I recently purchased a B&H 240EE and I was wondering if anyone knows how to correctly lubricate this camera. My camera is stuck, meaning that the spring is wound and will not unwind. The camera did come with the instruction manual, but the manual only says to take it to an authorized repair shop. I think I'm about 50 years to late for that.
If anyone has experienced an issue like this with their 240EE I'd appreciate some advice on how to remedy this situation. I already own a 240EE which I love and it would be nice to have a spare.
Thanks for your help. If you need any more info about the camera please let me know.

Pictures are always helpful. Sounds like it's either overwound or the release for the clockworks motor is working. Did it ever work properly and this is a new issue? My first though is take it to a clock repair that specializes in antique clocks. That person may not be familiar with cameras but will be familiar with spring driven mechanisms.
