It sounds like the rewind button on the bottom might be stuck. Refer to page 10 of the user guide and check it with a pencil tip to make sure its not stuck in the pressed position

Why is my canon ae-1 only developing blank film


First thing I would do is sacrifice a roll of film. Load the film as you have been. Then with the back open and tension on the film (do not touch the film over the shutter, advance the film. It may be that you are putting the film on the takeup spool incorrectly. Watch how the film advances on the spool. If it is on the spool incorrectly it will disconnect then not advance. If that does not work it may be a errant takeup spool.

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 is the button on the bottom of Olympus Stylus zoom 140


No. You just rewound the film. The pictures you took are safe, but you probably 'lost' the rest of the film you did not shoot.

Camera won't work, has an E on the display


If E blinks in the exposure counter, the film is improperly loaded. Reload the film.

Film Advance Problem


ksanzo,

The take up spool is cracked at the base causing the spool to slip. The camera must be mostly disassembled to replace the spool ( if available ) . This is one of the very few weak parts in the K1000. send or take it to a camera repair shop for an estimate first. --- or--
separate the base of the spool by pushing down on the gear like wheel and if you find the small crack from the bottom of the spool film slots, very carefully put a dab of super glue on the crack. check both sides of the spool. this works about 80% of the time. however it's better to replace the spool.

Problem


You haven't specified what camera model you have, but I suspect the problem could be due to the white balance setting on the camera. Read your owners manual and check the section on adjusting the white balance. If you have it set for something opposite to the actual ambient lighting condition (ie the setting is for incandescent light bulbs, and you are shooting outdoors in sunlight, for example), then it can really throw the colour spectrum off.

be sure that nothing film inside the camera , open back side of camera by pulling spinning knob , put film spool on left side and at the right side insert the film strip on diagonal small hook, turn the spool rachet turning left side then click shutter twice while holding the spinning spool left side , then close the cover , tightened the spinning spool little bit then test shoot.
