    Let us know how it goes. Yeah, he's a good guy. If a bit ornery sometimes.

    She is not located in Washington state, but I can say that Sherry Krauter
    ( www.sherrykrauter.com ) does outstanding work at fair prices and is prompt in her turnaround time. She is a Leica repair specialist, but may be able to repair other types of RFs too - you'll have to check with her on that.

    If she repairs only Leica, she may know a good place to send other RFs for service.

    Don't spent too much....

    A quick look at ebay completed listings shows several Ricoh 500's in the range $9.99-$30.

    One approach is to buy two or three of a given model, and then mix and match to make up one real good one.

I'll play with it some more later this evening and this week and see if I can figure it out!
    Good morning;

    It has been about a week now. How is it coming? Were you able to cajole it into co-operating with you last week or this past weekend?
    Enjoy;

    When they ask you; "How many Mega Pixels you got in your camera?"
    just tell them; "I use activated silver bromide crystals tor my image storage media."

    Blue Moon sends all (or most) repairs to Knight Camera in Vancouver, WA. Another option I recommend (have used them before many times) is Advanced Camera in Beaverton, OR.

    Nah, I've given up. I think I'll buy a new one later on down the road, and just knock parts off this one if I need them. It's a really cute little camera, but the guts are not so cute.
