    Mamiya 645 Troubles

    I took out my Mamiya 1000S to give it some exercise, loaded a 120 insert, put it into the camera and tried to wind up the leader for the first frame.
    The knob didn't move. I tried snapping a picture and the shutter worked , but still couldn't advance the film. Took the film out, put it on another 120 insert, and the same thing happened. I even tried a 220 insert and nothing. Without any film in the camera and the insert in , I can snap the shutter and wind up the handle fine.
    I'm assuming the camera has a problem; Now is there something I can do to remedy this problem or am I going to have to send it for service

    Thanks

    Look at the multi exposure knob to be in the correct position.
    It is in the manual.
    If you don't have a manual and can't find it online, PM me and I will send you a copy.
    Also notice that you have to advance your film to the starting point (arrows) on the film insert before
    placing it in the body.

    Best regards,
    LCEL.
