    there is no need to have film inside, the counter only works if the back is closed properly. The back is closed if the pin on the right side of the camera between where the film will travel and the edge (same as advance btn and film counter) is pressed down. From 0 there is 4 red circles and then 1.

    So I guess the first thing to check is if the pin is there.
    (Yes I agree, I probably should learn some more English before I try to explain things to people)

    Ricoh Diacord update. I did not have the nerve to open camera up, but I kept working all the functions and pushing the pin on back. Camera nows works, have loaded a test roll and waiting for less than 100 temp to take it out. Thanks again for everyones help.

    I owned a Diacord LM, in if my memory is correct, there is a sequence that involves pushing in the black plastic button in the middle of rewind knob and winding forward until it engages, and that marks the first frame. But my memory may be hazy. The bodies of those cameras are built like a tank.

    Yes your memory serves you well. The day I unpacked the Ricoh it just felt so right I knew my hunt was over, well at least for now. Only 1 other camera has smitten me, the Nikon F4s and I sold it to move into medium format. I toted that heavy F4 everywhere and I still miss it.

    By the way, Karl Bryan, who is known for quality work on Minolta Autocords, also works on Ricoh TLRs. You might contact him to see if he will work on your model. Fast, good prices, and one of the honest ones. Sounds like it could use an overhaul and cleaning, so if it stays as a prime camera for you it might be worth sending to him. email: karl.kathy@frontier.com
