35mm film developed with streaks

I recently developed 12 rolls of film for developing. All but 20 +- photos had a single horizontal streak across them. I am guessing a light leak. I have very little photo experience so I could be completely off here.
Until then, the camera took amazing photos. A third roll of film was diveloped at another location to be sure it was not related to developer error. Again, streaks. My daughter will be starting a photo class at school soon and will need to have this, or similar... Is this a coomon result of something specific? I just dont know if it is worth fixing. please, your feedback is much needed. Thank you in advance

I take it the streak is a hot streak of light. If you're shooting negative, look at the negative and see if it's one long streak. If so the light leak could be anywhere between the film roll and the take up roll. I would open up the back, go into a closet and shine a bright light on the front of the camera and see if you can find the leak and tape it up. Otherwise, 35mm SLR's are very cheap these days. I'd recommend a Canon A-1 for your daughter, but you can't go wrong with any Canon or Nikon.

White streaks on photos


Light leak, definately a light leak. You need to change or add foam around the chamber to prevent any light from entering.

You have light leak somewhere to the film.
Usually from the bad film door seal.

you should have at least 6in. of exposed film from the film canister to the take-up spool unless you loaded the film in total darkness.
open the back cover to make sure the shutter is working, reload and give it another try.

2 rolls out of a 3-pack ruined.


I would suggest you buy an off-brand roll of 12 or 24 exposures. Run it through the camera taking snaps of anything -- but make sure you vary the lighting, ISO, shutter speed, aperture, etc. as you snap the pics. Don't worry too much about composition. This roll is a quick test, NOT for photos to keep.

Have the film developed and then follow-up with comments on the results. I'll gladly assist you further at that time.

Large, bright orange light streak in pictures


It does sound like a light leak, but hopefully all that has happened is that the foam seals surrounding the film compartment have perished and need replacing. With luck, this is unlikely to be expensive - check with your local camera shop or second hand camera dealer.

Streaking Printer


On that product, it is just as likely that a single color drum is bad. Not the developer. That is a more likely problem then the developer.
