How to know if battery is low?

When you turn the power ON (turn the dial from OFF to AUTO), in the viewfinder a green lamp on the right will light for about one second, this indicates battery level is sufficient.

So, it's not possible to know how much longer the battery will last etc, best to carry a spare battery.

As a rough guide, the manual states the shooting capacity is 18 rolls of 24-exp film with 50% flash use.

Hope this helps :)

Can i use any 9 volt battery in the kodak k12? If

Yes, usually there is a sticker inside the battery chamber that shows the correct orientation of the contact. If stick is missing, the contact go in first. If the camera wont work, turn the battery over and try again If a new battery wont work at all the camera may be gone.

If the battery is low in my Minolta freedom zoom camera, will the film be pulled back into the roll?

No. If the camera pulled the film back into the roll with a low battery, you wouldn't be able to take any pictures, rendering the film, useless. Don't worry about it, and if it REALLY bugs you, keep fresh batteries in it.

Why is the film automatically rewinding around 15 shots instead of the end of the 24 shot roll? The batteries are fresh.

the roll sensor is not reading the silver code on the film roll.
Open the camera when you have no film in it.
Clean the film roll slot where the "fingers" are.
These fingers touch the case of the film roll to determine the film type, which includes the number of exposures. You nmay have to "adjust" the fingers so that they make good contact with the film roll case.

Look at different rolls of film, notice the silver blocks are different. If the roll has a "dent" on it, it can't be sensed correctly.

Hope this helps!

Camera goes into Shut Down Mode & Flashes the Letter H

Hey sonax,
This H error message means either the film is loaded incorrectly, or there is an internal malfunction in the camera. To determine if the film is loaded incorrectly you should take the film and the batteries out of the camera then reinstall the batteries and try taking a picture without film in the camera. If the camera allows it then the film was loaded incorrectly and I would refer to the camera manual for directions on how to load the film correctly. If the H error message persists then there is most likely an internal malfunction and I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps!

Fuji 35mm Camera (Model DL-400)


remove the battery and check that it is good. replace battery and open back door, close the door and it should run the motor / transport. if so, load film up to the drive sprocket being sure film will catch on the sprocket.
or move the latch holding back cover, and open the door fully. check the pressure plate on the door, gently pull the plate up a little to increase pressure on the film. bring the holding lever out toward the latch and close the door to lock the lever back to position.

Make sure the flash is coming up all the way. If it gets stuck even slightly down from fully raised, it will do what you describe.

I agree, digital P&S won't work as well as your Olympus. Plus all your shots will have to be stored on a hard drive-

Flashing HI

there is a flexible ribbon cable carrying signals from camera body to the lense assembly. Due to regular use it gets worn out, thus it gets broken and is not able to perform the task for which the camera has given the signal. in your camera also the same flex cable is broken. Get it changed at some good repairer
