    Give him a call.

    Are your black dots and scuff on the viewing/focusing screen?

    This also could be a solution for you: "If neither works, there is a problem that needs to be solved. Ask KEH about footing the bill, or return the camera for a better one."
    I'll second David Odess. I just got my 500 c/m back from him after a CLA. Aside from the general CLA he also fixed a rather unusual problem with the film back. Just be advised that the cost of a thorough CLA may be half or more of what you paid for your kit!

    The silver lining is that his work is 1st rate and I expect the camera to operate well for years to come (I hope).

    OK, I found out the focusing screen is definitely scratched up a bit, though I may try a blower brush if I can pick one up at the local camera shop. A bit of an internet search reveals that you should never use any fluid to clean the focusing screen, since it can get sandwiched between the two plates of the screen. I may try buying another, but that looks like an expensive replacement. Not to mention that there are tons of model numbers and I can't seem to find an index of all of them.

    I'm off to try to complete my second roll to double-check that my film back indeed works.

    As QC said, read the manual. Contact KEH if there is still a problem.

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    A few scratches on the screen or some dust on the mirror doesn't mean a thing. Neither condition will affect the image quality, so I suggest leaving well enough alone if all else is working properly. The mirror is a first surface mirror, meaning that the reflective surface is on top of the glass support as opposed to most common mirror which have the reflective surface below the glass. These surfaces are VERY delicate and scratch very easily. They can be cleaned, but the procedure is risky if you don't know what you're doing. I wouldn't do any more than blow any loose dust off with a blower. Don't even use canned air.
