Yep, if the little counter "finger" is unobscured by foam, and the film was wound... a pro is called for, unless you hold your camera fixing skills in much higher esteem than I do mine - hopeits something minor that won't detract from your enjoyment of the little QL - we love ours and its been a rock of reliability!

I hope you opened it in the dark? Or did you not particularily care about that roll of film?
