Hi again Craig, I just had a proper look at the camera and can see 3 tears in the screen with tiny pinholes in them, I'm guessing the mechanism jammed and ripped or something sometime. I reckon I can fix it, I'll do a bit of reading to see how, do you have any ideas though? The holes are tiny, this may sound totally daft but I reckon a tiny amount of acrylic paint might create a seal to cover them. Thanks, David
Hey there — I found the following info. http://www.camerasandfilm.com/archives/218
it suggests using liquid tape, never heard of it —- but it’s out there.
