HP3330....machine is adding a wide black streak about 3 inches wide down the center of printed pages. Is this something I can fix ?

Check the fuser for the problem, look at rear of printer and open access door to fuser, look at gray plastic film if film broken replace fuser, if film has black mark replace fuser. Note replacing fuser NOT considered a user replaceable item.

Broken latch on film door

Usually on this level Nikon it was a plastic "hook", part of the door moulding, that was retained by the latch mechanism in the body. The broken part may still be in there - if it is trip the latch and recover it with a tiny screwdriver or even a needle. If you can't find a replacement back door you can try welding the hook back in place with a low-temperature soldering iron - with the tip perfectly clean and a very steady hand - as long as the door is thermoplastic and not thermosetting. If that doesn't work bend a paperclip or similar to exactly the right shape with the free ends (roughened) long enough to extend into the plastic of the door by 4-5mm., heat the wire and push slowly into the edge of the door. There are many variations of this technique that I've used, all require extremely careful work! Best tip: spend more time thinking than doing. Good luck.

Someone recently gave me an old Pentax with new film. After 15 pictures, when I try to **** it, there is no resistance and the film does not advance. ?

It can be 3 things: 1.- Film sprockets are broken. 2.- Film sproket's carriers in the camera is broken. 3.- Film sproket carrier's mechanics ate broken. Unloadeit in complete dark and you can touch if film is broken, that would be the best case scenario.

Canon Z85 film door clasp is broken

I would spring for the clip. Mine broke in the same manner but no one told me it could be fixed, so I got a different camera. I have NEVER had a camera that took such great photos as my Z85, and wish I had hung onto it.
