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.

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.

Photography Class Camera


Hello, depending on the class he is taking you may find that a normal digital camera will suffice. Most camera classes and courses now use digital, unfortunately the old film cameras are becoming a thing of the past. If your son is a mad keen photographer then I would consider investing in his future and buy him a good quality digital SLR. I hope this is somewhat helpful.

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..

Go into a darkened bedroom, dive under the thickest covers you can muster, with the camera. Open the camera back. You can now remove the cassette and unwind the film from the take-up spool (press the rewind button to free it) and wherever it has got caught up. Using the spindle on the cassette, wind the film back into the cassette. Now you can get out from under the covers and breathe again! Examine the camera mechanism to see if there's anything obviously untoward. Take it back to the camera shop & get them to check it out for you. If necessary, buy a cheap roll of film, put it through the camera until it jams (you can repeat this several times with the same roll if necessary). Then you can open the back in daylight & see what's going wrong - or, again, take it to the shop for help. They may want to send it for repair like that: if so send it with a note that the film is trashed & they can just open the back in daylight.
