I was told that the camera is tested and in-working condition. However, after the camera stopped working (the shutter button won't push and the viewfinder is black), I got the camera checked out. It turns out that the shutter curtain was jammed and ev

Answers:

You can ask for anything. BTW, you buy, sell, & return products from ebay members, NOT ebay. No one here can help you directly. Contact the seller.

Probably not. Most stuff sold through ebay is "as is." Since the camera was working when you received it, there's probably no recourse. You can still try to contact the seller but I'm guessing you're out of luck.

If it was a private treaty sale then unless the seller’s listing said there was a warranty then the goods are sold as seen and described.

So if the camera arrived working and as described it’s not the seller' responsibility if the camera breaks down straight afterwards.

Now that there has been some delay between you receiving the camera and because someone else has now had a fiddle with it, you’ve blown your chances even if it was a sale from a trader. You should have contacted the seller immediately when you realised there was a fault. Although not obliged to do so, some private sellers do stand by what they sell and so may have offered a refund after you had returned the goods.

I don't think you'll get anywhere as the camera worked OK when you received it. Old mechanical devices are of course highly prone to breaking down.
So ask the vendor for a refund, and if they choose to refuse, then down-rate them on the site.

You'd just as well get your next camera used from a thrift store. Take along an old roll of film and run it through the camera making sure the shutter and mirror lock/unlock still work. 24 cycles of that should indicate if it works or not. Make sure the aperture opens and closes and that and DOF button also opens it from stopped down.

Chances are there are no warranties or returns for used cameras but you can always try. Ask the seller.

It depends what it said in the listing about the camera. Without knowing that, we cannot help you. But chances are, you are stuck with it.
