Sounds like your camera could use a cleaning and oiling, I'd suggest sending it off to Gus Lazzari for repair. He does good reliable work to film cameras. Hope this helps.

My pentax k1000 works great except for when I first load the film. Every time I first load the film, the rewind knob wont rotate when I snap pictures. Everything on the inside is intact and usually I have...

I'm not sure I see a problem here. There is enough slack in the film that the first few exposures can spool out of the canister without it turning. If in doubt, close the back and then _lightly_ turn the rewind crank to take up the slack. Don't force it, just turn it until you feel resistance. Then advance the film and see whether the rewind knob turns.

I finished taking pictures but it didnt rewind. did i load the film wrong? or did the batteries die? or whats up

Have you tried taking just one more pic to see if that triggers the rewind? If that didn't work, most film cameras have a rewind button. Usually on the bottom of camera. If you still can't get your film to rewind, take camera to your nearest photo finisher. They should have a dark box; they can remove your film manually.

I can't get my film to rewind in my camera. Help!!!

  1. there s a small silver button on the bottom that releases the film so it can be rewound
  2. the rewind crank is on the left side on top, a little are flips out to allow you to crank it. Turn in direction of the arrow until you feel the tension release.
If you already did this and you feel hat there is still film in the camera the next question is
  1. did you load the film correctly - if not the film did not advance and thus no tension when you rewound the film
  2. is the film broken off inside the camera - too much pressure when rewinding the film without releases the clutch (little silver button)

I dont know how to load my Nikon 35mm camera. I need instructions

Pull up the film rewind knob to open the back.

Drop the cartridge into the well on the left and, while rotating the rewind knob, push it back down to secure the cartridge.

Pull the leader across and insert it into any of the slots in the takeup spool.

Make sure the film perforations engage the sprocket teeth.

Alternately wind the film lever and press the shutter button until the perforations on both edges of the film engage the sprocket teeth.

Close the camera back, making sure it latches.

Take up the film slack by rotating the rewind knob in the direction of the arrow until you feel resistance.

Make blank exposures until the counter shows "1".

There's a fuller, illustrated set of instructions in the manual, which you can download from

N75 will not load film

Quick solution: force a manual rewind.
1. Remove film
2. Close camera back.
3. With the power turned on, press the two rewind buttons together. They are marked in red.
4. The camera will make a rewind sound and will stop after about 2 seconds.
5. DO NOT fire the shutter yet.
6. Put the mode on Manual and select a fast shutter speed like 1/90 sec. Any aperture will do.
7. Load the film correctly as given in the user's manual.
8. As you close the camera back, the film will prewind to the end of roll. At the end of the roll pre-wind the LCD will show you the total number of frames available.
9. Select any shooting mode.
10. Go on and take pictures.

Hope this helps
