  1. Hello, Having a problem with ripped sprockets when trying to advance film. The rewind lever is not moving smoothly all the time. Someimes it moves freely then hangs up and is extemely rigid suddenly. So at random intervals is causes too much tension and rips sprockets when advancing film. (The rewind knob does not move properly in either direction.) Anyone know a possible cause and a fix for this issue? Any help is appreciated, thanks!
  2. Hello, It's my first post on the forum, so a quick introduction: I live in Amsterdam and I'm the very proud owner of an M6 and an M3, the latter recently acquired seemingly in tip-top shape, serial 1 034 xxx. I've discovered a strange issue though, that I've yet to find a reference to on the forum or the web at large: it seems I can wind the shutter and shoot without encountering any resistance well past the frame 40 (where the counter stops). This of course is with 36 positions film loaded properly (Ilford XP2 and HP5+), as the two red dots keep turning until about frame 36-7 or so. After that, the dots no longer turn, but the shutter winds/cocks and shoots without issues, the frame advances to 40 and the stops, and I can still keep going at it. Miffed, I switch to R and rewind the film back into the canister. I can clearly hear the film moving inside, and finally there's a slight tension (but just ever so slight) followed by a much freer, lighter movement of the rewind knob which makes it clear that film's wound all in. Indeed taking out the canister shows it is. This happened twice already with both films I've shot on the camera. What could be happening? My M6 clearly doesn't allow me to keep on winding like a madman, reaching the end of the film prevents the winder to work, lest the film be broken off the canister. My only speculation is that the teeth engaging the sprockets are very slippery and just won't pull the film at some point, preferring to slip. Could this have anything to do with my not winding back the film a little bit during loading, before shooting frames -2 and -1? Please, any thoughts! Kind regards, Radu
  3. It has happened more than one time. When I'm around frame 25 of a film, I can't advance the film anymore....it is like I have reached the end of the film. Does anyone know why it this happening?? thanks
  4. My M3 often requires a small third wind of the advance lever before I can press the shutter release. Is that normal? Am I not winding far and forcefully enough on the first two winds?
  5. Hi all, I just bought a Leica M6 on eBay and put my first roll of film through it. Now, I don't know if it's me or the camera, but for some reason the negatives came out with large gaps between frames or with exposures on top of each other. Is something wrong with this camera? I'd never loaded a film Leica before but followed the instructions exacty, even tried different methods on Youtube. Anyone with any experience? Should I send it back? Thanks for your time guys and gals.
