Re: Film

I am guessing that the film is supposed to wind itself on when you close the camera? If you open the camera you may see that the film "leader" has not been drawn into the camera. When you load the film pull a small amount of the film (1 or 2 inches) out from the canister and place it into the (usually) right hand side of the camera where you will see the gears waiting to engage in the sprockets to pull the film in. The film should also lay flat across the rear of the camera where there are gears top and bottom that should engage with the film.Also check you have fresh batteries.

Film advance lever stuck. Changed batteries but can not move the film advance lever.

Hi fmerlin, If you have film in it you may need to remove the film to free up the advance lever. Go into a closet cover under a blanket etc. Also, Walmart and most drug stores have a big change bag that they could do it for you. With film out it still will not advance it will need to go to Nikon.

When I push the button to take a photo, the camera

Sounds like a broken gear or linking arm. It will cost as much to fix as to replace. You now have a very nice Minolta paperweight, lol.
Those neat little film cameras are now a thing of the Ebay, LOL. Since many are dumping them for digital, they're quite available at good prices now.

If the battery is low in my Minolta freedom zoom camera, will the film be pulled back into the roll?

No. If the camera pulled the film back into the roll with a low battery, you wouldn't be able to take any pictures, rendering the film, useless. Don't worry about it, and if it REALLY bugs you, keep fresh batteries in it.

My super sampler wont click after i take my firs shot??

Pull the string to advance the film. As long as your film sprocket holes are lined up with the sprockets in the camera, your shutters will fire the next time you press the shutter button.

Panoramic pictures??

A panoramic photo on 35mm film is just cutting off the top and bottom. even if you can't set the camera that way, you can ask your local photo store to print any shot that way for you. Usually 2x the price of 4x6.
