in the owner's manual. Just proceed with caution, Steven.
