CONTAX III
544/24
_FOR_
SALVAGE FOR PARTS / REPAIR ONLY
FIRST. THIS CAMERA (AND SOME OTHERS I WILL BE LISTING) CAME OUT OF A FILTHY, DANK BASEMENT.
SECOND. THIS IS A NON-RETURNABLE SALE. IF YOU BUY IT, IT'S YOURS.
I DON'T KNOW WHAT PARTS ARE DAMAGED / MISSING OR JUST SIMPLY NOT WORKING.
IF YOU PLAN ON GETTING IT FIXED OR DOING THIS YOURSELF & OPEN IT UP AND FIND SOMETHING
THAT WILL BE A HEADACHE TO REPAIR OR JUST NOT REPAIRED TO YOUR LIKING, SORRY. IT'S YOURS.
SO FOLKS, PLAN ON WORST CASE SCENARIO TO BE COMFORTABLE WITH BUYING THIS CAMERA.
FOR EXAMPLE: MAYBE PARTS ARE MISSING AND YOU MAY NEED TO
BUY ANOTHER CAMERA OR 2 FOR PARTS JUST TO REPAIR THIS ONE.
OR, MAYBE IT JUST CAN'T BE FIXED? YOU GET MY POINT.
I JUST WANT TO BE AS TRANSPARENT AS POSSIBLE WITH THIS.
THIRD. I OFFER 30 DAY RETURNS ON EVERYTHING I SELL BUT THIS WILL BE AN EXCEPTION.
READ MY FEEDBACK & VIEW ALL THE PICTURES BELOW OF THIS CAMERA IN ALL IT'S FAULTS.
FOURTH, PLEASE READ THE VERY DETAILED DESCRIPTION BELOW
VISIBLE / OBVIOUS PROBLEMS:
SHUTTER SPEEDS WON'T SET. THE SPEED THAT IT'S STUCK ON IS BEYOND SLOW.
METER IS DEAD AND WAS COMPLETELY UNRELIABLE TO BEGIN WITH.
THE LENS HAS A PIECE CUT OR BROKEN OFF THE RIM (SEE PICS)
THE LENS WILL NOT ATTACH TO THE CAMERA FULLY (IT WON'T LOCK)
I SUSPECT IT'S THE CAMERA MOUNT THAT'S THE ISSUE HERE.
THE LENS HAS FUNGUS, HAZE, CLEANING MARKS & GOD KNOWS WHAT ELSE.
THINGS THAT WORK:
