Hi All,
My Sankyo 2000H will not load a film. It will rewind & play forward but will not accept the film, It`s the forward part that does not work. Any Ideas, Perhaps Janice could help?
Best Wishes,

Have you checked the front film channel by undoing the chrome screw just above the focus knob? I found a piece of broken film wedged there on one I bought.

If you check out the gate as Will suggested and don't find any debris then you next need to check the claw. The claw may need adjustment if not positioned properly to align and pull down the film.
