I don't know how to roll up the film after it's done. I ruined the last one. How do I roll up the film?


There is a crank located on the top of the camera. Some Lomo's Ive seen have it located on the left, but it will always be on the side of the camera where you placed the film. Many cameras will also have arrows indicating what direction to turn it in order to wind the film back in. If there are no arrows, place your ruined roll of film (or a new roll of film) into the camera, and try winding it with the back open (if you're using a new roll of film, don't roll it all the way in, or you'll waste another roll).
If there is no crank, or it is broken, you can always unload your camera in perfect darkness (no red lights), and wind it back into the canister by hand.

Blank roll of film


Two possible problems:

1. Film did not wind on. 2. Shutter not opening.

Easy to test with camera back open. Load a film and fire the shutter a few times each time with winding on, to see if film is winding correctly, at the same time you should be able notice if the shutters are firing, eight of them in succession makes a bit of noise.

Cant wind up film!?


You haven't stated whether you activated the rewind knob before trying to rewind the film. Unless you do so, the rewind crank will not work.

The rewind knob is to the left of the lens mount (as viewed from the front of the camera), above the self timer lever and is marked with a letter "R". Turn it until the bar is horizontal and you should then be able to rewind.

if this has fixed your problem then please take a moment to rate my answer. If it has not done so, then please add a comment instead and I'll come back with additional options for you when I'm next online.

I can't wind on the film, yet i can wind it back? I haven't dropped it or anything...:/


If you can wind the film backwards but not forwards, that probably means you've reached the end of the roll. So, time to wind it backwards to rewind the film back into the canister!

Recently after putting the film in and taking pics I take it for developement and no pics come out Do you think the film is not advancing properly Maybe I didn't get the new film far enough on the spool to...


Probably.  Most cameras give you a mark to which you pul out the film leader.  
If your cam is one of the power load/wind/rewind models then you must pull the leader right up to the mark
If is one of the older ones with an advance lever, then you can watch the rewind crank to see if it revolves when you wind on.  If it does not, then you have not engaged the film in the take-up spool properly.

My Mamiya RB67 triggers and shutter lease lever works but film advance lever doesn't move. Trigger button fired several times but film advance still showing 1.


This is not the best solution as it indicates a faulty film back. The film should advance without resorting to activating the film-wind release lever. That is only for intentionally advancing a partially exposed roll of film. Make sure the multi-exposure lever is not engaged and that the counter does advance and the red mark disappears as you advance to an unexposed frame.

I took a roll of pictures but the film came out blank. What did I do wrong? or what could be wrong w/the camera?


Please say what model of camera you're using.

You may not have loaded the film properly so that it wasn't wound forward after each exposure. Sometimes the film leader isn't picked up by the wind-on mechanism. Check the frame indicator moves as you wind the film on. Also operate the shutter without film and with the back open. You should see a flash of light through the lens if the shutter operates.

Minolta X300 camera


Hello

First thing to check with this is are we are talking about the correct part of the camera, the rewind lever on this model is on the left hand side (as you look through the camera), make sure you have raised the rewind crank arm (small plastic arm) out of the central knob, then looking on the bottom of the camera you should find a recess with a chrome button in it, push this button in, it releases the wind on mechanism, you should now be able to rewind the film using the crank, make sure you follow the direction of the arrow on the arm otherwise you will wind the film into the canister backwards, this will make it very stiff to wind and maybe scratch the film, plus you processor will not like you for this either.

Wind / shutter issue (2nd try to post)


It sounds like there is a problem with the frame counter in the film back itself. Try operating the camera with the back removed and on multi-exp to check the shutter functions.

Unexpected Rewinding


Could you be putting too much film onto the wind spool? Take the end of the film leader no farther than the RED/ORANGE marker at the spool. Too much film will cause it to bind and start rewinding.
