    I have a Rolleicord va2, and the winding nob is on the right hand side together with the frame counter, focus on the left, I had problems with the film wind, in my case it did'nt wind on far enough and overlapping frames, but a service by Newton and Ellis sorted the problem out, but it is just possible that part of the Rolleikin adaptor is still in place, but I would get it serviced at www.newtonellis.co.uk They do great work, and you have one of the best cameras around for 120, second only to a rolleiflex, worth getting done,Richard

    I second the motion! The best experience I've had in MF photography has been with a Vb, but only after sending out to be overhauled and put back into "as new" condition. I think I paid about 150USD in 1990 for that service and it lasted more than a decade before the camera started acting like it might want to visit the shop again. Mine had this same problem (as well as slow shutter speeds that were slower than they should be) and it was cleared up with a simple cleaning and lubrication; no parts or extraordinary repairs were needed.

    thanks to everyone for your help, I do really appreciate it, gonna get it sent off in the week if I can, one last thing, on the other side from my latest photograph is the 12 count, but should the counter I photographed be a 12 count two? Unfortunetly I dont have this, will have to keep an eye out on ebay or the sale section, see what pops up.

    heres the other side, then ill leave it at that, thanks all for your help,

    Much appreciated,

    Joe

    If you are using roll film, don't use the Rolleikin counter (the one that goes to 36), only use the 12 counter -- the one shown in your most recently posted photo.

    One other thing to check before you send the camera for repiar, is the silver "tab/button" that can be seen on one side of the open back. That engages/disengages the 12 counter. Make sure it is being depressed by the back when closed and locked.

    Gingerjoe, I'm finding your attachments confusing because they are all mirrored.

    Nah, it's just the counter mechanism that needs a CLA. There's no button to be pressed before advancing the film (that was on the Rolleicord II and III), and the double exposure prevention lever in off position only makes it possible to cock and fire the shutter again for double exposures.
