Film doesn't "snap" into place in film compartment - Olympus is-1

Film would "snap" into place when inserting a new roll, one day it stopped snapping and film is not secure in the film compartment. Can this be fixed? A piece of cardboard of something similar can be wedged between the film and the housing to hold the film in place, but I'd rather fix it if that's possible.

You have a broken spring in the film holding end. I would get it repaired so the roll of film doesn't pop out of place and ruin the whole roll or damage the shutter.

I have a flashing E when I open the shutter & switch on my Olympus Newpic XB AF I have A new film & new Battery bothin date what have I done wrong ?


Solution: Reset by removing and reinstalling film. Take the battery out and re-insert.
Cause: Possibly the transport system is not compoleted previously or film door may not be reset. Once it resets it should work.
Cost: Better to purchase another than repair. $40 new

I need the size of film and what kind of film my olympus om-1 takes can you help ?


The OM-1 uses standard 35mm film. You can use black-and-white, color print, or color slide film. Color print film should be available at most drugstores. A good camera store will have all types of film.

I have made a mistake when loading film into my holga 135bc. According to the manual book, after I had insert the tip of the film tongue into the slot on the take-up stool, I had to snap the back cover...


If you're saying that you have accidentally wound the film leader of an unused film back into the canister, then you need a film leader retriever (also known as a leader picker).

The tool costs typically around £6 plus shipping, so it's usually cheaper just to buy another film, but if you ask nicely at a camera shop (not many of those left!) then if they have one they might help you for free. Especially if you're buying stuff like films/processing from them.

I don't know how to roll up the film after it's done. I ruined the last one. How do I roll up the film?


There is a crank located on the top of the camera. Some Lomo's Ive seen have it located on the left, but it will always be on the side of the camera where you placed the film. Many cameras will also have arrows indicating what direction to turn it in order to wind the film back in. If there are no arrows, place your ruined roll of film (or a new roll of film) into the camera, and try winding it with the back open (if you're using a new roll of film, don't roll it all the way in, or you'll waste another roll).
If there is no crank, or it is broken, you can always unload your camera in perfect darkness (no red lights), and wind it back into the canister by hand.

I put the film in my camera backwards(with the tail of the film facing to the left) and i cant get it back out. when i tried pulling up on the rewinder thing part of it snapped off


If it was just the folding lever part of the rewinder which has broken off then you'll need to use a flat bladed screwdriver or the tip of a knife to lever up the rewind knob sufficiently to pull it up and open the camera.

If you've broken any more than that, then your camera is unrepairable. Spare parts are not available for your camera as it's only designed to last for six rolls of film. Even regular Lomo and Holga models are only intended to last for a maximum of twelve films.

I put new roll of film in the camera and it was sucked back into the film cannister and now can't unroll film to start


Well it is not a big problem. Visit a photo studio and tell then to for leaf out of the roll and load it in your camera. You can't take out that starting point of the roll at home. Because you don't have the small machine. After that put the roll back in your camera.
Now i am going to say most important things.
click few (4-5) snaps using a cover in front of your lens. Then click normally for taking photos.
Thanks.

How do you know if there is film in the camera and if so how do you know how many pictures are left to be taken .


I haven't heard of this camera, but most film cameras have a display somewhere that will show you how many have been taken. They don't usually show how many are left because film rolls can have anywhere from 12-36 pictures on them. If you are unsure about how many the roll of film had, you should assume it was a 24 exposure roll. 24 is the most common. If it doesn't have a number anywhere that you can see, you should take pictures until it stops winding.

If the film has been in the camera for a long time, it's probably better to just unload it and have it developed anyway. Film goes stale after a year or so for most films, so you may not have any good pictures on it anyway.

Hope this helps, if not make a comment with more information and I'll see if I can find a manual online for your camera. I'll need model number and as much more info as you can give.

Thanks

How do you put the film in in a olympus superzoom 105g


Open the back, gently blow out any dust that might have gotten in there. Load film in the shade. Take the film cassette out of the plastic container and insert it with the protruding piece on the bottom into the left side of the film compartment. Gently pull the film out to the right about 3-4 inches. Try to keep the film flat across the shutter opening but Be Careful you don't touch the Shutter Blades! Feed the film under the take-up spindle and through the vertical slot and hook the film into a sprocket. Push down the shutter release button and advance the film a couple times. Close the camera back securely. You are ready to go! Good luck
