Film doesn't load

My camera stopped working a few years ago, but I recently found it again while unpacking boxes. I remember loving this camera and apparently kept it - just in case I can figure out how to fix it! Anyway, when I drop the film in the camera, it isn't loading the film. As I remember, the film should automatically load. I've checked the owner's manual - the film is new (in the '1' position). I've tried loading it both while the camera is on and while the camera is off. If I remember correctly, the problem started when I had a roll of film in the camera and it wouldn't roll itself up after it finished - nor would it roll itself when the manual rewind button was used. I took it to a camera shop and they were unable to fix it. As I recall, I kept fiddling with the manual rewind button, and eventually it worked; however, ever since then, it has never loaded another roll of film. I imagine I will have to ship this off if I want to get it repaired. I guess my big question is - does this sound like an expensive problem? I may be better off just getting a new camera, but I hate to get rid of this one if the problem can be easily fixed. Thanks!

I've got Nikon F65. I cannot load film. The motor which load up the film doesn't move at all. Please help!

I don't know this model but you can try this.Drop the film canister in and pull the film strip out and place on the film advance sprocket.Rotate the sprocket by hand/thumb until film is seated (1 turn). If the auto feed is working you will be OK. 2 other things ,1 of course load film in dark area, 2 check the batteries on the camera first, if they are week your film advance wont work ,Good Luck.

Were can you buy film .

Original Polaroid film ceased production a few years ago and so remaining stocks are all so long out of date that the built-in camera batteries are either totally dead or have just enough power to eject the cover slide before failing. There are suppliers of old stock film on sites like eBay, but unless you have modified your camera to take an external 6v dc power supply then you'll be wasting your money. Some suppliers claim the film has been kept fresh via refrigerated storage, but this only extends the life of the photo chemicals: cold storage kills batteries even more quickly.

There is one company, The Impossible Project, which has recently started to produce film for your camera with the approval of Polaroid. Their product only has eight shots per pack instead of the original ten, and currently it's only available in black and white but colour film is planned for production in the near future.

I hope that I've helped, if so please take a moment to rate my answer.

I just bought new Lomo Fisheye2 camera. I read the instruction first before i will do anything to my camera. Once i read everything, i just follow the instruction step by step. Putting AA battery and...

If your film was TOTALLY blank then it's been bleached due to a processing error. By totally blank, I mean that there are no frame numbers or other film markings on your blank film. Otherwise, you simply have an unexposed film.

First, operate the camera with the camera back open, hold the camera up to a bright light and operate the camera as you look into the back of the lens. If you see a brief bit of light coming through as you operate the shutter then the shutter is admitting light into the camera and so you should have got some kind of an image unless you failed to correctly load the film (very common).

Unfortunately, there's no way to tell unless you try another roll of film. Once the film is loaded, turn the rewind crank gently to take up slack film and take a few pictures; each time you advance the film the rewind crank should turn a little. If it doesn't then the film has not been correctly loaded as the film leader has not engaged onto the take-up spool. If so, open the camera and re-engage the film. If it clearly has engaged, then the take-up spool is failing to rotate when the film is advanced: try taking a few shots and winding on the film with the back open. If the film is not advancing then you have a faulty Lomo. This is extremely common as it is a plastic toy camera with atrocious build quality and materials and is the FishEye is only designed for paltry ten rolls of film lifespan.

A final check for film which has not advanced through the camera is if the rewind is extremely short when the film has finished.

I am looking for my polaroid camera film. 600 plus

It's been out of production now for about two years. Any you do find will be past the expiry date, so you'll likely either find that the battery pack has insufficient power to last an entire film pack or that the film itself is "off" and has poor colours and that the emulsion does not get squeezed by the film rollers into the photo corners.

Any film packs you do find are likely to be expensive AND a total gamble. A company was recently reported to have announced plans to put the film packs back into production next year, but prices are likely to be at least £30 for just one (ten photo) film pack and I've heard nothing more since then.

What I did with my old Polaroid camera was to fit an external 6v battery pack of my own design to the camera. I then kept an eye out for old stock film packs which have been kept refrigerated; this meant that the batteries in the film packs were always flat but the photo chemistry itself remained fresh and fully usable. I'd post links showing you how I modified the camera, but lost interest a few months ago and sold the camera and photo packs to an enthusiastic photography student. It is a straightforward job though which simply involves opening the camera, soldering one wire to each of the two battery terminals and then running the wires out through the base of the camera to any suitable 6v battery pack. I used a slim LiPo battery left over from a dead digital camera.

The battery comes in the same package of the film, altough there's no new film been mada AT ALL. If you find one buy as much as you can. There's no battery and no where to put it besides with the film.

I do not know how to load or unload the 35 mm film.

The cartridge will only go in one way. install and pull film to marked line (should have a few notches in the film strip past gear) close camera and either wind until it stops or if batt powered it will load itself then ready to roll

The battery only powers the meter needle. The aperture match needle is controlled by the lever that is to the right of the mirror box. You can see it with the lens off while looking at the mount. It may be bent or damaged.
