Franka Solida Record does not close

  1. Hopefully some one can help me..... I am since this evening the happy owner of a Franka Solida Record from 1957.
    Unfortunately the lens is 'damaged', there is half way a sort of 'film' (moist?).

    However, I unfolded the front for the first time using the button and it pooped out nicely but don't know how to slide it back in again. What am I doing wrong?

    Thank you so much for any advice you can give me.

  2. Just below the front of the lens, running across the base plate of the camera, there's a bar with a plated button in the middle. If you press the bar downwards into the base plate the camera should begin to fold and close.
