Question about Mamiya 645 Medium Format Camera
I have an M645j that's having a problem where the film counter does not automatically advance back to the start when a new film cartridge is loaded.
I've heard that it could be a spring somewhere that's not working right, and the film counter otherwise works fine when I wind the gear back to the start with my finger manually.
How can this be fixed? Thanks
It's a common problem in the 645 - if you want to do it yourself, without a permanent fix, put a DROP ( not a lot ) of lighter fluid, or rubbing alcohol on the tip of a fine screwdriver and apply it to the gear you use to rewind the camera, and turn back and forth a few times. If that doesn't loosen it, it'll have to be disassembled.
