SOURCE: The neck ******** my fujifilm

The film had a leader, which is meant to be sticking through the top of the camera. The only thing I can figure you can do is to take the film out of the camera, in dim lighting or a dark room, if you have one, and reinsert and guide the film pack in correctly.
There's no guarantees that the film will be good anytime a camera has been opened, but it might, so it's worth a try. What have you got to lose...
Good luck, hope this works for you, and thanks for using FixYa.

How do you load it


To open back cover lift knob on top of camera ( this knob has a small arm that unfolds - used in rewinding).
Once open you will see which side is the film side ( under this knob) and the take up side. On the film side raise the knob again in order to insert film case, the top of this should flip over later used to rewind film. with film trail out toward back of camera. Now push the knob down. Film should only be loaded one way so the knob can be lowered into film canister. Lower knob and Film canister is now secure.
Next thread film leader onto take up spool. Some times these have a slot , but most Just have the teeth that fit the film edge.thread the film into slot then unto teeth. You will need to use film advance arm (There should be an arm on the top opposite side of film knob) you would move that would advance film.
as you move this arm ( with cover open ) film holes should engage the teeth on bottom and top. ( if you can't advance after 1 or 2 advance arm swings) press take picture button ( releases springs).
continue until film is captured top and bottom. Use the film spool knob gently wind film back into canniester until snug don't over wind. Close cover, take a picture with lens cap on, repeat that. As you wind ,the film cartridge knob should rotate.
You are not wasting pictures film was designed for this waste.
you should know how many photos were on film 12/24/36 pictures.
you may have a knob to set to that number.
When your ready to remove film ,push silver button on bottom and use winder handle ,rotating until free and easy. Open cover mention earlier.
wow can't believe I remembered all that and hope that helps.

When you put the film in the meter thats shows you how many exposures you have left stays on the s instead of going to one. The film is being pulled properly and is acting normal but even the sound doesnt...


Hi,

I would definitely be concerned that the film is not advancing. I have a Minolta that has the same problem. I missed many a picture because I didn't pay attention to the meter showing the film advancing. I would just make sure the film is advancing by taking a couple shots with the back open before closing it.

If you are positive the film is advancing, it really doesn't matter what the meter says as long as the film is stopping after each exposure.

Finally, if the film is advancing , but the meter is not, and you want it to, you will need to see an experienced repairman to correct it.

Good luck.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Film roll stuck in my camera canon eos lx


The Canon EOS is a digital line of cameras from what I can tell. If that is the case, then there is no film in the camera.

However, assuming that you actually have a 35mm camera with film stuck in it, the following should work for. You don't indicate what you mean by stuck, but the standard solution for removing 35mm film from a camera is to take the camera into a dark room, open the back of the camera and remove the film and canister, being careful to not tear the film. While still in the dark room, place the film into a light proof bag to avoid spoiling it when it goes into the light. You can then contact a local photo processor about their ability to process the loose film. Make sure that the bag is clearly marked to avoid having someone open it by accident, spoiling the film in the light. If you can't find someone locally who can process the film, Kodak can do it for you in Rochester, New York. Contact them for instructions on shipping the film.

If you don't care about the film or pictures it may contain, feel free to simply open the camera and remove the cansiter and film, discard it, and start over.

How to unload nikon fg 35 mm film


When the last exposure is made, the film advance lever will not move the film to allow another picture to be taken. Turn the camera upside-down; with the lens facing you. Locate a small button in a slight recess in the right-hand side of the bottom of the camera. Press the button in to release the sprocket drive mechanism from the film. Turn the camera right-side up again, and unfold or open the film crank knob from the top most part of left-hand side knob (the one with the ASA settings on it). Return or rewind the film back into the canister by gently turning the crank clockwise until you feel the resistance ease up completely. This indicates the film has been completely rewound and is now protected from light when the back of the camera is opened, next. To open the camera back, pull the crank knob gently up and away from the top of the camera. The back door will open and when the knob is fully extended, *** will be possible to remove the film canister from the camera body. You should do this in subdued light if possible - and return the film canister into the original protective container if available - otherwise, place in a light tight box, bag, etc.

I hope this helps - and good luck!

My film in Canon ae 1 came out blank :S


I would say either the film didn't wind properly as it was going along,or the shutter isn't working properly.Did it make the whirring noise like it was winding after you took a picture?If you can,try taking a picture with the door open,no film,and see if the shutter moves.If it does open,it's probably the winder which pulls the film after a picture is taken.Good luck!

Film has not rewound but has 'reverted' to showing


On the toplate of the camera, to the left hand side, is a button which slides to the left. It is marked with a film cassette outline, and two arrows to the left <| <|

At any time, you can use this button to rewind the film back into the cannister. It should make a whirring noise for 5-10 seconds, and will stop automatically.

If it makes no noise, you may have a flat battery, or the film may already be rewound.

You can insert new power (battery) without affecting the film cassette, if need be.

However, if really unsure, then:
1) Slide the rewind button to rewind(i.e. to the left).
2) Familiarise yourself with where the back opening latch is.
3) Go into a pitch black room. Preferably under a quilt in a pitch black room.
4) Open the back and take out the cassette. If it comes freely, its probably fully rewound. If its still attached to the take-up spool by film, then (holding the film by the edge only) pull on the film to release it slowly from the take up spool. Whilst it can be quite a tug, they are designed to let go of it "under protest". (Do not pull it so hard that you strip the gears, but fairly firmly).
5) Using the spool winder on the top of the cassette, wind the trailing film back into the cannister. If you've never seen a 35mm cassette, then in the dark one end has an elevated round part, the other end has a void into the cassette. You can tell the elevated part, and start winding - it should only wind one way and feel like its winding onto the reel (wind the other way and it feels like its unwinding - even in the dark!)
6) Only when you are sure film is in the cannister, can you turn on the light.

Films are very sensitive to light, so if you do not feel comfortable doing this procedure in total darkness, go to a photo processing store who will do this for you, usually for no charge (other than the hope you'll let them process the film). They put your camera in a sort of black pillowslip, but the procedure is the same.

Hope this helps

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.

How so I inaert film


I'm not familiar with your exact model so what follows is generic to many film SLR cameras and assumes that the camera is already empty:-

Open the back of the camera by pulling upwards the rewind crank on the top left hand end of the camera (as viewed from behind). The back of the camera should pop open a little, open it all the way.

Before fitting the film, check if the film can is DX coded. It will have DX printed on it somewhere if it is, but will also have a large area bare metal squares interspaced with printed black squares or rectangles. if the film is not DX coded then look for an ISO number, ASA number or DIN number and note it somewhere.

Drop the roll of film into the space at the left of the camera, and push the rewind crank back down to secure the film canister. Pull out the film leader across to the right hand end of the camera. Often there are printed instructions or diagrams showing what to do. Your camera probably has an easy loading system in which you pull the film leader until it's level with a printed line and then close the camera back until it clicks.

Turn the camera on, normally it will staert whirring as it autoloads the fil onto the take up spool. If successful the number one will appear in the film counter display within a few seconds. If not then open the camera back and try again.

What you do next depends on whether the film is DX coded or not. There will either be a dial or a menu item which allows you to set the film speed, for DX coded films set the control to DX or to AUTO. If the film is a rare non DX-coded one then you need to set the speed manually. Select the correct ISO number in the menu. If your film had an ASA number then use it as an ISO number and if it had a DIN number then look up DIN to ISO conversion online.

If this has solved your problem then please return the favour by rating my answer, thanks.
