It is the Bolex EM motor which attaches to the bolex Rex5 body. I have made sure that the connections are all correct and I have disengaged the camera motor and slid the shutter release to the M position.When attached (or not) to the camera and with the power plugged in my motor will only spin 2 or 3 times.. like a pulse.The battery is definitely charged. When I plug my mag motor into the top of the motor it seems to spin continuously but still the drive pin (which should engage the camera's drive shaft) on the EM only rotates once or twice.Has anyone encountered this problem before? i would appreciate any advice as I am in Bangladesh shooting without much support here.Thanks!!Tuni
