SOURCE: shutter stays open on mamiya 645 M

Get any crud from the battery out of the works with pH-neutral stuff and q-tips or lint-free towels, and see if it works (without film; might as well check current drain with a bench supply instead of a battery, too) once you've done a satisfactory job of that.  Then visit a shop so they can see if the shutter timing is tolerable...and perhaps sometime you can load film in again.

SOURCE: Mamiya M645j film counter not advancing to start when roll loaded

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.

SOURCE: My Mamiya RB67 triggers and shutter lease lever

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.

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.

SOURCE: I bought a second hand Mamiya 645 Af but as soon

From the manual:
"If the error display is not canceled when the shutter release button is pressed again, insert the Dark slide, half-press the shutter release button while pressing the roll film holder's manual film advance button to wind up the film, then contact your nearest Mamiya agent or service center."

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.

Hello. I just got a Mamiya C330, looks really nice but I note that the little release botton in front of the camera is inside I can;t take it out. my question is this could affect to take picture or I...


This button you speak of is an alternate way of depressing the shutter it is also a way in which you can use a shutter release cord to take pictures. the button itself is not meant to come out of the camera. Once you load your film or 2 empty film spools (to test to see if the camera is working properly) into the camera and wind the film crank then you will be able to depress that button and fire the shutter.

I seem unable to open the film back to my Mamiya C330 TLR! How do you do this? Also the trigger button is permanently in. Why is this?


Face the camera away from you so that you are looking at the film back there should be a circular button at the top center just below the view screen look at that, on it should be a little red dot this dot should be facing straight up it it is not then turn the dial so that it is. then you should look just above that and you'll notice an arrow pointing to the right that is the direction in which you need to push the dial so that the film door opens. It should pop open, if not then you need to push the dial to the right and at the same time gently pull out. this should do the trick.

And please get yourself a manual for this camera!! happy shooting.

My Mamiya C330 Pro only gives me 4 photos per roll


A few things to consider:
-Loading: Make sure you are not over loading the film before you start to shoot. I have sometimes turned the film advance too many times and end up cutting down on the amount of usable film.
-Are you loading the film in a dark area and careful to close up the back just after it has started to load to avoid exposing it?
-Shooting: Are you metering properly when shooting? Obviously underexposed images won't develop. You should consider a hand held meter.
-Shooting: Are you advancing the film more than it needs to be after you take your shot? Watch the film counter and feel for that click as it hits the next frame. I have advanced past the next shot many times by accident.
Hope that helps, Matt

Lost the battery plug for a mamiya 1000s camera. It is a threaded plug.


Nice camera! Do you mean the battery housing cover plate? It should swing open like a small door when you press the cover latch.

If you are referring to the circular threaded hole on the bottom of the camera body, it is actually the attachment point for a tripod mounting plate. Mounting the camera is optional- no need to have anything screwed in here. Load film, load battery, advance film with the crank arm, and shoot away! Have fun.

Here's a link to the user manual with illustrations:
