Question about Lomo Kompakt Automat 35mm Point and Shoot Camera

My lomo will not advance the film after taking a shot

My lomo will not advance the film after the picture is taken. It is not jammed-
it seems that the spool to which you attach the film and to which it winds to as you advance the film, will not pull the film forward. It will spin but not move the film. Any thoughts.

Re: My lomo will not advance the film after taking a shot

I fixed this a couple of ways with my own LCA.

One is to stick a piece of paper in between the 2 parts of the tape-up spool (the internal and external parts) to make them a tighter fit.

Also, I often fold the leader of the film back (very close to it's end), and push it inbetween the 2 parts of the take up spool, making sure one sprocket is securely placed into the small tooth/hook on the spool. So, the film is folded around the tooth and towards the back, on the inside of the spool.

On loading a fresh film into the camera the motor winds through to the last frame ie does not stop at first frame

That's entirely correct. Your camera winds all of the film out upon loading and each shot then winds the film back into the canister. Your frame counter works in countdown mode telling you how many shots remain rather than how many you've taken.

Many other camera do the same thing. The beauty of it is twofold: if the camera back is accidentally opened, then the shots already taken are safely in the film canister (except for the last shot), also when the film has finished you wait less time for the short length remaining to be rewound rather than the entire roll.

Camera does not rewind after end of film it spins, but does not engage the film. Joe M.

it is likely that this model of camera spins the entire roll onto the take-up spool, and then slowly rewinds one frame at a time until the last picture is taken. Then it has already almost rewound,

This shows up when you load the film. The cameras digital counter counts up to the number of pictures available, and counts downward each picture taken.

The shutter on my Canon G-III QL 17 has jammed. When I press the shutter release that film can be advanced, but it has taken no picture. Now the camera is also stuck on Bulb. Is it worth fixing?

suspect that the syncronisation chain is jammed this can happen after many years, not worth repairing most likely there are not many who have the parts now, probably best to purchase a replacement from second hand if you like the camera and the results it gives. i suspect they are cheaper than any attempt to repair.

The shutter button does not appear to click down and the lense does not open so no picture is taken. Usually it makes a sound and you know the picture has taken. HELP MEEE????

I had a similar problem with another brand of this type of camera. I would click the shutter and hear it open but it would not go through the series of four lens exposures unless I manually turned the film advance wheel . I think it may be because the motor isn't strong enough to draw the film across and trigger the shots. cheap plastic, ya know. I never got the film developed but im interested to see if it got anything at all.

My super sampler wont click after i take my firs shot??

Pull the string to advance the film. As long as your film sprocket holes are lined up with the sprockets in the camera, your shutters will fire the next time you press the shutter button.

I can't seem to click to take a photograph

Pulling the string doesn't take the picture, it advances the film. Press the button on top of the camera, you'll hear the shutters go, and then pull the string. Just make sure the film is taut when you load it, and that you're not yanking on the advance string too hard.

Lomo supersampler.... how do i get the film out?

on the camera you have a round loop on one side and a rectangle loop on the other side. next to the rectangle there is a narrow black slide button. press that button then open the camera. on the bottom where the film on the outside of the case is a black button that hold the film in place. slide that outward then remove the film.
