Super Ikonta 530/2 B Speed setting not working. ClAing camera.
Have removed front amd cleaned lens front and back including front middle lens. Cannot clean back of middle lens due to B shutter speed not working. All other shutter speeds appear to work fine. Remove front name ring, focus prism plate and clean gearing, oiling and greasing for coupled range finder. Every thing appears to work fine. Have begun to remove top plate. All parts needing removeing have been done excepting film winding pin. Seems to be somewhat different from David Richert site repairs. No pin as such. Just a screw which doesn't want to come out before I can remove top. Rangefinder rear sight glass remove. Am at a stand still.
How can I get the shutter to open on the B shutter setting to get to the back of the middle glass. All other shutter speeds, including 1 sec. and rangefinder appears to work properly.
Once top off, how do I proceed to replace the mirror in viewfinder. Inside are appears to need cleaning. Couldn't find instructions on Internet. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Anxious to use camera.

Buy a lens pen and carefully clean the lens yourself. it will set you back about 10 dollar. If you never removed the lens form your camera, it is only the front lens you need to clean. Don't use any fluid, unless it says social for photo camera lenses. If you scratched the lens, no way it can be cleaned or repaired it. It would be cheaper to buy a new lens.
A couple of things First if batteries were left in the camera the contact surface down inside the camera may be corroded and need cleaning check this with a flashlight. If the battery contact is dark black then it might require some aggressive cleaning. What I use is a piece of light sandpaper formed over a pencil and taped to it set it down inside and spin it lightly to remove as much of the black stuff as possible a Qtip and alcohol will clean out the dust and other partials. Clean off the battery door and clean off the batteries (because you had them in the camera) install the batteries again. If it comes on and works great if it come on but doesn't work correctly then you need to work the camera in.
Working the camera in by turning everything to manual mode including the lens set the ISO speed at 100 aperture 1 stop down from wide open. Set your shutter speed at 1/125 and release the shutter do this three time, set at 1/250 and do it again three times then set to 1/500 and do it three times and again until you reach the cameras fastest shutter speed then back down again. Listen to the sound of the shutter you should hear it increase and decrease in speed. In fact the more you use it the better it will sound.
Well it's just because of lens errors, they are very common in these digital cameras. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism.
Follow the below steps to do a try to correct it - 1. Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh (or new) set of batteries back in and turn the camera on. If that didn't work, try pressing and holding the Function or OK button while turning the camera on. 2. Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens. Other variations include blowing with a hair dryer in “no heat” setting, or sucking the gaps with a vacuum (careful with this one). 3. Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to autofocus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins back into their slots. If further you have the same problem it means there is a gear-motor alignment of the lens which moves in and out with the help of motor. This part is replaceable at an authorized Samsung Service Center. Aprox repair cost is $120.
it may not be compatable with digtal camers to test set camera to AV
get a iris of F22 using the stopdpwn button see if it stops down if yes
it is compatable but faulty if nothing it not compat and need rechiping
