Sound like your shutter is not opening and will need to be serviced.

Generally this may mean it requires a full over haul and may not be cheap.
Sorry for the bad news.

Why is film clear after developing? Using bulk load Tmaxx 400


Sounds like the camera isn't working. It would appear the shutter doesn't function because you have no images at all. I would open up the camera and check this. (Empty of film of course).

Why is a black border around my developed film?


The black border around your film is the part that did catch light. The light on dropped on a negative film comes up black. If the cassette the file was in had a leak, and it was in bright light, that could be the culprit. But if a second silk also has a black border, check the camera, if there is a possibility light can come in on the back.

Developed film pictures have black around the edges


My guess would be that whatever lens your using is causing that. The black edges are basically caused because the lens may not be fit the camera correctly, causing the camera to "see" part of the lens itself when taking a photo.

Developing a film without opening the camera


Am i right in thinking the keystone is a old 8mm movie camera? Never had any experience with movie cameras, or developing their film- I'm goin to assume its like 35mm developing, apologies if this is completly useless advice.
I'm fairly certain you will not be able to develop film in camera (camera will end up pretty wet). If the problem you have is actually getting film out o the camera I'd suggest a changing bag- basically a light tight bag that you put the camera in with your developing tin (if your home developing) or canister if your using a lab, you then have to put your hands inside 2 holes either side and transfer your film from camera to developing container- blind.
I'd advise doing a couple practice runs first with some old unused film just to get the hang of it- it can be tricky.
Again I have no experience with 8mm film processing but I'd imagine the principles are similiar.
You can get hold of changing bags from most photographic retailers, and always follow instructions that came with your film.

Black line across top of all my developed pictures


You have light leak somewhere to the film.
Usually from the bad film door seal.

Blank Film Developing

you should have at least 6in. of exposed film from the film canister to the take-up spool unless you loaded the film in total darkness.
open the back cover to make sure the shutter is working, reload and give it another try.

Maxxum camera no color


I think your camera had a microchip in it that changes modes. I could be wrong, I can't remember exactly what model it was. Take the chip out or reset it in the menu. How old is the film you are using? There is some film that is color film but a black and white emulsion. That can be developed in color processing.

Film developing clear


Hello

This problem could have a number of causes,

To check to see if it is a camera fault of developing fault you could try using a cheap colour film in the camera and getting it developed at a normal photo processor.
This will determine in which half of the process the fault lies.
If the pictures from the colour film are the same then it must be a camera usage problem or fault.
If the pictures are ok from the colour film then it will be a problem in either the film being used, developing problem (poor mix of chemicals etc).

This will just speed up the diagnosis a bit.

I have a very nice 35 mm nokia camera with a zoom lens and lately when i get the pics developed, the pics come back blank or black. what could be the problem?


Black pictures mean under exposed or un- exposed film

Underexposed film can mean incorrectly set up or metering failure
Un exposed film simply means the shutter has failed
Open camera and look through the back and operated the shutter
Does it work?

Film is not developing


It's hard to tell without looking at the film itself, and it would help to know what type of film you are using (black and white? color?). My guess would be a light leak. If the film is exposed to any light, that results in a black picture, possibly blotches of color. Either you opened the camera before you rolled the film back into the canister (unlikely), or your camera is responsible for the light leak, in which case, you will have to bring it to a repair shop.
