The film stuck when I feed it


This is a common problem with these projectors. Usually happens after a film breaks or a bad splice goes through it. Pull the lens straight out and then remove the lens housing that holds the lens and the focus controller. The screws for the housing are behind the glued on cover that says frame and focus. Remove the 4 screws behind it, slowly lift the cover and watch for a loose leaf spring that sits behind the cover. It will fall out if the projector is standing up, so lay it on its back and it will just sit there so you know where to put it during assembly.

Hi , I have a Canon AE-1 camera and I'm haviving a problem with the film advance lever . It seems to be stuck . It will not advance. Have you ever come across this problem before? Thanks ,John.


Canon AE-1 35mm SLR is a manual focus camera EOS is Canon's designation of auto focus EOS stands for Electro-Optical System. The problem you are experiencing is caused by several little things that throws the camera, wind and cocking leaver out of synchronization or simply come to the end of the roll. There is a frame counter window just to the left of the shutter release behind the shutter speed dial. Also if you have just loaded film in the camera it may not be seated correctly check by releasing the rewind button, wind the film back but not all the way and open the camera to restart the film.

How do i know when my battery is dead. Every time my pictures are developed, they come out black. how do i use the exposure meter?


The K1000 is all mechanical, the battery only powers the light meter. So even if the battery is dead, then you should still be getting images even if very over or under-exposed.

If the images are totally black on the negatives, then your shutter is stuck open and massively over-exposing your images. If the images are black on the prints, then the negatives have been unexposed and will be totally clear. The latter problem means that the film has not been exposed at all and is either due to incorrect film loading, faulty film winding, or a shutter which fails to open.

To eliminate the possibility of a shutter fault, hold the camera up to the light with the camera back open and fire the shutter at each setting. You should see light as the shutter opens and from 1s to 1/30s should be able to see and hear the difference at each speed.

To check film loading and advancing correctly, load a film and wind film on (remember this camera needs the film leader to be manually engaged onto the take-up spool). Use the rewind crank (do not press the rewind button) to take up the loose film and take a few shots. You should see the rewind crank turn each time you advance the film if it is correctly loaded and advancing. If not, open the camera back and visually inspect the film. It should be securely engaged into the take up spool. With the back still open, advance the film and take a few shots: the take-up spool should be advancing and the sprocket wheel (just before the spool, it's the wheel which engages the holes at the edge of the film) should also be turning. If it isn't, then the film rewind mechanism is faulty and the camera is behaving as if the rewind button has been pressed. It's usually easy to remove the bottom of the camera to check that the button isn't sticking.

If all checks so far are OK then check the film pressure plate on the inside of the film door. It should be able to give a little when pressure is applied and holds the film firmly in contact with the advance sprocket, if not then one of the seating pins on the flat metal spring may have become dislodged and it's usually easy to reseat it. Clean the plate after touching it as it must be grease-free and spotless.

If you try all this and still have a problem then please add a follow up comment and I'll try to respond asap, but bear in mind that as I'm in the UK I may be in a different time zone to you.

If I've fixed your problem, then please take a moment to rate my answer.

I have an Canon AE-1 and the film advance lever will not advance the film, the lever goes half way. The shutter will not release. Thanks


The film is either at the end or stuck. The shutter will not release unless the film advance lever has gone all the way and back.
Make a note of the frame counter. Rewind the film and remove it from the camera (When you feel the film to come loose from the receiving spool, stop rewinding to prevent the end of the film to disappear inside the can. This way you can reload it if it was stuck in the middle.) If the film was completely exposed, take it to be developed.
With the empty camera, try to advance the lever and release the shutter. If this works, the problem was the film and not the camera. Everything is fine. If the problem persists, take it to be repaired.
If the film was stuck in the middle, load it again into the camera. With the lense cap on (preferably in a dark room or similar) 'shoot' as many 'empty' frames as you had on the counter plus two more. Finish the film and develop the pictures.
If the film stucks again at the same place, rewind it and develop normally. It was a bad film.
Hope this helped you to solve the problem.

My clutch in my rm 250 wont disengage i know the pressure plate is moving but it still wont disengage?


If you put synthetic oil or an oil with "Special" additives in the gearbox the cork on the fiber friction plates may be swollen. The swelling can cause the clutch to stay engaged, Only use standard 10w40 motor oil in the gearbox. You will need new fiber friction plates if that is what has happened. Normally the only other three things that would cause the problem are a worn shift arm, a bent push rod and a badly worn cable.

Film advance


halbert28,
a slipping take-up spool is not an easy solution to fix, there is a couple things that you can do that might help.
1- after the film is loaded and # 1 on the counter rotate the re-wind knob to make the film tight.
2- gently pull up on the pressure plate inside film door to increase pressure on the film. other than that,the film take up mech. must be repaired.

Out of focus


Hey Paul FB,
One reason this could be happening is if the film pressure plate is set incorrectly. If you are using 120 film you should of course have it set to 120, and if you’re using 220 film you should have it set to 220. If you have the pressure plate set correctly the plate might be broken, and I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. If your subject is in the middle of the frame and the edges of your images are either background or foreground you might just have the aperture set to a large aperture resulting in a shallow depth of field. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

Check the film pressure plate in the back door whether it has proper pressure and in proper position.

Whether the film lead is dragged up to the required length and its perforations are correct without any damage.

Pull slightly the film and rewind it by hand to check its spool rotating freely
Then it needs service
