Canon T90 Problems Loading Film

I recently purchased a Canon T90 for a photography class I'm taking. When I insert the film into the back of the camera the confirm loaded symbol (looks like @ in bottom right of LCD screen) only appears if I push the film down with my finger. If I just put the film in (align the leader, etc) and close the back it will show that it is loaded. However, after some time has passed I will hear the camera start winding the film automatically and obviously the "1" in the frame counter will disappear. When I open the back, the leader has been completely wound into the roll of film. When I bought this camera, the company rated it in excellent condition so it makes me think I am doing something wrong. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.

OK, the problem is that film door switch is faulty.
It needs alignment.

I can record, i can take pictures inside or when it is night but i can not take pictures with the light of the day or when there is a strong light. I can see from the lcd monitor the icon bute when i take...


You have the ISO Setting set too high. This is the setting that in a film camera was called 'film speed'. The higher the ISO, the better it will take pictures in low light. Yours may be set to 3,800 ISO, when it needs to be on 200 or 400. The light during the day is bleaching out the sensor and that is what you are seeing on the screen. Also the higher the ISO, the more grain you will see in images.

Understanding ISO - A Beginner's Guide - Photography Life

https://photographylife.com > Photography Tutorials
Sep 4, 2017 - The lower the ISO number, the less sensitive it is to the light, while a higher ISO number increases the sensitivity of your camera. The component within your camera that can change sensitivity is called "image sensor" or simply "sensor".

My Canon EAS Film Rewind Knob is rolling my new film back into the cassette instead of into the camera...please help.


That's what the rewind knob is all about: It will allow you to rewind the film back into the cassette to avoid it to be exposed to the light and therefore losing your pictures.

When loading the film you must insert the film into the receiving spool by hand while the camera back is open. Make sure to advance the start enough so that the spool will 'stick' to the film.

Film won't load on Minolta 400si Maxxum Camera


My daughter took the camera to her photography teacher he was able to load the film by wrapping more film around the roller. It's not as easy to load as my Canon. I thought we had put plenty of film around it already. Oh well, it's working anyway.

Film loading problem Minolta Maxxum 430SI RZ


not solution, but a suggestion, something to look for/try.
i think it is trying to tighten it and take up the slack in the spool. there might be little red dots or something like that on the inside when you open it up. you are supposed to have the film go to a certain spot before you close it. normally, the film is sticking out the right length, but you might have to pull it out extra first. you might also have to tuck the end of the film behind a roller or in front of a roller before you close it. look for really tiny diagrams inside the camera, or maybe just tiny arrows indicating which way the film is supposed to wind. good luck with your class!

Canon A1- Just stopped working


Get a dummy film and put it in the camera , make shure that the film is fully loaded on to the take up spool and test it all the way through, It sounds like the film is coming off the take up spool. I have repaired a lot of these A1's and they don't suffer from this problem. yours Tim 01689 818009..
