The film ripped from the cassette on a contax rts when i was manually rewinding it. is there any way to salvage this at home? also, what is the best way to remove the film from the camera, without damaging...


before opening the camera, press the film rewind release button and ensure that the portion of film which remains attached to the cassette has been totally rewound. Next, with the camera in total darkness, open the camera back and remove the film cassette. Grab a firm hold of the loose end of the torn film and tape it to a piece of wooden dowelling and then turn the dowelling so that the film pulls out and winds onto it. Once the film has disengaged from the camera, place the dowelling with the film into a totally light-proof container: an old but spotlessly clean metal tin, such as a custard powder, cornflour or even a paint tin will do the job. Don't use a plastic lidded tin as the lid is always slightly translucent and will fog the film. When the tin lid has been firmly closed with the film inside, you can take the tin to a specialist processor and get both film portions developed.

Note that specialist handling of this type regarding development is not cheap. You cannot use a regular postal processor or minilab as their machinery cannot handle damaged film, only a professional lab (or a well-equipped friend) can individually process your film. Bear the cost in mind, as it's only worth doing if you are sure that there are valuable/irreplaceable images on the film.

Also note that by pressing the rewind button before pulling out the film, you are largely using the camera as intended so will not damage it. Afterwards, check the camera thoroughly and clean out any broken film fragments.Torn film is sometimes down to a manufacturing defect in the film, or due to the rewind button popping out during rewinding, or rewinding much too fast or due to excessive resistance in the take-up mechanism as the film is rewound; the latter usually indicates that the camera is overdue for a professional CLA (Clean, Lubricate, Adjust) service. The fault may commonly be due to a combination of those factors.

Whenever I touch the operating button to meter, the "under-range LED" will not stop blinking. No shutter speeds illuminate, not even the one I have the shutter set to. The only LED's that...


Be sure your mode dial is not in the auto position. If it is, the camera will only function with the lense also locked to the auto position, which will either be the lowest aperture (highest number) or sometimes an "A" setting separate from the normal aperture settings. That's generally what this type of indication means on program/manual models - that you're trying to use manual settings, when the camera is set up for auto program exposure.

My battery bars blink and make a sound every time i put batteries in it. it won't load the film. what's the problem?


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.

Rewinding on a minolta 7000


i used to do this on an old Kyocera, and somehow looking at the 7000 diagram, they have the same, almost the same design.
take the camera to somewhere dark and clean (like dust free and all) perhaps your darkroom if you have one, bring a pair os scissor and a film container (for worst cases that the film is torn). clean your hands as well.

Check the bottom of the camera for a small button that disengages the motor gear (film release button). now open the film door then use a fingers to carefully pull the film evenly, you may feel like the film is being stuck, and if in case it did not move, check if you have a film release button on the bottom of the camera (usually place right below the film). as you do this feel the track of the film and check for damages that will indicate that the film has been torn because it is not loaded correctly or the motorhead malfunctioned.

now just wind the film back to the canister unless the track is torn off (note to leave the film leader out), once it is out, get the film developed right away.
now if the film track is torn cut it off then place it in the container, then have this handed to the developer and tell them that this is an open film, since it can be developed, partially though, it depends on the cut.

OR better off, you can bring your camera to the developer then tell then the film is broken inside and they will do all these for you.

good luck.

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."

Unable to rewind film in camera


Well, I used to work at a camera store and actually encountered this a number of times with Minolta's. I can't remember if the motors wore out or if the film slipped or tore at the track. The solution: take the camera into a darkroom or pitch black environment and remove the film by hand. Bring a pair of scissors and a black film container just in case the film tears or the track is torn. Obviously be careful to ensure no light is available if you can't access a darkroom. Check the bottom of the camera for a small button that disengages the motor gear (some newer models may not have this)(you may have to hold it in). Open the film door and with clean hands, use your index fingers and thumbs carefully on the tracks only and pull evenly. You may feel some resistance from the motor and hear the motor but if it won't budge check again if the bottom of the camera has a film release. As you do this feel for torn areas in the track which may indicate a motor malfunction or improperly loaded film. Now just wind the film back into the canister unless the track is torn. You may want to leave the leader out, and you should probably have the film developed right away for a list of reasons. If the track is torn, cut it off at the canister and touching only the edges roll it up and put it inside the plastic film container. Mark it "open film", or Open only in darkroom etc. and mention it to your developer. Alternately you can just hand over your camera to your developer who will do all of this for you...
