Why won't the camera shutter release in my Minolta SRT SC-II camera?
The film advance lever seems to have been fully cycled and is at its normal rest position. Pushing shuttter button by hand and by cable does not cause the shutter to activate. There is no film in the camera now. Removed the bottom cover and could not locate any issues, Moved the two visible ratchet hooks clear of the Pawls and tried both advance and shutter with no luck. Expect that the shutter needs to be fired before the film advance lever is free.
Advice on where to look and what to look for? If I need to go super deep into the works I'll probably give up on it.
Is this a good question?
