Hi All,
the last two rolls I have put through my Rollei 35 (1st model), have been removed prematurely as the wind lever has stopped advancing/cocking after about 5 frames. what happens is that it just goes loose, as though the gears did not engage, and it were just attached to a spring.

Have you any ideas as to what might be the issue, and how to fix it? The camera was heavily used when I bought it, but I am proud to have one of the few 1966 models.

I also have persistent problems with the flash sync, which i assume is just an inherent problem with the contacts to the baseplate, though i am not sure where the grounding contact is.
