There was a guy in Los Angeles who "repairs" motors.. Duall claims to
repair but they actually just steal your money. I spent a year and
$1200 trying to get the motor repaired/ writing to forums etc.,
shipping the camera to Los Angeles, working with Duall in NYC.. In
the end, I ended up with a stolen motor (so I was told) that squeaked
and a worthless camera.
When Eclair NPR camera were built, they did not release the specs for
the motor or circuitry board. There are people who can cobble them
together- but after a year, I was unable to locate an honest mechanic.
It is a shame- the cameras are affordable and quite nice (when they work).
