Anyone know anything about the Nikon FE?

Hi all! I have an old Nikon FE that was given to me some years back. I just dug it out. It's in remarkably clean condition. It had the stuck shutter/winder problem but a little fiddling with the winder seems to have sorted that out.

Now the issue is that the shutter sounds like its only firing at one speed no matter where I set the dial. The shutter does work properly in Bulb.

I tried new batteries. The battery indicator light goes on and the meter appears to work, but the shutter behaves the same way.

I asked on a Nikon forum and no one is even reading, so I figured I'd try here. Any guesses?

Thanks!
Aaron

Back in my day I knew the rep and the repair team leads. Not a clue how to troubleshoot it. It is a fine camera but as a manual snob back then I preferred the FM/fm2.

Battery?
FE2 only has 1 shutter speed without battery.

Yep, tried new batteries. Meter works, battery light lights up, but shutter behavior doesn't change.

If you have access to a camera repair shop, then I'd have them take a look to see if it can be repaired for a reasonable cost.
