I have the same problem as you. Pictures are in black and photo cartridges already wasted 3. Today I opened my camera and not a spring tea that is attached to the lever capture modes (sunny, noblado etc) was detached. Because I remember when the camera is turned on (pulling the lens) capture modes to move too. So every time you take a photo you must manually set the capture mode, and it stopped working. I hope it is resolved by attaching the spring. You already solved?
An invisible film probably formed over the contacts of the camera body and lens where they meet. When you removed/attached the lens, you slightly cleaned that area. You should now clean it properly with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.
I dont have an exact guide but there should be 5 screws to remove to take the camera apart. There is either 4 screws holding the lcd in place or 3 plastic clips. gently remove the ribbon cable that is attached to the lcd from the main board. Its actually pretty easy to to do. just becareful on not hitting any sensors. If you get stuck anywhere or cant find a screw let me know and ill try taking mine apart again and we can go from there. Thanks, Midwest-tek
Once you have all the screws out, seperate from the bottom first and then gently pry at the top sides to break the factory seal. The screen has a thin strip of black tape along the right edge you can pull off. Lift up on the screen to reveal the attached electronic strip attached to the board. It is attached with a grey strip that is hinged, just lift up to remove the strip. Replace with the new screen and reassemble your covers.
Remove the battery and leave the door open. The door operates a micro switch to shut power off to the camera.
Once you have a tri-wing screw driver start by removing the three tri-wing screws first. These should be located on the side where the hand strap is attached. Then you can undo the rest of the screws ( 5 on the bottom and 2 on the other side). Now pull the cowl away from the side of the camera with the hand strap. It should just unclip when you pull it. This should reveal the side of the two outer cases. The rear case is still attached on this side by a small screw and two more on the top by the zoom / picture button. Once these are removed lift the rear case up from the other end first so that you can release the ribbon for the keypad or just flip it over so that it lays flat next to the camera but still attached by the ribbon. the screen should now be visible but you may have to flip this over so that you can remove the bracket for the screen (the socket is visible underneath it and you can remove the screen with the bracket inplace but I find it easier to remove the bracket).
Be very careful when you lift the bracket clear as it is close to the flash and while the camera is off (and with the battery removed and the door open) the flash is still charged and can give quite a shock!
Now all you have to do is release the locking tab on the socket for the screen and remove the ribbon and then replace with the new one. Then reassmble the camera
1.The film leader should be placed correctly. 2. the ASA detecting pins in the film champers should be clean. 3. Check for any buttons being in pressed conditions. 4.See whether the frame counter resets when opening the door 5.Then try with a mechanic.
When you say "brand new" film, the battteries could easily be dead (or too low) if this is old, unused film. The camera's batteries are in the film pack....
I don't think true SX-70 film has been made for years. There is one Austrian company making film for it or people adapt newer film packs to it (read-up on internet).
First thing is to see if the contacts are clean and then to check the battery voltage in the film pack.
You could have battery contacts (in the camera) that need cleaning. Clean contacts with a pencil eraser, scotchbrite or very fine sandpaper.
Try looking online for voltage information. It might be helpful if you can check that.
Looking at camera from the front, the flash hinge is on the right hand side. Mine was corroded (due to sea spray).
I removed the two arms which limit the travel of the flash, MAKE SURE YOU KNOW WHICH WAY UP THEY GO AND ON WHICH SIDE! remove the three very small screws which hold the cover on the flash and remove the cover.
Now you can ease the bearing our and clean with Iso-propyl alcohol. Do not oil!.
Reassemble and ensure it moves freely.
If the LCD is still operational, then a self repair with self adhesive clear tape will do the trick.
Some photoshops the UK sell a self adhesive film to put over screens as a protector[how about India anything like like over there?- what about mail order from the U.K. ?
Try www,jessops.com -for the film that is
As for a proper repair - then it will have be a full replacement only your local repair shop will be able to advise you of a price.
