There are 2 common faults in a Hasselblad.... "mismatch" of the wind
position of the back and body ( white dot and black dots); lockup of the
rear body shutter/baffle.

The first is cured using noted Hasselblad shutter winder tool ( looks like a
long dumb screwdriver, available through Ebay for about $15).

The second is fixed by pushing the rear shutter baffles in with a finger,
and letting them return to their correct position.

Both require getting the back off the camera, and proceeding through the
rear of the camera.  Usually the magazine back can have its metal dark slide
somewhat forced into position, which will allow the back to be removed.
