I cried out in anguish as I was loading a fresh roll of film into my X700...the film advance just up and quit. Aargh!!! Nooooo! It can't be! This is my baby! This is my very first slr! She CAN'T die!

So, while contemplating her untimely demise, I asked myself, "I wonder how difficult a repair it is?" So here I am, asking the all knowing APUG Collective Mind:

Do you think its possible for someone who has never even removed a back cover to a camera, to possibly do this repair?

Are repair manuals easy to find and is worth the time and effort?

Any thoughts or advise would be greatly appreciated.
