Film rewinds when loaded


Align film leader at mark, then close the camera back for prewind loading. Film rewinds as each shot is exposed. Built-in motor for automatic winding/rewinding. Film advance: Automatic. Single-frame and continuous (1 fps). Automatically rewinds film leader into cartridge when designated number of frames have been exposed (midroll rewind available).

Minolta Maxxum 400si is locked up


link to your manual, it tells us that we have a winding motor problem, I would do as you have done, so I would ensure that batterys are in great shape, the only other thing I could suggest is to try to turn the winding motor by hand in case it is just locked up. Failing that I presume the motor has died and needs replacement.

The film did not automatically rewind after the last shot. How do I get the film to reqidn without exposing it and losing pictures.


You'll have to do it manually. Take the camera into a totally dark and lightproof room: if you can see anything at all in the darkness then it's not dark enough.

Open the camera back and remove the film can. Wearing clean lint free gloves, gently but firmly pull on the film to slowly unwind it from the take up spool, as you do so turn the spigot on the film can to wind it back in.

Note that on a manual wind camera, you would have been able to press a rewind button to disengage the film take up sprocket gears, but on your you can't. If the film seems at risk of tearing then try pulling it out at a right angle to the back of the camera. This ensures that you're not pulling it back over the sprockets and it should then come out quite easily. If your film is likely to contain important and irreplaceable images then you may wish to buy 12 or 24 exposure cheap film and borrow another 35mm camera to practice the method I've recommended in the light where you can see what you're doing.

Wind film?


Behind the LCD screen on the back of the camera, is a a gray button marked "R", and a gray slide switch to the immediate left of that.

Press and hold the R button, while sliding the switch to the left, this can be easily done with one thumb. the display will blink 0 and the motor will stop when rewinding is complete.

Film loading problem Minolta Maxxum 430SI RZ


not solution, but a suggestion, something to look for/try.
i think it is trying to tighten it and take up the slack in the spool. there might be little red dots or something like that on the inside when you open it up. you are supposed to have the film go to a certain spot before you close it. normally, the film is sticking out the right length, but you might have to pull it out extra first. you might also have to tuck the end of the film behind a roller or in front of a roller before you close it. look for really tiny diagrams inside the camera, or maybe just tiny arrows indicating which way the film is supposed to wind. good luck with your class!

N75 will not load film


Quick solution: force a manual rewind.
1. Remove film
2. Close camera back.
3. With the power turned on, press the two rewind buttons together. They are marked in red.
4. The camera will make a rewind sound and will stop after about 2 seconds.
5. DO NOT fire the shutter yet.
6. Put the mode on Manual and select a fast shutter speed like 1/90 sec. Any aperture will do.
7. Load the film correctly as given in the user's manual.
8. As you close the camera back, the film will prewind to the end of roll. At the end of the roll pre-wind the LCD will show you the total number of frames available.
9. Select any shooting mode.
10. Go on and take pictures.

Hope this helps
