Question about Kodak Advantix T550 Auto Focus APS Point and Shoot Camera

1 Answer

Problems with camera display on kodak APS (something or other......)

I can take the picture but once taken every possible indicator on the display lights up and the camera jams. The only way I can get the shutter thing back down is to take the battery out and then close. When the battery is re-inserted the picture has actually taken and the display shows as it should. When the next picture is taken exactly the same thing happens. I have tried changing the battery but it makes no difference.

Re: Problems with camera display on kodak APS (something...

I am having exactly the same problem (I have a T550). On the last film I shot, the only way to advance the film was to pull the battery out and re-insert it every time. When I printed that film, all the frames are blank! Kodak's FAQ about "clearing the logic" suggests a solution for that problem. 1. Turn camera off 2. Pull battery out 3. Turn camera on 4. Click the shutter approximately 6 times 5. Turn camer off 6. Repeat step 4 7. Reinstall battery I just tried that but the problem persists. I am now going to leave the battery out for several hours; maybe this will help. Otherwise, well it is time to bite the bullet and buy a digital !

Can't find batteries for kodak avantix 3300AF camera

The 3300AF uses CR2 batteries, which should be available at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store. One online source is here.

No manufacturer makes APS film any longer. Kodak discontinued production in around 2004, Fuji in around 2006. You may be able to find it on Ebay or amazon, but it'll be expired or near expiration.

E is flashing all the time when on?? can not open camera to remove film. Camera is locked--battery is new.

The flashing E means that the film has no more exposures left. When this occurs the film is usually automatically rewound into the cassette and the loading door can then be opened.

In your case, the film has not fully rewound and so the door remains locked. A fresh battery usually cures it but has not done so in your case. You can try using a pointed object such as a pen or pencil to press the manual rewind button on top of the camera (below the "select" and "enter" buttons on the top plate) but if that fails then you will need to break open the camera in total darkness to remove and rewind the film.

Breaking the camera seems drastic, but if the camera is broken then it's effectively irreparable anyway. APS cameras were a very badly engineered system and there are very few which are still working these days as the film transport mechanism was simply awful. There were various other problems with them as well, so many don't work for other reasons.

After you recover your film you can either replace the camera with another one (APS film is an almost dead format though) or switch to a conventional 35mm film camera which has better image quality as well due to the larger negatives. Either way, there is absolutely no need to actually pay for one; there are millions of them sitting unused in people's drawers and cupboards and you can either wait for one to be offered on your local FreeCycle/Freegle groups or request one. Note that a rule of these groups is that your first posting MUST be to make an offer, but you're free to respond to offers for items offered by other members.

You might want to consult this online resource from Kodak regarding your camera for further information about it.

Doesn't take pic when button pressed. Rewound whole roll after only 2 pix taken.

Sounds like your picture button is faulty.

In Europe Advantics are supported by Johnsons Utopia, but I'm not sure in US.

Stuck remaining exposure count despite new film, new film unlded

You might try closing the film compartment without film in it and press the manual rewind button. This might reset the counter circuit.
