Question about Canon Elph LT APS Point and Shoot Camera

1 Answer

I may have loaded film roll that has already been taken?

How do I tell if the roll of film is new or used since I loaded it in the canon elph lt, it started winding. There are lines flashing with a camera outline below them and the number in the square is 1. Should I rewind the film?

Usually when you finish exposing a roll of film, you rewind it until you are sure it is all wound into the cassette. There is a change in the sound as the end of the roll leaves the camera. An exposed roll would have no film sticking out of the cassette. A new unexposed roll will have a bit of film sticking out of the cassette to pull across the ack to the take up roll.

The new roll of film winds into the right spool upon closing back cover // brand new batteries displays 1/2 and ERR appears on led panel


Is the ERR blinking, and is there an additional blinking E on the display? If so, the film is not loaded properly.
The film is supposed to advance all the way to the take-up spool upon loading. The camera then "rewinds" one frame at a time as you take pictures. This way the camera knows exactly how many shots are left on the roll. Also, if the back is accidentally opened, the shots already taken are already in the can and won't be ruined.
If you need a manual, you may download a copy here.
Try cleaning the battery contacts and see whether the battery reads full with no film in the camera.
If problems persists, feel free to reply to this post and give any additional details.

My canon elph is getting a magenta line on the right side of all the pictures. what can it be?


The film is being fogged by light leaking into the camera through a bad light seal. Due to the design of APS models the seals cannot be replaced. Either put opaque aluminium tape over the outside part which is leaking or retire the camera and replace it.

On loading a fresh film into the camera the motor winds through to the last frame ie does not stop at first frame


That's entirely correct. Your camera winds all of the film out upon loading and each shot then winds the film back into the canister. Your frame counter works in countdown mode telling you how many shots remain rather than how many you've taken.

Many other camera do the same thing. The beauty of it is twofold: if the camera back is accidentally opened, then the shots already taken are safely in the film canister (except for the last shot), also when the film has finished you wait less time for the short length remaining to be rewound rather than the entire roll.

Camera does not rewind after end of film it spins, but does not engage the film. Joe M.


it is likely that this model of camera spins the entire roll onto the take-up spool, and then slowly rewinds one frame at a time until the last picture is taken. Then it has already almost rewound,

This shows up when you load the film. The cameras digital counter counts up to the number of pictures available, and counts downward each picture taken.

I cannot find where the memory card or film goes in this camera.


Your camera takes APS film. It's an obsolete system these days but the film and processing are still fairly easy to get.

The film loads into a compartment on the bottom of the camera; you open the compartment by turning the latch on the right hand end of the camera (as viewed from behind). The battery fits into a small compartment on the lower left back of the camera.

Canon elph 2 film door wont open , tried to open with door release button but wont budge.


You need the camera powered up and all the film used to activate the release mechanism for the lock to release the film door, the Elph film door will not open until all the pictures have been taken. It uses A CR2 Lithium battery

The ELPH LT takes APS film, like the Kodak Advantix.

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.
