Re: film wound on wrong side of camera
It sounds like you have a jam.
When you have finished taking shots and have used all the film, you must press the film-rewind button on the underside of the camera; this does not rewind the film, but allows you to commence the next step.
Once you have done this, flip up the rewind-crank on the top left hand side of the camera. It is situated on top of the film speed dial. turn this clockwise until all the film is back in its cartridge.
You should now be able to open the back of the camera.
I hope you have fun with your t50!

The mechanism won't re-engage until you open the door (camera back) and shut it again, then wind on and fire a few shots as if starting a new film. You could open and shut the door in total darkness, and then waste a few shots to carry on with the film in the camera, but the frame counter will be wrong. Unless there is a lot of film left on the cassette, you might as well just rewind it and start again with a new film. Yes, you will probably be paying more than you should for the processing and printing of a partial film, but you will get your pics.
Have you tried taking just one more pic to see if that triggers the rewind? If that didn't work, most film cameras have a rewind button. Usually on the bottom of camera. If you still can't get your film to rewind, take camera to your nearest photo finisher. They should have a dark box; they can remove your film manually.
to rewind the film back into the tin look underneath the camera you will see a button, press this, it will disengage the winding mechanism, looking on top of the camera to the left you see a knob. flip out the handle and start to turn this clockwise until you hear a click and the turning become a little easier. if it is hard to turn, ensure the button undeneath is still pushed in. once the film is wound back, lift this knob this should open the back door and of the camera and release the spent film can.
take your new film and take it out if its platic container. place the old film in the same container for safe keeping til it goes to processing.
place the new film into the camera on the left side with the brown tab of the film laying over the shutter window in the middle. press in the winder knob to help hold the film container in place. pull out the end of the film and guide it over the two wheels with teeth ensureing that the teeth fit into the perferation holes in the film. slide the film across the camera to the roller on the oposite side. slightly wind the camera on help guide the film tab into the slot once in the slot slowly wind the camera on ensuring that the film is running smoothly over the shutter gate. now close the back of the camera which should click to lock. now wind on the film until the winder leaver stops check the ASA or IOS rating of your film from the box it came in. and ensure this setting is correct on the setting wheel on the right. if your camera has automatic film recognition then this is not necessary. you are now ready to start taking pictures again.
I have used left/right as if you are holding the camera ready to take pictures. I have included the instructions to rewind the finished film.
!/ Press and hold the film rewind button button on the right side of the camera base. 2/ Fold out the rewind crank top left of camera and turn it in the direction of the arrow. 3/ Once the pressure eases, the film is completely wound into the cassette. 4/ Lift up the film rewind knob top left of camera and pull it out to open the back cover. Now the film cassette can be taken out. 5/ Do this in a place away from direct sunlight.
Get a dummy film and put it in the camera , make shure that the film is fully loaded on to the take up spool and test it all the way through, It sounds like the film is coming off the take up spool. I have repaired a lot of these A1's and they don't suffer from this problem. yours Tim 01689 818009..
Possibly the film did not go through the camera. If it did, the problem may be the 2nd(or closing)curtain magnet on the bottom of the camera.
When the magnet is working the closing curtain of the shutter is held back 1 to 1000 miliseconds-depending on the shutter speed selected by you. 1ms=1/1000 sec. 1000ms=1 sec.
You can tell by 1. removing the lens 2.setting the shutter speed to the "B" setting 3. opening the film door and looking through the camera 4. releasing or firing the camera and keeping pressure on the release button. If the magnet is working, the shutter will stay open as long as the release button is kept pressed down. The closing curtain will close as soon as the release button is released.
When the magnet fails, both curtains travel across the film plane together and no exposure is made. Sometimes there is corrosion on the magnet where the wires connect. Sometimes there is some foreign substance or object that interferes with the face of the metal unit that attaches to the magnet when the camera is wound. Sometimes the magnet just fails and needs to be replaced.
If the magnet checks out OK the problem may be in the circuits that control the release of the magnet. If this is the problem, the camera needs to be looked at by a competent repair shop. Just so you know, new parts are getting hard to come by, but there are tons of used cameras around that parts can taken from. Hope this helps.
