I bought a G111 GL (silver) on eBay for £25.00
The camera looks in top condition cosmetically. When I unpacked it I tried the frame advance which engaged and returned.....but thats it, the shutter button does nothing, the frames advance now only moves around one third the way.
Anyhow, when I opened the back I found a roll of film wound inside. I had a go at loading a film but as I say I cannot advance it. Also the pin I pressed to rewind the film has stayed put.
Looking through the lens the shutters are closed, and the aperture blades move freely.
The camera still had the old Mercury battery in it, I have or orded a replacement.
I am new to this type of camera and hope I am missing something obvious,
But fear it has major problems.any advise much appreciated.
