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.

My 35mm film won't load. It keeps rewinding


Solution: Repair or replace auto-rewind system.
Cause: The built in auto-rewind system that supposed to work when film is finished but because it is faulty it receives wrong signal when film is lloaded. So the camera thinks the film is at the end of the roll.
Possible cost: $65-$75

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.

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.
