Question about Kodak Advantix 2100 Auto APS Point and Shoot Camera

1 Answer

Stuck remaining exposure count despite new film, new film unlded

Alright, i just got my hands on a Kodak Advantix 2100 Auto APS camera and the previous owner apparently didn't fully use a film cartridge because the pictures remaining count is stuck at 3 and i haven't been able to reset it to load a new cartridge nor have i been able to reset the count to zero in any way. What can i do to resolve this? I have a new cartridge of ISO 400 Advantix film and i would much like to be able to use the camera.

    I tried that but it didn't work. I can now see that it is not a 3, it is an E and it read empty. After trying repeatedly, it eventually fully rewound the new cartridge to the point where it read that it had been processed :/ rendering it useless without ever changing the number of exposures that i had left so now, i have a useless roll of film. The camera has only had one roll of film ever shot with it and it has been in a cabinet untouched for the past 8 years. It has new batteries and the flash still works and so do some parts of the film loading mechanism based on the noises that it made suggesting that it was attempting to load the film.

You might try closing the film compartment without film in it and press the manual rewind button. This might reset the counter circuit.

I have an old Nikon Lite Touch Zoom 100 AF camera and I am having trouble loading the film. Can you use Kodak Advantix APS film in this camera or should I be using manual loading film instead?


This camera uses 35mm film, not APS film. 35mm is a larger format, giving MUCH better results, at the expense of having to manually pull the leader across to the take-up spool each time you load a roll.

Where can you get nikon pronea film


Just look out for APS film, the actual brand doesn't matter as whatever the brand they're all made by the same few companies. Kodak Advantix and Fuji nexia are the most common. Get the 400 version for indoors and dull, overcast days, and 200 for shooting outdoors in bright conditions or indoors with flash.

Although it's effectively a dead format now, you'll still find it widely available online and in larger drugstores and supermarkets. Availability outside of major developed nations is very patchy except in areas which attract international tourists, so if that applies to you then you'll have to order online from a stockist such as Amazon.

APS film is more expensive than traditional 35mm film and produces inferior results as the negatives are smaller. Also, try to avoid buying in a large stock of film as the APS system was very badly designed and engineered, regardless of the camera brand. Most APS cameras are now broken and you shouldn't expect your Nikon Pronea to last long. When it does break it's likely to be the film transport mechanism and that will be the end of it as spares are not available.

Film is stuck in kodak advantix tried a new battery and nothing happens - camera doee nothing


APS cameras are very rarely seen these days because the film loading and advance mechanism was poorly designed and engineered from the start.

Your fault is very common and given that the camera will be irreparable anyway (no spares, plus the small problem that the camera was never designed to be repaired anyway) then you need to decide whether to just chuck it away or whether to break open the camera in total darkness and manually rewind the film back into the cassette for developing.

E is flashing all the time when on?? can not open camera to remove film. Camera is locked--battery is new.


The flashing E means that the film has no more exposures left. When this occurs the film is usually automatically rewound into the cassette and the loading door can then be opened.

In your case, the film has not fully rewound and so the door remains locked. A fresh battery usually cures it but has not done so in your case. You can try using a pointed object such as a pen or pencil to press the manual rewind button on top of the camera (below the "select" and "enter" buttons on the top plate) but if that fails then you will need to break open the camera in total darkness to remove and rewind the film.

Breaking the camera seems drastic, but if the camera is broken then it's effectively irreparable anyway. APS cameras were a very badly engineered system and there are very few which are still working these days as the film transport mechanism was simply awful. There were various other problems with them as well, so many don't work for other reasons.

After you recover your film you can either replace the camera with another one (APS film is an almost dead format though) or switch to a conventional 35mm film camera which has better image quality as well due to the larger negatives. Either way, there is absolutely no need to actually pay for one; there are millions of them sitting unused in people's drawers and cupboards and you can either wait for one to be offered on your local FreeCycle/Freegle groups or request one. Note that a rule of these groups is that your first posting MUST be to make an offer, but you're free to respond to offers for items offered by other members.

You might want to consult this online resource from Kodak regarding your camera for further information about it.

Doesn't take pic when button pressed. Rewound whole roll after only 2 pix taken.


Sounds like your picture button is faulty.

In Europe Advantics are supported by Johnsons Utopia, but I'm not sure in US.
