    I have same problem with my Sony pd150 and ran a tape cleaner mini-DV device thru it and it fixed it the first two times (it says not to do this too often as it is a temporary fix only) so then It kept happening with colored squares and sound drop outs so I took it to the repair shop and they said to do a maintence and clean on the camera (which is what it needs since it's been used for about 5-6 years) that it would costs about 380 dollars. So I decided to hold off on this and check Youtube and find out how to take apart the camera and do it myself. But have not found a solution yet.

  Dear carooooo, You are dealing with tape not film. Your problem might be in your tape.   Try running your tape on record the full length. Keep your lens cap on. Color balance and use new tape that's for your Sony.         jameskeyboar.

How to solve E000007-0000 error in canon image runner 2420L

The problem is the fuser heating element is not getting the correct temp. Or the film has shifted to one side & the sensor is not seeing the white square on the film. Take out the fixing assy and check the film.
Also, on the fixing assy, the cleaning roller built up with toner can cause problems

Which film in nikon f3?

The Nikon F3 uses standard 35mm film, also known as 135. The type of film you use is up to you. You can use black&white film, color transparency (color slides), or color negative (color prints). Prints are generally cheaper than slides but slide films generally produce better results, and prints can be made from slides. You can also make black&white pictures from color films, though obviously you can't go the other way.
These films are available in a variety of speeds. Faster films let you shoot in lower light and/or with a faster shutter speed for stopping action, but slower films have finer grain. Different films also have different color properties. No film (or digital sensor, for that matter) reproduces every color exactly. You may need to experiment in order to see which film gives you the colors you like for the types of pictures you like to take.

My pictures have a purple tint to them

You're either using old/expired film, or taking photos during dusk. Color film is balanced for daylight photography. Using it under conditions other than that will result in varying color casts on the resulting images.

Fluorescent lighting: Greenish
Indoor bulbs: Reddish/orange
Outdoor at night/dusk: Blueish/purpla
Ourdoor at dawn: Pink/blue

Or, you may have just gotten bad print work done. Try a different lab.

My Kenmore 16379 dishwasher is not cleaning well at all. We've tried powders, tablets, and gels with no better results. Glasses are dirty, dishes have soap residue.


The scum, film and white residue problems have started since the reduction of phosphates in dishwasher detergents.

Here is a tip that will help you to solve the problem of films, residue, and scum in your dishwasher.

The printer display an error message E007, the printer model is CANON IR 2016i

The error E007, is a common error for digital copiers, B&W segment.It means that fixing film on fixing heater is worn out.To be exact: on left side of fixing film on heater is little white square.With help of this square, photo sensor knows the condition of fixing film.If this square is "eaten", the sensor does not recognize it and automatically reports error code E007.

Your next step should be to replace fixing film. For EU region, or 230V and 50Hz current, the part number is FM2-3353 FIXING FILM ASSY.

In case of mild worn fixing film, you can try to turn off and on the copier, and get few more copies.

If the copier has over than 500 000 copies, the best solution would be to replace the whole fixing unit.
For EU region, the part number is FM2-3352.

The condition of fixing film you can check with pocket mirror and flash light.
Open the left door, above the drum unit (long green roller) is fixing unit which have warning heat lable.Place the pocket mirror under left side of fixing unit, and you should be able to see the damadged fixing film.Also if the fixing is so badly eaten, on left door should be particles of light brown color.

But however, you should replace the fixing film.

there should be an option for auto cleaning the printer, if you can't find it, look in the manual
use just regular or construction paper, it will most likely take a lot of sheets of paper, so don't use the fancy expensive type

Getting true color on slide scans

Make sure you have the emulsion (image) side of the slide towards the scanner sensor. Some scanners have a special setting for film still in slide holders to correct for focus. You may need a photo edit program to help with color and density. I find no difference from 35mm to split 5x7s altho bigger is always better.
