Can you verify if the self timer works?

RETURN THE LEVER TO "X" BEFORE TRYING IT!!

Also, is the little glass/plastic piece over the shutter speeds in tact?

The self-timer will cock only part-way, giving you about 4-5 seconds of delay. I can see a piece of metal blocking the lever, but haven't investigated beyond that.

The protective plastic over the shutter speed indicator is intact.
