Ok, The dark slide has to be in the right way. A small tab sticks out of one end that matches a small slot below the main slot where you put the dark slide. The tab will sometimes miss the release arm in that smaller slot

My shutter got stuck at 14 frames.i wound it back but want to go back to the 14th frame,will this ruin the pictures i have already taken?


Could be that when the load builds up there is friction to jam the film. You must not take chance with the shot film and so try to click with the cap on the rewound portion and if the film is not advancing then it is possible that the camera must be checked with a dummy film to confirm on why the jamming takes place.It can be also due to failure of the loading mechanism

Try pressing the film release button on the underside of the camera. This should unstick the advance roller.
If possible, replace the watch battery for your camera (inserted in the bottom, right by the teeny black button I mentioned above).
Change your exposure setting to Bulb exposure and back.
If all else fails, take your camera into the darkroom (or at least a completely light-insulated closet, bathroom, etc.), and pop open the back and recover your film. Hopefully you won't have too much wasted film on your hands.
Good on you, however, for not forcing the lever. Nothing good will come of that.

i think the jam in the Fixing/Fuser Assy.? Because a E007 is related to a non-detection of the Fixing Film/Upper Roller not spinning correctly. Please check the condtion of your Film also check the green handle in this area for paper jam removal if it is broken or removed, may also cause this error. Good luck sir let us know how you make out.

FILM ADVANCE/SHUTTER STUCK


Start simple and go from there.

I don't know if you have film in the camera so I'll read the following and choose what works for you.

I will assume the battery is working if applicable.

As stupid as this sounds press the shutter release button. If the shutter is cocked it will hold the advance. I've had people come in with this problem.

Not it?

If the film rewind has been pressed in it will disengage the film advance and stop the shutter mechanism as a result. Open the camera and close the back again resets the release.

If there is film in the camera remove it.

It there are important photos on the film and your rewind is not working use a coat to make a light proof black box. Just turn the sleeves inside out and put the camera in the coat. Wrap it so as it is closed to light. Open the camera remove the film and roll the film back in by hand.

OK so now we have a camera open with no film in it.

Open the back and look just below the shutter. On one side will be a very small "lever". This tells the camera that the film has been advanced and the shutter is cocked. Gently move the lever to the right. It should click. Now try pressing the shutter release.
Note that without film in the camera some cameras will not advance the shutter.

It should clear the problem.

If not something physical in jamming.

The film advance system could be jamming. On the side the film advance is on there will be a plastic "gear" inside the camera. Try moving by hand it should turn. You can reset the shutter this way.

Give this a try.

Hope this is helpful, if it gives you some direction please rate this answer.

Thanks
