I've just bought a knock-off A7s plagued by the infamous 'Camera Error' - the camera allegedly was dropped and the status of (what's left) of the curtain tell it all.
Was thinking about giving a try by just obliterating all the mangled blades and trick the camera. Unfortunately the camera is smarter than me and didn't get tricked - although the noise it's clearly showing that the shutter mechanism at start-up is 'working'.
This was just a try while disassembly the camera for full-spectrum modification. Still I wonder why it's not working - possibly something else is broken in the shutter but hopefully not in the rest of the camera?
My question runs a bit technical. The shutter is a Copal AFE-3313 which is almost unobtainable whereas on some sites it looks like the AFE-3360 is much more available.
Can anybody confirm that?
On top of that I recall somebody trying to get rid of the IR leak her eon CN - was it that successful in the end?
Thanks in advance,
