Check the manual rewind button on the bottom plate of the camera. Make sure the button is not jammed under the edge of the button opening. If it is you might be able to carefully pry it out with a sharp pin or tooth pick (be careful not to pierce the button or you could damage the circuit board underneath) Or you could remove the bottom plate and reseat the button (be careful of a loose spring to the film door latch)

Try resetting the camera by pushing both rewind buttons (two buttons with red rewind symbol), and when the motor stops running open and close the back door then try again. If not it could be as simple as a bad release switch (the switches on the N55 and N75 were garbage) or a electronic problem. Also check to make sure you did not pop the shutter blades out of position when loading film. Remove the lens and gently lift up the mirror with a fingernail and make sure the blades are flat.

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.

I own a Minolta 7000 series that was given to me. I do not have the manual for it. On the front of the camera it also says AF. My question is, how do I rewind the film and take it out of my camera. ...


If it's a Minolta Maxxum 7000, it should automatically rewind the film when finished with the roll. To manually rewind the film, open the card door on the right side of the camera and press the rewind button. Open the back cover by pressing the button in the center of the back-cover release and sliding the release downward.

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)

it seems to think you reached the end of the film. Try rewinding. Once in a great while film does not want to exit the canister for whatever reason. It stops. that creates tension, film advance motor stresses out and signals the computer program which tells you that it thinks you're outa film. REWIND!!!

I doubt you did anything wrong. Try rewinding the film. Another possible fix if its electronic issues is to remove power(battery) and reinstall battery.

Wind film?


Behind the LCD screen on the back of the camera, is a a gray button marked "R", and a gray slide switch to the immediate left of that.

Press and hold the R button, while sliding the switch to the left, this can be easily done with one thumb. the display will blink 0 and the motor will stop when rewinding is complete.
