Question about Mamiya Photography
My light shield is stuck and the knob won't turn. Now I can't remove the lens. Is there some hidden place to press to simulate the shield being shut which will allow the lens to come off?
The lens has a lever marked A/M near the aperture ring. If the lever is in the 'A' position, the lens will stay wide open until you trip the control lever at the back of the lens next to the rear optics. In the 'M' setting, you can see the aperture move as you change the f-stop setting on the ring. Set the lens to anything but wide open and move the control lever with your finger. You should see that aperture move.

This happens with many cameras, whatever you do, do not force the lens back. You will see this as a suggestion on some blogs. Doing it might further damage the camera lens and other parts.
Here is a repair place that is very reliable: http://www.teleplancamerarepair.com/Olympus_FE_FE-370
WHen sending it in make sure you cushion it so it doesn't get worse when shipping.

Get a big scredriver and put it in the square in the middle of the mechanism and turn it till it opens, or you will just have to pry it out with the scredriver.

Your camera almost certainly has a lens error, this
is such a common fault that I hope you don't mind me pasting my stock
generic answer below. No point in reinventing the wheel!
Stuck lenses are probably the most common reason that compact digital cameras get thrown away, but there's a fair chance of recovering use of your camera again
The fault is commonly caused by dirt or grit blocking the mechanism, or due to it having suffered a recent fall. Another common cause is that the camera was in a pocket or bag and the power button accidentally activated and tried to open the lens against resistance. The mechanism may have simply become dislodged or there may be parts which have broken.
If your camera is still under warranty and has definitely not been subject to misuse then contact the Polaroid service department in your country to find out about a free repair. If the warranty has expired though a professional repair will far exceed the cost of replacing your camera. You will therefore have nothing to lose by trying to fix this yourself.
Please click here and you will be taken to an excellent article provided by the Camera Repair website. For the most part, you'll be guided on how to physically manipulate your camera to try and clear the fault. Although the article mentions Canon a few times, the advice applies equally to all cameras with lens errors and is not model-specific.

Good luck, I hope you manage to use this information to fix your camera, or at least are able to use the information to help decide whether to buy another camera.

It sounds like your grill may have a glo plug type of ignition system if there is a light inside the grill instead of a spark to light each burner. If your grill is hard wired to the house elelctrical, it may be that a breaker is tripped and the power is not getting to the glo plug and the grill us using a battery back up to try and light the grill. The batterys do not last long, and when they get weak, the plug will glow, but not hot enough to light the grill. The other possibility is that you have a short, or some other problem, that is preventing enough voltage to reach the glo plug, the plug will glow, but not hot enough to light the grill.
