Thanks for the suggestions. Unfortunately, I think it is a larger problem than the screws; the dial spins freely and the shutter seems stuck on a 1/2 second exposure.

Lots of service stores in Japan, but the store will probably take it back since I just bought it and haven't been able to shoot it once. Too bad; I wanted to use it on vacation and probably should have tested it before I left...

I have a question peripherally related to this thread. I was using a Pentax 6x7 for years, but then I began to experience problems with the film advance. It increasingly wouldn't advance the film completely, or at all, resulting in multiple exposure shots. I took it in for repairs, but the camera store said the parts were not available and it couldn't be repaired (I live in Yokohama-Tokyo area, and there are countless shops that sell and can service old cameras).

I recently got a Pentax 67 body and brought it all the way to San Francisco to shoot while on vacation, but just suddenly noticed that the shutter speed dial is extremely loose. There are no clicks when you turn it, nothing to keep it in place. It will actually spin if I give it a spin. It appears, however, that it is still functioning; when I take a light reading and turn the dial, the needle moves consistent with what the shutter speed indicates... still, if possible, I'm wondering if there is a way to 'fix' this shutter speed dial so that it stays firmly in place.

Thanks for your help,
