Question about Lomo Kompakt Automat 35mm Point and Shoot 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

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.

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.

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.
