Does anybody know how to fix the ASA/ISO dial on a Super Program?


Yeah problems continue with my film slrs. I have a Super Program and its ASA dial is broken. Here's some of the exposure times the body suggests with different ASA settings:

ASA 6 1/2000
ASA 8 1/2000
ASA 10 1/2000
ASA 12 1/2000
ASA 16 1/2000
ASA 20 1/2000
ASA 25 1/15
ASA 32 1/15
ASA 40 1/1

After ASA 32 the exposure times get faster with each step correctly.

I think I have to dismantle the dial and turn it to correct position. At the moment when I'm shooting 400 film, the dial should be put to 3200 position, so it's 3 steps wrong.

I've unscrewed the dial once to see what's there, but I can't figure it out.

Btw this body is from ebay and I noticed the issue after giving positive feedback to the seller and now the seller won't respond to my messages. Body was sold as 'mint' which it is clearly not.
