Eek! Well, that answers that question! So far the only thing I've fixed was my film loader; it was stuck really badly, but in all honesty, I don't think I knew how to work it, not so much that the camera was "broke".
That said, I'm a complete novice and this seems complicated to me. I do know I'd do more harm than good, after reading that! Maybe after some more time & experience, I can look into my own repairs; but for now I think I'll bring my lovely one into the shop here in town, I know a man who can fix this for me and he's a dear.
I'm gonna store this information away for a rainy day -- you know, after I know what I'm doing better!
Thank you so so much!
