The shutter has seized up on mine as well. I've just got it up on the shelf as eye candy.
note: I didn't purchase mine on ebay. I was buying some equipment from a gent who was going completely digital and he threw it in for free. Worked for about 6 months. Great little camera--would get another if I wasn't worried about it breaking and if it could go up to 1200 iso in auto mode (800 is the max). I really liked the leaf shutter: quiet and fast sync speed.
