Kiev 60 Film Feed Problems

I have a Kiev 60 camers which works fine except for one problem. The film does not completely advance. There seems to be an overlap of about 3/16 of an inch on each picture. I can upload a pic to show what I mean if need be. Is there some place where I could find repair manuals online to see what might be causing this? Or is this a common problem with Kiev 60s? Does it sound like an expensive repair? Thanks, Dennis Myhand

Actually, this is a frame spacing problem, which is caused by the difference in the thickness of the backing paper of film which is available in Russia as opposed to what is available to us in the United States. Evidently the Russian film backing paper is thicker, therefore it travels farther when the winding lever is cranked. I found the following site which will show you how to test your Kiev 60 to see if you need to Kalibrate the frame spacing in your Kiev.

After making the determination that your Kiev needs to be Kalibrated, go to this site:

which will show nice, clear, beautifully detailed images and clearly written instructions to allow you to get into your Kiev. Follow the instructions and save yourself some money!!!!!

Pentax ME super advance film doesn't get caught


This is a known fault with this retro model, I'm afraid - over time, the plastic gears get worn, and eventually fail. Solutions are mentioned on the Pentax Forums.

Have you rewound the film? If you rewind the file completely and pull out the rewind know, it will pop the back open . . . and can remove the film cassette. While the back is still open, complete the cycle on the winding crank. The winding crank should return to "Normal" arter you complete the winding cycle. When you close the back, everything should go back to normal.

This camera is somewhere between fifteen and thirty years old. It is highly unlikely that spares would be available, and it would be extremely expensive to have it repaired in any case, most artificers familiar with the internal layout having probably retired years ago. Maybe the camera should be retired too ?

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.

Searching for a polarizing filter for a nikon n-60, 52mm, yes I'm still using film cameras. Question; are filters for film and digital camers the same?


First of all, yes, the filters work for both film and digital cameras. Both amazon.com and bhphoto.com are good sources for filters. A good polarizing filter is Sunpack...good price, great value.

Film advance


In most film cameras, a battery is not necessary to manual advance film using the lever. Your Canon AV-1 is no exception. I have owned two cameras from the same group, the AE-1 and the Canon A-1. Neither required a battery for manual film advance.

Make sure the ring around the shutter release button is set to "A", otherwise the shutter won't release and the film lever won't work correctly. If the ring shows an "L", the shutter release is locked.

Here's a graphic of the batteries that can be used in your AV-1:

Film doesn't develop


check your camer without film:

1). open the back, use different combinations of film speeds, shutter speeds and apartures. if you can see light coming in from the lens, no matter how little light and how fast.
2). check that film advances or not. if you camera detects film and loads automatically, insert any expired film cassette, or badly developed film and roll it back into cassette.
3). send it for service if either one or both gives you an answer of "N".

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.
