    I have a problem with one of my blinds. Its on a German import and its the Tabbert. The flyscrean is working OK but the night blind has completley lost tension. Have taken the internal frame out and on the tension end there seems no resistance at all. Does this mean there is a spring inside and if so will it have broken.

    if it went suddenly i would say the spring has broken...or the small blade which slots in a groove in the end cap when the correct tension is achieved

    If the spring isnt broken take the blind off and unwind all the fabric so you can see the cylinder now using both hands roll the fabric back up this should help retention your blind if spring is ok.
