Contax 167mt. Flashing LED, Shutter not firing?

  1. Hi there,
    just wondered if someone could give me some advice on my Contax 167mt camera, which has a motor drive "power pack", for want of a better word, with a centered tripod thread attached. The LED window on the camera, ( which has new batteries inserted), constantly flashes and the shutter does not fire. any suggestions would be very welcome!!!

  2. I have a 167MT, but not the power pack, which I think will be the P5 battery holder. I assume this replaces the original baseplate with the off-centre tripod mount, and you don't have the original baseplate? If you do, I would just try that with AAA batteries. Have you tried the reset button? Unfortunately, it looks like the P5 can sometimes cause (irreversible?) problems:

  3. Hmm, mine does something similar but I’ve not tried the reset button, let me go try that.
