    That's the dry fire drill: pull out the dark slide from the back a bit and push down the 2x lever--won't cock and fire otherwise without film.

    Do check the link I posted on how to use 120 in a 220 back--all's not lost!

    GSW thank you for the link. I have ordered several rolls of 120 film, I ordered extra so that I can use one to check spacing, etc.

    As a note, on these, unless film's loaded the shutter will only fire with the double exposure lever engaged. However, Bronica's are somewhat notorious for an issue with this switch. If I engage mine, I have to remove the battery and reset the camera to get it working properly again. Just an FYI.

Been looking for a 120 back, but they are almost as much as I have in the camera. And my wife keeps giving me the I told you to keep what you had look and now you have to order something for the camera

    Now to the unknown part, not sure if I am missing something, but I can only cock the shutter by moving the double exposure knob to that setting, then flip it back to A to fire shutter. I have tryed both backs and made sure the dark slide was removed with same results. Am I looking at a serious problem or just over looking something?

    I thank everyone for there help, now if I can sort this out.

    Bronica up date, used 120 in both 220 backs, only glich, only 9 exposures per roll. But had a major user problem, all images out of focus using both lens. Daughter gets prefect focus with either lens. So she talked me out of camera and gave back my Ricoh Diacord L:^) I have never had focus issues with any other camera other than a miss now and then. But am happy to get tlr back which I can focus:^)

    one90guy, Do you still have the Bronica? I'll be in Corpus next month, maybe we could meet (with another film-photo buff) and chat.
