I am using a Canon A1, and the film advance lever is stuck and the meter does not show. It was just working a minute ago.


Rewind the film and try 'dry-firing' the camera, checking to see if the lens is working properly. May be a bad contact between the lens and the body, may just the the film has loaded slightly on the huh.

Two rolls of film developed at CVS - apparently not exposed???


it is not unknown for film developing sites to with hold good photos so take another practice roll and have it developed somewhere else
That will prove either the camera or the developer

Hi, I have taken over 20 rolls of film so far and haven't had a problem until now. Whenever, I go outside to take pictures (in the daylight), my pictures come out black (last 5 rolls of film) In the same...


I think the aperture is not shutting down to the opening you set it to. In an SLR, the aperture is normally fully open for viewing through the lens. When you press the button, the mirror flips up and the aperture closes to the figure you have set, then the shutter fires. If you have set a daytime aperture and the aperture sticks, you get a wide open aperture and an overexposed shot, but at night, you have set an open or almost open aperture anyway.

It is possible that the shutter is the problem, but the aperture is more likely to go wrong in my experience. It only takes a drop of oil on the blades. There ought to be a button or lever to shut the aperture down for depth of field preview which you could use to test this, or just look in the lens when the shutter fires to see if the aperture closes.

I didnt use all of my film but i pressed the rewind button and when i turned it on the film rewond on its own. what do i do?


Nothing. You pressed the rewind button and the film rewound: it didn't do so "on its own", it just did what you told it to.

Get it developed and put another film in and don't make the same mistake twice.

You can buy a film leader retriever which fishes out the end of the film from the canister enabling you to reload it, but you need to remember exactly which frame you were at. To get it back to the correct position you then set the camera to fully manual and using the fastest shutter speed and smallest aperture, leave the lens cap on and cover the viewfinder and away from bright light you fire the shutter until the counter reads one lower than you were last at (if your frame counter counts down to zero shots remaining). If the subsequent shots don't register exactly with the old shots, the automatic film processing machinery will likely cut into some frames when cutting the negs into strips. You'll also find that a leader retriever costs more than another roll of film and can take some skill to use.

In summary, your Minolta 7000 is behaving exactly as designed and the cheapest fix is to just drop in a new roll of film.

On the lcd it shows "E" "E 9" and I do not know what this means and the camera will not work. What needs to be done


This question has been answered repeatedly. Pentax error codes are mostly for camera repair technician diagnosis and most of the time mean the camera is broken and needs professional servicing. Some Pentax Error Codes:
E: "E" often indicates a film jam. This code can appear when the film is inserted incorrectly, when the batteries are changed in the middle of a roll of film, if you are using defective film, etc. If "E" appears in your camera's information display, try to rewind your film manually (see your user's guide for instructions on how to activate your mid-roll rewind function), and try a different roll. If this problem keeps occurring, you might need to send the camera to us for repair.
E3, E7, E37: These codes often signal a problem with your shutter mechanism.
E9, E93-E97: These codes may indicate a problem with your zoom lens.
H0-H9: These H codes can also identify a problem with your camera's shutter.
U1-U9: These U codes may also indicate a problem with your camera's zoom lens.

These codes are standard for both Digital and film cameras.

Why is the film automatically rewinding around 15 shots instead of the end of the 24 shot roll? The batteries are fresh.


the roll sensor is not reading the silver code on the film roll.
Open the camera when you have no film in it.
Clean the film roll slot where the "fingers" are.
These fingers touch the case of the film roll to determine the film type, which includes the number of exposures. You nmay have to "adjust" the fingers so that they make good contact with the film roll case.

Look at different rolls of film, notice the silver blocks are different. If the roll has a "dent" on it, it can't be sensed correctly.

Hope this helps!

remove the battery and check that it is good. replace battery and open back door, close the door and it should run the motor / transport. if so, load film up to the drive sprocket being sure film will catch on the sprocket.
or move the latch holding back cover, and open the door fully. check the pressure plate on the door, gently pull the plate up a little to increase pressure on the film. bring the holding lever out toward the latch and close the door to lock the lever back to position.

Help!! 10-year old Accura Zoom 80 film camera is taking blurry photos all of a sudden


you should be able to place your hand in front of the auto focus window while looking in front of camera (be careful not to blind yourself with the flash) you should notice the lens moving sightly as if to focus. The best way though is to actually shoot a roll through it. Do not shoot a wedding or anything of real importance...the cost of a roll of film and develop is worth piece of mind.
