Flashing F in LCD panel

My camera works fine for a while and then the F starts flashing in the lcd panel and I can't use the camera any more. My aperture is set at the highest setting and no matter what I do the camera won't work.

Re: Flashing F in LCD panel

While looking at the camera front with the lens off, you will see a small tab sticking out just on the outside of the mount ring at about 7 oclock.

You should be able to move the tab down with your finger and it should snap back. If it is loose or doesn't snap back, it will need repaired/replaced

My Nikon N75 says error and there is a flashing circle with a dot in the middle when i look through the lens.... What does this mean?!

If the LCD panel shows "E" then the film isn't loaded properly. If the LCD panel shows "ERR" and "E" blinking, then the film is not correctly advanced. If the LCD panel shows a blinking "E" when the exposure meter is turned on, then film remains in the camera after it has been rewound. In all cases, reload film.

If it's not one of those cases, or if the problem persists, please reply to this post giving further details.

Why is the LCD flashing Fee and wont take a picture?

Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest aperture (largest f/number). Lock it in place if there is a lock. You control the aperture from the camera as you would with a lens without an aperture ring.

I have a canon eos 1000 35mm with no flash. Works fine, but the LCD in the viewfinder has a large blot on it. Any ideas? Repairable?

Yes, its repairable, but frankly it wouldn't be cost effective to do so. The EOS 1000 is selling for less than $40 for the body on the used market:

and it would cost you much much more to send it off to Canon and have the LCD panel replaced.

Camera inoperable

According to the manual found here:

It says, "If the film is not loaded properly, 'E' on the LCD panel blinks, indicating that the film is not loaded properly. Open the back cover and load the film once again."

Pentax MZ 50 film winding problem

Well, I'm not a camera repairman, but it sounds to me (and probably to you too) that the electronics are damaged or perhaps there's dust in the contacts inside. I also have an MZ-50. There's so many electronics involved and they don't age so gracefully. I would consider buying another one off eBay or you can get a ZX-30 (same as MZ-30) for $75 from Blue Moon Camera & Machine with a 1 year warranty (parts and labor). The best way would be, in my opinion, to get a manual, mechanical camera from the 1970s and put a good lens on it. Those seem to last forever. No electronics to worry about. Advance and rewind the film manually. You can use a digital camera as a light meter to set the aperture and shutter speed. I'm thinking of going this route when my MZ-50 finally conks out.
