I have an hardly used F4 and the camera back lock lever has a nice firm spring resistance.
With the camera facing down, when I pull the lever the back jumps up about 3/4".
When I close the back it clunks shut and has no play at all (my last F4s had some give when you pressed the back with it shut).
Hope this information helps!

thanks! the back does "jump" up about 3/4" when opened. I have determined, with Kilted_F3_nut's help, that the spring on the back lock lever has come off. Everything works, just no spring tension!
on my to fix list, but using the camera is much higher on the list!
