Winder LX issues

Hey all!

I recently bought a winder for my LX, but it doesn't seem to be working. Looking at the manual it seems I should simply attach it, cock the winding lever once and the winder should wind the film from then on. However, it doesn't do that in either C or S mode even though the LED lights up green. I have to keep using the cocking lever to wind the film, making the winder useless. Could someone help me troubleshoot?
