Help! I pressed down on the film rewind button (the one on the bottom of the camera) & it got jammed in, & it won't pop back up! What should I do? My photography took one look at it, & just went, "Dunno."
I've never used a manual camera, & I'm already regretting this purchase. :(

Re: Film Rewind Button Problem!
turn the advance lever to charge the shutter.or open the film door and rotate the drive sprocket to the right, this will release the button. if the button didn't pop up then the bottom cover will have to be removed in order to release it manually.

Lift up the rewind crank. Press the film rewind button on the bottom of the camera and turn the crank clockwise. Rewind until the tension on the crank lessens, indicating that the film leader has been released from the take-up spool. Pull up on the film rewind crank and the back will open.
The camera should rewind the film when it reaches the end of the roll. If it doesn't, or to force a rewind in the middle of a roll, press the mid-roll rewind button with a pointed object. The button is on the bottom of the camera, toward the left end (away from the handgrip), and marked with a roll of film.
push in the rewind button on the bottom of the camera. turn the rewind knob to the right until all the film is rewound into the film canister.
pull up on the rewind knob to open the back ( film ) door, remove canister. put new film into camera push rewind knob down and pull enough film to attach to the take up spool.
On the bottom you have the Film rewind button. On the top you have the film rewind knob with crank . Here are the instructions on how to rewind the film. You can tell you have reached the end of the film by the frame counter and the film advance lever. Either the film advance lever will not turn at all or it will not turn all the way. First press in the rewind button, you may immediately let go of it, its on the bottom as shown before. Then turn the rewind crank clock wise until the frame counter, which counts backwards as you rewind, reaches "S" then open the back cover, remove the film, place it back in its canister and have it developed as soon as possible.
On the N80 - there are custom functions you can set in terms of when a film rewinds. Normally it is default to rewinding automatically at the end of a film. If this setting has been changed, or you want to rewind a film before the end - you need to press two buttons and hold them, at the same time.
The first button is the LCD backlight button next to the LCD, and the second is the flash sync button on the rear of the camera. Both should have a little red film symbol on them. Press them both and hold them, and the film should begin to rewind.
The camera shouldn't be doing this, assuming you're using 36 exposure (or 24 exposure) film. You may want to set a custom function to prevent automatic rewind -- you would have to rewind the film yourself by pressing the rewind button.
To do this:
1. Under the palm grip, press the 'CF' (custom function) button.
2. Use the main dial to select 'F1' in the LCD. It should show a '0' below the 'F1'.
3. Press the 'CF' button to change the '0' to a '1'.
4. Press the shutter button half way to save the change and exit the custom function setting mode.
If you want to stop the rewind with the film leader still exposed (film doesn't rewind entirely into the cannister), use the same steps but set custom function 'F2' to a value of '1'.
It sounds like you have a jam.
When you have finished taking shots and have used all the film, you must press the film-rewind button on the underside of the camera; this does not rewind the film, but allows you to commence the next step.
Once you have done this, flip up the rewind-crank on the top left hand side of the camera. It is situated on top of the film speed dial. turn this clockwise until all the film is back in its cartridge.
You should now be able to open the back of the camera.
I hope you have fun with your t50!
Check the manual rewind button on the bottom plate of the camera. Make sure the button is not jammed under the edge of the button opening. If it is you might be able to carefully pry it out with a sharp pin or tooth pick (be careful not to pierce the button or you could damage the circuit board underneath) Or you could remove the bottom plate and reseat the button (be careful of a loose spring to the film door latch)
be sure batteries are good. pull up on the rewind knob to open film door. load film ,push down rewind knob. pull enough film to connect to take-up spool. close film door. advance film to counter # 1. look through finder and set meter ( push shutter button to turn on meter ) focus subject and fire shutter repeat to end of film. push rewind button ( bottom of camera ) rewind film.
remove lens by pushing button and turn lens left to remove.
Most manual cameras have a button to release the film on the bottom of the camera, push the button in and turn the rewind crank (left side of the top of the camera) until you feel the crank suddenly turning much easier.
