    Is there a "reset procedure" on the OM-1 like there is on the OM-2?

    I have a nice looking black body OM-1 but its jammed.

    Check the rewind switch to make sure it isn't partially engaged.

    Otherwise, no.

    OM-1/1N is purely mechanical and so is the jam. There is no reset. Repair would be required. John
