Rewind runs but film still seems stuck & won't rewind-Max 3xi

I have had this camera for about 15 years. When I reach the end of the film, the motor cuts on to rewind the film, but the film does not actually rewind. I have taken it to be fixed, it was sent to Minolta and returned to me with the same problem.

It could be that there is a broken or missing gear in the rewind. It will spin but not catch. Sometimes when film is loaded it, is not drawing the film across and missing a gear, so it seems like your taking photos and its not. If you sent it to minolta, good luck, they were bought out by Konica, and probably didnt' do a thorough analysis of it.

I have a friend who fixes cameras. Cleans them, lubricates them, and callibrates them,

Rewind sound when switched from auto focus to manual focus


Probably a problem with the af/m switch so that even though switching to manual moves the connector out of the way (pulls it into the mount) the af motor continues to run. Remover the bottom and then the front cover and check the switch.

How do i rewind the film on the nikon n60?


The camera should rewind the film when it reaches the end of the roll. If it doesn't, or to force a rewind in the middle of a roll, press the mid-roll rewind button with a pointed object. The button is on the bottom of the camera, toward the left end (away from the handgrip), and marked with a roll of film.

I release the small black button on the back of the camera and tried to rewind it but iy won't do it. I am afraid to loose my pictures. Please help me.


On the bottom you have the Film rewind button. On the top you have the film rewind knob with crank . Here are the instructions on how to rewind the film. You can tell you have reached the end of the film by the frame counter and the film advance lever. Either the film advance lever will not turn at all or it will not turn all the way. First press in the rewind button, you may immediately let go of it, its on the bottom as shown before. Then turn the rewind crank clock wise until the frame counter, which counts backwards as you rewind, reaches "S" then open the back cover, remove the film, place it back in its canister and have it developed as soon as possible.

Can't rewind film


It should automatically rewind when the roll is at the end. For mid-roll rewind press both the rewind buttons simultaneously for about 1 sec and the film will rewind.

Minolta 700si rewind Problems


I dont get it! All I know is that almost all of film cameras rewinds when it reaches the end of film. Find the switch that turns off the autorewind function.
