Question about Leica C3 35mm Point and Shoot Camera

Open Question

Flashing 'E' on the screen (right side)

Recently a film got stuck in my LEICA C3 and I couldn't take a picture. I opened the back and manually removed the film (not easy). I noticed an 'E' sign flashing continually when the camera is on, which it still is doing. I daren't put another film in case that won't work either. I can't find anything in the manual that came with the camera to tell me what this flashing sign means.

If anyone can help me I'll be very grateful.
Thanks, Jess (UK)

SOURCE: Loss of function

Whilst it is still under warranty you must return it to the seller.
That is your first move - it is their responsibility.
The second is to contact the makers support site and tell them.

Bear in mind price /value not withstanding small electronic devices are replaced not repaired.

Did you mean you wanted to unload the unfinished film?
What you did then? be more clear and specific about the procedures before I can give you suggestions.

The first thing I woud suspect is that you're experiencing a low battery issue. Make sure the battery is fully charged. Also make sure the battery terminals on the battery and inside the camera are clean (use a qtip and alcohol or a pencil eraser). Also, you can try to spray some compressed air into the lens assembly, in hopes of freeing any dust or lint that may be binding the lens shutter, or other gear inside the lens assembly. I saw on a web blog that this happens on rare occasions, but they didn't mention what causes it.
Aside from that, you could be experiencing a ribbon connector issue to the LCD display, or some other issue. Take the camera into a local camera repair shop for an estimate, or contact Panasonic Support to see what can be done, and how much it would cost:

Make sure you get an estimate first, since the cost of repair can be high.
Wish I had more, but hope this helps.

Film rewind button at the bottom of the camera stuck on the "in" position. Cannot get it to release.


Put the camera in a change bag open it then manually rewind the film. From there you may be able to free the button. If the button continues to be stuck here is something worth trying that I have seen others do with stuck buttons and aperture blades. To the button add a few drops of lighter fluid let it soak in. Sounds crazy yes, however sometimes that will dissolve gunk buildup freeing the button. That trick works wonders on stuck aperture blades; actually a common practice at repair shops.

What does the E mean on the screen.I put a new film in at Xmas time and only took a few pictures when the E showed up and couldn't click the picture. took to camera shop replaced batteries and film ...


If you go to http://www.pentaximaging.com/support/manuals-and-literature/ you can find the manual for your camera. From my experience the E on a Pentax camera means the film isn't loaded properly. Hope this helps.

I received a Leica Digilux 2 from a relative and i cant seem to see anything thru the viewfinder or the lcd screen. Its just black. Is the shutter not open? I can see all the numbers and settings around...


Open the back of the camera. **** the camera as if you were advancing the film. While looking in the back, push the shutter release, like you were taking a photo.
You see the mirror flip up and glimpse a flash of light as the camera cycles.
If you do not see the mirror flip up and return, the camera needs serious repair..
As for the LED Display, put some new batteries in it.

Exposed film is stuck in the camera. Rewind crank won't budge and I'm not going to force it.


Hi,
If you need to save the pictures you will need to find a dark room and open the back to see what jammed up. Good Luck !!!!!!!!!

mandie22,
on this model two strokes are needed to fully advance the film and to set the counter to the next #,
so advance the lever, bring it back and advance again.
