When I set the Mirror up on the dial and attempt to take a picture I see black in viewfinder and no picture is taken It seems like it is stuck. Am I doing something wrong or is it broken?
Thanks for any help

Did you press the shutter release twice? The first one raises the mirror and the viewfinder goes black, The 2nd press takes the photo.

Follow Len's advice and p. 83 of the manual.
