My film won't load

I have a Pentax ZX-60 camera. When I insert a new roll of film, I pull out enough film so that it should begin to load when I close the door. So I close the film door and I hear a noise but the film never advances to the ready position

I have a pentax zx-60 that is showing an error message o_ _ _ _ with an E on top of that. I'm not sure what it means or how to fix it. I tried reloading the film and it doesn't seem to advance.


I think the 'o____' is intended as a pictorial representation of a roll of 35mm film, the 'E' signifying an error in loading it. Not used this particular Pentax model myself, but some of them have a slot in the take-up spool where the 'tongue' of the film should be inserted - is that the case with yours ?

How do you re-load it?


Open the back with the side latch, pull the header of your film out of the roll, insert that into the slot on the roller spindle far enough for it to wrap once, close the back of the camera, and then power it up. It will start to wind to the first photo segment by itself. If it doesn;t the film was not inserted far enough into the spindle.

I recently shot three rolls of color film with my ZX-7 in auto pict mode and all the negatives turned out blank (underexposed). What happened?


lens cap ? ;-]

Did you have the asa film speed set correctly? Thats usually the cause unless your battery isn;t quite right.

Camera shoots all the film then rewinds.


Repair would be at least $139 from Blue Moon Camera. I would buy another MZ-50 (ZX-50 is the same) off eBay or you could buy a ZX-30 from Blue Moon Camera for $75 with 1 year warranty. They are professional.

I have no idea how to put my film in the "Pentax mz-m" camera? Someone help me. I'm new to this as I am just doing photography at school!


Pull up on the rewind knob ( left side ) to open the film door. put film cassette in chamber then lower rewind knob and pull enough film leader to the take up spool. attach film to spool. close the film door then advance the film to #1 on the counter.

Others here have suggested the problem lays with the plastic gear on the advancing motor beside the mirror.

This might cost $100 or so...?

Pentax zx-50 Shutter Problems?


I really think this is the classic zx - 50 shutter motor problem : small motor on the side of the mirror box is not cocking the shutter . This is very repairable but unfortunately it requires fair amount stripping down of the camera to get to the fault and so you will have to take it in for repairs.
