Shutter replacement on NX500
My NX500 had a shutter that was mechanically blocked so I ordered a new shutter assembly and a service manual from Samsungparts.
The replacement procedure was much easier than I anticipated as the NX500 has a well designed modular build. The service manual contains dissassembly instructions and there is also an excellent instruction on www.ifixit.com. Only about 20 tiny screws to remove and a few flatcables to disconnect. After 2 hours the camera was working as before!
Total cost is USD 72 for the shutter assy, USD 12 for the service manual, USD 26,39 shipping to Netherlands and about USD 18,00 import duties. Total cost USD 128.
