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.

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.

When you say not releasing, do you mean you are unable to rewind the film ? Have you pressed the rewind button ?

The rewind button on my diana camera is stuck OUT - as well as that I can't rewind my film as the rewind lever is stuck - can you please help?


Take your camera to photo developer who has the dark room. They will open your camera in dark room and remove the film without any damage to it. Once film is out you can see whats actually the problem, it can be gear tooth misaligned or something.

I put the film in my camera backwards(with the tail of the film facing to the left) and i cant get it back out. when i tried pulling up on the rewinder thing part of it snapped off


If it was just the folding lever part of the rewinder which has broken off then you'll need to use a flat bladed screwdriver or the tip of a knife to lever up the rewind knob sufficiently to pull it up and open the camera.

If you've broken any more than that, then your camera is unrepairable. Spare parts are not available for your camera as it's only designed to last for six rolls of film. Even regular Lomo and Holga models are only intended to last for a maximum of twelve films.

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.

I can't wind on the film, yet i can wind it back? I haven't dropped it or anything...:/


If you can wind the film backwards but not forwards, that probably means you've reached the end of the roll. So, time to wind it backwards to rewind the film back into the canister!
