The film has been heated and is gumming up the winder.
Remove the film, clean the capstans and put in a new film. go with ASA400 film.

SOURCE: Can't advance film, press shutter, no result

Do you have film in the camera? If so, is it an old film or you have just loaded it?
If it's an old film, could it be at the end of the roll - to check this, 'lightly' turn the rewind lever backwards and forwards. As the camera is pointing away from you, turning the rewind knob clockwise will normally rewind the film (don't press the rewind button in, we don't actually want to rewind the film yet), turning the knob clockwise should be tight and a firm stop, if the film is at the end, you will feel the same tight firm stop if you turn it counter-clockwise. Don't turn the rewind knob backwards (counter-clockwise) too hard, you'll unscrew it and it may fall apart. If turning it backwards rolls freely in a full circle, then you have film left.
Another option is that, since it's been so long since you used it, the loading of the film may have gone amis and sometimes the cassette will flip backwards, jamming the film in place so it wont advance - if you have loaded the film and not taken any pics or have not been able to advance it at all, it should be safe to open the back as the film will be in it's original loading position, if you have left the film in it from some time and don't know what stage it's up to it may be best to take it to a camera store where they will have a "Black Bag" to put the camera in and manually open and unload the film. Make sure you get an experienced person - some pimply-face teen that's never used a film camera can easily put their fingers through the shutter while it's in the black bag - I've seen it plenty of times.
OK, that's enough to get started, did this work or do we need to try more options?

This Yashica FR's film advance is loose and does not wind the film, the shutter button does not work either! It has a new battery in it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm not sure if I'm miss


yashika is a really cheaply built brand of camera, they always have been. as cheap as they have gotten now you might as well come up to the digital age. but if you are one of those hard core old school photographers then you can find some good canon, nikon or pentax film cameras on ebay really cheap. i wouldn't mess with this one any more

Camera shows flashing H in rear screen and won't wind on film


Unfortunately on your model the flashing H means there's an electrical fault which needs repair.

In practice, it's an old obsolete model and few spare parts will be available. Any kind of professional repair will cost far more than the camera is worth. But as almost all 35mm compacts are now virtually worthless it means that you can get fantastic models for free or very cheap. All of mine have come for free via FreeCycle, Freegle, and by just asking people I know as most have unused and unwanted cameras lying around. Even the superb and very under-rated Canon Sureshot Classic 120 which has one of the sharpest lenses ever put onto a 35mm compact can be had for zilch as the batteries cost more than the camera is worth (new batteries: about £10).

Sorry this is not the answer you hoped for, but I hope that it enables you to fix the problem in a different way at almost no cost.

I need a new battericap


Normally you'd have next to no chance: not many AFM35's were made and they mainly appealed to well-off, older, amateur photographers. As a result used ones are rarely for sale and parts donors are as rare as **** ****. If you do find a parts donor they've likely been dropped damaging the battery cover which is exactly where the camera tends to land. On the plus side, the cover on this model is a round bayonet type fitting much like the type used on some film SLRs and sometimes on motor drive covers. I don't currently have an AFM35 in my collection but I do have a Canon Sureshot Classic 120 and the battery cover looks like it may well be a passable replacement for your damaged one. As a first point of call visit a camera repairer or a large used film camera outlet to try a few covers for size. If you're in the UK and in the London area then Mr.Cad in Croydon is hard to beat for odd parts like these. I'm confident that you'll find a cover which fits, but you may need to do a little surgery to transplant parts from the old cover to the new to get a fully functional cover. The only other fix is to get one custom made by an engineering hobbyist. They'll need either the original cap as a pattern or may be able to use the camera itself to work out what's needed. You can also be a bit more Heath Robinson and adapt a cover which doesn't really fit properly at all, but is held in place by a plate secured to the bottom of the camera using the tripod mounting thread. At the very least it will buy you time whilst you source a better alternative. Canon Sureshot Classic 120's are fairly easy to find and go very cheaply (£15 or so on auction sites). If you see one in good condition then you've nothing to lose in trying it: even if the cover does not fit you'll discover that the camera originally cost about the same as the Rollei and does pretty much everything the Rollei does but is a largely unrecognised gem. The light metering is highly reliable and the spot metering is superb. I can honestly say that the 38-120mm zoom lens outperforms some of my Leica and Zeiss T* primes and in my opinion is one of the best lenses ever fitted to any compact 35mm which I've owned. The only downside is that it's autofocus only. I hope that you've found my suggestions to be of some use and ask only that you return the favour by rating my answer.

Load film in camera press shutter release film dosent stop at 1 keeps going


This may be normal.
Since I don't know what you have, I can't say.
Some camera models are designed to advance the film all at once. then, as you take pics, it winds the film back into the canister, one at a time. If you then open the back of the camera by mistake, you do not expose all your film. Some early Canon Sureshots had that feature.
If your camera keeps trying to advance the film past the end of the roll, have it fixed or replace it.
