Epson R-D1 strip down: Step 3

Total strip down

The shutter in this Epson R-D1 failed and would not cock, but Steve’s Camera Service Center in the United States was able to repair it: The camera is now working perfectly. The failure was mechanical, and no parts were required.

The photographs are actually in reverse order—they are of assembly, not disassembly—but I thought it would be more helpful shown this way.

Do not attempt to perform any operation on your Epson R-D1 unless you are comfortable with the procedure(s). Please read the disclaimer.

Many thanks to Jonas Yip, the owner of this camera, and Steve’s Camera Service Center where the photos were taken and the camera successfully repaired.
