Subject: [Leica] .......need help on minilux error code......

I have 2 miniluxes.  One of them had to go back to have the whole
shutter unit changed, twice.
It might have been a matter of coincidence - both times the malfunction
& error code of E01(orE02? I forgot) were set off by my mistakenly using
it under rather strong sunlight while 3200 film was inside the camera.

Had the same issue last Summer while on holiday. First E01, then
followed by E02.
It turned out to be a shutter failure, Leica Solms had to replace the
whole shutter unit.
It seems to be one of the most common issues with the Minilux (don't
know about the Minilux Zoom), whenever it develops a fault (not very
frequent in any case).
Such operation costs in the region of 200 euros. Not cheap, but given
the value of the camera not unreasonable.
