Sankyo 420 XL repair questions

Post by jaxshooter » Thu Aug 02, 2007 11:54 pm

A friend recently gave me a Sankyo 420 XL Supertronic camera.It's fine except the iris seems to be permanently stuck at F 2.8.Since I didn't pay anything for this camera and I really don't see it as worth putting money into,I'm considering attempting the repair myself.Does anyone have any experience with this and possibly have some repair advice?That is,besides using it as a paperweight.
