Minilux Shutter Dead

This is turning into a never ending story. The shutter of my minilux died today. I was in the middle of a roll when all I got was some stuttering and bad sounds from the camera. The LCD just gave me a blinking E02. I thought it might be the film transport at first, but as it turns out it was the shutter. I will need to send the camera back to Leica-Service, which is in New Jersey. The cost will probably be around $200. At least this is what other users paid. I will soon need to place a donation button on this site. The long time readers of this Blog will know that my original Minilux was lost/stolen. The camera I have now is a replacement I bought via eBay. Who knows if the previous owner had the same problems and if this is the reason why he got rid of the camera. I am going to send it in now. Oh well...
