I'll give you the name and address of the Canon Authorized Repair Facility in the Dallas area that you can send the camera to for repairs. Although it did fire and the shutter speeds were close enough. Although I managed to put it back on with some spray-glue which is removeable. Cleaning the whole mess will problably be more expensive then having the squeak resolved initially by someone who knows what to do and who's got all those special pliers. I will recieve it in a couple of days. These terms and conditions are subject to change at any time and without notice.

Just found the manuals a couple of minutes ago and for me the illustrations are rather confusing. The squeak is almost gone now but I'm afraid that the silicon could creep whereever else. I'll spend some more time looking into them and if I think I'm close to understanding the approach I'll get the right lubrication as indicated in the manual and do it whatever Lozoid 72090 is. Send the camera in now before you take it apart. Give him a ring and talk to him, I know you'll be satisfied with the results.
You may be able to fix the camera easily at home, or it may require more advanced work. I appreciate your replies and really wouldn't hesitate sending the camera in for an overhaul, but I'm located in germany and the costs for shipping, payment hassle and the period of time I'd have to wait for it to return. Funny thing is that pawn shop had it for over a year, the camera shop sold it in a week. In a minute, i'm going to go swimming; the neighbors really love me, honest! If you come here looking for something and don't find it listed at all, or you find that I don't have the manual that you need, I want to hear from you.

Thanks alot for your answers! Rather store your squeaky A-Series camera in a safe place and repair it whenever you have money, or provided you have money send it in to someone who can do it.

Terms and Conditions These terms and conditions contain rules about posting comments. The only repair shop I know in my area would send it in for an expensive overhaul, but I decided to take a look at it myself first, because I could get a nice used T-70 for the price they would charge.

If you have any of these manuals and would like to share them, please.
Thanks to Frank Johnson of San Francisco for providing this manual. I want to take some photos! He only specializes in A-series cameras.
