Question about Canon EOS Rebel GII with 35-80 lens 35mm Film Camera

1 Answer

Film Loading Error

I had placed a roll of film in my Canon Rebel film camera, and when I closed the door, it did not begin prewinding as it should have. Thinking that maybe I was going crazy and I just didn't hear it, I decided to take a test shot. When I clicked the botton to take a picture, I heard a long lasting, unhealthy film winding sound. Also the film icon was flashing. I took the camera in the dark room so I could open the back and reload the film, but the film was gone, and the roll was empty. I'm thinking the film is somewhere tangled inside my camera; it has to be somewhere in there. I have never had a problem with this camera before. I have had it for only a year. What should I do?

This also happens to Yashicas often. (though instead of stirpping the film, it will rewind it back into the roll. Something's wrong with either the firmware or the drive system. It'll need to be taken to a camera repair shop, or you'll have to send it back to Canon for warranty service, if it's still within warranty.

Hello, Please help me I love my camera! The last 3 rolls of film I have taken only the last half of the roll come out the first part of the film is black I'm only getting half of the pictures I take. It's...


Most likely this is a shutter problem. If you are using flash and getting the half pictures, then make sure the flash is a canon compatible flash and the synch is set to 60th. If the problem is all the time including non-flash pictures, then the shutter will have to be repaired.

You can check the shutter without film in the camera. Remove the lens and open the film door. You will see the cloth curtains of the shutter in the center. Advance the film lever to **** the shutter and set the speed dial to a slower speed like 1/15. Hold the camera so it is aimed a a light source, (a window will do) and fire the shutter. You should see the light through the shutter for the time duration is is set to. (1/15). If you see the light source, repeat the process going up one speed setting until you reach 1/1000. If you see the shutter open and close as described, then try another roll. After you load the film and close the back door, make note of what the rewind knob is doing as you advance the film. It should spin counter-clockwise each time. That is a easy test to know that the film is traveling in the camera properly. Vary your exposures with the new roll at different speeds and f-stops. You should get exposures, but if not let us know.

Nothing shows up on the film!


The Ilford Delta 400 Professional is indeed DX coded. Since the camera does not allow you to check the shutter without film inside, there's no way we can confirm the shutter is working properly. So only option is a service center. Since all other things are working properly, it should be a simple repair.

Canon EOS Rebel K2 constant low battery indicator light


Canon also uses the low battery Icon as a generic error code. Try taking the lens off the camera. If this fixes the problem the lens needs a repair (most likely the aperture unit). If not then the camera needs the repair (either the shutter or dc-dc converter circuit).
