You may be able to pull it gently out (at your own risk) until it re-engages with the helical.

For a vintage camera such as this, I would suggest a specialist repair facility, not a DIY repair.

  • Aperture problems on this lens are normally caused by grease on the diaphragm blades. The only solution is to dismantle from the back. When the iris is exposed wipe over with lint free cloth or cotton buds with a small drop of solvent such as lightr fuel or meths. Wipe over with a dry cloth afterwards. Get used to how to dismantle and reassemble the lens, you might have to do this more than once.

Hey Dan,

You could try resetting the unit to factory settings and then see if your desired settings will hold.

Resetting the unit to the status at the time of shipment with the following procedure. If you reset the unit status, your preferences will be reset to the defaults. Note: Write down your current settings before starting reset.

How to reset

  1. While holding down CBL/SAT on the main unit (note that step 2 must be performed with this button pressed down)
  2. Press ON/STANDBY on the unit. "Clear" will appear on the display and the unit will enter standby mode.
This an more information can be found here:
