Question about Canon T70 35mm SLR Camera

1 Answer

Canon t70 I read a solution of yours and wondered if you had an answer for me. My t70 recently started no taking pictures, i press the button and I get a click, but the film doesn't advance or anything. I took the lens off and pressed the button, and nothing happens, mirror doesn't move or anything. The metal peice on the bottom of the chamber that the lens shutter gets moved with is where I'm thinking lies the problem. If I put some pressure on it and press the shutter button, it will take a picture, with and without film. After I do this it will take pictures over and over UNTIL I put a lens back on. (I've tried different lenses too) Once I put the lens back on it goes back to just clicking. Again, if I remove the lens and jiggle that metal piece it'll take a picture again. I'll include an image so you can see which piece i'm talking about. The pic included is a t80 but its the same piece that i'm referring to.

    The T80 doesn't have a stop down lever, which on the T90 is just about where the shaft of your drawn arrow is on the photo above.

    Look inside the T90 and see if there is a red dot showing next to the metal piece you referred to. If so, you need to move the stop down lever to hide the red dot before you mount the lens.

Honestly, I just got a T70 on ebay for $15. Sounds like it's time to move on. I had an AE-1 for over 10 years but it just wasn't working and one has to weigh the cost of repair, the cost to replace it or upgrade to a modest digital camera.

I recently bought a canon t70 on ebay. The seller mentioned that it was used, but failed to mention that the viewfinder was cracked. Can I possibly fix this or do I need to get my money back?


Hi there, and welcome to FixYa.

You should get your money back. Never buy something that you have to put money into to have it working properly. You should not attempt to repair this yourself. If you want to keep it, and pay even more money, take it to a shop.

TAKES 3 OR 4 PICTURES BEFORE STOPPING


Check that your camera is set for Single frame shooting mode. In the display, the arrow should be pointing at SINGLE. If it is pointing at the H(igh speed) or L(ow speed) CONT(inuous) setting change it by:
Open the palm wing door and check that the selector there is set to S-C. Then press the button in the center of the selector until the arrow is pointing at SINGLE.

Wondering if you could take a delayed picture with a canon powershot A 540, would like to set it so I can get the whole family in the picture


Press the FUNC/SET button. Use up/down to select Drive Mode (the rectangle, third item from the top). Use left/right to select the desired delay and press FUNC/SET. Start the self-timer by pressing the shutter release button as usual.

Canon T70 not taking photos!?!? Help


Oops my bad.

It could be a jammed shutter. If you take the lens out and the film out. Take a few pictures and see if the shutter moves. If there is no movement I would take it into a camera shop and take a look at it. Unless the shutter spring is busted, it could be an easy fix.
