    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 :).

I need help loading film on to a Canon AZ-2900R Automatic


It is not possible for me to find a manual, but the camera looks like my my EOS5oo (film camera, not the digital one)
I still have some film camera's from Canon and the way to put in the film is the same in almost every one, so I give it a try. Make sure you have the correct batteries in the camera. You can check by turning the mode dial to any position other than L and look on the display. If the battery symbol is flashing, it is too low. Turn the mode dial to the L. Open the camera, then put the roll in the left hand space and while holding the spool in place pull out enough film (one to 2 inch) to reach the orange point on the right hand side. Then close the camera.
If you pulled out more film, please put it back in the spool by turning the knob.
As soon as the camera is closed it will spool the film to the starting point. A little spool symbol and the ISO will be visible on the display. When the spool is blinking something went wrong and you have to insert again.
I'm not sure if your camera detects the correct ISO, but if not you have to correct that your self. I don't know how to do that.
I think there is a category for analog cameras too. This one was in digital cameras. Success

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.

When i load the film in the back of the camera it blinks "E" and "o _ _" and doesn't move automatically to the first frame


Blinking 'E' means no film loaded. 'o_ _' shows that the film is loading. Apparently the film has not gone to the receiving spool. Pull the film all the way over to the other side when loading the film and make sure it catches the spool.

What does A ERR mean?


There are several situations when this message happens and the camera locks up, and almost none of them has anything to do with the cause stated in the camera manual: film DX coding error. (If it is truly a DX-coding error, manually setting the ISO speed of the film should solve the problem. This could happen in cold weather.) Scenario One: when using Alkaline batteries and the batteries are almost exhausted, and yet one continues to shoot. The battery may not have enough power to complete the shutter firing operation (which usually includes: mirror up, close down diaphragm, shutter fire, mirror down, open diaphragm, advance film, and charge the shutter for next frame). The camera could be lock up in the middle of the operation, left with a dimmed viewfinder. Usually an indication appears quite early if one pays attention: when the batteries are almost exhausted, the film advance becomes noticeably slow. In normal situation film advance is very fast and one cannot distinguish it from other noise such as mirror flipping. When the batteries almost exhausted, the film-advance could take almost 1 second, and the noise of film advancing has been mistakenly identified by some as "beep". I think those is the result of over-adjustment for the Premature Battery Indication problem. This scenario is particular to using alkaline batteries, due to the peculiar behavior of the alkaline battery: even when its power is almost exhausted, it still has a pretty high voltage. Solution: replace the batteries and fire the shutter once should solve the problem. I am pretty sure this is normal, since it happened to me several times, and I once deliberately repeated this happening. Scenario Two: At the end of a roll, when the remaining film is too short for one more frame but long enough to fool the camera, the camera could end up with "Err" message. Solution: rewind the film and load with the new one, and possibly fire the shutter once could solve the problem. (This has never happened to me, but summarized from other’s reports.) Scenario Three: I've heard of two reports: happened in the middle of a roll, with sufficient battery power. I have no idea what’s going on. (Could be really a DX-coding problem, which does not necessarily occur just at the beginning of a roll.) Solution: probably should send the camera in for a check. (Also, both reports of this problem occurs while using Kodachrome films.)
