How to Maybe Repair a LOMO LC-A


Just in case you have an old LOMO LC-A just lying around at home, maybe you had the same problem as I do. Here’s how to maybe repair the shutter of a LC-A!

At the moment I am a quite lazy writer, so it’ll be a very short tipster tip. A short while ago i bought myself a LOMO LC-A at a fleamarket. After shooting about 60 pictures, i recognized that the shutter is broken (ger. im Arsch). So I wrote to the Lomo-support, but they told me that there is no engineer who could fix this problem, so I decided to do it my way. I started to disassemble the camera.

Then i reached a point where everything seems hopeless, so i started to set the pieces together again.
Suddenly i discovered the PROBLEM!! {dum dum duuuum}

This cable was wedged!! So i put the cable a bit on the side..bottom on..READY to SHOOT!!!!

    what you mean with "the shutter is broken"? blades don't open? I have an old lca that randomly miss to open the shutter and it came with some blank shots.

    For anyone in the UK, there's a guy that fixes LC-As. The Lomo London stores have his details. Just got mine back from his with a list of what he's repaired. This weekend I'm dropping off some films I shot on it at festival, so we'll see how well they come out :)
