    RB67 and motor-wind back

    I have an RB67 Pro-S body which does not always trigger the motor advance back to advance the film, and so I have to manually trigger the film advance periodically. Is this a problem with the back, or the body? I suspect the body, as it certainly seems much older than the motor wind back. If this is a body problem, does anyone know the level of effort/cost required to repair it? Or would I be better off just buying another RB-67 body?

    Hi

    The battery pack has two switches

    it senses the shutter release
    it sensed the body cocking lever moving off park

    It is pretty independent of the body really

    So

    problem with battery pack
    or
    problem with motor back

    check the battery connectors are clean is easiest 1st step

    check the connectors on the power cable from battery to motor pack next

    borrow a motor pack and battery pack is easiest afterwards

    screw driver battery pack last resort.
