    Angry Ricoh GXR Viewfinder problem

    Hello Guys,

    I remember from a long time ago someone had the same problem as I am having now but I could not find the thread anymore.

    By putting the camera in the back the viewfinder turned up more then 90 degrees and now I can't fold it down anymore without cracking anything.
    Does anyone remember or know a solution to this?

    It looks like it went to far and can't click back anymore into the little grooves.

    Michiel

    Sounds like some plastic protrusion inside is holding it up. Open it up to push it back in position (without touching any electrical contacts) and close it back on again.

    There are 4 little screws. I will try it.

    I did it and it is fixed! I just needed that little push to open things up

    Thanks vivek!
