Question about Photography
This camera was in storage for 2-3 years and when I tried to load film to it it refused to do it. The shutter also does not work. Batteries are brand new.
I noticed thta you gave a fix for the shutter but would the same solution solve the film loading problem?
Hi -- yes if you cannot advance the transport mechanism ( and so cannot load the film ) this is because shutter is not working ! This a very common problem and is due to leaking capacitor ( 220 microF ) situated on the botttom of the camera. Remove bottom cover and replace the capacitor . You should be able now to release shutter and load your film.
