Re: Need help with S3 pro

On that last image the lever is definitely askew. On my Nikon FM2 the aperture shut-down lever looks like this.

Many moons ago I was in a company photo unit with absolutely no budget for new kit. Our Nikon F was getting a bit elderly and eventually had the same symptoms as you describe. That lever was bent, so I took the camera to a dealer, who 'certified' that it was beyond economic repair, which meant that, within the company rules, we could get it replaced.

Once the new camera was in our hands I took a pair of needle-nosed pliers and twisted the 'beyond repair' lever straight. That camera kept working in the studio for at least another 4 years.

This is NOT advice, just an anecdote!
