Question about Canon EOS Rebel 2000 35mm SLR Camera

1 Answer

Camera not working

After putting a new film in my camera and then attempting to take a photo, nothing happened only the flash popped up. The batteries are new and it reads 24 photos but, when pressing the shutter button - nothing. Nothing can be seen in the viewfinder - just a dark space. What's gone wrong? It's just died.

Hi Jane,
When we press the shutter release the mirror flips up after the shutter opens and closes the mirror flips down. When it flips down we then see out the viewfinder.

At first blush is sounds as though the mirror flipped up but not back down. Remove the lens look inside the camera press the shutter release what happens?

Cordially,

SOURCE: Camera turns off

Open the file door and check to see if the shutter blades look uneven, like they might have been pushed out of track. Sometimes it's simple to re-track them - other times it'll have to go to a repair shop. Another cause is the film motor wears out and has to be replaced - a job for the repair shop.

Shutter release magnet faulty ( your camera is cocked but since you cannot release the shutter you cannot wind the film ). Remedy : open bottom cover by removing the two screws. You will see two small electro magnets one on the left hand side and the shutter release one on the right hand side ( it is the bigger one of the two ). The very thin wires from the magnet to the small circuit board on the right hand side may be broken : inspect and resolder 10 joints you see on the p.c. board. If no joy replace the s.r.magnet.

SOURCE: AE-1Problems... Advance lever, Shutter, and more.

This happened to me to both the Canon's I had. I found out it was a dead battery. Once I replaced those it worked fine. The battery is hidden under the hand grip which can be taken off using a coin in the screw slot.

Sincerely,
Karin

SOURCE: Takes a picture when film advance lever is moved

The magnets that control the shutter are the likely suspect. Dirt and debris can cause them not to hold properly. Hence, it fires the shutter when you advance the film. It is something you can repair yourself. I can describe the procedure if you are interested.

SOURCE: Canon AT-1 (Similar AE-1) Shutter Fires Upon Advancing Film Lever

No need to look at the schematics. It only will give you a little headache. Replace Shutter release magnet (MG#3). While winding stage the Mg#3 suppose to catch the lever and any dirt or particle may prevent it. Clean it and it shoud take care of the problem. Good Luck -James.

My polaroid camera won't eject the film. Are the cameras broken or is the battery dead?


When you take a picture of darkness, are you using flash or uprating the film ?
More seriously, as the film is thirteen years out of date, I seriously doubt if it is still viable. The chemicals within the film pack will have deteriorated over time, and it is my guess that they may well have leaked into the film pack's internal mechanism, thus preventing the photos being ejected. Try again with fresh film.

When I wind on the film and press the button nothing happens


Many 35mm cameras will not work without batteries. Also clean the battery cap in case your batteries leaked.

Sometimes, when we start the carmera and want to take a photo and press the button to take one, a small red light starts to shine. we didn't configure anything on the settings. this is really anoying


Sounds like a feature that comes on when using flash. The light comes on so in low light you can see and focus on what you are trying to photograph. Then we shutter button is depressed all the way the flash goes and picture is taken. Try turning off flash function.

I have a Polaroid OneStep and am not sure if my film battery is dead or my camera is broken. I haven't used the camera in about 6 months, and at that time it was mostly working fine. Sometimes nothing...


Polaroid has not manufactured film for 600 cameras in about 5 years now. The only current source is The Impossible Project, which gives 8 shots per pack, black and white images only, and they tend to fade rather quickly. You can find and order online by searching the name. The Polaroid versions available are no longer really usable because the batteries are drained, film has expired and chempaks have oxidized.

The battery packs in these are integrated into the film pack and not replaceable separately.

It's regarding an instant 636 camera, there's a new pack of films in there, shot 2 polaroids and now the camera doesn't work anymore. The light of the flash doesn't burn and when I try to click to make a...


Unless you got your film from The Impossible Project, then there's no such thing any more as new Polaroid film. There is a lot of overpriced and unused old stock though which is all so long out of date that the batteries (built into the film pack) are all now effectively dead. Often the photo chemicals are stale as well, although if the film has been kept refrigerated (and you only have the sellers word for that) the chemicals may be fine but the battery will still be dead as cold kills batteries.

You have no way to save the current film pack, but to continue to use your camera in future you can either modify it to accept an external 6v d.c power supply (battery pack or mains adapter) or buy film from The Impossible Project.

I hope that my reply has given you suitable options for the continued use of your camera. Please take a moment to rate my answer.

Turn on and nothing happens, I get film battery flashing and the frame counter box is showing


Check the manual or download one online.
If the battery symbol is flashing it means not enough power in batt to operate camera. Put in a new battery, being sure to insert it correctly. Get a spare battery too.

How old is the film in camera & when did you put in the film?

Polaroid's battery is built in with the film package.
If the package is old or been in the camera for a long time battery may be low or dead.

Try changing film out.

Good Luck! Hope this helped. Please rate.
MSG back if you need more help.
