Open Question

I bought a Lomography action sampler camera, chrome the one with four lenses. It worked great for the first 3 rolls of film with 36 exposures but now I can't seem to get the film to advance.

SOURCE: no shutter/film advance

with electronic cameras, it is the control circuitry. send it for service. your service agent probably will replace the complete pcb as they don't know or wouldn't care to diagnose which minor component went wrong.

SOURCE: FRame Counter does not move beyond the 26th Frame even in a 36 roll Film

Simple, the film counter unit has plastic gears underneath. the gear position or gear has worned out. simply replace the counter unit and adjust. This can be performed by any local repair shop for less than $100. -James. for further assistance email, go to www.camerarepairjapan.com

SOURCE: I just bought a second hand Contax RX but the film

The auto-rewind is triggered when the film advance mechanism detects tension on the film, indicating the end of the roll.

It could be a couple of things causing the problem...

1) The particular roll of film you were using was wound too tight, or has got some moisture in it causing it to stick.

2) If it has done this with various rolls of film, it is likely that the clutch mechanism that detects the film tension is out of adjustment. This is something that a professional camera repair shop will be about to fix for you.

I'm not familiar with this particular model of camera, but there may be a facility to turn off the auto-rewind as a short-term fix.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: how to rewind roll film in Lomo Action Sampler

To rewind the film on your camera you push down on the rewind handle on the top left of the camera (as viewed from behind) and turn the rewind handle clockwise until no more resistance is felt.

Once the film has been rewound, slide down the catch on the left edge of the camera body and open the door on the back of the camera.

Courtesy of alfredklomp.com you can download part one of the manual here and part two here.

If after all this, the camera is broken then it cannot usually be repaired: it's designed and built as cheaply as possible as a toy camera and is only designed to last for a few rolls of film. Spare parts are not available, but some broken parts can be adapted or fabricated from whatever is to hand to do the job.

Iana mini rewind crank not spinning when advancing film


If the film is advancing you do not have a problem. It may be that the rewind button does not actually spin when you advance the film, because if it did and you have something caught on it when you are trying to do so you could really mess things up. Really, the rewind crank may only visibly spin in one direction.

Have a Monolta zoom 160c. Haven't used in years. What size film does it take?


It uses the common 35mm film, also known as 135. In many stores (other than camera stores) it's the only size you'll see. It can use 12-exposure, 24-exposure, 36-exposure, or other size rolls. Avoid the bulk rolls unless you have a bulk loader. You can use black-and-white or color, print or slide.

I have a 36 exposure film in the camera with 25 pictures taken and I want to remove the film without taking more photos. How do I rewind?


To rewind the film mid-roll, press the two film rewind buttons simultaneously for one second. The two buttons are marked with a red film symbol, and double as the Auto Exposure Bracketing button to the left of the viewfinder and the Aperture/Exposure Compensation button to the right of the control panel.

The film is completely rewound when a blinking "E" shows in the control panel.

My action sampler doesnt work properly.. i have loaded the film and shoot correctly, i guess :d but the result is not in four panels, but just like an usual film cameras (in 1 panel only).. what's wrong?...


The problem is your lab, assuming you got prints, the lab printed them like normal, But look at your negatives, you will see the 4 panel images.

Best to print an Actionsampler photo from the internet or lomography website, just print a rough one on regular paper, 4x6inch, and take it to the lab to show them how the prints should be. They should re-print from your negatives for free because they made an error the first time. It may have been an automatic adjustment by the machine they use.

The shutter button does not appear to click down and the lense does not open so no picture is taken. Usually it makes a sound and you know the picture has taken. HELP MEEE????


I had a similar problem with another brand of this type of camera. I would click the shutter and hear it open but it would not go through the series of four lens exposures unless I manually turned the film advance wheel . I think it may be because the motor isn't strong enough to draw the film across and trigger the shots. cheap plastic, ya know. I never got the film developed but im interested to see if it got anything at all.

Film rolls back automaticaly


The camera shouldn't be doing this, assuming you're using 36 exposure (or 24 exposure) film. You may want to set a custom function to prevent automatic rewind -- you would have to rewind the film yourself by pressing the rewind button.

To do this:
1. Under the palm grip, press the 'CF' (custom function) button.
2. Use the main dial to select 'F1' in the LCD. It should show a '0' below the 'F1'.
3. Press the 'CF' button to change the '0' to a '1'.
4. Press the shutter button half way to save the change and exit the custom function setting mode.

If you want to stop the rewind with the film leader still exposed (film doesn't rewind entirely into the cannister), use the same steps but set custom function 'F2' to a value of '1'.
