Is this a AF77? I haven't heard of a FF77?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Owners manual says FF-7 . It is admittedly old. Manual shows a 1985 date on it.

Does it normally auto feed or do you have to manually set the film into a certain place? Is it motorised advanced or manual?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I had an issue causing the delay from when I wrote this originally (12-1). Will I be charged additional fees since I never received a solution to my problem?
In answer to your last question:
The Ricoh FFF-7 auto feeds when back is closed on new roll of film, and counter advances to the first frame.
Thanks, Matt
