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.

SOURCE: what if the rewinding lever doesnt rewind ?

Change the batteries under the camera. This camera is electronic. With a new battery, the camera will reset the mirror and you can **** the shutter and lower the mirror. If this does not fix the problem you may have a shutter or advance problem and the camera would have to be send off for repair. Start witht he battery, that is the fix 9 out of 10 times.

SOURCE: Powers on, wont load film, beeps constantly, Can't select a mode,

I had a similar problem today with my camera. I'm not an expert on Cannon cameras or any cameras for that matter, but this is what I did to fix the problem.

I removed the bottom cover(has 6 screws i believe) carefully sliding the cover up starting near the battery cover. Holding the camera still I checked what gears I could to make sure they were free, but one small gear that moves up and down was stuck. I applied a very small amount of force to the gear to free it, reattached the cover and all the screws, and BAM! I was back to taking pictures.

Hopes this helps.

p.s if you can't find one of the screws its under the battery cover flap :).

Camera beeps and won't advance film


Scott, Not too hard, but give it a sharp rap on a counter top, this will some time free up stuck mechanisms in cameras.

Film rewinds when loaded


Align film leader at mark, then close the camera back for prewind loading. Film rewinds as each shot is exposed. Built-in motor for automatic winding/rewinding. Film advance: Automatic. Single-frame and continuous (1 fps). Automatically rewinds film leader into cartridge when designated number of frames have been exposed (midroll rewind available).

The film won't re-wind in my Canon T70. Can I do this manually?


No. If it will not auto rewind you must in a change bag or completely dark closet open the camera remove the cartridge then manually rewind the film. All that in complete darkness. Then get the camera fixed.

I NEED A CANON COMMAND BACK 70. WHERE CAN I BUY SUCH A CAMERA COVER FOR MY SLR CANON T70 35MM SLR CAMERA


Canon has not sold those for quite a while. Your best bet is to go to Ebay, Film cameras, film camera body acessories, type in Canon Command back 70 and wait until one shows up.
If you save the search, you get an email everytime one comes up. Good luck.

Sounds like an electrical switch problem. Consult a service center or trade up to a secondhand AE-1 w/ winder or Canon G-10 digital camera.

Rewinding the film


The film will not rewind on its own. If you turn the camera over you will see a small slide switch with a small button next to it. Push the button in and slide the switch at the same time, the film should then rewind. Also the camera must be in the on mode.

Is our Canon T70 dead?


It sounds like the motor is locked up. The gears under the bottom of the camera may have gotten sluggish from dried out lubrication. You can take the bottom off to see if the gears are able to turn freely or check with a local camera repair shop.

Problems rewinding film.


Your film is already rewound (if I understood you correctly). Your camera is beeping because the film is rewound and there is no film for the camer to take the photo on since it has been rewound.
