Wgokey1,
yes it should auto rewind. if it's new take it back to where you bought it. if not new, get an estimate cost before repaired.

I have a 36 exposure film in the camera with 25 pictures taken and I want to remove the film without taking more photos. How do I rewind?


To rewind the film mid-roll, press the two film rewind buttons simultaneously for one second. The two buttons are marked with a red film symbol, and double as the Auto Exposure Bracketing button to the left of the viewfinder and the Aperture/Exposure Compensation button to the right of the control panel.

The film is completely rewound when a blinking "E" shows in the control panel.

The Rewind has broken


The first thing you need to do to establish whether there's really a problem is to replace the film. It seems like after the battery change the camera simply rewound the film.

If the shots are special and you don't want the risk of ruining them, open the back of the camera in total pitch black darkness and then feel to check whether the film is rewound or not.

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)

How to open filnm compartment of old 35mm nikon


Is it an SLR model?

I am not familiar with Nikons; however, Minolta and Canon SLR film camera's film compartments are opened by lifting up on the film rewind mechanism on the top left side of the camera.

If the Nikons are designed like Minolta and Canon, there will be a small tab to push in at the bottom of the camera. This releases the film and allows it to be rewound. At the top left will be a small rewind lever that is used to do the rewind. The part of the camera that the rewind lever is attached to is pulled up to open the back of the camera.

CAN NOT OPEN FILM LATCH


If this is an SLR style camera, you need to press a small silver button on the bottom while pulling up on the rewinder knob. If it's automatic, there is a button you have to press on the side latch before you are able to open the film chamber. Some newer cameras will not allow you to open the back unless the film has been rewound, so you may need to insert a battery to rewind the film before you can open the latch.

Minolta Maxxumm 4 - rewinding too soon


Hey Pix4me,
I would make sure that the manual rewind button on the back of the camera is not stuck in, or you're not accidentally hitting the manual rewind button. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

Problems rewinding film.


Your film is already rewound (if I understood you correctly). Your camera is beeping because the film is rewound and there is no film for the camer to take the photo on since it has been rewound.
