    just got one but the film andvance and shutter release don't work, also there's a little lever on the lens that doesn't work ethier. It was only 15 bucks but it would be nice to fix anyways... Anyone know how much it would cost to fix or how I could fix it myself??? Thanks in advance

    A lot of the Voigtlander models require film to be loaded before they will
    function.

    Have you tried that?

    ^^ Right on! ^^

    If you don't want to put film in it, at least open the film chamber and move the sprockets until it clicks. That should do it.

    Let us know...

    Voigtlander marketed 2 cameras called "Vito C." One in the 1960s and one in
    the 1980s. They're completely different cameras.

    What is written around the front of the lens on yours?

    It's from the 1960s. It definitely needs film loaded to operate. I would try a roll of film in it.
