could there be a hole the aperture or shutter ?
can you cock and fire the shutter with the back open
and point it at a strong light source and see if it is there ?
i am not familiar with that camera, does it happen with the lens OPEN all the way ?
india ink and white glue might be a nice friend to have ...
Maybe. It's fixed 1/125 shutter speed, but if I use bulb and point it into strong light, the aperture should be tiny. That might be a good chance of seeing holes in shutter/aperture.
I want this little guy to work. It's such a neat little camera.
