On the off chance someone here has some experience with them. I've posted in a couple other places and sent an email to guy that repairs them.

Basically film door won't open. Mechanically, everything seems to work as it should; when you unlatch it the film door "relaxes" and is not held tightly to the body. It just won't swing open. This was bought as is, got a decent price and took a chance.

Eh, what do you exactly mean by won't open? Are you saying that you cannot put any force on the door to swing it open ... like it is glued shut?

Imagine like if you open a door and something is wedged in there. That's what it feels like. It gives a little, and it might be possible to force it, but I'm afraid to do so.
