Well, I've had my new 14" Kodak Commercial Ektar for two weeks. I haven't even done tests with it yet. When I bought it, I noticed that once (out of about fifty tries), the shutter didn't fire. It's an Ilex No. 5 Universal Synchro. The type made for Kodak.
This afternoon, I tried it, nothing. I've tried firing it about twenty times, it only fired once. Hoping not to do any more damage, I haven't tried any more. It wouldn't fire at any speeds. All it does is click, but it sounds like the drive isnt being engaged.
Any ideas? I don't have a whole lot of money. I'll try it tomorrow and see if time fixes it (hey, i usually get lucky that way). Any ideas of a source of a used shutter?
