    Bronica SQ-A locked up

    Just got my Bronica back from my daughter and why test firing and trying to remember how to work it I think I have the mirror hung in the up position. I based that on no view through lens and I can no longer advance film to cock shutter. Any thoughts or suggestions. Hopefully I have not done any major damage.

    Two is enough for now. Bronica will have go to the back of the line for repair or replacement.

    Wish that was it, thanks for your help. I am not sure what I did to cause that, hopefully someone else has experienced this problem.

    I think they can lock up if you mount a lens that is not cocked with the body is cocked or something like that. Any chance you did something like that? 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.
