    I'm having exactly the same problem - my T70 just beeps constantly! I've tried changing the batteries and the film, but it didn't help. Anybody have any ideas?

    Same thing, T70 worked beautifully until I changed the batteries. Now it only beeps! Someone please help,

    I have the same problem with My T70 as others have described. NO LCD and for a while it just bleeped when switched on. I understand that the T70 has an internal battery that can only be changed by a service agent. This may be the problem.

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.

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.

Canon EOS 300x battery problem: it doesn't work, even with fresh batteries. The LCD battery indicator blinks as they we're dead.


First make sure the batteries are in the correct position/orientation clean both battery terminal and look down inside the battery compartment make sure the "lower" connection is clean (shinny) if not you may need to use a pencil eraser with a piece of sandpaper affixed to it to get down in there and scrub off the corrosion. Another thing and I've run into this myself on a Canon Elan IIe was the battery indicator showed new batteries as dead but the camera attempted too function so, I just used it and used it and withing a few minutes the battery indicator showed the battery state of charge more accurately.

My battery bars blink and make a sound every time i put batteries in it. it won't load the film. what's the problem?


A blinking battery bar indicates that the camera thinks the batteries are nearly discharged. If you're using fresh batteries, check and make sure that the battery contacts, both on the battery cover and down inside the camera are clean and shiny -- no corrosion. Clean them if necessary and try new batteries again. If you still have flashing battery bars, there may be something wrong in the internals.

Need the sleve that cover the battries


According to the pictures I see in the T70 manual, there is no sleeve required. It shows two AA batteries in the battery compartment, but no sleeve. Try just placing the batteries (properly oriented) into the well and closing the cover, and see if the camera powers on OK. You should be fine using it that way.

Canon T70 not taking photos!?!? Help


Oops my bad.

It could be a jammed shutter. If you take the lens out and the film out. Take a few pictures and see if the shutter moves. If there is no movement I would take it into a camera shop and take a look at it. Unless the shutter spring is busted, it could be an easy fix.

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.
