What does the E mean on screen and u can't take pictures. know one knows even change film and barreries

E means that the film hasn't been loaded properly. Is the instructional manual for the camera, if you read through it it should tell you how to properly load the film.

I thought I loaded the film in a Nikon F100. The Camera showed the film was moving 1-24 I got to 24 the film re-winded I took it to get developed and The film was clear I just need to know how the load...

Since you managed to close the back of the camera and shoot, you've placed the actual canister into the camera correctly.

What happened is there are a series of pegs on the left side of the camera, or sometimes just a red indication line, that the film must be placed onto. If you don't lay the film onto this, the camera won't pull the film out of the canister when you shoot, but it will rewind it back into the canister correctly when it thinks you are out of shots. This will result in a blank roll of film.

I have a 35mm nikon camera. I've changed the batteries but the film won't load. how can i load the film?

Here is what to look at: Custom Function number 8, "Auto film load when back is closed", default setting is 1 disabled on 0 it is enabled. If you have the manual for the F80 (same as N80) look on page 21 and page 72 and 73.If that is not the issue check the following: With the new batteries does the camera turn on, Can you focus, does the LCD light up? All that will let you know if you are getting power to the camera. If the answer is yes then the film should load so now check the inside of the camera back. Does it have the pressure are and roller next to the hinge. If that is missing then when you pull the film to the red dot, close the camera back there is nothing to put pressure on the film for it to load.

I do not know how to load or unload the 35 mm film.

The cartridge will only go in one way. install and pull film to marked line (should have a few notches in the film strip past gear) close camera and either wind until it stops or if batt powered it will load itself then ready to roll

How to put film in the camera

Hey buddy5000,
The process to load film into your camera is as follows
1. Turn the camera on and make sure the frame counter reads 0 if it doesn't there is probably film in the camera.
2. Press the film door release button and slide the release downward.
3. Place the new film cartridge in the film cartridge chamber and pull out the film leader until it reaches the red dot on the bottom right side of the film chamber. Make sure the holes on the lower edge of the film engage the teeth on the sprocket.
4. Now close the back door and the film should load automatically and# 1 should appear in the frame counter, and if it does not then the film is not loaded properly.

I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.

Film not loading properly

The lines could be scratches in the negatives.

Have you looked CLOSELY at your negatives with a magnifier to see if the scratches are on your film?

And when you say "Serviced", do you mean "cleaned" also?

If you have scratched film, then return it to the place you got it serviced/cleaned and let the owner/manager know that you just had it serviced there and it's scratching your negatives.

If you have an automatic camera, this bit below will be of no help.

Assuming that your camera is a manual loader, it may be that you aren't putting enough film into the take up spool for it to catch.

Try putting a little more film into the take up spool when you are loading the camera, and MAKE SURE that the holes in the film LINE UP with the film sprockets.

Then after you close the film door and start advancing your film, look at the film rewind knob, if it isn't turning while you are winding in film, then your film hasn't caught in the take up spool.

Another way to tell if your film is advancing is to shoot a test shot, and then advance the film, and then lightly turn the rewind knob a bit.

You should be able to feel the tension of the film if it is loaded correctly.
