I found a notice put out by Nikon, there is a mechanical problem with the Auto focus. U can google it and there is a form to download and print to send in with your camera. The service is free to fix it since it is a manufacturer's defect.

My camera will begin to turn on but the flash settings won'


is it the auto film load feature on this camera doing this ??? it maybe the type of film u use , most auto loads are not to forgiving on the different types of film , I had this problem as I still use a film camera a lot for infrared photos (digitals too expensive ) and have found that its real picky on whos film I use to weather it works or not , as on some brands of film it just goes on and on and never stops , the only way I can save it from being ruined is to tell it to rewind , it then sucks all the film back into holder and I try it again ,sometimes works sometimes no

Sometimes, when we start the carmera and want to take a photo and press the button to take one, a small red light starts to shine. we didn't configure anything on the settings. this is really anoying


Sounds like a feature that comes on when using flash. The light comes on so in low light you can see and focus on what you are trying to photograph. Then we shutter button is depressed all the way the flash goes and picture is taken. Try turning off flash function.

My 35mm film won't load. It keeps rewinding


Solution: Repair or replace auto-rewind system.
Cause: The built in auto-rewind system that supposed to work when film is finished but because it is faulty it receives wrong signal when film is lloaded. So the camera thinks the film is at the end of the roll.
Possible cost: $65-$75

Is there a way to turn off the flash?


The flash is automatic, you cannot control the flash. But you can put some black tape over the flash if you really don't want flash. Remember though, if the camera meter decides flash is needed, then your pictures could turn out dark/underexposed by covering the flash.

The manual can be found here: http://www.olympus-europa.com/consumer/208_manuals.cfm?prodID=P_N1246352

The manual says use 100, 200 or 400 iso films.

Maybe try high iso film like 800 iso or 1600 iso, best to try this out ahead of time to make sure you are satisfied with the results. The high iso films need less light so should perform better without flash, but the camera may not be able to rate these films correctly, trial and error is definitely required.

35mm manual SLR keeps taking photos even though it must be the end of the film?


You probably didn't get the film leader caught by the takeup spool - they might be no pictures taken at all. Go into a dark room and open the back, you can feel if the film is loaded.

I can't get my Pentax Z50P film camera to automatically focus.


Remove the lens and clean the contacts between the body and the lens with a pencil eraser. Make sure the camera is on Autofocus mode. If these don't solve the problem, take it to an authorized service center.

Polaroid 690 slr camera will not take photographs.


Have you tried a new filmpack. Reason for asking is if you have an old filmpack, since the batteries are stored in each filmpack, sometimes expired or old filmpacks have been sitting around and lose some of their power. This makes the battery dead or low voltage that can drive all the shutters and lens focus, but fail to extract the film after exposure. Also check your rollers in front that they move and the gear on the side for wear. Another test is to set the flash on and time how long it takes for the flash to get ready. Anything over one minute is too long and I would replace the filmpack with a newer one. BTW: Most 600 filmpacks are old and stored for long periods.

F--


Unlike other cameras that start at frame #1 after loading and count up as the film is used, the N55 advance the film to the last frame during the loading process. When loading is complete, the frame counter stops at the number of available frames on the roll (usually 24 or 36) and counts down as photos are taken. I know it sounds backwards but it actually makes a lot of sense to engineer it this way. After the last photo is taken (displays 1 on the counter), the camera automatically winds the end of the film into the cassette and the counter shows a blinking E. I am assuming that that is what is being displayed and not a blinking F. it it is an F, perhaps there is a problem with the LCD display? If so, it probably isn't worth having it repaired.
