I have recently just took a roll of film out of my camera. It is a Asahi pentax K1000. I opened up the back panel to take out my film and the panel closed without any new film being put in. Now the rewind...


Hi there,

Try holding the camera upside down to see if it slides back into place. If that doesn't work, imagine that there is a film in there and wind it back like you would to take the film out, this may put the shaft back into place? Good luck.

APS film chamber stuck shut. Door won't open when film chamber release button is pressed


Sorry to hear about this issue. If you have a change bag, I would put a few jewelers screwdrivers in it then put the camera in it. With the bag closed up I would attempt to forcibly open the back. With the camera in the bag there is not any chance to expose the film. After the film is removed wind it back into the cartridge. Now send it off for developing.

Good luck,
Cordially,

EOS 30 how to remove film from camera, as camera is dead no reaction to new batteries


The easy way is to use a film changing bag, if you don't have one follow the instructions below:

You need to get the film out manually. In a darkened room, just a very small/dim lamp, or door open where the light is in the next room.

First check where the lever/switch is for opening the camera, remember where it is. Then put the camera under some jackets/blankets to protect it form any light. Put your arms under the covering keeping them flat with the surface so no light can seep in.

Open the camera by feel then pull out the film canister and start winding the film back into the canister manually by turning the canister spindle, always keeping the camera and film and hands/arms protected from light under the covers. You might have to tug a bit on the film to get it from the take-up spool inside the camera.

Some cameras have a button on the outside underneath the take-up spool, which you press to release the spool, I doubt that your camera has this because it is auto winding & rewinding?

I don't know how to open it to put new film in?!?!!


Do you mean "Yashica"? If so, pull up on the film rewinder knob on the top-left side of your camera. The film door should pop open.

I still have my old Yashica "Electro 35". Don't use it anymore as I've gone digital, but it still is a pretty cool film camera.

Removing old film putting in new


The latch to open should be on the side of the camera. The bottom front opens to allow you to remove the film pack

The film automatically loads then rewinds when a new film canister is added


Hm. Well, the way this camera works is actually very clever. When you first load a film into it, it winds the entire film out of the cassette and into the camer. As each shot is taken, the film is rewound back into the film cassette. The advantage of this is that if the back of the camera is accidentally opened, the shots which have already been taken are already safely back in the film cassette and will not be damaged by the light ingress. However, your camera is behaving strangely. I would check that the electrical contacts where the film cassette goes in are clean. You can clean them using a cotton bud moistened with methylated spirits.
