    Nope nothing. No ME no mirror lock up. Nothing. Would a fresh set of batteries do it as I thought it might be something to do with the camera??

    This isn't even with a back on this has just happened

    I really am starting to give up with this all now as it's just a joke!!!

    cherryrig,
    Which camera body do you have? I'm not familiar with a Bronica body that displays ME curtains in the view finder. The batteries only affect the shutter speed on all SQ bodies except for the SQAM. Therefore replacing the batteries may not make any difference.

    With the back off not mounted, look at the back of the body, there is a gear for advancing the film. Flip the Multi exposure switch on and off. Does the gear move in and out? If so then the body is functioning properly. If it is working properly, with the back still off, wind the crank. Does the gear move?

    cherryrig,
    If you need to get into the back counter/gearing assembly: On the film back, remove the winder crank assy (mine has the folding crank/knob.). If I remember correctly, the attaching screw may have been left hand thread. With a hair dryer/heatgun, carefully warm the leatherette covering and peel it off. That will expose the screws that hold the gear cover on. Remove the cover and the gear trains will be accessible. Now you can operate the mechanism for the counter. If you dry fire it a number of times, the sequence should become recognizable. I did disassemble mine and was able to reassemble it. Be very careful as there are a number of small springs and keepers. Hope this can be of some help. Good luck,
    Gerry

    Yea that works fine but it's still having those little tabs on the mirror to tell you that ME mode is set, but it's not
