There's a repairman in Sparks NV who specializes in EOS and T90 repair. Last time I had work done it cost me $125, including return post. On the other hand, a functioning Elan IIe can be had for $25. I am not wealthy, but I would rather spend the money than toss the camera and try to find another without problems.

Edit: I should point out that the $125 buys a complete CLA, including cleaning the shutter and replacing the disintegrating shutter bumper.
