SOURCE: cant figure out where the shutter release cable hooks up oncamera

Sorry my friend, but the HTsi model lacks facility for a cable release. Use the self timer on a tripod instead to eliminate camera shake

The camera will not take the picture

Need more info. What is the camera not doing? Does the auto focus work? Are the batteries good. Are the shutter blades in place? Sometimes when loading film a person will push down to smooth film and the force will go through the film and pop the shutter blades out of position. Remove the lens and gently lift the mirror with your finger nail. The blades should lie flat.

Nikon N70 back of camera and area covering that opens up to expose film, the individual "strips"covering that opening were inadvertantly pushed in and need to be reset into opening...How?

They can't. You've destroyed the shutter assembly and it must be replaced which is a professional job. You cannot simply push the shutter blades back into place and expect them to work correctly; they're a precision assembly manufactured to very fine tolerances.

N70's are now near-worthless, so repairs make no economic sense at all. Just look on FreeCycle/Freegle and get a replacement for free: it's where I get most of my Canon and Nikon 35mm SLR's and also where I get occasional Mamiya or Bronica medium format models.

Can't fully see thru the lens

Look in the back where the film goes in. Are all the shutter blades flat and in place, or are they wrinkled or is one or two blades bent or out of place preventing the shutter from functioning fully? Put the camera in M focus and M exposure at about 15th, Fire the camera several times. If the shutter looks and works ok then take the lens off and look at the mirror. Fire the camera a few times. Doe the mirror go all the way up to the top and come back down, all the way? If so then the shutter would appear to work fine and the lens may e the problem. If the shutter or mirror box do not work correctly they will have to be repaired by a qualified technician.

Film won't advance

Pentax ME Super was one of my favorite camera, small and clean shutter release. But it has been about 25 years since it was manufactured. They happen to use rubber break within shutter unit and as any rubbers, it started to deteriorate and melt between the shutter-blades. This prevents the complete cycle of the shutter and jams the winding. You may be able to unjam the winding but eventually you have to overhaul the shutter unit. Overhaul charge is around $100 in US repair market. -James

Nikon FM10 shutter wont deploy with lens on.

Check the lens. Does the diaphragm move freely when you move the f/stops? Put the lens on f/8 or f/16 and push the pin in, it should move freely and close to the f/stop you set. If not the blades may have oil on them. Also if it is free then set the lens to the smallest aperture and if there is a button push it in to lock for auto aperture set.

Shutter blades out on Minolta Maxxum 7000

It is possible to fit them back since they are flexible. It does require a gentle touch, with a lot of patience. I use angled tweezers for this task.

Replacement parts are no longer available. Used cameras can be found on ebay and the like.

Need replacement Shutter for EOS ELANIIE

You can order the shutter assembly from Canon or just the 2 blade assemblies if that is the only problem.

The part number for the entire shutter is CG1-3155-000 and the individual blade assemblies are CF1-2763-000 and CF1-2764-000.

Canon's parts phone number is 1-732-521-7230

Please note that the Elan IIe is a very complicated camera, beyond the capabilities of most do-it-yourselfers. However, you may still want to give it a try!

Bad picture developing

Since this happened on two seperate rolls of film, the problem may be that the shutter blades have been bent out of place.  This can cause the symptoms you describe.  Have a qualified technician look at the shutter.  Usually the blades can be reset.  In bad cases the blades may be bent or creased. If this is the case, the shutter may need to be replaced.
