By FromMyLensCan I please get some advice / guidance on an issue. I recently bought an m4p 1 week ago.
The first roll was a brand bought caninister and loaded using the quick loading technique (guide end into tulip, put bottom plate on and good to go).
The second roll was a home bulk load affair. I think I didnt have a clean cut on the end of the roll, so when I loaded into the tulip, it has 'snagged' on the spring in the centre.
I had to take the roll out as after taking 2 shots I noticed that the film wasnt feeding correctly.
The problem was that as i pulled the film out of the m4p, is stretched the spring. So now that I am trying to load film, the spring doesnt allow the film to sit in the tulip and load onto the sprockets. (see bottom left hand corner of photo 1.
Photo 2 shows that if a lend the end of the film to sit outisde of the tulip, the film loads, so no faults with the sporkets or loading mechanism
Photos 3 shows a work around where i cut away half the width of the end of the roll, so it feeds into the tulip above the spring, whilst this does work, its not a long term solution.
Does anyone have any ideas how to re-set the spring?? looking down inside the centre coloumn of the tulip, I can see a screw, but Im loathed to start exploring a fix.
I have googled Leica M4p repair manual, but havent found anything.
Any advice would be kindly received.
By gwpicsToday I took a trip out to continue my efforts to "recentre" my work away from street photography. At the moment it is difficult because I am having fairly severe problems walking, but this is one of the resulting images:
