Your camera shutter is mainly mechanic with only an electric winding control, for the rest the fault does not seem to be a logic problem.
You need to take apart the camera Follow instructions here on how to disassemble the camera to access the winder.
The user on the website was fixing a similar problem on a jammed winder, and found out that a small tab was missing.

I'm going to have to agree with short shadey, and say take it in for servicing. I've been in one of these before, and the extremely small gears have even smaller pivot pins they ride on. These pins are plastic, which doesn't help matters at all, and they have a tenancy to slip out slightly and jam up, especially if the camera was jarred or bumped around. You would be surprised at how slight the jarring can be in order for the gear to jump out.

Yes and you also need the redirect the pizeo cystal for the bunitier to reactuate and reformatize i read this in Maanita's book of wishfull thinking lol, its so funny the answers these people give out to try and win your vote to make a quick buck.... i would go ahead and filldle with the lever, sounds like it may have stripped a small gear or something to that effect, it would save you a headache to drop it off at a camera shop and they could possibly fix it on the spot for you, they are pretty reasonable on pricing as well good luck -jeff

    you need to release the static energy accumulated in the components of the mainboard
    for that you need to remove the battery and then hold down the power button for 60 seconds and then release. that should take care of the issue.

Blank roll of film


Two possible problems:

1. Film did not wind on. 2. Shutter not opening.

Easy to test with camera back open. Load a film and fire the shutter a few times each time with winding on, to see if film is winding correctly, at the same time you should be able notice if the shutters are firing, eight of them in succession makes a bit of noise.

My Praktica LLC mirror locks up and won't return. The shutter stays open partly or fully.


do you have exact model - this maybe bulb which allows the shutter to stay open for as long as the shutter release is pressed - or mirror lock setting - for macro work to avoid any camera shake when the mirror moves - by locking the mirror

35mm slr praktica bca shutter problem.


1) Open the top cover.
2) On the film advance gear, the shutter winding lever is attached to it.
It has screw adjustment there. Unscrew the screw ( not all the way out ) You will need to adjust the wind travel and make the length of the wind lever ( made of spring steel) shorter and tighten the screw.

Wind / shutter issue (2nd try to post)


It sounds like there is a problem with the frame counter in the film back itself. Try operating the camera with the back removed and on multi-exp to check the shutter functions.
