Leica m6 film stuck, I think

Today I took some pictures  with Leica M6 and wanted to remove film without finishing the film so tried to wind on.  Problem, I fear, cannot do anything now, film not rewound and cannot take it forward either.

Film still on 'teeth'.but nothing happening.  Have tried nothing else but am worried that I have a big problem.


Help gratefully received.

Re: leica m6 film stuck, I think

Did you mean you wanted to unload the unfinished film?
What you did then? be more clear and specific about the procedures before I can give you suggestions.

My husband has a 35 mm Leica drp ernst leitz wetzlar with brown case and screw. The body, serial number 336781, is black and a silver colour (chrome I presume) with a screw in lense. The lense, serial...

Without more information or photos it's pretty much impossible to even guess. But, it could be anything between a Leica and a Leica III, produced anywhere between 1925 and 1954. Only features and model-specific numbers engraved on the camera would tell the full story - serial numbers don't give much information to anybody but the factory.

Film advance shows double exposures and spacing problems. What is the problem?

The film advance mechanism is broken.

Given the very high value of your camera it's definitely not a DIY repair. Although a professional repair will not be cheap, it will definitely make economic sense compared to the cost of replacing your M6, so send it to your nearest official Leica servicing agent.

Looking for a lens adaptor to allow 39mm screw lens to fit an M2 camera body

You just need a Leica M to Leica screw adapter. Note that this will be different to the adapter you need if you want to use non-Leica 39mm screw thread lenses as the thread pitch is different.

There are various suppliers but you can find the information you need here and here. The links are for convenience only and not a personal recommendation of any supplier.

Hope this helps, if not then please add a comment and I'll offer further assistance. Otherwise please take a moment to rate my answer.

Where can I get various problems with my Leica C11 repaired or overhauled? Basically, it need a new rubberized back panel (chemical damage?) and the zoom is sluggish or stuck much of the time. I love this...

Hi David, thanks for the extra info.

In that case, the best place by far for your particular camera is Leica's own service centre in Germany.

The C11 sold in such tiny numbers for such a brief time that even Leica themselves may have trouble replacing the rubberised back panel with an original part, but if anyone does have the ability to locate the part it's them. The other problem is that the original part was clearly an unstable compound, so spares may have degraded as well or may soon start to degrade once fitted to your camera. Leica would normally have revised this part once they were aware, but as there are so few C11's in existence the retooling costs would be uneconomical to remanufacture the part.

Good luck, and I sincerely hope that I'm proved wrong!.

so advance the lever, bring it back and advance again.

I can't say whether your specific camera / lens combination will work, but bear in mind all teleconverters result in some loss of image sharpness (especially 2X models.) You will also lose about 2 stops of light.

Sigh... There's just no real alternative for big, fast glass :-)
