Make sure the batteries are in good shape. The film discharge reqluires that the camera has enough charge to function

SOURCE: where and how do you insert film on a minolta

Essentially, you probably don't as APS film is no longer made and is getting difficult to get processed if you do get some old stock.

But like on all APS cameras, there's a lock on one end of the camera and usually you turn it to open a small door on the bottom of the camera. The APS film cassette gets pushed into the compartment and when you close the door and the camera *should* wind the film ready for shooting and lock the door so that you cannot open it until the film is rewound. The cameras are entirely battery dependent and many used CR2 lithium batteries which are disproportionately expensive and hard to find except from online suppliers.

Unfortunately APS was a badly engineered system from the start, so the cameras didn't tend to last long before suffering major faults. You may wish to bear that fact in mind as those faults won't show until you load a film and any film you do find will likely cost more than you can buy another APS camera for. They're widely available for free or for about a £ or two from almost any charity shop (not from the one I work in though as I always put them straight into the recycling bin as they're a liability).

Where can I get film for Minolta Vectis 300 camera online?


The Vectis 300 uses APS film, which is almost a dead thing. You can still find some here. If you need a manual, you may download a copy here.

CANT BUY FILM FOR CAMERA ARE THEY OBSOLETE


No manufacturer makes APS film any longer. Kodak discontinued production in around 2004, Fuji in around 2006. You may be able to find it on Ebay or amazon, but it'll be expired or near expiration.

How do I open the compartments on the camera


Which compartments?

The lid on the battery compartment next to the tripod mount flips down.

To open the film compartment, turn the camera upside down, then turn the film chamber release clockwise.

Exposed film cartridge will not eject.


Well, I'm not sure exactly what I did, but the problem is solved. I opened the case to see if I could get the film out that way, but it would have entailed totally disassembling the camera, and I didn't want to do that. I put the case back on and tried the manual rewind button, which wouldn't work before. It rewound the film this time, and I was able to eject the cartridge. So I don't know exactly what the problem was or what I did that fixed it, but the camera is working properly now!
