Shutter Lock Up on Mamiya AFD III with Film backs
So I have been using my afdIII with the film backs from my old AFD II as they are compatible. However, after I go through a roll of 120, take it out and pop in another roll and advance to the first frame, the shutter doesn't actuate! I can still autofocus but no matter how many times I press the shutter button, it won't fire. This has happened to me everytime....the only way I can actuate the shutter again is when I put my digital back on and fire off some shots, then it appears to go back to normal working condition
Has anyone had a similar experience? Im not sure if this is a firmware bug, I checked and the firmware is version 1.1

Not sure, but check to make sure the battery in the film back is good. Other possibility is the dark slide release pin may be sticking?
