    I did exactly that and it won't work still.

  • shnaydine Oct 03, 2009

    I did all that already and it still won't work.

  • shnaydine Oct 03, 2009

    I don't need to know how to do it. I am asking for help because there is something wrong with the it. I was under the impression that you can help solve problems with camera. If I was wrong I need my money back before I get further. Than you

    I don't think your people are reading my email. I did find the small black button and i did push on it before trying to rewind it. As I said this is not the first time I rewind this camera. There is a problem and that is why I paid $12.99 to find help. If your cannot fix it don't let me waste my time. Simply be honest with me and refund me my money. Than you

On the bottom of the camera, you should find a very small button, with a dot on it. Press this in before you try rewinding. It is the release button.

    Since all failed, you can go into a pitch dark room and remove the film and rewind it by hand, then take the camera to be repaired. A camera shop can remove the film for you but, they will charge you.

On the bottom you have the Film rewind button. On the top you have the film rewind knob with crank . Here are the instructions on how to rewind the film. You can tell you have reached the end of the film by the frame counter and the film advance lever. Either the film advance lever will not turn at all or it will not turn all the way. First press in the rewind button, you may immediately let go of it, its on the bottom as shown before. Then turn the rewind crank clock wise until the frame counter, which counts backwards as you rewind, reaches "S" then open the back cover, remove the film, place it back in its canister and have it developed as soon as possible.

Hi Roseline, I read your question and comments, I just wanted you to know that Fixya is a service that allows (regular) people to sign up and earn extra money by answering others questions. None of us are employed by Fixya and there may be one expert that can fix your problem. I know the service is confusing but just wanted to clarify that with you. So, your question sorda gets tossed around until someone answers the question. You choose the best one and if none are the best, I am sure you do not have to pay.

Hope this helps!

When camera is on Autofocus, and Auto exposure mode, when I press lightly press shutter release it will focus, but then when I press it all the way it won't actually take a picture. Even if I release and...


Try resetting the camera by pushing both rewind buttons (two buttons with red rewind symbol), and when the motor stops running open and close the back door then try again. If not it could be as simple as a bad release switch (the switches on the N55 and N75 were garbage) or a electronic problem. Also check to make sure you did not pop the shutter blades out of position when loading film. Remove the lens and gently lift up the mirror with a fingernail and make sure the blades are flat.

Hello, just found my 35mm ae-1 camera. took some pictures and its not rewinding back up . little crank is moving but film is not going back in. am I missing a step?


Did you remember to push the rewind release button, on the bottom of the camera first? Failure to do so will either not allow you to rewind the film (without applying a lot more force than needed), rip off the film sprocket holes, damage the camera's internal gearing, or any number of other nasty things.

There should be a small button on the camera's bottom baseplate, press it in and it should rewind smoothly.

FILM ADVANCE/SHUTTER STUCK


Start simple and go from there.

I don't know if you have film in the camera so I'll read the following and choose what works for you.

I will assume the battery is working if applicable.

As stupid as this sounds press the shutter release button. If the shutter is cocked it will hold the advance. I've had people come in with this problem.

Not it?

If the film rewind has been pressed in it will disengage the film advance and stop the shutter mechanism as a result. Open the camera and close the back again resets the release.

If there is film in the camera remove it.

It there are important photos on the film and your rewind is not working use a coat to make a light proof black box. Just turn the sleeves inside out and put the camera in the coat. Wrap it so as it is closed to light. Open the camera remove the film and roll the film back in by hand.

OK so now we have a camera open with no film in it.

Open the back and look just below the shutter. On one side will be a very small "lever". This tells the camera that the film has been advanced and the shutter is cocked. Gently move the lever to the right. It should click. Now try pressing the shutter release.
Note that without film in the camera some cameras will not advance the shutter.

It should clear the problem.

If not something physical in jamming.

The film advance system could be jamming. On the side the film advance is on there will be a plastic "gear" inside the camera. Try moving by hand it should turn. You can reset the shutter this way.

Give this a try.

Hope this is helpful, if it gives you some direction please rate this answer.

Thanks

How do you remove film from a kodak 435 camera manually?


These instructions are based on you being behind the camera (i.e. about to take a picture with it - NOT as shown in the photo above).

To rewind a film, there are two controls to locate.

The first should be on the underside of the camera (baseplate). It is a small round button, which pushes into the body of the camera. This is the cog release button, which when depressed, allows the cog wheel to move freely, thereby allowing rewind.

The second is the rewind arm, which is on the top-plate, around 1/3 of the way along from the left. It folds out, and once the base button has been pushed, should allow you to rewind the fil back into its cassette. You will feel some resistance when rewinding, and then it should become noticeably free'er.

Only when those two steps have been completed should you unlock the back to release the film. The lock can "usually" (I've not got one in front of me) be found on the right hand side of the camera.

If all has gone to plan, the 35mm cassette will virtually drop out.

Hope this helps.

How do I rewind the camera to take photos? Its obvious that I'm an idiot here.. My minolta ME is having the same issue. I cant imagine both are just broken so I need to know what I am doing wrong


You normally rewind cameras to remove exposed film. On an XG-A, there is a small button on the base plate (bottom of camera) which releases the sprocket drive and allows you to rewind the film back into the cassette using the "flip out" rewind button (top right, in above picture).

Here's the manual, which identifies all the parts:
http://www.cameramanuals.org/minolta_pdf/minolta_xg-a.pdf

An ME is broadly similar.... I doubt either is broken - they are a fairly solid build.

Hope this helps

I can't get my film to rewind in my camera. Help!!!


  1. there s a small silver button on the bottom that releases the film so it can be rewound
  2. the rewind crank is on the left side on top, a little are flips out to allow you to crank it. Turn in direction of the arrow until you feel the tension release.
If you already did this and you feel hat there is still film in the camera the next question is
  1. did you load the film correctly - if not the film did not advance and thus no tension when you rewound the film
  2. is the film broken off inside the camera - too much pressure when rewinding the film without releases the clutch (little silver button)

Won`t Rewind


Do you still have the remote control? Try with the remote. If this works, the button of the camera is broken and have to be replace by a qualified technician. Good luck!

Just read on another forum where the film rewind button can get stuck (little button on the bottom of the camera, used to initiate rewind), and removing the camera bottom allows access to unjam it.  I'll try... takes a small philips eyeglass screwdriver and young eyes (or my reading glasses...)

Film advance lever and shutter release button are "stuck"


No, it is not the battery. My guess is that the film leader did not stay in the take-up spool and is now bunched up around it. Try rewinding the film carefully as you normally would but remember that you are only rewinding a small portion of the length. You can even just open the film door and start over. You will only loose 3 or 4 frames on the roll.
