New film is being rewound and the viewfinder is blank

Everytime i load the film the camera rewinds it back into the canister, and the view finder is black. when i remove the lens, the mirror is stuck in the upright position, and won't come down.

i don't see anything in the manual to fix the issues.

The rewind switch is stuck. You will need to replace it or remove & clean it. replacing it is easier to do than tearing apart for they break so easily

How do you take out a roll of film when your done? its an olympus 2000


First you have to rewind the film (some cameras rewind themselves automatically, but I don't think this is one of them). You do this with a little crank that unfolds from the top of the knob on the left of the camera's top plate (left as you hold the camera for shooting pics). You need to release the film first by pressing a recessed button on the bottom plate of the camera. Once the film is rewound into the canister, you open the door by pulling upwards on the little crank until the whole of the back of the camera opens up.

I am puzzled as to how you loaded the film in the first place without knowing that last bit.

How do i open the back cover , and what is the rewind crank ?


You open the back by pulling upwards on the rewind crank. The rewind crank is on the top of the camera on the left (as you look through the viewfinder) in the center of the knob that sets the film speed. The crank is folded into the knob. DON'T open the back until you have rewound the film. You will have to press a button on the bottom of the camera to release the film before you can rewind.

It will be a lot easier if you can get an experienced person to show you the first time.

I have a 36 exposure film in the camera with 25 pictures taken and I want to remove the film without taking more photos. How do I rewind?


To rewind the film mid-roll, press the two film rewind buttons simultaneously for one second. The two buttons are marked with a red film symbol, and double as the Auto Exposure Bracketing button to the left of the viewfinder and the Aperture/Exposure Compensation button to the right of the control panel.

The film is completely rewound when a blinking "E" shows in the control panel.

My x 370 wont transfer pictures onto the film? The camera looks like it's in good condition. The roles come out blank!


Film cameras directly expose film to light to produce an image: they do not "transfer pictures onto the film", but your phrase is a big clue as it suggests you've only used digital cameras in the past and so may have made a very simple mistake with film loading.

If the film is blank as in transparent, then the film has not been exposed. If it's completely dark then it's been over exposed.

I suspect you mean that the film is unexposed as it's by far the most common fault: cameras like the X-370 have completely manual film loading; the film has to be manually engaged onto the take-up sprockets before closing the back of the camera. After that, correct loading is confirmed by watching to ensure that the rewind crank (top left knob as viewed from rear) rotates every time the film winding lever is used. Note that the frame counter will advance even if the film isn't correctly loaded. Once the film is used up, the winding lever won't operate and the film must be rewound back into the cassette before opening the back of the camera. To do this, you press the recessed button on the underside of the camera and use the rewind crank to rewind the film until you can feel no more resistance at all.

You'll find full instructions on the Norman Butkus website where he's provided a downloadable .pdf manual for your camera for free download.

Hopefully this has solved your problem; if so all I ask in return is for you to rate my answer. If it hasn't, then please add a comment and I'll try to offer other solutions to your problem.

Can't open vivitar 5388


Use the rewind knob to rewind the film. Once the film is rewound, lift the knob up and the back should open. Then you can remove the film cassette and insert a new cassette and load the film.

Need to take old film out of camera


Usually when the film is shot (you may get more frames than the indicated 24/36 or whatever on the film canister) it will automatically rewind. If not, there's a button in the bottom of the camera you have to press - or other switch-like thing with a symbol 'o__' for rewinding the film.
Beware not to open the back of the camera before you are surethe film is rewound.

Film wound on wrong side of camera


It sounds like you have a jam.  When you have finished taking shots and have used all the film, you must press the film-rewind button on the underside of the camera; this does not rewind the film, but allows you to commence the next step.  Once you have done this, flip up the rewind-crank on the top left hand side of the camera. It is situated on top of the film speed dial. turn this clockwise until all the film is back in its cartridge.  You should now be able to open the back of the camera.
I hope you have fun with your t50!

The film automatically loads then rewinds when a new film canister is added


Hm. Well, the way this camera works is actually very clever. When you first load a film into it, it winds the entire film out of the cassette and into the camer. As each shot is taken, the film is rewound back into the film cassette. The advantage of this is that if the back of the camera is accidentally opened, the shots which have already been taken are already safely back in the film cassette and will not be damaged by the light ingress. However, your camera is behaving strangely. I would check that the electrical contacts where the film cassette goes in are clean. You can clean them using a cotton bud moistened with methylated spirits.
