Push the rewind button on the bottom of the camera, then turn the rewind knob to the right to rewind any film that may be in the camera. Lift the rewind knob up to open the back door. remove the film canister if there.
on the new film canister pull enough film to reach the take up spool. attach the leader to the spool and close the back door, advance the film to counter number 1. enjoy.

Camera keeps sucking the film back into the canister instead of loading it


Check the bottom DX pin in the film chamber. These get bent easily and it is also used for the film detect switch so that the camera knows there is film in the camera.

I have one last picture (film) left in my Polaroid and every time i close the bottom compartment it just ejects without letting me take the picture.


First of all you can't use that film anymore. If it gets ejected, it gets exposed to light which causes the film to develop. Also the film was already exposed when you didn't load it in the camera yet. When you buy a new cassette (that's the film holder) there's a darkslide on top. This darkslide prevents light to get to the film. When you load your camera, the darkslide ejects immediately. That is what happens to your last film. The camera recognizes it as a new cassette and ejects the darkslide, but in this case it's the film.

I've got Nikon F65. I cannot load film. The motor which load up the film doesn't move at all. Please help!


I don't know this model but you can try this.Drop the film canister in and pull the film strip out and place on the film advance sprocket.Rotate the sprocket by hand/thumb until film is seated (1 turn). If the auto feed is working you will be OK. 2 other things ,1 of course load film in dark area, 2 check the batteries on the camera first, if they are week your film advance wont work ,Good Luck.

Minolta X-300s film loading problem


Hi -- yes if you cannot advance the transport mechanism ( and so cannot load the film ) this is because shutter is not working ! This a very common problem and is due to leaking capacitor ( 220 microF ) situated on the botttom of the camera. Remove bottom cover and replace the capacitor . You should be able now to release shutter and load your film.

How to put film in the camera


Hey buddy5000,
The process to load film into your camera is as follows
1. Turn the camera on and make sure the frame counter reads 0 if it doesn't there is probably film in the camera.
2. Press the film door release button and slide the release downward.
3. Place the new film cartridge in the film cartridge chamber and pull out the film leader until it reaches the red dot on the bottom right side of the film chamber. Make sure the holes on the lower edge of the film engage the teeth on the sprocket.
4. Now close the back door and the film should load automatically and# 1 should appear in the frame counter, and if it does not then the film is not loaded properly.

I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

The film automatically loads then rewinds when a new film canister is added


Hm. Well, the way this camera works is actually very clever. When you first load a film into it, it winds the entire film out of the cassette and into the camer. As each shot is taken, the film is rewound back into the film cassette. The advantage of this is that if the back of the camera is accidentally opened, the shots which have already been taken are already safely back in the film cassette and will not be damaged by the light ingress. However, your camera is behaving strangely. I would check that the electrical contacts where the film cassette goes in are clean. You can clean them using a cotton bud moistened with methylated spirits.
