Broken rewind tab for Nikon EM 35mm SLR

I have an otherwise mint cond Nikon EM with a broken rewind tab (the external piece.) I put film in there and there is no problem threading it and running it through, but I cannot rewind it without the tab you lift up from the outside. I was trying to sell this camera, and would like to know how much it would cost to repair. Is this something I can do with a part myself or do I need someone with the right tool(s)?
Thanks in advance for any help. -Barb

If you can locate the parts, sure, it's an easy DIY. Ebay or USCamera will likely have a knob. The bad news is they are kind of pricy. 10-20 dollars for the part.

Needed: 35mm single lens reflex variable aperture, shutter speed & focus. Can b overridden to manual operation for class. What should I buy?


Just about every 35mm SLR ever made fits that description.

Three that will more than suit your needs are

This camera has been called the finest 35mm SLR ever produced, but it's probably overkill for a class:

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

Hi I need to know where I could find a film for my Akira cam 7000 the size of the film is 50mm


50mm film does not exist.

As far as I recall the Akira 7000 is a cheap plastic pseudo-SLR usually given away as a "free gift" when you order things like catalogues and it uses standard 35mm film. A similar piece of tat used to be sold as the "Olympia".

It's a dreadful camera which is worth even less than the roll of film you put into it, but fine if you want to get in on the current craze for Holga-style photography.

I dropped off several rolls of film to be developed from my nikon 35mm slr. the photos came back with an odd almost tan tint and the colors were dull and wrong. could this be a problem with the camera or...


Slide or negative film? Is the coloring wrong just on the prints? If so, it could be that they just screwed up printing. I'd take the prints back and demand a new set--or my money back.

How to open filnm compartment of old 35mm nikon


Is it an SLR model?

I am not familiar with Nikons; however, Minolta and Canon SLR film camera's film compartments are opened by lifting up on the film rewind mechanism on the top left side of the camera.

If the Nikons are designed like Minolta and Canon, there will be a small tab to push in at the bottom of the camera. This releases the film and allows it to be rewound. At the top left will be a small rewind lever that is used to do the rewind. The part of the camera that the rewind lever is attached to is pulled up to open the back of the camera.

Rewind button is stuck


It can definitely be fixed but let's try one thing before forking over few bucks to technician. Assuming it is a SLR camera, When you rewind, hold the rewind knob pushed in and try it. If you have a point and shoot, let me know which model. I'll be ready to assist when you respond either way.-James

My nikon n55 is flashing err after installing new film


It could be that your camera doesn't know it's rewound the film already. With the camera turned on, push and hold BOTH manual rewind buttons simultaneously - one near the release button ( +/- ) and the other toward the front of the camera at the lens release button. Try the release button again.

"End" can be a message for "film over" or for a film jam in the cam. Did you check for this already?

Film rewind


For some reason the camera thinks it is at the end of the roll. You could turn off auto rewind, Custom Menu #1, to 0. This issue could manifest itself in cold weather as well, film becomes too stiff causing drag tripping the auto rewind. Call Nikon Film 1-800-645-6687. The camera may need to go in for CLA.
