Damaged Photos After taking photos with this SLR and having them developed, the right side is black as if it is undeveloped while the left side is fine. Can you tell us what the problem is and the solution?

    I have sort of the same problem except the bottom half of my pics are black, I tried the last comment of firing the shutter with no fil and back open, but I don't see anything happening? Do you think I need to take it to the shop? But why wouldn't the shutter curtains not do anything?

This sounds like the second shutter curtain is not closing completely - it's not reaching the right hand side of the shutter opening; or it's sticking & thus taking a long time to close so the part of the frame behind that area gets massively overexposed. You can check this by firing the shutter with no film in the camera and the back open. If I'm right, I'm afraid it's a repair shop job - unless you can see a hair or something like it caught up in the shutter. If so, you might just be able to remove it (all of it!) with tweezers.

It could also be caused by using too short a speed when using flash.

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

I developed 3 rolls of film recently, shot with my Nikon N6006. It was my first time using this camera. The lower half of all my photos was blacked out, due to, what the developer said, my lower shutter...


When the shutter assembly fails all you can do is to set the camera to manual exposure, select the "B" shutter speed, and with the lens off and the back open, fire the shutter. In the B setting the shutter will remain open as long as you hold the shutter button, allowing you to see if there's an obvious obstruction.

If there's nothing obvious, then the shutter assembly must be replaced and as it's an uneconomical repair on that model your camera effectively becomes a spares donor.

You can get similar models very cheaply on auction websites or even for nothing at all on sites like FreeCycle and Freegle as they're effectively worthless, even in good working order.

Hi, well firstly, my pictures are really blur and un-focused when i take them from a distance away. secondly, my developed photos have black border lines on both sides of the photo or 1 on the left/right...


I have the same issue with the borders being black , i think its because the 24/24 setting ie square shot is selected and the developers print on rectangular paper ,I may be wrong. On the bluring have you changed the focus on the front or have you got it set on B as both may have this effect . hope it helps

When I turn the knob on the camera to be able to take another picture, the number still stays at zero. What's wrong with my camera?


There are a couple of possibilities that I can think of:

First, film must be loaded into the camera for the picture counter to increment.

Second, if you've loaded film, but the counter still does not change, it is possible the film is not advancing (the film release button/knob/lever that you use to rewind the film may be activated) or the film has slipped off the sprockets on the take-up spool.

If you can stand to lose the photos you may have already taken, just open the back of the camera and make sure the film is advancing when you take a photo.

If you can't possibly lose the photos, rewind the film and take the film to be developed. Try to find a local developer that only charges for the photos that "came out"... This can save a lot of money if only a few frames develop properly (or if none come out!)

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.

How can i clean the small dirty black points on my photos?


You may need a technician (contact photo store or Canon)to physically clean your sensor. You can also do it yourself by purchasing a device such as found on this site http://www.visibledust.com/

Black bar on rt. side of photos.


elockepens


is this black bar on all the time or only when using flash? if only when using flash then your shutter speed is to high. for flash on the K1000 the shutter speed must be 1/60th sec. or slower.
if the black bar is there all the time then the shutter must be adjusted, cleaned and lubed.take or send your K1000 to a camera repair shop for an estimate first as there are no new part available,

stevdan,

take the screws off the bottom cover. there is a small lever pointing toward the front of camera with a black screw on it. gently move it to the left, this will release the lock lever. Now advance the lever and the shutter should fire. if not, it is not repairable. no parts

Blue photos??


no filter on lens,right? heat damage to the film,or the film was not processed correctly, or outdated.
way over exposure is also apossibility. take your new exposed film to a different processor.
