Help with Hasselblad 500 ELX
I'm hoping you all can help me diagnose my newly arrived purchase, a Hassy 500 ELX with 150 f/4 Sonnar. It came with a 9v adapter. There are two issues, and I'm not sure if the problem is me or something else. Sometimes, in "O" mode, I push the shutter button and just hear a click (not sure if that's the shutter firing or not), but nothing else--no rear curtain moving and no film advance. When this happens, the only way to get things back to normal is to turn the lens focus.
Another problem is sometimes in "O" mode the shutter does fire, and the rear curtain opens, but then doesn't close or advance the film, until I press in that little tab on the back right.
Lastly, when shooting in "A" mode, I press the shutter once and the camera fires (shutter, rear curtain, film advance) twice in rapid succession.
These tests were after foolishly loading some film last night and clicking away, only to hear a soft click but only get other movement when rotating the lens focus here and there.
Any ideas? Does it need service, or am I missing something?
