Cheers Humayan. I hope you dont. But I believe that the problem was mostly solved with later cameras.

I originally checked the yahoo SBIG group and here Bert and that was the info I got as well, "should be fine in a day or two". But even after a week there was no difference, the camera would frost up.

Part of the initial problem was the large rubber ring under the front plate wasn't seated in its groove properly and part of the ring was protruding into the chamber so air could get in and out. So that every time I chilled the camera it would suck fresh air in as the internal volume of air would decrease due to reduced temp. I was sent some new rings and it didn't fix the problem. I'm really hoping this is a permanent fix.
