Question about Mamiya Photography
SOURCE: Frame counter-can't shoot
Having film in the camera makes no difference for the frame counter to work on this model. The counter is activated by a small tab that protrudes from the top edge of the film door near the hinge.
Locate the area on the camera where that tab meets in the channel along the top of the film compartment. There is a small opening for the lever that engages the drive gear for the counter. The opening may have debris (foam) or the tab may be broken. If neither of these is the case, the film door may be bent slightly and is not pushing the lever in far enough.
It is important for the counter to work on the FG since the metering is not active until the counter reaches '1'. (switch) It blinks 60 &125 in the display otherwise

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.

Considering the age of the camera, you probably have a broken indicator gear in the top of the camera. The chances of getting it replaced aren't good. If it still works otherwise, I wouldn't worry about it. Just use 24 exposure film.

Simple, the film counter unit has plastic gears underneath. the gear position or gear has worned out. simply replace the counter unit and adjust. This can be performed by any local repair shop for less than $100. -James. for further assistance email, go to www.camerarepairjapan.com

Squeeze the two handles on either side of the "120" or "220" label on the film holder to pull it out, then the spool is easily removed.
