Canon T70 not taking photos!?!? Help

I have a Canon T70 and I have downloaded the manual to it, unfortunatly that didn't help my problem.. I can get the camera to change Modes, Manual/Automatic and ISO but when I push the shutter button down to take the photo nothing happens... Well it does show meter readings and a P blinking through the eye finder... Can you help...
Thanks

    I didn't plug in anything- It is an old film camera- I just can figure out why the camera will advance film when I put new film in it and it will rewind fine- I just can't get the shutter to take a photo- It will like I said before show me the meter readings and blink P so I know that it is working I just can't figure out what I'm doing wronge or if it is Broke...

    Thanks

    I took off the lens and removed film then tried to push the button down to take a photo and still no better results... What is this worth as is? I am planning on getting rid of it anyway--- Other than this the camera looks and sounds great---

The T70 is a great film camera but it sounds like the electromagnet on magnetic shutter curtain release has failed. You can find another T70 body in excellent condition pretty low price on ebay. I think the repair cost would be double of a used body

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.

I've taken many photos so far with my Canon T70 but have no idea how many and when to stop.. i'm not counting the number of photos i've taken, haven't heard any beeping and don't know...


The maximum number of shots possible is 24 or 36 depending on the film length, although sometimes you can squeeze an extra one out of a film. If the film loaded correctly you will get a frame counter in the LCD. If the film did not load correctly, then you have not taken any photos as the film is still in the canister and unexposed.

Take the camera to a totally dark room (and I do mean absolutely pitch black) and open the camera. if you can feel the film canister and just the short leader then it didn't load and you can turn on the lights and try loading again. if there is just the canister and no film sticking out, then the film has rewound and you can turn the lights on and send the film for developing to see if the camera worked. If you feel film going from the canister right across to the take-up spool, then your film is still being used and you should close the back of the camera before turning on the lights again. The latter does not necessarily mean that your camera is OK though as it should be showing frame numbers, but it may be usable still. If after a few more shots the camera is still behaving just the same then it's got a fault.

A faulty t70 is really not worth repairing. It's complex, spares are mostly unavailable, and they are almost worthless even in perfect condition. Any of the earlier non-t-series Canon FD-mount bodies are far better and a lot more fixable. They are also usually near worthless and can be picked up free or very cheaply, but as they have less to go wrong and were designed with repairs in mind then many common faults can be fixed.

I have a DSC-T70. If I were to take a picture this way: http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e96/Gamfrk924/landscape1.jpg then when I view my image, the picture would be rotated like this...


1. Go to Menu items

As seen in the picture above, there is a setting there to Rotate your still images.
3. Rotate your images and Save.

Have Fun!

Sony DSC T70 only holds 33 photos with a 1GB memory card... WHY?


There's probably something else taking up a ton of space on that memory card. Format it with the camera if you aren't worried about losing data. Otherwise, plug it into a computer with a memory card reader and see what's taking up the space.
