Beseler Topcon Super D with jammed advance/stuck mirror

Discussion in 'Classic Manual Cameras' started by skillinger, Oct 8, 2018.

  1. Greetings everyone,

    I was hoping someone could help me get a hold of a service manual for the Topcon Super D. I've been offered one at a fair price but it has a jammed advance and mirror stuck in the up position. I can't be there with the seller to test it out but I'm hoping that if I had the manual I could see if it's listed as a fixable problem.

    If anyone has a service manual or any advice to share on this problem I'd be most appreciative.

    Thanks so much and best regards
  2. You'll have to check the lists yourself, but Butkus does have Topcon manuals: BESELER Camera Manual

    I wouldn't expect that they would be lot of help in repair.

    I think the US Navy used Topcons for a while (for the Exakta mount) and there might be a service manual somehow in their files, etc.
  3. I have the copy of the Super D (71A) service manual that used to be available free online. I'd upload it here, but it's not a JPEG, and the new (brain-dead) won't let me upload a PDF file! Use the contact a member function and I'll e-mail it to you.

    The timing of the gears and interlocks on the bottom of the camera is fidgety.
