Thank you all guys!

I will get the camera serviced or return it to the seller (depending on how complicated it is).

Cheers

Daniele

p.s. John, yes I did remove the dark slide :-P

Hi Daniele,

Did you test the body with another lens? Usually the problem is related to the lens, but sometime it is associated to the camera. If the cause is the camera it only needs a CLA (clean, lube and adjust) performed by a service center, definitely it will cost more than a new eBay body but at the end it will result in a well operating equipment instead to bet on getting another exhausted body. If the problem is the lens, definitely it is correlated to the Seiko shutter and the spare part is very expansive so it is better to looking for a new lens.

Daniele,

I was sure that you had! I myself have done such silly things, and often a post like this one will be read by countless others doing searches for similar problems. I thought it might be good for posterity to include the simple things in a post that most assuredly will be searched by someone suffering a similar problem.

Massimo,

Thanks for the advice. Although I found a shop (Camera Clinic in London) which offer and estimate for 10?, which seems reasonable.

John,

I did appreciated the advice about the dark slide! It took me about 10 minutes to get why the camera didn't shoot the first time i tried it :P

Thanks you all again, I really appreciate the help you provide to people!

Cheers
