Hi everyone,
Hopefully someone can help me with this one....
I have recently bought a Yashica Mat and some 120mm film to go with it...
Today i decided to load it up and take some shots in the office with it but after loading the film and winding it on. it would appear that the shutter is stuck shut! :-( so now i have a roll of film in here that isn't exposed but wound onto the take up reel. I'm wondering if it is possible to unwind the film back onto the original reel or something so that i can use it again as it hasn't been exposed.

Also is there a way to check if the shutter is functioning?

When you cranked the film winder to advance the film did you then crank the film winder backwards to its original position to cock the shutter?
