How do you open the film compartment

Film releases are on the sides, or bottoms of cameras. Make sure the film is fully rewinded before you open it (or open it in pitch black, and manually rewind the film into the canister).

I can not open the back of the camera to load new film and battary

The battery gets loaded at the bottem of the camera, and if you use the rewind now which i believe is on the left hand side on the top, if you pull that up it will release the chamber of the back, but make sure you press the button on the bottom in and rewind the film before opening the back, otheriwise your film strip is useless. cause its exposed. :) good luck

I have an old camera given to me by a friend. I think it is a brownie camera? I can't get the thing open. The release latch is stuck so the camera will not open. I think it is broken inside. Any...

Depends on whether it looks like a toy or a camera with adjustable settings like aperture and shutter. I suggest taking it to a camera repair place if its a better model. They may be able to open it another way, then lubricate or replace the latch. If it has not been opened in a long time, it prolly needs Cleaned, Lubricated and Adjust. anyway. Who knows? After shutter speeds are tested & reset, you may be able to actually take pictures with it. Sounds like fun.

120 film is still available at camera stores and online.
Kodak made many that used 120 film, but I don't believe all carried the name Brownie.

I have no idea how to put my film in the "Pentax mz-m" camera? Someone help me. I'm new to this as I am just doing photography at school!

Pull up on the rewind knob ( left side ) to open the film door. put film cassette in chamber then lower rewind knob and pull enough film leader to the take up spool. attach film to spool. close the film door then advance the film to #1 on the counter.

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.

I cannot find the release button on my Vivitar XV-10.

Look for the seam that appears to divide the camea in half, possilby where it will open. Go around that area looking for a latch or button or sliding release. Do Not Force anything, but try to move any part that sticks out toward the sides and see if this will trigger the latch to open it.
If this does not help, you will have to resubmit this question with more infomation on the exact make and model. Good Luck!

Camera keeps rewinding film

Check the manual rewind button on the bottom plate of the camera. Make sure the button is not jammed under the edge of the button opening. If it is you might be able to carefully pry it out with a sharp pin or tooth pick (be careful not to pierce the button or you could damage the circuit board underneath) Or you could remove the bottom plate and reseat the button (be careful of a loose spring to the film door latch)

Removing old film putting in new

The latch to open should be on the side of the camera. The bottom front opens to allow you to remove the film pack
