First thing to do is to make sure you are in fact loading it correctly. Look on Youtube on how to load a Rolleicord, not a Rolleiflex, as the Rolleiflex GX and FX load like a Rolleicord. The FX and GX do not automatically know where the film is in the camera so you *must* wind the film so that the arrows are point at the red dot on the back of the camera. If you're not doing that, then you're not loading it correctly.
