    Hi,

    So I just bought a Mamiya RZ67 used from KEH.

    I got a new battery, and it worked fine, and I used it to shoot a couple rolls of film.

    Now the status lights on the viewfinder aren't lighting up, and I changed the battery, and they still don't work

    Shutter works but if I put it on 8 seconds it still goes quickly so I think it's not getting any power.

    Anyone have any ideas what could be wrong or how to fix it?

    I'm not happy about this because I literally only got a chance to shoot two rolls of film with it.

    You ought to call KEH. I'm sure they will make good and they might be able to help over the phone.

    Yes, call KEH. They are good folks and if you just bought it from them I'm sure they will help you.

    This was 100% user error

    There's two shutter settings -- on and backup 1/400 second

    My battery died and I switched the shutter to manual, shot a roll of film, realized it was very underexposed, and thought the battery was dead.

    So I switched out the battery, and never turned the lever back..

    They were very nice about it though...
