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.
