Please be patient as these are technical questions that may require a bit of conversation to solve.
Also remember to be detailed in your description of the problem.

Hi thanks for that information. You must load the film first on this model to be able to activate the shutter.
Please try that first and if this works please rate my service kindly if not please don't rate yet but simply reply to me for further information.

Your very welcome, you can play with the shutter without film inside, but you would need to locate the tiny lever in the film compartment;-)
You can always get in touch with me if you need further assistance after rating.
Please rate my service kindly thus far, it is the only way I receive credit for my time with you;-)
It won't cost you anything additional to rate;-)
Thank you and have a great day!
