I bought an old 35mm film camera online. I loaded the film, turned the knob that advanced the film. Looking at the dial on top, as I turned the knob, it turned past one, went to two, went to three, never stopping at a number. I can advance the whole roll of film.
Shouldn't it be stopping when it gets to a number? When I press the button to take a picture, it presses down, but the shutter doesn't snap or take a picture.
Does anyone know what this issue could be? I was looking online and couldn't find anything with my exact problem - it's not that the film doesn't advance, it just doesn't stop advancing. The rewind lever does move when it's advancing, and the little wheel moves the film correctly. It's an old Russian Lomo LC-A camera, so I'm not able to send it back to the manufacturer or anything. The manual is not very helpful for this issue.
