Bronica ETRSI mirror doesn't slide up when 135W back is mounted

I have strange problem with 135W back on Bronica ETRSI. When 135W back is mounted on the body mirror doesn't slide up completelly(moves a few millimeters), therefore leaving film not exposed at all. 120 back on exactly same camera/lens combination works flawlessly. Anybody has an idea how to get it working? Can it be DYI repair? Here is thread @apug that explains problem tracking ''in progress''

Thanks in advance,
Igor

A. To attach the lens to the main body, align the red dots on the lens
and the main body and then insert the lens fully into its mount.
Rotate in the counter-clockwise direction until it stops, with an audible
click, which will indicate that it is securely locked.

Keep an eye on ebay as they appear on there occasionally. However, you can't always get exactly what you want and it took me a while before I could find a split image version. All you have to do then is win it!

Non availability of LR 44X4 battery for etrsi

They are still easily available online.

Here's one supplier that I regularly use. Even if the supplier is no use to you, you'll see the many other model numbers for the same battery.

Camera cocks but will not fire. New batteries

Is there film loaded? Bronica cameras feature an interlock that will prevent the camera from fully firin when not loaded, when no back attached, or when the dark slide is in the back. Some models have a small flip-switch that doubles as a double-exposure switch on the side that can be used to dummy fire the camera to test fire it.

If that doesn't work, consult a tech. The electronic's in these cameras go bad qute often these days.

Hi, I have a set of

Sorry Sam, but there isn't one. I just shoot on transparencies (Fuji Velvia 100) and then scan them to obtain digital images.

Transparency film isn't cheap, and even less so with wasted shots, but it's still cheaper than the

Re-assembly of 99 Blazer mirror to windshield

This is a relatively easy task, the bulk of the work has been for you. The rear view mirror assembly simply slides onto that metal block that was glued to your windshield. Your mirror mount (the part that slides onto the metal bracket) may be cut differently or shaped different from the rest of that part. you simply need to line that up with the metal mount on your windshield. slide the mirror on and tighten down the set screw if you have one. I've listed the steps below

1. find the base mount for your mirror (this is the bottom of the mirror that sits on the windshield)

2. look for a cut out or flat part of the mirror base.

3. line the flat part of the mirror base with the metal mount bracket on the windshield.

4. slide the mirror onto the metal bracket (this may require you to wiggle while you slide the mirror onto the metal bracket).

5. tighten the set screw on the mirror base ( this is important because your mirror will vibrate off the bracket if you don't.

Note some mirrors slide from the bottom of metal mount bracket and some slide from the top. it sort of depends on the manufacturer and/or the way the bracket was installed.

Hope this helps

Which 120 backs & lenses for my ETRSi do I buy?

All ETR backs work with all ETR cameras except the ETR-C, which only uses the inserts. The early backs have a single latch and a winding key. The middle ones have double latches and a winding thumb wheel. The Ei backs have double latches and a winding crank like a 35mm has. The Ei backs also have a locking dark slide to prevent accidental film exposure wnen the back is off the camera. All inserts work with all the back frames. I the used market you will find them in any combination (frame, insert & darkslide).

I am aware of three series of lenses: MC, EII and PE. They all work fine with any body.

Bronica AE II E Finder Owners Manual

Since I never use a TTL flash with my Bronica's, I'll give you my suggestion for a great solution. Using your TTL Metz flash, (make sure you've connected the TTL cord for Bronica ETRsi) take 8 shots at different apertures on A (Automatic), then take 8 shots at different apertures on M (Manual). I realize this will waste one 120 roll of film, but one negative will stand out as your perfect exposure. Yes, whenever you reduce the ISO in half, your basically overexposing the film by one f/stop. Just remember that this overexposes everything your shooting from foreground to background. With flash, this may cause your highlights to wash out, but any good lab could print for the highlights and make the background go darker. I used to shoot Vericolor at ISO 125 instead of it's rated ISO of 160.
