I had a problem with my arri 35-3, the camera runs but sometimes when the i turn off the switch, the shutter do not stop in the right position. Then if i want to switch on the camera, then it doesn´t run. I need to move the shutter (and then the shutter runs itself around 300-360 degree) and the camera runs again (when I switch on, of course). Sometimes I need to move the shutter twice or more to the camera runs again.
I would be happy to know if is a common issue with arri 35-3 cameras and if it is a expensive repair.

Thanks in advance

hi
what is sure is that it's NOT a comon issue
first thing will be to chek is the timing of your camera is still good :
point the camera to a tv set and watch the bar scrolling down on a video monitor
if it scrolls with regularity it means your timing is goog.

the problem shoold be around the miror mechanism

when you stop the camera the mirror should close so you can see a image on the viewfinder


good luck but you should take the body to a rental house anyway
