Re: winding mech stuck??

Check to see if the rubbery rewind button on the camera bottom is cock-eyed or damaged.

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

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.

How do you open the film compartment

Film releases are on the sides, or bottoms of cameras. Make sure the film is fully rewinded before you open it (or open it in pitch black, and manually rewind the film into the canister).

How to rewind roll film in Lomo Action Sampler 35mm Point and Shoot Camera?it stucked

To rewind the film on your camera you push down on the rewind handle on the top left of the camera (as viewed from behind) and turn the rewind handle clockwise until no more resistance is felt.

Once the film has been rewound, slide down the catch on the left edge of the camera body and open the door on the back of the camera.

Courtesy of you can download part one of the manual here and part two here.

If after all this, the camera is broken then it cannot usually be repaired: it's designed and built as cheaply as possible as a toy camera and is only designed to last for a few rolls of film. Spare parts are not available, but some broken parts can be adapted or fabricated from whatever is to hand to do the job.

Based upon the question you asked, my reply should have solved your problem so please take a moment to rate my answer. If the problem has not been solved then add a comment instead and I'll be happy to provide further assistance.

Why is the film automatically rewinding around 15 shots instead of the end of the 24 shot roll? The batteries are fresh.

the roll sensor is not reading the silver code on the film roll.
Open the camera when you have no film in it.
Clean the film roll slot where the "fingers" are.
These fingers touch the case of the film roll to determine the film type, which includes the number of exposures. You nmay have to "adjust" the fingers so that they make good contact with the film roll case.

Look at different rolls of film, notice the silver blocks are different. If the roll has a "dent" on it, it can't be sensed correctly.

Hope this helps!

There are two conditions under which a blinking "H" will appear in the
LCD panel: (1) when the film has been loaded incorrectly or (2) when the
camera's self-test process detects an internal malfunction. If a
blinking "H" indication appears, perform the following operations in
attempt to resolve the situation:

1. Rewind and remove the film using the rewind button, then remove the
battery to clear the memory.

2. Clean the contacts at the base of the battery compartment with a
clean pencil eraser to ensure proper contact between the camera and

3. Replace the battery, power the camera back up1.gif and operate it as if
it had film loaded, pressing the shutter release.

Nikon one touch zoom 90 camera

I bought this camera at Value Village for $1.99. It came up with an E. I assumed this was an E for empty. I loaded a film and it is fine.

Hope you can help!!!!

there should be a small but long narrow window on the back of the camera that should tell you if theres film in ther or not. to open the camera, flip the rewinding crank (located on the top left) and pull up until the back pops open.
