    Hello, I have heard that if the battery is no good, the bronica lens shutter will fire, but with a speed of 1/500. Thought I would just mention it in case it helps you figure out the problem.

    It is possible that the interlock pin on the back is a bit too long, so that when the shutter release is pressed, the reflex mirror goes partly up but is prevented from swinging up fully, so that the shutter never opens. I have had this problem with a used back that I bought over a decade ago, and Bronica service (before Tamron bought them) wanted me to send in the body and the back to ensure proper repair.

    I don't know if an ETR has the same shutter firing LED confirmation in the body which the ETRSi has, but the failure of that LED to light is a confirmation of what I have described.
