I am getting orange/brown stripes across my prints. I think I have the mode setting incorrect. At what setting should I have for indoor and outdoor use? I have it on " auto " at all times...

It's difficult to diagnose this definitively without seeing the images, burt there is no mode or function on your camera which would do that.

The most likely cause by far is that there is light leaking into the back of your camera. It's a very common fault as the original foam seals are unstable and eventually turn to sticky goo before drying out and turning to powder.

You could replace the light seals, but as cameras similar and even far better than yours are literally ten a penny at any charity/thrift shop and can usually be obtained totally free just by asking around then I have to go against my usual instincts and say don't bother.

What film does this camera require and where can I get one at? I recently just received it as a gift however I don't know a thing about how it works nor how it functions! Please help!

You probably should take it into a camera shop and ask for help. For the price of a film they will get you started, show you how to load it, and so on.

On loading a fresh film into the camera the motor winds through to the last frame ie does not stop at first frame

That's entirely correct. Your camera winds all of the film out upon loading and each shot then winds the film back into the canister. Your frame counter works in countdown mode telling you how many shots remain rather than how many you've taken.

Many other camera do the same thing. The beauty of it is twofold: if the camera back is accidentally opened, then the shots already taken are safely in the film canister (except for the last shot), also when the film has finished you wait less time for the short length remaining to be rewound rather than the entire roll.

Shooting out film

Unfortunately you have a broken camera and it's not really fixable. There are plenty of free/cheap examples on FreeCycle and in thrift/charity shops but as you've discovered to your cost there's only one rather expensive way to find out whether they work...

I've just bought a Polaroid 600 camera off ebay and used the intructions on the Polaroid site to load the film. It said that once loaded and after the film door has been shut it would eject the film cover...

If the camera is showing no signs of life at all then you probably have an old stock photo pack loaded into it. These have the camera battery built in to them and like all batteries have a finite shelf life.

If you have a voltmeter then remove the photo pack and measure the voltage on the electrical contact points on the underside, if it's below a steady 6v then the battery is dead. If not the camera is dead and you can pick replacements up for less than the cost of a photo pack from thrift/charity shops and there's plenty of free ones available on Yahoo FreeCycle

Can't take pictures.


pentax codes are in repair manuals, not instruction manuals. H3 indicates shutter failure. this means anything from the flex circuit on the zoom barrel ( inside ) to the shutter itself. camera needs repaired.

Canon Sure Shot 105 ZOOM ~TOTALLY LOST ~need any instructions I can get.

The flashing H means hat the camera has detected a hardware fault on starting up. It can also mean that the film has mis-loaded. Try removing the film & then the battery to reset it. Put the battery back & switch on. If it's still doing it then I'm afraid it's got the 'flashing "H" of Doom'. Although this is repairable, it's usually not economically viable.
