SOURCE: jammed film advance lever

There is a capacitor that goes bad in the X series. You can find them on eBay. A simple soldering job. It is in the bottom of the camera, accessible by removing the bottom cover. (4 screws)

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Canon AE1 Shutter Problem

It could be a simple issue with the shutter magnets, or something more severe with the electronics. What does the meter needle do when you push the shutter release down? With the speed dial set at 1/125 or higher and no lens, the needle should move fairly high. If it pegs to the bottom right away, that is a bad sign.

You can check the magnets from the bottom with the cover removed. (2 screws) You can release the mechanicals of the shutter by pushing the silver lever arm (located next to the plastic shield around the magnet on the rewind side of the camera) toward the front of the camera. Be mindful of the spring attached

SOURCE: Canon AT-1 (Similar AE-1) Shutter Fires Upon Advancing Film Lever

No need to look at the schematics. It only will give you a little headache. Replace Shutter release magnet (MG#3). While winding stage the Mg#3 suppose to catch the lever and any dirt or particle may prevent it. Clean it and it shoud take care of the problem. Good Luck -James.

Minolta 700 film advance lever was working, then it wouldnt wind, now it is stuck.


Use or buy a brand new battery from store that sell lot of them.

Do not get from store that only has a few, meaning they have been sitting there for years.

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.

I've just loaded the film into my Canon A-1, and I tried to advance it to the first frame, but nothing seems to be catching the film, and the shutter button doesn't seem to be doing anything either. Please...


What has probably happened is that you have not yet engaged the sprockets into the sprocket holes in the film. Open the back and make sure the film is being pulled by the take up spool under the wind on lever until both top and bottom sprockets are engaged. If there are any torn sprocket holes in the film, cut the damaged film off, cut a new lead in section to half film width, and try again. You will lose a few shots, but the rest of the film will be fine. Shutter won't start working until the film is properly advanced. If you need to get damaged film off the take up spool just press the film return button, the one you would press the rewind the film into the can at the end of the film. It is on the bottom under the sprocket shaft.

Nikon F100 does not advance film to start of roll,


Jim, it really sounds like one of threethings. Either will require a repair shop.
1. the film sensor is not recognizing film in the film chamber, or film across the back, therefore not telling the advance motor to advance film...
2. The film advance motor itself needs replaced.
3. The rear door latch switch needs replaced.
Since everything else seems to do OK, I doubt the main computer board is bad.

Film winder jammed halfway throgh a film and i took that film out ( it expired anyway) and i tired to put new one in but i couldnt becuase the film winder wont move do i have to get this repaired?


Check all the batteries. Get fresh ones. If this is a manual, lever-action film advance and you have a camera with a spring-driven shutter you probably have a stripped sprocket and it needs new parts. If you have an electric shutter but there's one spring driven shutter speed as a backup, try that setting. If it is a totally motor driven advance, try checking the drive battery and clean the contacts. If the motor drive is removeable, take it off and try the lever-action advance. Remember, a group of AA cells are only as good as the weakest one. Good luck

Not letting take pics or advance film


Check the batteries first. The electromagnetic shutter requires power to function. To free up the shutter and advance lever, rotate the command switch to "M90" (if I recall). That should re-set the shutter and allow you to advance the lever mechanically.

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.

My daughter just got a used Minolta 700-X. We are trying to load the film, but the advance lever won't advance to load the film after we put it in. Can you help?


Are the batteries good ,is the battery cap and contacts clean? Can you fire the shutter? Move select off auto and try to release the shutter. If the shutter fired off auto and will not fire on auto with good batteries. Either the shutter or flex circuit must be replaced. There are no new parts avail. for the X700.
One other item for the X700. check to see if the shutter fully traveled on the last shot.

Takes a picture when film advance lever is moved


The magnets that control the shutter are the likely suspect. Dirt and debris can cause them not to hold properly. Hence, it fires the shutter when you advance the film. It is something you can repair yourself. I can describe the procedure if you are interested.
