The XA2 was missing the bearing. I also cleaned the magnet contacts for the shutter but it still was not reliable so probably an IC chip problem..
Into the trash it went...
Elcud35rc: Yes it is worth checking the thrift stores for cameras but your more likely to find a Canonet than a Leica! My best finds have been in antique malls.
Found Rolleiflex, Rolleicords, lots of Canonets, etc.. Big Flea markets are also hot spots for me.
