Minolta 5000 Maxxum Auto/Manual, Did it rewind? How do I tell, I am an advanced photog, but this is new. Says 24 with 2 arrows right pointing. Should I darkroom it??? TY


Darkroom is always safest in these situations. Sounds like you don't have a manual - if you google the make and model, followed by the word Manual, you may be able to find one.

I have an old Canon 105 zoom sure shot. I want to get the old film out but the battery is dead. I don't want to purchase a new battery. How can I accomplish this? Thank you reedcm@verizon.net


If you have a changing bag, you can put the camera inside, open the back, remove the film, and rewind it by hand. You can also do the same in a darkroom (a photographic darkroom, not just a dark room). A good camera store can do it, though you'll probably also have to have the film processed there.

If you have any plans to use the camera in the future, you may as well invest in a battery now. You can take the battery out of the camera and set it aside to preserve the charge.

Film stuck in camera


First, replace the batteries, turn on the camera and try again. If that dose not work, you need to take the camera into a darkroom, a room that is 100% totally dark. The slightest light leak could fog your film. If you do not have a room in your house that you can make light tight during daylight, try doing this at night, Once you are in the darkroom, you will need to work by feel. Open the camera back and feel for the film magazine. If there is no film protruding, you are ok and can turn on the lights. If not, you need to pop the magazine out and use the protruding knob on the end to manually wind the film into the magazine while you alternately pull the film off the take-up spindle. Once all the film is in the magazine, you can turn on the lights.

Unable to rewind film in camera


Well, I used to work at a camera store and actually encountered this a number of times with Minolta's. I can't remember if the motors wore out or if the film slipped or tore at the track. The solution: take the camera into a darkroom or pitch black environment and remove the film by hand. Bring a pair of scissors and a black film container just in case the film tears or the track is torn. Obviously be careful to ensure no light is available if you can't access a darkroom. Check the bottom of the camera for a small button that disengages the motor gear (some newer models may not have this)(you may have to hold it in). Open the film door and with clean hands, use your index fingers and thumbs carefully on the tracks only and pull evenly. You may feel some resistance from the motor and hear the motor but if it won't budge check again if the bottom of the camera has a film release. As you do this feel for torn areas in the track which may indicate a motor malfunction or improperly loaded film. Now just wind the film back into the canister unless the track is torn. You may want to leave the leader out, and you should probably have the film developed right away for a list of reasons. If the track is torn, cut it off at the canister and touching only the edges roll it up and put it inside the plastic film container. Mark it "open film", or Open only in darkroom etc. and mention it to your developer. Alternately you can just hand over your camera to your developer who will do all of this for you...
