Re: Unexpected Rewinding

Could you be putting too much film onto the wind spool? Take the end of the film leader no farther than the RED/ORANGE marker at the spool. Too much film will cause it to bind and start rewinding.

My 35mm film won't load. It keeps rewinding

Solution: Repair or replace auto-rewind system.
Cause: The built in auto-rewind system that supposed to work when film is finished but because it is faulty it receives wrong signal when film is lloaded. So the camera thinks the film is at the end of the roll.
Possible cost: $65-$75

Do i need to rewind film after taking a picture on my diana f+ ??

If you are using 120 film (medium format) you only need to advance the film as far as possible. Then remove the film from the camera and wrap the excess paper around the roll and seal.

When you finish all the pictures on the roll of 35mm film you will need to rewind the film completely before exposing it to light. You can do this by taking the camera in a pitch dark room, removing the film and turning the knob on the top of the film roll until the film has been completely wound back into the the roll.

My Pentax IQZoom 115v overexposes every shot for that lovely "washed out" look we all hate. I only use Kodak slide film ASA 100. I've used IQZoom 900 cameras for decades with excellent results....

First, here's a link to a free download of your camera's manual in case you've lost yours.

On page 16 of the manual, it states that in addition to using DX film of ISO 100 to ISO 400:

1) Color negative film is recommended.
2) Non-DX film cannot be used - but then says if it is used, set the film to ISO 100.
3) ISO 400 film is recommended.

Page 25 and forward detail exposure Modes. This should be your next area of interest in the manual. If you are unable to to solve the problem at this point, there may be an issue with the aperture of the lens being stuck open - or the shutter remaining open for too long. Either way, it will probably need to be serviced professionally to get it working again. You might consider replacing this camera as repair costs may exceed the value of the camera.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply - thank you.

The lever to rewind the finished roll of film is broken.

Sorry an answer is impossible without knowing the exact make and model of camera.

On the lcd it shows "E" "E 9" and I do not know what this means and the camera will not work. What needs to be done

This question has been answered repeatedly. Pentax error codes are mostly for camera repair technician diagnosis and most of the time mean the camera is broken and needs professional servicing. Some Pentax Error Codes:
E: "E" often indicates a film jam. This code can appear when the film is inserted incorrectly, when the batteries are changed in the middle of a roll of film, if you are using defective film, etc. If "E" appears in your camera's information display, try to rewind your film manually (see your user's guide for instructions on how to activate your mid-roll rewind function), and try a different roll. If this problem keeps occurring, you might need to send the camera to us for repair.
E3, E7, E37: These codes often signal a problem with your shutter mechanism.
E9, E93-E97: These codes may indicate a problem with your zoom lens.
H0-H9: These H codes can also identify a problem with your camera's shutter.
U1-U9: These U codes may also indicate a problem with your camera's zoom lens.

These codes are standard for both Digital and film cameras.

My pentax zx-m rewinds new film as soon as i shut the door

When loading film, make sure to draw the film all the way to the receiving spool. If you don't pull the film far enough the camera thinks it's empty and rewinds the film.

Not really, the battery is going to be needed to power the rewind motor.

To try and open the camera, remove the film and rewind it will all have to be done in complete darkness and under such conditions you're likely to break something.

$7.16 is all you need for that battery including shipping:-
