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!

You need the camera powered up and all the film used to activate the release mechanism for the lock to release the film door, the Elph film door will not open until all the pictures have been taken. It uses A CR2 Lithium battery

How do you put the film in in a olympus superzoom 105g


Open the back, gently blow out any dust that might have gotten in there. Load film in the shade. Take the film cassette out of the plastic container and insert it with the protruding piece on the bottom into the left side of the film compartment. Gently pull the film out to the right about 3-4 inches. Try to keep the film flat across the shutter opening but Be Careful you don't touch the Shutter Blades! Feed the film under the take-up spindle and through the vertical slot and hook the film into a sprocket. Push down the shutter release button and advance the film a couple times. Close the camera back securely. You are ready to go! Good luck

Can't open vivitar 5388


Use the rewind knob to rewind the film. Once the film is rewound, lift the knob up and the back should open. Then you can remove the film cassette and insert a new cassette and load the film.

My nikon n55 is flashing err after installing new film


It could be that your camera doesn't know it's rewound the film already. With the camera turned on, push and hold BOTH manual rewind buttons simultaneously - one near the release button ( +/- ) and the other toward the front of the camera at the lens release button. Try the release button again.

Unloading my medium format camera


If i remember correctly there should be a button on the bottom of the camera opposite side of the film winder if you press that button it will release the tension on the film and allow you to reel the film back into the film canistor.BE CAREFUL when reeling it back in because you can reel the whole roll back into the film canistor, when you think your getting towards the end go SLOW you will feal the reel loosen up alot.that means that the film has let go of the other side STOP and you can open the case without exposong your film.GOOD LUCK if this helps rate me or leave some more info.Thanks.
