Canon AE-1P SL lever

Thanks for the tip. I re-read the PDF to see if you meant what I was thinking and I didn't see it first, but the SL plastic piece is put first on the shaft and aligned with the metal finger, then the plastic top cover will be installed on top. Now the camera functions normally, now I just need some oil for the squeaky shutter :)

E: Battery test button still haunts me as it randomly beeps and pressing it stops it. The "lever" metal piece that is being pressed down doesn't seem to have enough force to come back up. Tips for this, or should I just come up with some kind of small plate that makes it harder to press the button, and therefor harder for it to randomly short circuit.

Thanks, but I did the maintenance with this video, I did everything in reverse until the SL lever didn't move anymore and now the camera doesn't turn on.

Hello

I have an Canon AE-1 Program that I was doing some maintenance on. The issue is that the SL lever (A-L-S) doesn't fully rotate now. I have spinned it around for a good while now, but I still can't manage to seat it properly so that I can turn the lever in those 3 different positions, also when I screw the top cover back on, SL lever becomes so hard to turn that it's almost frightening, like it will snap in any moment. Any tips?

Ricoh shutter speed dial skipping by 2 stops

Started to disassemble the camera to see if there's and easy way to check the TTL unit, but immediately got stopped by the circuit. No way I'm going to remove almost 40 year old flex cable circuit board. 1.5 stop underexpose will do just fine...

The glue was torn off so it almost fell of when I disassembled the dial. Now it's working. Next up I'm going to replace the light seals and see how this body performs. Candle aluminum frame is great for small flat head screws.

I found the XR-7 from outlet for 10 bucks. Otherwise it works well, not sure about the light seals though. I guess someone has taken the dial off then :lol:. Found the repair manual and I'm going to fix it once I find a screwdriver small enough.

The blank images are from KR-10. The body is in mint condition except that it underexposes by 1 stop but that's not an issue for me. The images shot on colorplus were around 15s exposure, if I believe correctly. I never scanned the empty screens as there's only a black dot, even the frame background isn't exposed and all I remember is hearing the shutter go, as it's pretty loud. Delta 100 frames 13-16 were empty too. I can't wind the film when the shutter release is pressed and I'm not goofy enough to accidentally press shutter 3 times in a row.

I always advance the film when I'm about to take the photo, as I'm not sure if it can hurt the spring if I leave it loaded and never fire it. I Find it hard to make up any explanation for small dots in the middle, because dot bright enough to be visible, should have the background lit, but as seen in the image, there's nothing there. I couldn't replicate the issue, body works flawlessly. I just finished Berlin & Fomapan 400 so we'll see if there's anymore empty frames.

There's no dots in other images. I usually shoot outside both day & night.

Here is couple shots.

Hi

I have Ricoh XR-7 body that functions well except for the shutter dial that skips 2 stops. 1000 and 500 can't be chosen and all the other speeds are 2 stops behind. I couldn't find post regarding my issue, so I'm wondering if it's common and if there's a way to fix it. The following list shows how the dial works currently.

Other issue with my KR10 is that every roll has couple empty frames with a dot in the middle. Lens aperture blades seem to work fine.


1/1000 = X
1/500 = X

1/250 = 1/1000
1/125 = 1/500
1/60 = 1/250
1/30 = 1/125
1/15 = 1/60

1/8 = 1/30

1/4 = 1/15

1/2 = 1/8

1 = 1/4

2 = 1/2

4 = 1s

8 = 2s

16 = 4s

B = 8s
A = 16s
L = Bulb

Empty spot on dial = A

Hi, i'm new here! I'm shooting 35mm with Ricoh SLR. Came here to get help on fixing XR7 body with shutter dial issue. Usually I check Pentax forums to see if some specific lens is worth buying.
