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!

SOURCE: cant wind up film!?

You haven't stated whether you activated the rewind knob before trying to rewind the film. Unless you do so, the rewind crank will not work.

The rewind knob is to the left of the lens mount (as viewed from the front of the camera), above the self timer lever and is marked with a letter "R". Turn it until the bar is horizontal and you should then be able to rewind.

if this has fixed your problem then please take a moment to rate my answer. If it has not done so, then please add a comment instead and I'll come back with additional options for you when I'm next online.

I have a Pentax ME super and the film door will close when there is no film but when i load it with film its not closing properly?


I really loved your camera type though it was 35 years ago I had one. I envy you.

Not sure why you should be having trouble unless you have a bad film. Have you tried more than one film?

If the film cassette has dropped in properly and is laying flat, the film rewind has to be raised, I think, to allow that and the sprocket holes in the film are properly engaged with the sprockets and the free end of the film engaged onto the film wind-on reel then everything should be well below the door aperture.

I would wind on maybe a frame and fire the shutter prior to closing the film door just to observe everything moving as it should and then close the door.
The last quarter inch the door must be closed against the pressure of a spring but if the little spring-loaded device behind the door which is intended to keep the film perfectly flat against the camera body is working correctly only a light pressure will be needed to compress those springs and close the door.
Perhaps something is wrong there?

I don't remember any problems closing the film door.
I hope this helps but if it doesn't please come back again and describe your actions and the feel of the door more fully.

The film did not automatically rewind after the last shot. How do I get the film to reqidn without exposing it and losing pictures.


You'll have to do it manually. Take the camera into a totally dark and lightproof room: if you can see anything at all in the darkness then it's not dark enough.

Open the camera back and remove the film can. Wearing clean lint free gloves, gently but firmly pull on the film to slowly unwind it from the take up spool, as you do so turn the spigot on the film can to wind it back in.

Note that on a manual wind camera, you would have been able to press a rewind button to disengage the film take up sprocket gears, but on your you can't. If the film seems at risk of tearing then try pulling it out at a right angle to the back of the camera. This ensures that you're not pulling it back over the sprockets and it should then come out quite easily. If your film is likely to contain important and irreplaceable images then you may wish to buy 12 or 24 exposure cheap film and borrow another 35mm camera to practice the method I've recommended in the light where you can see what you're doing.

The film advance lever is stuck on my Minolta Hi-Matic C. I bought this at a thrift store today to see if it worked. The film advance lever worked fine for a while and then got stuck. Put a new battery...


Have you rewound the film? If you rewind the file completely and pull out the rewind know, it will pop the back open . . . and can remove the film cassette. While the back is still open, complete the cycle on the winding crank. The winding crank should return to "Normal" arter you complete the winding cycle. When you close the back, everything should go back to normal.

I used my camera for 17-20 shots but then layed it aside and haven't used it again until now. Will the film be harmed? It's been over a year. That's probably a silly question but can I...


Hi Barbara - The film is actually a digital data file in a digital camera so your 17-20 photos should still be fine on the camera. Data files don't go bad with time.

You can just take up shooting from where you left off originally, just make sure the batteries are fresh and off you go.

Good Luck and happy shooting,

I don't know how to roll up the film after it's done. I ruined the last one. How do I roll up the film?


There is a crank located on the top of the camera. Some Lomo's Ive seen have it located on the left, but it will always be on the side of the camera where you placed the film. Many cameras will also have arrows indicating what direction to turn it in order to wind the film back in. If there are no arrows, place your ruined roll of film (or a new roll of film) into the camera, and try winding it with the back open (if you're using a new roll of film, don't roll it all the way in, or you'll waste another roll).
If there is no crank, or it is broken, you can always unload your camera in perfect darkness (no red lights), and wind it back into the canister by hand.

Blank roll of film


Two possible problems:

1. Film did not wind on. 2. Shutter not opening.

Easy to test with camera back open. Load a film and fire the shutter a few times each time with winding on, to see if film is winding correctly, at the same time you should be able notice if the shutters are firing, eight of them in succession makes a bit of noise.

Trying to get the film removed and new film put in


to rewind the film back into the tin look underneath the camera you will see a button, press this, it will disengage the winding mechanism, looking on top of the camera to the left you see a knob. flip out the handle and start to turn this clockwise until you hear a click and the turning become a little easier. if it is hard to turn, ensure the button undeneath is still pushed in. once the film is wound back, lift this knob this should open the back door and of the camera and release the spent film can.

take your new film and take it out if its platic container. place the old film in the same container for safe keeping til it goes to processing.

place the new film into the camera on the left side with the brown tab of the film laying over the shutter window in the middle.
press in the winder knob to help hold the film container in place.
pull out the end of the film and guide it over the two wheels with teeth ensureing that the teeth fit into the perferation holes in the film.
slide the film across the camera to the roller on the oposite side. slightly wind the camera on help guide the film tab into the slot
once in the slot slowly wind the camera on ensuring that the film is running smoothly over the shutter gate.
now close the back of the camera which should click to lock.
now wind on the film until the winder leaver stops
check the ASA or IOS rating of your film from the box it came in.
and ensure this setting is correct on the setting wheel on the right.
if your camera has automatic film recognition then this is not necessary.
you are now ready to start taking pictures again.

I dont know how to load my Nikon 35mm camera. I need instructions


Pull up the film rewind knob to open the back.

Drop the cartridge into the well on the left and, while rotating the rewind knob, push it back down to secure the cartridge.

Pull the leader across and insert it into any of the slots in the takeup spool.

Make sure the film perforations engage the sprocket teeth.

Alternately wind the film lever and press the shutter button until the perforations on both edges of the film engage the sprocket teeth.

Close the camera back, making sure it latches.

Take up the film slack by rotating the rewind knob in the direction of the arrow until you feel resistance.

Make blank exposures until the counter shows "1".

There's a fuller, illustrated set of instructions in the manual, which you can download from http://www.butkus.org/chinon/nikon.htm
