    If the interlocks are working properly, a lens cannot be mounted to a body unless both are cocked.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

The same think can happen to Hasselblad, or so I've read. I don't know how you solve that problem if it happens, however. It hasn't happened to me - yet.

    And be sure your new battery is actually a good new battery. I recently had battery problems with my Mamiya and discovered my new batteries were old inventory and were dead when purchased.

    I dry fired it several times before the problem occurred, it had a good battery but went and bought another one in hope. Thanks for suggestions.

    Now the lens is not cocked and can not remove it, I can move the mirror slightly but its clear that its hung. I fear forcing it will do more damage

    Remove the back and see if you can then get the body to wind.

    Hold the body firmly and rotate the lens back and forth by the ribbed collar (the one that says Seiko) there will be a bit of play in there.

    Sounds like the the pins in the lens are starting to stick.

    Check the contacts in the battery compartment. Make sure they are clean and that they are making solid contact.

    Hmm - the SQ-A will fire (at fastest shutter speed) without a battery so I'd be disinclined to suspect the battery.

    The camera can normally be cocked and fired with no back installed by turning on the multi-exposure (turn lever horizontal) and cranking. Of course if it's now in some in-between state I suppose all bets are off.

    Thanks for the help, but lens has just a tiny bit of wiggle room. Every time I walk by I pick it up and will keep trying. Please keep suggestion's coming.

    I believe that's the condition the camera is in. Its almost time to break open the tool kit. Right now still concerned about doing more damage. Please keep the suggestions coming. Thanks for your input.
