I have recently acquired a Yashica TL-Electro film camera. Unfortunately, there are two problems with it.
First one is that on very slow shutter speeds (1 second - 1/30 second) the mirror gets locked up, and the shutter seems to be stopping before completing its travel. On medium speeds (1/60 second - 1/250 second) it works every other time (repeatedly, locks up once, works once). On high speeds (1/500 second and 1/1000 second) and bulb mode the shutter works perfectly - no mirror lock-ups, shutter completes its travel every time.
The second problem (though most likely just a 'cosmetic' one) is that the number plate on the shutter speed dial is a bit misaligned with the mark on the camera body - when I set the mechanism to bulb mode, the mark points almost at the ISO window in the plate; when it's set to 1s, it points at between B and 1, closer to B.
Is there a service manual for this camera? Or any guide/tutorial on how to perform a CLA on it? Or at least some pictures on how to take the camera apart, and put it back into one piece?
There aren't any repair shops here that would even attempt trying to fix that (not to mention the fact that it would certainly cost more than the camera is worth).
