Chinon 612 XL: Repair
How to disassemble this movie camera
I’ve opened it. It’s actually not that difficult, and you don’t have to do anything with the lens. However there are many tiny screws:
Two on the bottom on the tripod mount.
Two black screws inside the film chamber under the “text-plate”, close to the door.
Four on top under a metal plate on “tripod\lamp” mount.
Two in front under the “Chinon”-text plate.
One underneath the light bulb sign on the filter switch.
And one bigger under the “lock\Release” sign – Small spring and ball here- careful.
Also unscrew that ring that screws the remote control jack to the body.
I think that’s all of them.
