Check at the hinged side of the film door for worn or missing light tight foam rubber. It degrades after a few years and needs to be replaced.

My photos come out a pink-violet hue. camera is set on auto.


That is a problem with either old film or poor processing. Unless you're using a filter on your camera lens, colors like that are related to unstable film or poor/contaminated film processing.

I have a pentax me and don't know how to change film


OK Turn the camera upside down. On the bottom is a small button in a recess. Press the button in. You may have to hold it in. Turn the camera the right way up. On the top at the left hand side is a small silver lever. It is folded into the top of the dial. Unfold it with a fingernail. Once unfolded you will see that it has become a winder. DO NOT PULL THE LEVER UPWARDS Now, while holding the button on the bottom, turn the lever clockwise. Keep turning untill you can feel no more resistance and you hear a sort of flapping noise from inside the camera. NOW pull up the lever. It will rise up on a shaft and at a vertain point it will click and the back of the camera will open. The film should all be inside the can. Take the can out and take it to a lab to be processed.
To put a film in. Locate a new can of film in the same place as the one you removed. and push down the lever back to its original place. This locks the fiilm can into place so that it cannot come out.
Pull out about 3 inches (7-8cm) of film out of the can and lay it across the camera so that the end is over the roller at the right hand side and touches the edge of the inside of the camera. If the film does not go over the roller then next part will not work.
Close the back of the camera. It will click into place and lock./
Now wind on the film 2 or 3 times. Start taking photos.

The photos from my EOS 5000 film camera have two faint dimples at the top of the photo and to the left. What is causing this?


Difficult understanding what is going on. If it is in the print then look at the negatives. Are they on there, if so check with your lab it may be a processing machine issue.

35mm film developed with streaks


I take it the streak is a hot streak of light. If you're shooting negative, look at the negative and see if it's one long streak. If so the light leak could be anywhere between the film roll and the take up roll. I would open up the back, go into a closet and shine a bright light on the front of the camera and see if you can find the leak and tape it up. Otherwise, 35mm SLR's are very cheap these days. I'd recommend a Canon A-1 for your daughter, but you can't go wrong with any Canon or Nikon.

White streaks on photos


Light leak, definately a light leak. You need to change or add foam around the chamber to prevent any light from entering.

How do you open te Vivtar V4000?


I have used left/right as if you are holding the camera ready to take pictures.
I have included the instructions to rewind the finished film.

!/ Press and hold the film rewind button button on the right side of the camera base.
2/ Fold out the rewind crank top left of camera and turn it in the direction of the arrow.
3/ Once the pressure eases, the film is completely wound into the cassette.
4/ Lift up the film rewind knob top left of camera and pull it out to open the back cover. Now the film cassette can be taken out.
5/ Do this in a place away from direct sunlight.

Fog on right side of photos


Assuming the film door opens from the right, then the most likely reason is the light seal on the door. If it's just got dirty, brush it clean with a stiff brush. If it's badly worn then a camera repair shop may replace it for a reasonable fee - although I have done DIY repairs on this sort of thing using velvet :). Not for the faint-hearted tho'.

BTW the reason it's random is probably that it depends on how long each shot was in the gate before winding on and the ambient light conditions.

Nikon F60 Film rewind uncoded film help


Most manual cameras have a button to release the film on the bottom of the camera, push the button in and turn the rewind crank (left side of the top of the camera) until you feel the crank suddenly turning much easier.

Panoramic pictures??


A panoramic photo on 35mm film is just cutting off the top and bottom. even if you can't set the camera that way, you can ask your local photo store to print any shot that way for you. Usually 2x the price of 4x6.
