Your only fix for this is to replace the camera. The faults you describe indicate a main circuit board failure and it's simply not economic to repair.

The spare boards are long discontinued (the camera is nearly thirty years old) and you can buy a replacement T70 body realistically for between £5 and £20 on auction websites which is far less than the repair costs if you were lucky enough to find a spare board. In reality, the camera is usually a free item attached to whatever lens it comes with (a typical recent example is item number 110487194549 .

As they're effectively worthless, they do also turn up on FreeCycle occasionally.

Sorry that I cannot offer you a quick fix, but hopefully I've saved you the time and worthless expense of repairing your camera. All that I ask in return is that you return the favour by rating my answer.

All pictures have blue tint with T70 35mm SLR


Silly question, is there a filter over the lens? Some folks when using use daylight film in tungsten lighting will use a blue filter. Is the film expired past a few years? If those are all no, then it may be your lab, my suggestion is to contact them. With film there is little to go wrong, you shoot they develop. The magic occurs during developing and printing.

The film won't re-wind in my Canon T70. Can I do this manually?


No. If it will not auto rewind you must in a change bag or completely dark closet open the camera remove the cartridge then manually rewind the film. All that in complete darkness. Then get the camera fixed.

I NEED A CANON COMMAND BACK 70. WHERE CAN I BUY SUCH A CAMERA COVER FOR MY SLR CANON T70 35MM SLR CAMERA


Canon has not sold those for quite a while. Your best bet is to go to Ebay, Film cameras, film camera body acessories, type in Canon Command back 70 and wait until one shows up.
If you save the search, you get an email everytime one comes up. Good luck.

Canon t70


Honestly, I just got a T70 on ebay for $15. Sounds like it's time to move on. I had an AE-1 for over 10 years but it just wasn't working and one has to weigh the cost of repair, the cost to replace it or upgrade to a modest digital camera.

Canon T70 not taking photos!?!? Help


Oops my bad.

It could be a jammed shutter. If you take the lens out and the film out. Take a few pictures and see if the shutter moves. If there is no movement I would take it into a camera shop and take a look at it. Unless the shutter spring is busted, it could be an easy fix.

Is our Canon T70 dead?


It sounds like the motor is locked up. The gears under the bottom of the camera may have gotten sluggish from dried out lubrication. You can take the bottom off to see if the gears are able to turn freely or check with a local camera repair shop.

It sounds like your camera is having problems advancing your film, which could mean it is jammed inside the camera. The other thing you should check is to see if the battery is weak & doesn't have enough power to advance the film (and thus the beeping). If it is not the battery, then go in a darkroom (completely dark) and take out the film (if you're unable to rewind it inside the camera). Look at the transport rollers (in the back for the camera) and make sure they're clean (sometimes film chips get jammed in there) Let me know if this helps you. Thanks.
