sx70-when I look through viewfinder all I see is black : LUSENET : polaroid transfers : One Thread

just bought a mint condition sx70, but when I look through the viewfinder all I see is black. Do I need to load a film first?? or is there some other reason why??

It sounds like your camera may be broken. I believe it means your mirror is stuck in the wrong position. You can try loading film and see if it works, to be sure, though.

thanks for response. Alass, i think you may be right. either a broken mirror or out of alinement. As a last resort i think i will try a roll of film. thanks again.
