    I had the same problem with my 1st C330. My 2nd one works fine. I've never used it. Always tried to memorize DOF tables. Yeah right!! LOL

    Same problem here, I noticed after the camera came back from an advance mechanism repair. Never bothered to fix it.
    Using film since before it was hip.

    Give this a try.
    The white piece you see blocking the window goes behind the scale rod (IIRC). Yours seems to be laying on top of the scale rod in the window. Follow the attached link, (pg 20-21 (?). Remove the scale rod; use a small piece of wire to lay the white tab towards the interior of the camera; re-insert/re-install the scale rod with the white tab behind the scale rod in the window.
    I think that white tab is more of a bearing surface, and may not cause much, if any problem, if it were removed entirely.

    The distance scale shaft is not what makes the window move. There's a little latch activated by the protruding screw more on the upper strut, in red on the photo.

    I tried pushing the little latch by hand with a trombone, but to no avail. The linking mechanism between the latch and the moving window must be uncoupled, and that would probably require opening the side of the camera.

    The moving window was not the smartest part of the C330 series design. Since it is a linear scale it is never easy to read, and really not sensitive enough for fine focus. The earlier scales used for the C220/C3 or the plates on the C33 were better. You can calibrate your own set of scales based on lensboard extension from the body, and even add in some hyperfocal distance marks.

    I cannot remember the last time I looked at the distance scale. If I need to know the distance it is short enough to measure. But I have a reasonable eye for distance and a good feel for DoF behavior with different lenses.
    I feel, therefore I photograph.
