I bought a Vb last year on eBay. It cost £105. It is not in great cosmetic condition, but the lenses were very clean. It developed a transport problem, and the shutter problem you have, after 4 or 5 rolls. It cost £90 for an overhaul to fix these faults. I have kept my eye on the market during that period, and I'm sure the lower price reflects the cosmetic condition. I would be surprised if you could buy a good, clean example of any of the V,s for under £200 in the UK. As others have said, if you get it fixed, it should work for years to come. The alternative is a refund and start again, but you could face similar issues with another example. Alex
