Canon EOS Rebel T2 - film loaded, but then wouldn't take a picture, the frame count was flashing on screen. What is the problem?

Hi. Open the camera back and pull the film further over towards the pick up spool, close the back and try again to take a photo, i had the same problem with an eos 650 and it always worked.Good luck.

I need help loading film on to a Canon AZ-2900R Automatic

It is not possible for me to find a manual, but the camera looks like my my EOS5oo (film camera, not the digital one)
I still have some film camera's from Canon and the way to put in the film is the same in almost every one, so I give it a try. Make sure you have the correct batteries in the camera. You can check by turning the mode dial to any position other than L and look on the display. If the battery symbol is flashing, it is too low. Turn the mode dial to the L. Open the camera, then put the roll in the left hand space and while holding the spool in place pull out enough film (one to 2 inch) to reach the orange point on the right hand side. Then close the camera.
If you pulled out more film, please put it back in the spool by turning the knob.
As soon as the camera is closed it will spool the film to the starting point. A little spool symbol and the ISO will be visible on the display. When the spool is blinking something went wrong and you have to insert again.
I'm not sure if your camera detects the correct ISO, but if not you have to correct that your self. I don't know how to do that.
I think there is a category for analog cameras too. This one was in digital cameras. Success

When i try to advance my ae-1 camera it takes a picture! how do i fix it

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. ............or.
you can also try....

i'm not an expert on the AE-1. It is a camera I've never had any desire to own. But on most older slr camera the rewind knob will turn when the film is advanced. But only after the slack has been taken out of the film still in the canister. Since you've already taken a few shot the film shot be very secure on the take up spool. To check that it is, slowly crank the film rewind crank clockwise. After a few turns the film should become tight in the canister, and you will feel the tension. If this happens then the film was loaded properly. If after quite a few turns you still feel nothing, then the film was not properly inserted into the take up spoll. If the film was not loaded correctly the film leader will go inside the canister as you crank. But that is not a problem. Any photo lab can pull the leader back out. Just make sure they know what happened.

I bought this canon rebel t2 film camera recently and used film with ASO 400. Portraits look ok. but the landscapes, especially the sky area look dark and grainy. I used ef 28-135mm usm lens. Any solutions...

That's odd that the pictures would be coming out under exposed unless the previous owner has gone into the camera functions and switched the ISO from auto to manual. Another reason is that the exposure compensation has been activated and set for - exposure

Under "normal" use the camera will read the DX code on the film canisters and adjust the ISO automatically. However the previous owner may have shut this off in preference to setting the ISO manually. Even though you have ISO 400 in the camera the ISO on in the camera setting may be ISO 1600.

Checking for the Auto ISO and exposure compensation is fairly easy as you can see the film canister through the film window or you know you have loaded 400 speed film. on the LCD panel at the back of the camera is an ISO icon and exposure compensation.

Make sure the ISO for the camera is the same as what you have loaded and if the exposure compensation is to the right of 0 then the resulting picture will be dark. Move this back to the Zero.

I wasn't able to find an exact manual (if you don't have one) for your camera but have found a camera with similar. Here is a ling for that manual.

Hope this was a help

My Pentax SPII shoots blank images

You can check the shutter without film in the camera. Remove the lens and open the film door. You will see the cloth curtains of the shutter in the center. Advance the film lever to **** the shutter and set the speed dial to a slower speed like 1/15. Hold the camera so it is aimed a a light source, (a window will do) and fire the shutter. You should see the light through the shutter for the time duration is is set to. (1/15). If you see the light source, repeat the process going up one speed setting until you reach 1/1000. If you see the shutter open and close as described, then try another roll. After you load the film and close the back door, make note of what the rewind knob is doing as you advance the film. It should spin counter-clockwise each time. That is a easy test to know that the film is traveling in the camera properly. Vary your exposures with the new roll at different speeds and f-stops. You should get exposures, but if not let us know.

I cant seem to load film in my camera . it winds it back up as soon as i close it or try to take pictures

It's still in auto-rewind mode. Depending on the model, do a manual rewind with no film in the camera to reset the internal counter. Then load film and try it. Please leave feedback if this helps.

Camera wont accept any film?

1.The film leader should be placed correctly.
2. the ASA detecting pins in the film champers should be clean.
3. Check for any buttons being in pressed conditions.
4.See whether the frame counter resets when opening the door
5.Then try with a mechanic.
