The lever to rewind the finished roll of film broke off. How do I fix it? Is there another way of getting the film out without exposing it?

Advance film lever not working


If there's film in the camera it could have reached the end of the roll and you were unaware or it didn't indicate it. Try to rewind the film and use the rewind button on the bottom of the camera. Try pushing the button in anyway and advancing the wind lever. if this isn't the problem then the internal gear is jammed or broken and the camera needs service.

Advance lever and shutter stuck how do I fix it


Is there film in the camera? If so it may be at the end of the roll and thus when advancing the film it jammed. Rewind the film then see if the lever and shutter operate. If not then a CLA is needed.

Do i need to rewind film after taking a picture on my diana f+ ??


If you are using 120 film (medium format) you only need to advance the film as far as possible. Then remove the film from the camera and wrap the excess paper around the roll and seal.

When you finish all the pictures on the roll of 35mm film you will need to rewind the film completely before exposing it to light. You can do this by taking the camera in a pitch dark room, removing the film and turning the knob on the top of the film roll until the film has been completely wound back into the the roll.

After i've finished my photographic film (a 36 exposure rolls by Tokina), when I want to rewind it (counterclockwise direction), the lever starts to unscrew (because it is counterclockwise). What can i do...


on my nikons you crank it in a clockwise direction when looking down onto the top of the camera. yes, if you turn it the other way the handle on top will unscrew from the shaft. make sure you have pushed the small button on the bottom of the camera, it is the film rewind release, it allows the wind mechanism to go backwards to unload the film

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.

How do u get the camera 2 rewind


Usually the automatic rewind starts when the film roll has come to the end. You can rewind also before that by a rewinding button you'll find usually somewhere in the camera body.

To rewind manually, press the film release button (consult the manual if you don't find it) and use the rewinding lever to rewind the film. See this for inspiration: http://www.ehow.com/how_2028878_film-mm-manual-slr-camera.html

I may have loaded film roll that has already been taken?


Usually when you finish exposing a roll of film, you rewind it until you are sure it is all wound into the cassette. There is a change in the sound as the end of the roll leaves the camera. An exposed roll would have no film sticking out of the cassette. A new unexposed roll will have a bit of film sticking out of the cassette to pull across the ack to the take up roll.

Film advance lever and shutter release button are "stuck"


No, it is not the battery. My guess is that the film leader did not stay in the take-up spool and is now bunched up around it. Try rewinding the film carefully as you normally would but remember that you are only rewinding a small portion of the length. You can even just open the film door and start over. You will only loose 3 or 4 frames on the roll.
