Rewind crank is loose on my Minolta XG 1 Film SLR


There is a spring in the bottom of the rewind knob that holds the crank, and it sounds like it has dislodged or the plastic rewind knob is cracked (try small amount of super glue for this). You can rewind the knob off the shaft (open the film door and put something in the rewind fork to keep the shaft from moving) and then turn the rewind knob opposite the direction of the arrow (if the arrow says turn clockwise, then turn counter clockwise). This will allow you to remove the rewind knob assembly and check it for damage, etc. Also, there is a small shaft at the end of the crank. Make sure it is not bent.

I can't open the camera back on my Nikon FM3A 35mm SLR Camera. Is it because of the poor battery level?


Hi,
The battery does not affect the back cover opening.
The back can be opened by lifting up on the film rewind knob but on this model, there is a lock. Lift the rewind knob and at the base of the rewind knob is lifted from, there is a safety lock. You have to move this safety lock and lift the film rewind knob at the same time to open back.

Rewind button is stuck


It can definitely be fixed but let's try one thing before forking over few bucks to technician. Assuming it is a SLR camera, When you rewind, hold the rewind knob pushed in and try it. If you have a point and shoot, let me know which model. I'll be ready to assist when you respond either way.-James

Rewind on my camera wont turn


Has the rewind knob become unscrewed or just won't turn? It does have to be turned clock-wise to rewind the film. If you would happen to turn it counter-clockwise, it would either jam or the knob itself would become undone from the rewind shaft.
