Well, I tryed it and my situitation only got worse. Now it is just stuck open, and I can not turn my dail down past 1/60. So, i figured the camera is a loss so why not just go ahead and take it apart some more and have a look. That was interesting, but if the camera wasn't messed up before, it darn sure is now. The shutter is completely gummed up, but don't know how to get it out ofthe camera. A gear fell out from somewhere, but I have not a clue from where. I just learned that I am not skilled with this sort of thing, lol. Maybe I will play with it some more....better yet, maybe I should just chunk it into the garbage, lol.
