    Bronica SQ-A shutter speed dial not clicking

    Hello I have recently bought a Bronica SQ-A and put about 2 rolls of film though it. When I bought it I bought the waist level finder and I also got one of the chimney finders. The chimney finder has a meter so I have been using that more. Recently I put on the waist level finder and went out on a hike. When I was about to take my first photo the shutter speed dial was making a bit of a weird sound. I moved it a bit more and then no sound. It seems that I can still change the shutter speed it just does not click into position. I have seen someone else on the web indicate the same problem but said that after a couple of shots the shutter just satyed open. So my question is: has this happened to anyone else and if so what did you do about it?
    I appreciate any info on this

    Bronica SQ series bodies aren't the easiest for DIY fixes. Sounds like a detent mechanism is worn out/broken. Koh's is among the few who service Bronicas reliably in N. America. No clue where you're located.
