Question about Canon EOS Rebel G 35mm SLR Camera

1 Answer

There is a problem with shutter curtain when I opened the camera back to put new film in. There are five pieces across. First (top), 2nd, and 5th pieces are in the right places but 3rd and 4th are crooking. Those two pieces need to be adjusted or to be straighted. I know I can not touch them with my fingers. What do I NEED to move those two pieces down to the right places. Those two pieces on the left side are behind second piece. Canon Rebel G EOS Thank you Janice

Hi Janice, you really should take your camera in to a repair shop. That work should be done by a pro because you might get it right...and you might get it wrong. If your wrong, then you may as well toss it out the window.
If it were mine, I would attempt to push them back into place with a q-tip.
You have to remember though...why did they come apart in the first place? Is your camera missing a screw, and when you got them back in place (if you get them back in place), would it just happen again?
That's why you should take it to a pro. They will be able to fix why it happened in the first place. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I have very small problem with shutter curtain

Whole curtain needs replacement.
Yes, you can put it back in place, but you'll have light leak.

I have a minolta x-300s film camera, the diaphragm control lever ( the lever at the bottom when the lense is removed that controls the mirror) is stuck to the left (meaning the mirror is up or away) when i...


Try this before spending money on anything:
Open the camera front and back: ie, take off the lens, open the back door.
With clean hands, put fingers in from both front and back.
VERY GENTLY slide the shutter curtain to the side, as it would do if the shutter release was working.

In my case, when I let go of the curtain, the whole situation resolved itself, the mirror went back up into position and the winder and release both started working again.

I have a hasselblad 503cx. when i hit the shutter button, the back part of the lens opens (where the film is) but the lens shutter is closed. when i let go, the lens opens and the back closes.


The proper order of exposure should be:

Curtain opens/Lense stops down (unless wide open)
Lense shutter closes
When releasing button, curtain closes
When winding, lense shutter opens

If this isn't what's happening, something is wrong. There is only a simple mechanical screw connection between body and lense, so it'd have to be an issue with the gears in the body.

I was loading film into my Nikon EM for the first time and it wouldn't work so I had to take it out, then I pressed the shutter and it closed and it didn't open back up so I played around with the shutter...


You can't touch the shutter curtain at all on any film camera and the cost of repairing that curtains far exceeds the cost/value of the camera. Sorry for the bad news but the only thing worth anything on the camera now is the lens.

I took it to get the film developed and not one of my pics turned out.. is there anything i can do to fix this problem..?


1) With no film in the camera, take out the lens.
2) Open the back cover and aim the camera towards light source ( not the Sun) and trip the shutter at the different shutter speeds while looking at the shutter curtains.
3) If you see the light, the shutter is running.
4) If the shutter is running, film might not be threaded properly to the film take up reel.

Film Advance Lever and Shutter Curtain


If the film advance lever is "flopping" back and forth, the problem is most likely a jammed advance mechanism inside. The shutter is cocked *mechanically* and released the same way--no battery power is needed. One old trick you could try to release things is to push the rewind button on the bottom of the camera.*sometimes* it will free up the mechanism enough to unjam.

Nikon 6006 shutter curtain


Shutter Curtain needs to be replaced.
There are 2 of them. Usually one goes out of position and brakes.

Unfully picture when its print


If the black line is also on the film, then most likely the problem is in the shutter curtains. I think one of tem is stuck. You can check it by putting the camera on to manual mode and setting the shutter speed to 5-30sec and pressing the shutterbutton while the back cover is open. That way you can see wheter one of the curtains stays in front of the film or not.

Picture nearly all black


Lets see if the shutter curtains are opening properly : set to B and open the film back of the camera. Now release shutter and see if the first s. curtain has opened nicely and swiftly. Then release the second s. curtain and again see if you get proper closing of the curtain. If the shutter curtains ( usually just one misbehaves ) is slow to close then the shutter unit needs looking at . ( btw no point pouring liquids like benzine etc. into the shutter curtain are ... will make things worse ).

AE-1 Didn't Take Pics


Possibly the film did not go through the camera. If it did, the problem may be the 2nd(or closing)curtain magnet on the bottom of the camera. When the magnet is working the closing curtain of the shutter is held back 1 to 1000 miliseconds-depending on the shutter speed selected by you. 1ms=1/1000 sec. 1000ms=1 sec. You can tell by 1. removing the lens 2.setting the shutter speed to the "B" setting 3. opening the film door and looking through the camera 4. releasing or firing the camera and keeping pressure on the release button. If the magnet is working, the shutter will stay open as long as the release button is kept pressed down. The closing curtain will close as soon as the release button is released. When the magnet fails, both curtains travel across the film plane together and no exposure is made. Sometimes there is corrosion on the magnet where the wires connect. Sometimes there is some foreign substance or object that interferes with the face of the metal unit that attaches to the magnet when the camera is wound. Sometimes the magnet just fails and needs to be replaced. If the magnet checks out OK the problem may be in the circuits that control the release of the magnet. If this is the problem, the camera needs to be looked at by a competent repair shop. Just so you know, new parts are getting hard to come by, but there are tons of used cameras around that parts can taken from. Hope this helps.
