    Re-Attaching Mamiya 645 1000s Film Crank

    It fell off somehow, and i can't for the life of me figure out how to re-attach it. I've googled it with no luck, and i don't know where else to turn. If someone knows how to put it back on, please share some insight.

    Line it up and twist to wind the film, this should lock it in place.

    There's something that weakens probably a spring and they fall of more frequently as they get older, well mine does

    Greg, your method didn't work. I don't have film in it right now. Could that be why? This is my first MF camera and i just got it so i don't know a whole lot about cranks.

    Lining up is tricky but simple. My 100s camera is a continent away or I'd post some images. It can only attach in 3 possible positions try this site and download a Manual the 100s is there, it should indicate how to re-attach.

    Hi, flip the Multi-Exposure lever to Multi and it should work stop rotating. Also, line up the white mark with the red dot.

    Yup, forgot about the constant winding without film and forgot about the little marks.
