    At the risk of being redundant, first, if you haven't done so, remove the magazine. To do that, you have to have the darkslide inserted or it won't release from the camera body.

    Next, if you have a lens on the camera, make sure the shutter is cocked. Remove the lens cap if any, gently push open the rear shutter curtains and look to see daylight coming through the lens. If not, it ain't cocked. It has to be for the camera to fire. Soooooooo, first, while gently holding the shutter open, take a long, thin screwdriver and CAREFULLY insert it in the lens cocking screw at the base of the lens, turn it (no pressure) don't let the screwdriver slip and scratch that 80mm lens. <G> Continue to turn it clockwise until you see the lens shutter blades open and lock in the open position. Your camera should now be cocked and the shutter should release by pushing the release.

    Also, remember that although the camera will fire without a film mag in place, when you DO put a mag on it, it won't fire unless you pull the dark slide. Yep, when you get the manual, read it. Also, a copy of Ernst Wildi's book "The Hasselblad Manual" will likely be helpful to you both in terms of inspiration and technical stuff. Okie dokie?
    Take it light.

    BTW, one other thing I forgot. The mirror pre-release is a flat button located directly under the film advance lever. Never EVER try to put a cocked lens on a body that isn't cocked (mirror down and shutter advanced). That's about a $200 repair if it gets forced. So, if you need to lock-up the mirror before you shoot, just push that button up and you'll feel the satisfying kathunk of the mirror going up but BUT you won't be releasing the shutter yet. When you're ready to do that, like by cable release, just push the shutter release and you'll hear the lens shutter open and close. Don't forget to advance the film which will recock the lens and reposition the mirror.
    Hope this helps.

    For Hasselblad lens unjamming info, go here:

    That's a great camera you've got there; get a manual and enjoy the fun of knowing that every screwed up photo is totally your fault and not the equipment's!

    What? Nikon, Canon, Minolta, Fuji, etc glass, isn`t good enough?

    Ridiculous statement!

    Schneider made Hasselblad lenses - Tele-Arton (?) in at least one instance.
    Rodenstock, Cooke, .... a bunch of other non-Blad lenses are pretty damned good as well. There are some wonderful images made with Holgas ... I don't know who makes their lenses...

    "CAN'T tell you ..." ?? Pretty obvious. Why should I try?
    Carpe erratum!!

    Yes, I figure I've reduced the situation to where "operator error" will be the ONLY explanation for bad pics!

    True. But the police won't arrest you fondling your PHOTOGRAPHIC equipment in public places.

    My excuse/justification for why I covet cameras when I already have too many.
