    My camera is a Kodak Advantix C700. Also, I can't see the print on the screen that shows how much film is left and that provides other info regarding using the camera. It seems to have faded away. Is there a way to recapture this?

  • hd_thompson Aug 03, 2009

    I bought new batteries prior to posting my comment. Same result. I bought new film too; however, I haven't been able to put it in the camera yet. Will try using all the film in the camera currently. Although, I can't tell how much is left.

    I have used all of the previous film that was in my Advantix C700 camera and replaced it with a new roll. The display area info is still not visible. Any other advice???

    Yes, this camera has an LCD area and you can see partial images of something but not enough to distinguish what the words are.

    Thank you for confirming the model for me.



    The film compartment will only open if the film is completely rewound. Please ensure the film is completely rewound by using the rewind feature or the sliding mechanism will stop half-way and not open the compartment.



    As for the faded display, please ensure the batteries are not becoming flat. Try replacing them with new cells.



    Low batteries can also stop the film from rewinding fully and cause the original problem.



    Hope this helps!



    With regards

    Thank you for your reply.



    I am glad to hear the film area was now able to open after depleting the remaining photos.

    Does this camera have an LCD screen? If so, does nothing appear at all on the display?

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.

Problem Description: no attempt to put paper thru printer, if it feeds it jams. Panasonic UB-5315


Hi, usually it is only a matter of removing the paper and turning it around prior to printing- but only at the start of each session. There may be a small piece of paper jammed in the paper throat area. You may be able to just see it if you open the paper draw or the plastic film area. You can access the latter area by sliding the tag downwards on the RHS of the printer. The piece of paper will be right at the bottom. Occasionally there is a full piece rolled up in the shoot that you can see above the film. You may have to remove the film rolls to access this. Make sure you look at which roll goes where before you remove them.- Ross

My Pentax IQZoom 115v overexposes every shot for that lovely "washed out" look we all hate. I only use Kodak slide film ASA 100. I've used IQZoom 900 cameras for decades with excellent results....


First, here's a link to a free download of your camera's manual in case you've lost yours.

On page 16 of the manual, it states that in addition to using DX film of ISO 100 to ISO 400:

1) Color negative film is recommended.
2) Non-DX film cannot be used - but then says if it is used, set the film to ISO 100.
3) ISO 400 film is recommended.

Page 25 and forward detail exposure Modes. This should be your next area of interest in the manual. If you are unable to to solve the problem at this point, there may be an issue with the aperture of the lens being stuck open - or the shutter remaining open for too long. Either way, it will probably need to be serviced professionally to get it working again. You might consider replacing this camera as repair costs may exceed the value of the camera.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply - thank you.

Laptop Buttons clean


Hi there,

Turn you laptop upside down, you’ll find a few screws with a symbol that looks like a keyboard.
Unscrew these screws(and ONLY these).
Turn it again, open, and find about 4 "slides" in between the F-buttons. Slide them toward the front and lift the keyboard up from the F- buttons. Be careful not to break the thin film. The film can be lifted from the seal, again with care.
Unscrew all the screws keeping the keyboard together.
Then clean, and know why you shouldn’t drink and drive at the same time - sorry that’s in a all together different area :-)

Regards
Teis -> don’t forget to vote, - thank you.

Lomo supersampler.... how do i get the film out?


on the camera you have a round loop on one side and a rectangle loop on the other side. next to the rectangle there is a narrow black slide button. press that button then open the camera. on the bottom where the film on the outside of the case is a black button that hold the film in place. slide that outward then remove the film.

Unable to use film adaptor


Please do the following to scan slides or negatives in manual mode of the Epson TWAIN:
1) In the program you are working from, begin the scanning process. If working in full auto mode, as the scan begins you will see a message that reads TO CANCEL SCANNING IN FULL AUTO MODE AND SWITCH TO MANUAL MODE, CLICK CANCEL. At this point, click CANCEL, then MANUAL MODE.
2) You will now see all Epson Twain settings displayed. If the scanner has not previewed automatically, click the full page preview button (icon of a paper with one corner folded down).
3) Ensure the settings on the right hand side of the Twain are correct. For example, the DOCUMENT SOURCE for transparencies must be either TPU: COLOR NEGATIVE FILM, TPU: MONOCHROME NEG or TPU: POSITIVE FILM.
FILM here indicates that the item being scanned is transparent to light; this setting is also used for slide scanning. Positive indicates that the image is in true colors (ie the grass is green and sky is blue), whereas negative indicates reversed colors, as produced in some photo finishing processes. (If you are scanning a black and white slide in true colors, choose TPU: POSITIVE FILM as the DOCUMENT SOURCE and BLACK AND WHITE PHOTO as the IMAGE TYPE.)
If the DOCUMENT SOURCE is flatbed, the scanner will not activate the backlight in the transparency unit. If the DOCUMENT SOURCE is greyed out and you cannot select a TPU option, close the twain, reseat the power/communication cable connecting flatbed to TPU, then re-open the twain and try again.
4) Ensure the other twain settings are correct for the type of scan you are doing.
IMAGE TYPE should be color photo for all positive or negative color transparencies, or BLACK AND WHITE PHOTO for monochrome transparencies.
DESTINATION is unimportant, however you should select a RESOLUTION appropriate to what you plan to do with the scans. (There are no hard and fast rules for DPI. As a general guideline, if you are saving scans at original size, a resolution ranging from 400-600 DPI should capture enough information to faithfully record the image. If the slide or negative will be enlarged, you will need to increase this DPI accordingly. We have no guidelines on this; you will need to experiment and view the output to gauge the appropriate input DPI from the scanner.)
PREVIEW. If your scanner is doing an AUTOMATIC THUMBNAIL PREVIEW, the slides will automatically preview and appear in boxes on the left side. Here, you can select or deselect the slides you wish to scan.
If you recieve a message that the scanner could not find the film, click the CONFIGURATION button and uncheck AUTOMATIC THUMBNAIL PREVIEW FOR FILM, then OK, and try the PREVIEW button (page with corner folded down) again.
In this mode, you will have to manually marquee or crop the slides you wish to scan. Use the left mouse button to lasso one slide inside a box made of dotted lines, then click scan. Only the selected area will scan. Repeat this process (manually crop then scan) for as many slides or filmstrips are on the bed.
5) Click CLOSE once scanning is complete. The images will now transfer to the application in use.
