I've seen all OM bodies with this problem and sometimes it's an easy fix,
other times it's caused by liquid damage, like coke dribbled on the camera
while around the users neck. Normal response "I would never dribble coke on
my camera" None the less, there it is.
If the damage is limited to counter area, a disassembly and wash in warm
soapy water will take it (and other sugar based liquids) right out.
Other times it gets into the rewind release assembly, the release shaft, asa
dial and on and on.

Subject: [OM] Q: OM2n exposure counter fixing ? (urgent)
| Question is somehow urgent, cause auction is closing in 10 hours.
| I think about buying a small package (OM2n and 1.4/50 late series)
| the lens is the one I want, the OM2n would be a nice add-on for
| me but seller tells me the exposure counter doesn't work (correctly ?).
| Saw this one in an auction, asked seller about condition of lens and body
| and seller tells me lens is like new and body is in nice condition
| (no marks, dents, electronic ok, etc) but this mentioned thingy
| with the exposure counter.
| Sent seller a 2nd mail but just in case he reads it after auction closed
| I'm asking here (don't need a defective body).
| What might cause this and is this a small repair job or
| might this get BER ?
| I'm asking because the whole package will be around $120, which I think
| is ok as long as the exposure counter problem is small or may
| even not really exist. Otherwise I will wait and look for
| another 1.4/50 for small $$, err DM at my place.
