With the fourth video you run the camera without film and fumble on the pressure unit with the finger. Something could be askew with the claw cover. Undo the two screws that retain the claw cover plate, remove plate and inspect it for flatness. Dress, if not flat. Place it on a flat piece of wood and tap a small wooden stud on it with a little hammer. It can get bent when the pressure unit is open and the lid is forced onto the camera. The pressure plate is checked with a straight edge. A local mechanic could help you out.


Only one last dumb question from my side. You had the negative scanned, not a print?
