Re: symbol of a blank battery

You may have to manually rewind the film that you just loaded and try again. The is a manual rewind button on this camera. Before you load the new roll, check the condition of the shutter curtains/blades. Do they look out of place or pushed in?

I have a 36 exposure film in the camera with 25 pictures taken and I want to remove the film without taking more photos. How do I rewind?

To rewind the film mid-roll, press the two film rewind buttons simultaneously for one second. The two buttons are marked with a red film symbol, and double as the Auto Exposure Bracketing button to the left of the viewfinder and the Aperture/Exposure Compensation button to the right of the control panel.

The film is completely rewound when a blinking "E" shows in the control panel.

I have a 35mm nikon camera. I've changed the batteries but the film won't load. how can i load the film?

Here is what to look at: Custom Function number 8, "Auto film load when back is closed", default setting is 1 disabled on 0 it is enabled. If you have the manual for the F80 (same as N80) look on page 21 and page 72 and 73.If that is not the issue check the following: With the new batteries does the camera turn on, Can you focus, does the LCD light up? All that will let you know if you are getting power to the camera. If the answer is yes then the film should load so now check the inside of the camera back. Does it have the pressure are and roller next to the hinge. If that is missing then when you pull the film to the red dot, close the camera back there is nothing to put pressure on the film for it to load.

I recently shot three rolls of color film with my ZX-7 in auto pict mode and all the negatives turned out blank (underexposed). What happened?

lens cap ? ;-]

Did you have the asa film speed set correctly? Thats usually the cause unless your battery isn;t quite right.

I forgot how to load the film

Battery contacts corroded? If so add a few drops of rubbing alcohol on the solder joints and the contacts. Let dry over night and try again with fresh batteries

Blank Film Developing


you should have at least 6in. of exposed film from the film canister to the take-up spool unless you loaded the film in total darkness.
open the back cover to make sure the shutter is working, reload and give it another try.

Loaded film blank

Chances are the film had quite a bit of curl to it (often a sign of old film) and it was not pulled over quite far enough during auto loading, or perhaps too far and it had too much slack that the take up reel never grabbed it to advance it thru. You're not the first one this has happened to as the auto load is not as reliable as the older style where you had to load the film leader through a slot in the take up reel.

My camera won't load film

Set your lens to the smallest aperture ( largest number on lens ) f/22 or f/32 and lock it in place with the small latch on the aperture ring. The camera won't operate in auto modes without the lens set there.

'Err' & 'E"

Is the film loaded correctly? Have you tried reloading it? Also is it flashing DX too? That would mean the film speed is not DX coded so you need to set the film speed manually.
