    I pushed the button on the bottom and rewound the film. Then pulled on the winder but the back door will not open. I have used this camera for years and this is the first time I have had trouble with this.

Did you try lifting up the winding lever all the way out of the body?

How do you load it


To open back cover lift knob on top of camera ( this knob has a small arm that unfolds - used in rewinding).
Once open you will see which side is the film side ( under this knob) and the take up side. On the film side raise the knob again in order to insert film case, the top of this should flip over later used to rewind film. with film trail out toward back of camera. Now push the knob down. Film should only be loaded one way so the knob can be lowered into film canister. Lower knob and Film canister is now secure.
Next thread film leader onto take up spool. Some times these have a slot , but most Just have the teeth that fit the film edge.thread the film into slot then unto teeth. You will need to use film advance arm (There should be an arm on the top opposite side of film knob) you would move that would advance film.
as you move this arm ( with cover open ) film holes should engage the teeth on bottom and top. ( if you can't advance after 1 or 2 advance arm swings) press take picture button ( releases springs).
continue until film is captured top and bottom. Use the film spool knob gently wind film back into canniester until snug don't over wind. Close cover, take a picture with lens cap on, repeat that. As you wind ,the film cartridge knob should rotate.
You are not wasting pictures film was designed for this waste.
you should know how many photos were on film 12/24/36 pictures.
you may have a knob to set to that number.
When your ready to remove film ,push silver button on bottom and use winder handle ,rotating until free and easy. Open cover mention earlier.
wow can't believe I remembered all that and hope that helps.

The link above will take you to a .PDF that is an owners manual for the Canon Sure Shot Z135

1. Slide the back cover downwards
2. Insert the film

3. Pull the film tip across until it reaches the film tip marker
- Make sure the film is flat
4. Close the back cover
5. Turn the dial to (auto)
(Turn the power on)
the camera will automatically advance the film to the first frame.
6. "1" should be displayed on the frame counter

If this show zero there has been an issue, make sure you are using the proper film for the camera

I have a Canon Sure Shot Tele dated around 1993. Its a film camera and I'm having trouble finding where to replace the battery.


If it's the TELE/MAX, the battery cover is on the left end of the camera (as viewed from the back). Slide the cover toward the back to open. It takes one CR123A battery, positive terminal up.

If it's the TELE, the battery cover is on the right end of the camera (as viewed from the back). Use a precision screwdriver to unscrew the two screws. Hook your thumb against the side of the battery and lift upward, then pull the battery out. It takes one 2CR5 battery.

Do not replace the battery when film is loaded.

How do I open the back of a honerwell pentax-spotmatic camera to load film


Try lifting up the film rewind knob and pull the back cover. Maybe the back cover is stuck with the old gummy light shield.

Where will I get a digital back cover for my A-1 analogue camera


Sorry, converting a film camera to digital involves more than just a back cover. Medium- and large-format cameras can do this because the back involves the entire film transport system. Open up the back of your AE-1 and you'll get an idea of just how much of the camera is devoted to film--the casette on the left, the take-up spool on the right. Converting the camera to digital would cost a lot more than a new digital camera.

Fuji 35mm Camera (Model DL-400)


Dawn

remove the battery and check that it is good. replace battery and open back door, close the door and it should run the motor / transport. if so, load film up to the drive sprocket being sure film will catch on the sprocket.
or move the latch holding back cover, and open the door fully. check the pressure plate on the door, gently pull the plate up a little to increase pressure on the film. bring the holding lever out toward the latch and close the door to lock the lever back to position.

i think it means the film hasn't loaded properly. I had this and opened up the back and the film hadn't wound so it wasn't exposed. Anyway i just wound the film around a bit and shut the back and it turned on like normal. hope this helps.
