    Hmm maybe check the seals, be sure nothing is coming off and interfering with the closure. Also look inside and check the bellows for proper folding. Note also that you can fire the lens with the back open, that can be a useful way to spot various issues including RF alignment and shutter misfires and problems with the foldout mechanism etc.

    Check to see if you have the 120/220 switch on for the correct film you're using.

    Hey Giorgio_23, I just found this discussion that you started a little more than a year ago. I have the exact same problem with my Mamiya 6 that your were having!

    Well... not exactly the same... but very very similar. The shutter release button will not fire when the back of the camera is closed and with film. When there is no film - it WILL fire with the back open and it WON'T fire with the back closed - which is normal. But when I load film and close the back - the button doesn't do anything when I press it, and I can keep winding the film advance lever without it stopping. It's like the camera doesn't realize that there is film loaded.

    I'm very curious to know if you managed to fix your problem and if you know what the problem was. Please let me know... I'm stuck in the middle of a photography residency in New York and without my favorite camera... I'm feeling lost.

    I look forward to your reply. Thanks!

    I recently bought a used Mamiya 6. And I also have the same problem as you adifrank. Just more complicated. Sometimes, but rarely, the camera accepts the film. Other times, more often, I'm allowd to expose the first frame, but then the red indicator shows and I cant shoot anymore. And most of the time the camera does not register the film at all. I've wasted a total of 5-10 films on this problem now. So I've sent the camera for repair at a certified Mamiya service center. If any interest, I will update with a description of the problem and the solving.
