201F with problems in focal plane shutter


New Member
I have a 201F with the problem that the focal plane shutter hangs if I use times longer that 1/60 second. The shutter leaves than just open. To close shutter I have to set the C setting. Also I can use the Camera like a 500 model just using the compur shutter. For me it looks like an electronic problem because the mechanical stuff seams working. Does anyone also have or had such a problem? What can I do? How much could such a repair cost?
Any answer would be welcome.
Thanks in advance Fitzner2
