Hi all,

When I try to feed film through between Aperture and Pressure plate and then using manual winding or motor, film is not moving, closer inspection I discovered what looks like sprocket pins that to me would help feed film, but these two pins disappear as it runs.

Refer picture below.

Anyway seen this and have any idea of how to access area of unit where they are?

Thanks
Phil

Sorry to reply to own post, but this is an update.

The two prongs inside gate, their arm appears to be bent, as prongs should come up a little bit more to grab and feed film through. The arm that holds them is behind shutter wheel and runs behind that to back of unit.

I have no idea if one could even bend it or how to do that.

I uploaded a video of arm moving.
