Hi,

 

I have a problem with the Arri cam.

 

The camera is stuck on "wind" when I load a mag. Sometimes it doesn't, but the mag jams after running the film for a few seconds. I hear a scratching sound in the mag.

 

When I load the film, I make sure to roll the take-in core several times to make sure its tight. Then I close the mag and pull out some film from the feed side to make a bigger loop.

 

When the camera jams, I open the mag in the changing bag and the film in the take-in side is either loose or "spaghetti". 

 

What is going on?

 

HELP!

How familiar are you with loading Arricam mags?

Have you read the manual to make sure you're loading correctly?

Check out

for an overview of the loading procedure, particularly the "3 clicks" bit.

Yea, if the core isn't tight on the spindle, it will just spin and spin and spin, the film will eventually turn into spaghetti. I like that idea. :)
