Hilsen Tor,

Start by running through all the speeds, releasing the shutter ten times at
each speed. Now the shutter has had a good amount of exercise, and you have
eliminated the sticky lube variable. Now take it to a shop that has a
shutter speed testing machine. Have the man there check the speeds - this
should not cost much, and in some case may be free of charge. This should
uncover any obvious problems with curtain timing, and may help to diagnose
the problem by eliminating the obvious.
