Make sure you have good batteries and clean the battery cap with an eraser or alcohol in case there is any corossion from leaking batteries. This camera will not operate without battery power.

Shutter will not open and close. I know it needs cleaning. Need to find a repair service. I live in Eri, Pa.

first, remove batteries and clean battery cap and contacts including cap threads. with a pencil eraser. Turn all select knobs on top of camera 3 or 4 times back and forth. to remove any oxide build up on the contacts.
for repair service, any camera repair shop can clean your camera, and adjust systems. however there are no new parts for this model so if good used parts are needed it could be expensive.
