Question about Canon T70 35mm SLR Camera

1 Answer

Film door latch is loose

The film door latch doesn't seem to have the springiness to keep it in the closed position, and thus, if the latch gets bumped it can easily shift to the open position, letting the film door come open and exposing film. Granted, one fix will be to put tape over the latch once it's closed, however, I was wondering how tough it is to change out the latch mechanism itself or to put in some kind of replacement spring in the existing latch. USCamera seems to sell a latch mechanism at http://uscamera.stormer.us/1can050_017.htm Battery door is broken on my canon T70 SLR Camera, is this a difficult fix. Do you have any instructions available to do the fix. Thanks- Bruce

Same advice I made to another post. At some point you got to make a decision. There is a lot of plastic pieces that can break. Canon doesn't support the T series from what I've read. You may consider getting another one. You also have to consider that the fix may not work. Then what do you do?

I have a Pentax ME super and the film door will close when there is no film but when i load it with film its not closing properly?


I really loved your camera type though it was 35 years ago I had one. I envy you.

Not sure why you should be having trouble unless you have a bad film. Have you tried more than one film?

If the film cassette has dropped in properly and is laying flat, the film rewind has to be raised, I think, to allow that and the sprocket holes in the film are properly engaged with the sprockets and the free end of the film engaged onto the film wind-on reel then everything should be well below the door aperture.

I would wind on maybe a frame and fire the shutter prior to closing the film door just to observe everything moving as it should and then close the door.
The last quarter inch the door must be closed against the pressure of a spring but if the little spring-loaded device behind the door which is intended to keep the film perfectly flat against the camera body is working correctly only a light pressure will be needed to compress those springs and close the door.
Perhaps something is wrong there?

I don't remember any problems closing the film door.
I hope this helps but if it doesn't please come back again and describe your actions and the feel of the door more fully.

How do i advance the film in my Nikon N65


Hello Anonymous,
With each shot this camera auto advances the film. Maybe, when the film door is closed the film is not seated properly all to the right side. Thus the take up reel is not pulling the film.

Being as the N65 appeared in 2000, it is possible it may be stoved-up. Also, if so these are not worth fixing. For the cost of fixing I would look for a N80; a very nice camera much improved over the N65.

Cordially,

I have a Nikon FM3 and the shutter opens at the correct speeds but when I put B&W film in it (Kodak TX 400) and develope the film, there is nothing on the film like it was brand new. Help please.


Check to make sure that the film is properly inserted into the take-up spool, and watch the rewind knob and make sure it is turning indicating that the film is going through the camera. Also check to make sure that the multi-exposure lever isn't stuck in the on position by spillage or impact so the camera just keeps taking exposure on one frame and the film doesn't move.

How do you re-load it?


Open the back with the side latch, pull the header of your film out of the roll, insert that into the slot on the roller spindle far enough for it to wrap once, close the back of the camera, and then power it up. It will start to wind to the first photo segment by itself. If it doesn;t the film was not inserted far enough into the spindle.

Can't get my camera to advance the film. I put new batteries in but still nothing Is there a particular type of battery I should be using for it??


Hi Susanabbott2, As long as you are using AAA batteries, unless you have the holder for AA batteries it should advance the film. Things to look at: With the batteries in camera turned on do you see the red display in the view finder, if not there is an electrical issue, if you do see it do the following. Open the camera back make sure the leader is pulled to the red marker on the lower right. On the camera back door is there the chrome springy thingy with the little roller? If not then as you close the camera back there is nothing to place tension on the film so that the sprockets can grab the film.

Can't load the film in the F80 leader won't take up


Open the camera-back. Look to the right where the take spool is there is a red mark. The leader should go to the red mark not any more. Now look at the inside of the camera-door, you should see close to the hinge a springy thingy-bob. If that is missing then when you close the door there is nothing to push on the film to seat it. On that spring is a chrome pin as well. Hope this helps you.

Camera keeps rewinding film


Check the manual rewind button on the bottom plate of the camera. Make sure the button is not jammed under the edge of the button opening. If it is you might be able to carefully pry it out with a sharp pin or tooth pick (be careful not to pierce the button or you could damage the circuit board underneath) Or you could remove the bottom plate and reseat the button (be careful of a loose spring to the film door latch)
