I bought a second hand Mamiya 645 Af but as soon as I load a film it shows a error message ERR 01 .... what is that ?


From the manual:
"If the error display is not canceled when the shutter release button is pressed again, insert the Dark slide, half-press the shutter release button while pressing the roll film holder's manual film advance button to wind up the film, then contact your nearest Mamiya agent or service center."

If you need a manual, you can download one from

How do I unload or rewind the film


Not All camera do it the same way.
Some have an electric rewind - usually those that automatically advance the film after each picture. They will have a catch somewhere that lets you open the back - it's normally at the right hand side (as you look at the back) or.. Cameras that you advance the film with a lever under your right thumb usually have a rewind crank at the left hand end of the camera . Generally it is on the top folded into the round thing but sometimes it is on the bottom in a matching place. You unfold the crank so that you can wind the film back into its can. However, You must first operate a little button that will be located in a small recess on the base of the camera - this disengages the wind-on machanism inside the camera so that the film can go the other way. Normally you have to keep this pressed all the time you are winding.
When the film is all in the can you will feel the wind ease off and the noise will change . now you can open the camera. Again this is done in different ways on different cameras, but the commonest is to take the winding crank and pull it upwards as if you are trying to pull it out of the top of the camera. It will come so far than suddenly the back will release and open a short way.
Some cameras have a slider hidden at the right hand end on the side, that looks like a small silver bar that you pull down with your thumb-nail.

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.

I just bought new Lomo Fisheye2 camera. I read the instruction first before i will do anything to my camera. Once i read everything, i just follow the instruction step by step. Putting AA battery and...


If your film was TOTALLY blank then it's been bleached due to a processing error. By totally blank, I mean that there are no frame numbers or other film markings on your blank film. Otherwise, you simply have an unexposed film.

First, operate the camera with the camera back open, hold the camera up to a bright light and operate the camera as you look into the back of the lens. If you see a brief bit of light coming through as you operate the shutter then the shutter is admitting light into the camera and so you should have got some kind of an image unless you failed to correctly load the film (very common).

Unfortunately, there's no way to tell unless you try another roll of film. Once the film is loaded, turn the rewind crank gently to take up slack film and take a few pictures; each time you advance the film the rewind crank should turn a little. If it doesn't then the film has not been correctly loaded as the film leader has not engaged onto the take-up spool. If so, open the camera and re-engage the film. If it clearly has engaged, then the take-up spool is failing to rotate when the film is advanced: try taking a few shots and winding on the film with the back open. If the film is not advancing then you have a faulty Lomo. This is extremely common as it is a plastic toy camera with atrocious build quality and materials and is the FishEye is only designed for paltry ten rolls of film lifespan.

A final check for film which has not advanced through the camera is if the rewind is extremely short when the film has finished.

How do u get the camera 2 rewind


Usually the automatic rewind starts when the film roll has come to the end. You can rewind also before that by a rewinding button you'll find usually somewhere in the camera body.

To rewind manually, press the film release button (consult the manual if you don't find it) and use the rewinding lever to rewind the film. See this for inspiration: http://www.ehow.com/how_2028878_film-mm-manual-slr-camera.html

Owner's Manual for a Fuji Discovery 400 Tele Plus


Here's the owner's manual (link below) .

NOTE -> the DL-400 extracts the entire roll of film from the canister as soon as you close the back. Just the REVERSE of what you would expect. Then every time you take a picture, the camera rewinds the exposed (single shot) picture back into the cannister. When loading the film, YOU MUST PULL OUT ENOUGH FILM FROM THE CANNISTER TO GO ACROSS THE ENTIRE BACK OF THE CAMERA. There are 7 little notches on the botton of the cover. You won't see them until you open the back. The film MUST be extended far enough to reach the notches.

The film wont advance


remove and reinsert battery.
be sure you pulled the film all the way across the back.
be sure the door latches.
be sure camera is on.
try the rewind button, it may think it has film in it, ready to rewind.
Still no good? film advance motor may be dead. If so, it needs repair. Lucky for you, the Maxxum 50 goes for cheap on Ebay. You can get another at a good price.

How do you put the film in in a olympus superzoom 105g


Open the back, gently blow out any dust that might have gotten in there. Load film in the shade. Take the film cassette out of the plastic container and insert it with the protruding piece on the bottom into the left side of the film compartment. Gently pull the film out to the right about 3-4 inches. Try to keep the film flat across the shutter opening but Be Careful you don't touch the Shutter Blades! Feed the film under the take-up spindle and through the vertical slot and hook the film into a sprocket. Push down the shutter release button and advance the film a couple times. Close the camera back securely. You are ready to go! Good luck

Film won't advance. But does when the back is momentarily opened


Do you have fresh batteries in the camera. Batteries may be needed to set the exposure and trip the shutter. If the batteries are good, the back when closed may be jamming the film between the cassette and the body. Also make sure your fingers is not restricting the rewind knob on the left side of the camera.

When i took pictures at christmas i used fiji film in my camera and when i took to get processed they were all blank. could this have been the film but the kodak also did this can you help me


There are 2 things to check.

First: Put in a cheap film and just press the shutter while the back of the camera is open to see if the film is advancing.

Second: Try pressing the shutter while there is no film in the camera and the back is open to see if the shutters are working correctly.
