SX-70 not ejecting after dark slide

Messagepar liminalthreshold » jeu. 10 janvier 2019 / 20:48 pm

Hi all! This is my first post here and I'm hoping for some help from the group. I'm an art teacher and have been playing with emulsion lifts with good success. I decided to upgrade from my impulse to an SX-70 to try and get more control with my pictures but the camera is having a problem:

After inserting the film into the camera, it will easily eject the dark slide.
After taking the first picture, the camera makes all of the correct noises but does not eject the film.
If I take the camera into the darkroom and remove and reinsert the cartridge, it then ejects the film and the pictures come out great.

This leads me to think that the problem isn't the pick arm or the film since it can eject both film and dark slides when the cartridge is first inserted. I've searched high and low and haven't found an answer, so any help is much appreciated.
