I HAVE A 3A AND CAN NOT OPEN THE FRONT.
THE HIDDEN BUTTON ON THE TOP LEFT (FACING THE CAMERA) DOES RELEASE THE DOOR BUT ONLY OPENS A 1/4" INCH OR SO AND THEN STOPS.
CAN ANYONE SUGGEST A WAY TO HANDLE THIS?

The Graflex 3A is a Reflex Camera.

See the RB Graflex Manual linked there. Although not listed in the manual the camera and shutter operates the same.


COCK THE MIRROR as if for viewing. Lever H should point toward the rear of the camera not the front.

Turn your caps lock OFF in future posts please.

Some of his maintenance tips are not in keeping with factory servicing recommendations and may result in damage or part failure over a long period of usage.
