After doing some research on line I agree about not doing the butter knife thing. Most sites say that the capacitor is the culprit. They can be bought quite cheaply from Micro Tools (6.95 for 10) and should be an easy replacement. 4 screws on the bottom plate need to be removed and the capacitor is exposed. I'm going to order them then have at it. Hopefully this will work. Theses are great old cameras. There is also a smaller capacitor under the top plate by the wind lever but it is not as likely a suspect. Gee, I actually did my homework on this one which could save money!
