A blinking battery bar indicates that the camera thinks the batteries are nearly discharged. If you're using fresh batteries, check and make sure that the battery contacts, both on the battery cover and down inside the camera are clean and shiny -- no corrosion. Clean them if necessary and try new batteries again. If you still have flashing battery bars, there may be something wrong in the internals.

The new roll of film winds into the right spool upon closing back cover // brand new batteries displays 1/2 and ERR appears on led panel


Is the ERR blinking, and is there an additional blinking E on the display? If so, the film is not loaded properly.
The film is supposed to advance all the way to the take-up spool upon loading. The camera then "rewinds" one frame at a time as you take pictures. This way the camera knows exactly how many shots are left on the roll. Also, if the back is accidentally opened, the shots already taken are already in the can and won't be ruined.
If you need a manual, you may download a copy here.
Try cleaning the battery contacts and see whether the battery reads full with no film in the camera.
If problems persists, feel free to reply to this post and give any additional details.

Canon EOS 300x battery problem: it doesn't work, even with fresh batteries. The LCD battery indicator blinks as they we're dead.


First make sure the batteries are in the correct position/orientation clean both battery terminal and look down inside the battery compartment make sure the "lower" connection is clean (shinny) if not you may need to use a pencil eraser with a piece of sandpaper affixed to it to get down in there and scrub off the corrosion. Another thing and I've run into this myself on a Canon Elan IIe was the battery indicator showed new batteries as dead but the camera attempted too function so, I just used it and used it and withing a few minutes the battery indicator showed the battery state of charge more accurately.

I forgot how to load the film


Battery contacts corroded? If so add a few drops of rubbing alcohol on the solder joints and the contacts. Let dry over night and try again with fresh batteries

Fuji 35mm Camera (Model DL-400)

remove the battery and check that it is good. replace battery and open back door, close the door and it should run the motor / transport. if so, load film up to the drive sprocket being sure film will catch on the sprocket.
or move the latch holding back cover, and open the door fully. check the pressure plate on the door, gently pull the plate up a little to increase pressure on the film. bring the holding lever out toward the latch and close the door to lock the lever back to position.

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.

My minolta sightseen camera wont take pictures?


The blinking zero would indicate that the film has not loaded but the cartridge is in place. The camera won't do anything when this occurs. Try opening the film door and load the roll again

Instructions


There are two conditions under which a blinking "H" will appear in the
LCD panel: (1) when the film has been loaded incorrectly or (2) when the
camera's self-test process detects an internal malfunction. If a
blinking "H" indication appears, perform the following operations in
attempt to resolve the situation:

1. Rewind and remove the film using the rewind button, then remove the
battery to clear the memory.

2. Clean the contacts at the base of the battery compartment with a
clean pencil eraser to ensure proper contact between the camera and
battery.

3. Replace the battery, power the camera back up1.gif and operate it as if
it had film loaded, pressing the shutter release.

Camera inoperable


According to the manual found here:
http://www.pentaximaging.com/files/manual/ZX50.pdf

It says, "If the film is not loaded properly, 'E' on the LCD panel blinks, indicating that the film is not loaded properly. Open the back cover and load the film once again."
