SV shutter problem on T

I've had two SVs, and with both of them the shutter doesn't close on "T" with a second press - have to wind the film on to close the shutter. Have I missed something, or is this a common problem?:ugh:

That doesn't sound right... but then I don't have first hand experience with that issue on that particular camera.

SV T mode

I used to use an SV a lot and I loved the T setting. Not that I ever read a manual on it, but the way I used it was to release the shutter on T and then change the speed setting off of T to close the shutter. Sadly, the shutter on my SV started sticking and the exposures became inconsistent and so I moved on.... well, come to think of it, T mode would still work quite well.

Thanks Zedel - that's one way of doing it! Mike Buktus has an SV manual on his website, and there's nothing about any peculiarities with "T" in that. Guess it must be a common problem. Apart from that , the SV is my kind of camera - no frills but really nice handling.
