    Ricoh 500G with a sticky meter needle.

    Another nice thrift store find. The camera is mint cosmetically although the light seals are shot. After powering it up with a new battery I found the meter responsive but there seems to be a bit of crud or something that prevents the needle from returning to the underexposed setting unless I lightly tap the shutter release.
    Does anyone know of a cure for this maddening situation? I would consider opening up the camera but cannot find a repair site on line.

    Thanks Much,
    Mike

    search the archives, if you don't find anything I'm sure someone can help.
