Hi Axel. A little more explanation of what " sticky " means would help. Is the film not advancing? Is the film not rewinding? Is it hesitating when the shutter button is pushed? When I had my LX and Winder, I found that the contacts on both the camera and Winder needed to cleaned quite regularly to operate properly. Considering the age of the equipment now. I would suspect the spring loaded contacts on the winder to be the issue. Brass will oxidize, and this oxidization will act as an insulator, restricting electrical power flow. If you have a reputable service provider in your area, I personally would not hesitate to get that lovely piece of kit looked at. Good luck.

Thanks Peter, but the Problem did not further occur :-)
The winder is working fine now ...

Best regards,
Axel
