This has happened to me a couple of times. It appeared when the camera was getting a lot of use and it wouldn't turn off - it was jammed on. I had to leave it a few minutes and not touch it - turn it off, then it was ok. I think it was overheated!

A SD-card will suffice. I have a SanDisk SD Ultra II which is really nifty since it also has a built-in USB-interface.

Film advance lever will not advance

Sometimes film jamming in the film can cause the shutter to be very difficult to **** . I had an Pentax years ago that was similar in design to the Ricoh and loved it.
Using a little, but NOT a lot more force may help you to complete the cocking action. Other than that I would remove the film and blow out the mechanism with compressed air. Don't know if this will definitely solve the issue. But hopefully it will.
Best Regards, Mark

I have an Olympus OM 30 SLR from the 70s. When looking through the view-finder all you can see is the very top of the picture and the rest is blurry-black plus you can't press the button to take a photo...

The mirror has probably stuck or jammed in a 'partially up' position. Try removing the lens, and press gently on the BACK of the mirror - the dark underside, as you look inside the camera (never touch the front, silvered side - it is surface silvered, and very easy to damage), to try to raise it. If it can be raised, then it is not totally jammed, and gently raising it like this, then letting it fall back MAY be enough to free it. If it won't move at all, then it is jammed. Repair, if possible, will be expensive.

We cant find film for it,serial # 5080332 .it is a olypus

Its going to be difficult to identify by just serial number - as already noted - they are not unique numbers between all the models that Olympus have ever made. Be aware that olympus have also made other formats over the years, including APS (like 35mm, but smaller) - which is usually recogniseable by a small "circle and triangular logo" on the front of the camera.

Best bet would be to take it into your local photo store. They will probably know what it is. They will almost certainly have film (and batteries) for it. APS and 35mm are still available in shops, although not as widely as used to be, and numbers are diminishing.

You could also try eBay:

Buying film is only have the battle (or fun!!). Two other things to consider are "total cost of picture - from film to paper" and where to get your pictures processed.

If you had plans to put more than five films through it (say 180 shots), I'd recommend seriously considering a move to digital.

Feel free to add further questions.

Hope this is helpful

Hi I need to know where I could find a film for my Akira cam 7000 the size of the film is 50mm

50mm film does not exist.

As far as I recall the Akira 7000 is a cheap plastic pseudo-SLR usually given away as a "free gift" when you order things like catalogues and it uses standard 35mm film. A similar piece of tat used to be sold as the "Olympia".

It's a dreadful camera which is worth even less than the roll of film you put into it, but fine if you want to get in on the current craze for Holga-style photography.

Film loading problem Minolta Maxxum 430SI RZ

not solution, but a suggestion, something to look for/try.
i think it is trying to tighten it and take up the slack in the spool. there might be little red dots or something like that on the inside when you open it up. you are supposed to have the film go to a certain spot before you close it. normally, the film is sticking out the right length, but you might have to pull it out extra first. you might also have to tuck the end of the film behind a roller or in front of a roller before you close it. look for really tiny diagrams inside the camera, or maybe just tiny arrows indicating which way the film is supposed to wind. good luck with your class!

Film advance lever stuck

The shutter parts are most likely broken. That is usually the tell-tale sign of a broken camera, not advancing. Repairs for film cameras are very expensive and if parts are needed, it may be impossible for a 20+ year old camera. My suggestion is to find a replacement film camera system. Your Ricoh lenses will fit on a Pentax camera, but not work in Auto Mode. Prices of used Pentax cameras with built in motor drives are around $100. Check on line cameras stores. They have lots of use cameras/lense. A lens to use on that is another $75 or so. Only Nikon and Canon make new film cameras anymore. If you want an indestructable K-mount, find a Pentax K1000. Many lenses are available but no motor drive nor auto exposure on that model.
