Re: 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

Mamiya 645 AF back won't advance film.

The battery in the film back is only used to supply power when the back is off the camera, when it is on the body power is supplied by the six batteries in the body so try them and also make sure the film insert is properly seated.

Hi there, my pro-sd 120 rfh has stopped winding on film. the lever just spins freely with no resistance. I am wary about opening it up in case any tiny springs go walkabout. can anyone advise me, or even...

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.

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.

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.

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.
