Film stuck in on right hand side


First, be sure you've pushed the film release button (usually located on the bottom of older film cameras) and then try rewinding. If the film is stuck on the take-up reel of your camera your best bet is to manually unwind the film from the reel and see if it will work properly again. If not then it wasn't a film problem but a mechanical one on the reel.

Film advance lever stuck


Do you have a film in the camera? If so is it all exposed? Best thing to do is press the film rewind button and try the lever at the same time - this will eliminate stuck film issues as it removes film tension from the system. If this does not solve the issue then you need someone to have a closer look.

HAVING TROUBLE THREADING FILM - ELMO FP-C


Is your film super 8mm? If yes, then the red sprocket above the lens should be pushed in, and the bottom black sprocket will stick out. If you have regular 8mm, then the black bottom sprocket should be pushed in. If the sprockets are not in the correct position, push the green lever forward (towards the screen) then open the two orange tabs, then push in the correct sprocket. Once you have the correct sprockets aligned, close the orange tabs. How to tell if you have 8mm or super 8mm film: Look carefully at the film image. If the sprocket hole is next to the middle of the image, it's super 8mm. If the sprocket hole is between images, it's 8mm. If your green lever is stuck in the forward position, that's because the film is not threaded. Once your film threads correctly, the green lever will spring back.

Film roll stuck in my camera canon eos lx


The Canon EOS is a digital line of cameras from what I can tell. If that is the case, then there is no film in the camera.

However, assuming that you actually have a 35mm camera with film stuck in it, the following should work for. You don't indicate what you mean by stuck, but the standard solution for removing 35mm film from a camera is to take the camera into a dark room, open the back of the camera and remove the film and canister, being careful to not tear the film. While still in the dark room, place the film into a light proof bag to avoid spoiling it when it goes into the light. You can then contact a local photo processor about their ability to process the loose film. Make sure that the bag is clearly marked to avoid having someone open it by accident, spoiling the film in the light. If you can't find someone locally who can process the film, Kodak can do it for you in Rochester, New York. Contact them for instructions on shipping the film.

If you don't care about the film or pictures it may contain, feel free to simply open the camera and remove the cansiter and film, discard it, and start over.

Nikon N75 or Canon EOS 10????????

How is the film stuck? Is the rear door stuck? Does the film door open?

As long as you do not damage the film canister, the film will be ok. If the door opens and the film is rewound, use something to pry out the top of the canister from the camera. Then you can remove the film.
Even a film roll of 36 should not get stuck. Check the cartridge are for anything sticky. Sometimes these older cameras get some sticky residue from decaying foam in the shutter area. This would be a good time to send it in for CLA - Clean, Lubricate, Adjust.
My own EOS 10 had that problem. If you can't get the film out, the repair shop will do that for you.

I have an Canon AE-1 and the film advance lever will not advance the film, the lever goes half way. The shutter will not release. Thanks


The film is either at the end or stuck. The shutter will not release unless the film advance lever has gone all the way and back.
Make a note of the frame counter. Rewind the film and remove it from the camera (When you feel the film to come loose from the receiving spool, stop rewinding to prevent the end of the film to disappear inside the can. This way you can reload it if it was stuck in the middle.) If the film was completely exposed, take it to be developed.
With the empty camera, try to advance the lever and release the shutter. If this works, the problem was the film and not the camera. Everything is fine. If the problem persists, take it to be repaired.
If the film was stuck in the middle, load it again into the camera. With the lense cap on (preferably in a dark room or similar) 'shoot' as many 'empty' frames as you had on the counter plus two more. Finish the film and develop the pictures.
If the film stucks again at the same place, rewind it and develop normally. It was a bad film.
Hope this helped you to solve the problem.

Latch for the Film door broke


This is so tedious a job that I would not try it myself unless I was adept in doing this right.Unless the camera costs a lot to start with, I would just get another SLR. I believe the cost in repairing it depending on model and the size, will be about $200. I say this because from experience, I had a $250 camera 20 years ago and the latch broke on mine and he said it would not be worth it to fix it. Unfortunately, it was way out of warranty.
