One of the most common promblems on the m80 is the rewind driver breaks; this is a plastic part behind the supply spindle that enables the high speed rewind. All parts are available on-line at http://bitli.es/SZv0Qi

They also offer a flat rate repair service if you would like to have someone do it for you, but it's much more expensive than repairing it yourself.

My rewind works it is the clockwise that does not wk in the feed spool so I have to put the film in a pencil and hold it

The page I provided has the parts that are currently available for. It. I would still go to that page. Is. It just the arm that is not working?

this exchange did nothing to help me. Why when I use the rewind button does it not release and set the feeder to clockwise..I do t get a diagram of where this problem is just parts ..to what?
Camera and Video Technician: Michael Hannigan, Camera and Video Technician replied 2 years ago

You're welcome. There is a download link to the service manual on that page, but I just tried it again and it is not working. They also offer a hard copy to order, but it seems a bit pricey to me.

You will need to take it apart and look at the shutter assembly. On the back is a plastic gear. This is the part that often gets stripped. If that is the case, you can replace the shutter. If this gear is in tact, however, then it would have to be the adjoining gear on the take up arm.

Just be aware that if you are not familiar with working on these, they are not very easy to fix. And I would only suggest taking apart if you are certain you'll be able to put it back together - these machines are fairly complex mechanically. If you are unsure, then I would suggest the flat rate repair service instead.

Mike
