The camera is not dependant on the battery so changing it will not help.

In order to operate the camera you need to wind on to prime the shutter for firing.


The most common fault that jams these cameras is a catch under the bottom cover. A camera repair person will know what to do about that, but it might not be that.

This is closely related to the K1000 so any solution for that camera will apply.

To see how to open the camera up for repair and how to do this properly there is a camera repair site which deal with this and other cameras in detail. alternatively you can contact the author who can offer a very competitive camera repair service for these models.

I finished taking pictures but it didnt rewind. did i load the film wrong? or did the batteries die? or whats up


Have you tried taking just one more pic to see if that triggers the rewind? If that didn't work, most film cameras have a rewind button. Usually on the bottom of camera. If you still can't get your film to rewind, take camera to your nearest photo finisher. They should have a dark box; they can remove your film manually.

Camera indicator in back that shows how many pictures are left wont shut off and it drains the batteries because of this , it is a canon eos rebel k2 model, thanks for any help


That's entirely correct and normal, but the battery drain caused by the film counter is absolutely insignificant: think how long digital watch batteries last and they have far less power than your camera battery.

If the battery drains rapidly when the camera is not being used then there is something else causing the problem. Make sure that the camera is kept with a lens cap on when stored and not in use and consider removing the battery, although doing so for extended periods means that the camera will lose it's memory.

Canon EOS Rebel S taking bad pictures


Your camera has a faulty shutter or shutter timer.

Given that you can buy a perfectly good Rebel S for anywhere between £1 to £25 on Ebay it's not economical to repair it.

Canon EOS Rebel K2 constant low battery indicator light


Canon also uses the low battery Icon as a generic error code. Try taking the lens off the camera. If this fixes the problem the lens needs a repair (most likely the aperture unit). If not then the camera needs the repair (either the shutter or dc-dc converter circuit).

White balence


The EOS Rebel K2 is a film camera. White balance settings on digital cameras are an electronic 'adjustment' to the image sensor. In film cameras, the film is the image sensor. So white balance is dependent partially on the film you're using, but more often on the filters you add to the lens to correct for various lighting conditions and light sources.

Like i said before i do not know how to advance the camera


Here is Canon's spec page for your camera. CanonUSA

The camera is a preloader. It rolls all of the film out of the canister and winds it back as you take pictures. Read the film transport section. You have installed a battery in the camera right?
