Question about Leica M6 TTL .58 35mm Rangefinder Camera

1 Answer

Hello, I just bought a seconhand M6 TTL in very good condition form Leica Shop. Everything works fine, but whenever I **** the shutter, the lightmeter LEDS turn on and keep on until I relese the shutter or turn the speed dial to the off position. My question is, shouldn't the red LEDs of the lightmeter come on only when I press sliightly the shutter button and remain on for about 10 seconds? If so, do you think there is something wrong with the camera. Other than that, the camera seems to work perfectly. Thanks in advance Leo

A very fine camera they are and yes a problem has occured with your camera. Most likely the contacts are sticking. It may work itself out if use since it has been sitting around up for sale in that Leica shop

Film advance shows double exposures and spacing problems. What is the problem?


The film advance mechanism is broken.

Given the very high value of your camera it's definitely not a DIY repair. Although a professional repair will not be cheap, it will definitely make economic sense compared to the cost of replacing your M6, so send it to your nearest official Leica servicing agent.

Exposed film is stuck in the camera. Rewind crank won't budge and I'm not going to force it.


Hi,
If you need to save the pictures you will need to find a dark room and open the back to see what jammed up. Good Luck !!!!!!!!!

I can't say whether your specific camera / lens combination will work, but bear in mind all teleconverters result in some loss of image sharpness (especially 2X models.) You will also lose about 2 stops of light.

Sigh... There's just no real alternative for big, fast glass :-)
