Problems rewinding film in lomo horizon kompakt camera

HI there, I've just bought a new Lomo HOrizon Kompakt camera and I'm having some problems. It takes pics fine, and the first time I used it everything was fine and got some great pics. Ever since though, when I've finished taking pics and am manually rewinding the film, the film gets stuck half way through rewinding. If I try too hard the film just ends up snapping. Can anyone suggest what's going wrong? I've followed the film loading instructions to the letter

SOURCE: lomo supersampler.... how do i get the film out?

on the camera you have a round loop on one side and a rectangle loop on the other side. next to the rectangle there is a narrow black slide button. press that button then open the camera. on the bottom where the film on the outside of the case is a black button that hold the film in place. slide that outward then remove the film.

SOURCE: how to rewind roll film in Lomo Action Sampler

To rewind the film on your camera you push down on the rewind handle on the top left of the camera (as viewed from behind) and turn the rewind handle clockwise until no more resistance is felt.

Once the film has been rewound, slide down the catch on the left edge of the camera body and open the door on the back of the camera.

Courtesy of alfredklomp.com you can download part one of the manual here and part two here.

If after all this, the camera is broken then it cannot usually be repaired: it's designed and built as cheaply as possible as a toy camera and is only designed to last for a few rolls of film. Spare parts are not available, but some broken parts can be adapted or fabricated from whatever is to hand to do the job.

Based upon the question you asked, my reply should have solved your problem so please take a moment to rate my answer. If the problem has not been solved then add a comment instead and I'll be happy to provide further assistance.

SOURCE: My lomo will not advance the film after taking a shot

I fixed this a couple of ways with my own LCA.

One is to stick a piece of paper in between the 2 parts of the tape-up spool (the internal and external parts) to make them a tighter fit.

Also, I often fold the leader of the film back (very close to it's end), and push it inbetween the 2 parts of the take up spool, making sure one sprocket is securely placed into the small tooth/hook on the spool. So, the film is folded around the tooth and towards the back, on the inside of the spool.

The camera takes SD cards up to 2GB (not SDHC cards). If you've been taking pictures using the camera's internal memory, you must first get rid of those pics. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions. Then, insert your new card and go through the "format" routine again to prepare the new card.

It's got ONE speed - 1/100. It's designed to use ISO100 speed, outdoors in daylight, or with flash, using sunny 16 exposre. These are incredibly basic machines similar to Holgas and Diana's. 1 or 2 f/stop choices, 1 shutter speed, maybe a flash connection.

I just bought new Lomo Fisheye2 camera. I read the instruction first before i will do anything to my camera. Once i read everything, i just follow the instruction step by step. Putting AA battery and...


If your film was TOTALLY blank then it's been bleached due to a processing error. By totally blank, I mean that there are no frame numbers or other film markings on your blank film. Otherwise, you simply have an unexposed film.

First, operate the camera with the camera back open, hold the camera up to a bright light and operate the camera as you look into the back of the lens. If you see a brief bit of light coming through as you operate the shutter then the shutter is admitting light into the camera and so you should have got some kind of an image unless you failed to correctly load the film (very common).

Unfortunately, there's no way to tell unless you try another roll of film. Once the film is loaded, turn the rewind crank gently to take up slack film and take a few pictures; each time you advance the film the rewind crank should turn a little. If it doesn't then the film has not been correctly loaded as the film leader has not engaged onto the take-up spool. If so, open the camera and re-engage the film. If it clearly has engaged, then the take-up spool is failing to rotate when the film is advanced: try taking a few shots and winding on the film with the back open. If the film is not advancing then you have a faulty Lomo. This is extremely common as it is a plastic toy camera with atrocious build quality and materials and is the FishEye is only designed for paltry ten rolls of film lifespan.

A final check for film which has not advanced through the camera is if the rewind is extremely short when the film has finished.

Low battery warning


What type of batteries did you buy?

For digital cameras, you want to use batteries with high milliamp hour (mah) rating: "2500 mah" if they are rechargeable.

If you bought regular batteries, you want to use good quality. Look for the "e2" or "better for digital equipment" type.

Does the camera have a DC power plug option? Try taking pictures with it plugged in if it does. If it still malfunctions with power right from the wall, then you bought a bad camera.

It sounds like your lens's focus element is stuck. Given the events you describe it is possible that a grain of sand has worked its way into the focus motor's gearing and jammed it up. Normally the small motor moves the focus optic in and out to achieve proper focus, if its movement is limited or completely jammed you will experience blurry pictures. The camera will have to be disassembled and the sand cleaned out to restore normal function. There are repair providers you can find online who can work on your camera.
