Any suggestions on how to repair
  1. I'm new to these cameras and came across this Ricoh GR iii. Does anyone have any experience with the lens curtain not closing? It opens just fine but doesn't close.

Re: Any suggestions on how to repair

With another brand of camera what I had to do once was clean off where the "blades" go when open. I did using a Q tip and wet with alcohol. I was careful not to touch the lens. I would gently try this when open and closed if you can get them to.

Try tapping delicately on the rim, both in open and what should be closed position. The mechanism is completely mechanical, so it's most probably dust or particles.
