How do I retrieved the event recently filmed?

Been using this camera for 5 yrs. First time I incurred this problem. I filmed an important event. Viewed it & was there. I charged the camcorder. When I checked on the video, it says: Ther is no image Database file. Movies cannot be recorded or played. Create a new file? Est. process time: 7s. With selection of yes or no. I clicked yes and filmed again. Check the film... it was there. I did the same thing and again it showed: There is no Image.... This time I did not click any of the selection of yes or no. What went wrong? Please help.

How do I make individual events recorded on the cx230 play as a single event?

Use a video editing program on your computer. You can stitch the clips together in any order, add fades and transitions, add a soundtrack, etc.

Retrieval of pictures taken without a memory card

When you take pictures on anyy digital camera, the picture is stored onto the memory card. In your case, since the memory card was full, the picture was deleted the second you stopped looking at it. (from when you took it) I would try uplinking the camera to a computer to see it the pictures somehow made it to the camera, but other than that im sorry.

Is there a way to retrieve photos taken on a canon eos rebel t3 when no memory card was inserted?

I'm afraid you're out of luck. The camera does not have any memory to store photos. You can take one photo and look at it on the screen to see how the camera works, but this is primarily for demonstration purposes. Shooting without a memory card is like shooting an old film camera without any film loaded. You can go through the motions of taking a picture, but nothing is stored permanently.

I recently bought a Nikon EM camera. The first time I used it worked well but The second time when I took the film to be developed, no photos came out. Now I'm noticing that the film door is not closing...

Without seeing this, I can't really tell it might be that the rear door is slightly bent OR the light seal(s) are preventing the door from closing properly.

When you close the back on the camera it should close without force or pressure to latch, should be a nice crisp click. If once you have the back closed and you cn pinch down on the bck and it moves inward towards the camera then the seals are worn out and need replacing. This isn't a huge job it's one of the more common things with a film camera. I'd say probably a $60.00 fix depending on where you are and most camera repair shops do this.

There could also be several other things that caused the camera to not expose one being the battery could be exhausted (dead) and requires a new one (cheap and available) another is the aperture blades in the lens could be stuck open.

Have a service person check it out before loading more film

I cant open it and get the film out this camera hasnt been used for over 5 yrs

The rubber gasket around the door seal is probably degraded. Pull up on the rewind knob and grasp the cover end under the knob pulling it away from the body. clean the edge of the cover alcohol.

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

Ya all you really need is a "film retriever." We use the Arista Deluxe one in class and it is extremely user friendly (this one,, however you can probably find it cheaper on ebay or craig's list, but ya that's all you need to pull it out, however, be careful when using it because if you wind it up too tight then you may just have to develop the roll, but um ya that's my solution.
