My Leica has been giving me problems. Again. I think this might actually be due to a sub-par repair done many moons ago. And that cost me almost 300 bucks altogether. I hate to have to shell out another couple more to get this fixed, but I really like this camera! Urgh~!

Update: I think I may have found the problem.  The camera had a poorly stuck-on light seal after my first CLA, and it was in fact sent back to be re-glued.  Turns out the second fix was also not done properly.  So the light seal was beginning to peel off.  Lacking the tools to open up the camera, I just applied some glue to the seal while holding the shutter open for ~ 16 hours.  Now it looks pretty good.  Let’s see how long this will last!
