    Picture of the problem (perhaps)

    I compared your picture to mine and I think you have discovered the issue. I was on the wrong end of the adapter in my previous reply. Sorry about that.

    In your picture, directly above the black thing the adapter is laying on and directly underneath the tiny screw in the picture, there is small tiny piece of shiny metal sticking out and "pointing" at about 4-O-Clock (if we were looking down on a face clock). Directly above the tiny screw is a rectangular cutout were the dark slide metal piece pushes in. Mine has a piece sticking out with the dark slide pulled. You can compare my picture1 with yours.

    On my adapter, with the dark slide pulled out, I can see a tiny piece of metal that pops out (Arrow A in pic 1).

    In Pic 2 I rolled the adapter out of the way so you can clearly see that piece A is pushed by the dark slide and rotate piece at arrow B out of the way and allow pin C to be pushed by the camera pin. I think...

    These pieces are also in place to prevent you from taking the back off with out the dark slide in place.

    Any way, if they do not take care of it, it may be possible to take the thing apart and at least see what the problem is, broken piece, stuck piece, broken spring, ect.

    Good luck.

    Thank you for the picture. I was able to turn the back and it looked like that piece of metal (C) was pushed too far in. It doesn't seem to move freely but I was able to push it out and it then worked. I guess the question is is that pin supposed to move freely like the thin pin that goes into the camera which does move freely or was it just out of position and I had to push it back in? I have film in there but after I finish a roll I'll have to see if the shutter can fire with the darkslide in? (ie. did I disengage an interlock to prevent that by pushing it out. Does "C" move freely on your's??? I know A and B do and should. If it doesn't that maybe a job for lighter fluid? In the meanwhile I should be able to shoot a roll with it tomorrow

    Thank you for the picture. I was able to turn the back and it looked like that piece of metal (C) was pushed too far in.

I guess the question is is that pin supposed to move freely like the thin pin that goes into the camera which does move freely or was it just out of position and I had to push it back in? The round pin only moves freely with the dark slide out since the camera is designed to not allow photographers to shoot up a roll of film with the dark slide in and ruin the film. I think the pin or pins on back of the camera aligns with the round pin in the adapter and with the dark slide is out, the metal piece A & B rocks out of the way and lets the round pin be pushed in so the camera can fire, kind of like a safety on a gun.

    I have film in there but after I finish a roll I'll have to see if the shutter can fire with the darkslide in? No, the camera cannot fire with the dark slide in. The dark slide has to be pulled out at least until you can see the little triangle on the dark slide.

    (ie. did I disengage an interlock to prevent that by pushing it out. Does "C" move freely on your's??? A&B work together to allow C to move or not move. This is happening on both sides of the dark slide - A&B work together to lock and unlock the camera. You are not supposed to be able to pull the film carrier off the adapter with out the dark slide in or you will ruin the film (if there is film in the film holder). My pin will not move freely with the dark slide in.

    I know A and B do and should. If it doesn't that maybe a job for lighter fluid? In the meanwhile I should be able to shoot a roll with it tomorrow. There may be some grease (degraded light seal?) build up and a degreaser may help. I would use an electronic cleaner instead of lighter fluid. Lighter fluid being for lighters and flammable.

    If you don't have a manual to read the basic operations, you can google and find down loadable PDF version.

    Glad to hear your taking pictures.

    Have fun.

    Thanks. It sounds like a degreaser of some sort as the pin doesn't move without a little force even with the darkslide out. I had to use a pen to push it out so the camera would fire.
    I have the manual but it doesn't get to this level of detail (how the interlocks work.)

    Thank you and everyone else who helped again.

    Couple drops of lighter fluid will loosen it up.

    Is your dark slide notched to set the interlock properly?

    Older RBs didn't have this feature and were un-notched.... when used in Pro or better, the un-notched DS over rides the interlocks.
    Anyone can make a Digital print, but only a photographer can make a photograph.

    Thanks Paul...yes, that's precisely what I did and it appears to have worked. I know I may need to do it again as that's what happened with the graflex..needed a second treatment when the shutter was sticking
