Film-advance warning won't go away on a RB67 Pro SD 120 film back?

Hello there. I've loaded a roll of 120 film correctly into the Pro SD back, aligned the arrow on the film with the arrow inside the back, closed the film back up and wound on until the exposure counter reached 1, Correct right?, though from what I've read the red "film-advance warning" should disappear at this stage, and yet it hasn't in my case, its still there and the exposure counter is on 1. I haven't taken any shots yet as i am unsure if the film is loaded correctly or the film back is faulty.What should I do? Any guidance would be much appreciated.

SOURCE: Pro-S film back doesn't advance film properly.

There is good chance that the back needs a spring replaced. I've seen them fail many times.

Mamiya RB67 Pro S: film counter does not advance, but the film does advance purchase another back same problem. Is there a switch that I'm missing??


If the problem is on the magazine's counter and if the spacing of frames is correct then the counter dial is loose. two screws on the outside front of the top of magazine, two screws in the film chamber hold the top cover. remove leather cover on winding lever loosen screw and remove. you can then remove the complete top housing to expose the counter mechanism.

Why is my canon ae-1 only developing blank film


First thing I would do is sacrifice a roll of film. Load the film as you have been. Then with the back open and tension on the film (do not touch the film over the shutter, advance the film. It may be that you are putting the film on the takeup spool incorrectly. Watch how the film advances on the spool. If it is on the spool incorrectly it will disconnect then not advance. If that does not work it may be a errant takeup spool.

If your film was TOTALLY blank then it's been bleached due to a processing error. By totally blank, I mean that there are no frame numbers or other film markings on your blank film. Otherwise, you simply have an unexposed film.

First, operate the camera with the camera back open, hold the camera up to a bright light and operate the camera as you look into the back of the lens. If you see a brief bit of light coming through as you operate the shutter then the shutter is admitting light into the camera and so you should have got some kind of an image unless you failed to correctly load the film (very common).

Unfortunately, there's no way to tell unless you try another roll of film. Once the film is loaded, turn the rewind crank gently to take up slack film and take a few pictures; each time you advance the film the rewind crank should turn a little. If it doesn't then the film has not been correctly loaded as the film leader has not engaged onto the take-up spool. If so, open the camera and re-engage the film. If it clearly has engaged, then the take-up spool is failing to rotate when the film is advanced: try taking a few shots and winding on the film with the back open. If the film is not advancing then you have a faulty Lomo. This is extremely common as it is a plastic toy camera with atrocious build quality and materials and is the FishEye is only designed for paltry ten rolls of film lifespan.

A final check for film which has not advanced through the camera is if the rewind is extremely short when the film has finished.

Sounds like the film has come loose. Either it's not properly loaded or it has cut. Try to open the camera in a dark room and feel your way thru the inside of the film track to assure the situation.

My Mamiya RB67 triggers and shutter lease lever works but film advance lever doesn't move. Trigger button fired several times but film advance still showing 1.


This is not the best solution as it indicates a faulty film back. The film should advance without resorting to activating the film-wind release lever. That is only for intentionally advancing a partially exposed roll of film. Make sure the multi-exposure lever is not engaged and that the counter does advance and the red mark disappears as you advance to an unexposed frame.

Shutter will not trigger when film back is attached, only when it is off


Did you made sure the dark slide was removed? Check to see that the firing pins on the camera back are coming through the revolving bracket okay and that they are engaging the pin on the film back (left side). Is there film loaded? You can check without film if you have the multi-exposure lever engaged (red spot visible) and dark slide pulled out.

Mamiya RB67 ProS wont trigger or advance


Start by making sure the dark slide is removed, the camera will not fire with it in place. The next step is to check the rotating back to make sure it is locked in either the vertical or horizontal position. Without film in the magazine, the multi-exp lever on the back must be set to show the red dot under the advance lever. You can check the camera without the back by removing the rotating back using the latch on the bottom of the camera

Film won't advance


Perhaps you've already solved the mystery. There are 2 parts to the back of that camera, the film back + the part that it slips onto. And they have little safety latches/pins that couple in order to advance the film & release the shutter. I'm sure those just aren't in the right place. Here in Los Angeles you could take it to any major camera store or repair shop & they've help you out.
