<< My suggestion for any new "winderites", even with brand new camera and
 winder right out of the box, is a light rub with a clean cloth (hankie or
 undershirt) and I bet it'll run as soon as you press the button.

After cleaning every contact on both the winder and camera several times mine
still didn't  work.  After receiving it back from Leica(camera and winder) it
only worked 50% of the time.  I returned mine for credit.  Leica has got a
problem with this product, in my opinion.  It will haunt them for
years....again, my opinion.  A little too much plastic for me.
