Either the development house you took it to is not reliable, you're shooting out of date film, or in bad light.

Remember that film is designed only to look good in sunlight outside. They sell colored filters you can place on the front of your camera if you need to shoot inside without the colors looking off.

Im the one with the Maxxum 3xi iso problem ... Our teacher gave us film with 400iso but we have to change the iso to 100 to shoot the roll..


If you use DX-coded film between 25-5000, the camera sets the ISO automatically to match the film. If you use non-DX-coded film, the ISO is automatically set to 100 ISO.

Blinking 0 on my minolta maxxum 5 after I loaded the film. I cant take any pics.


It did not load your film. open the back, be sure you have the film pulled across the opening to the far side of the take-up spool, and close the back again. It should make noise as it winds the film, then number 1 should appear in the top window. If it does not make noise and advance film, you likely need the film advance motor replaced. Every time you close the back, it will try to advance film.
The motor itself can die and those plastic gears can break teeth. If repositioning the film does not work, your maxxum needs a trip to the repair shop.

Setting date on Canon elph Jr.


To set the date:
1. Press the Date button (rear left button on top of the camera)
2. Press the Select button (small round button up and to right of date button, may need pen point to press), display may show 97 1 1, with the 97 blinking.
3. Press the Set button (below the Select button) to change the value of the blinking character.
4. Press the Select button again to change to the next character. Use Set again to change. Repeat until date is set.
5. Press the Select button when all characters are set.

To set time, press the Date button again and the display should change to time (24 hour mode). Use the Select and Set buttons as above to set the correct time.

C, H, and P indicate the type of picture you want to take. C stands for Classic, and the picture will be in a standard aspect ratio. H is the wide angle setting, and the printed picture will be printed wide angle. P is panoramic, and the printed picture will be even wider angle than H. All this depends on the processor who develops your pictures for you. Ask if their equipment can read and process according to the instructions your camera will automatically put on each exposure on your film.

The three buttons on the left side are:
Top -- Flash setting. On (lightning bolt) or Off (lightning bolt with line through it).
Middle -- Film rewind button. Film should rewind automatically when fully exposed, but you can rewind before the film is fully exposed by using this button.
Bottom -- Self timer. Pressing this button puts a clock symbol on the display. When this is set, the shutter will delay 10 seconds after the shutter button is pressed. Press this button a second time to turn off the self timer.

It could be a problem of bad conductivity. Try cleaning contacts with spray oxide remover.

My minolta sightseen camera wont take pictures?


The blinking zero would indicate that the film has not loaded but the cartridge is in place. The camera won't do anything when this occurs. Try opening the film door and load the roll again
