T70 LCD display

My Canon T70 is a great camera and i really dont want to go out and spend mega bucks on a new one, just for this small problem, the lcd on the top is going (bottom right corner) is completely black and i can just see how many exposures are left on the film, so its not affected the use in anyway yet, but id like to know if i can get the screen replaced as it does say in the book somewhere that the life of the screen is around 5 years and my was bought the day of release in the UK..

I also have t-70 that I bought when they were released and I worry about the same thing. Everything that I have been able to find on the internet is that Canon no longer makes replacements and no third party has come forward with one. I went on Ebay and found another t-70 that is in excellent condition for $50.00 to use as a parts donor in case something happens to my original. The only bad thing is that I have been using that one also, I keep that one loaded with B+W and the original loaded with color.

Looking for a part for my Canon T70 camera. The part is the actual button that you push to take pictures ... mine has fallen out and I need to replace it to be able to use it. Any ideas as to what the...


I admire your patronage to one of Canon's first all electronic cameras but the only place you will be able to find parts or service for for this gem is on e-Bay. The possibilities of getting this part are fairly good as most of the time the bottom plate would fracture and the battery door latch would snap off.
Great camera the only thing I didn't like about mine was I never got use to the beeping sound it constantly made.

Powers on, wont load film, beeps constantly, Can't select a mode,


I had a similar problem today with my camera. I'm not an expert on Cannon cameras or any cameras for that matter, but this is what I did to fix the problem.

I removed the bottom cover(has 6 screws i believe) carefully sliding the cover up starting near the battery cover. Holding the camera still I checked what gears I could to make sure they were free, but one small gear that moves up and down was stuck. I applied a very small amount of force to the gear to free it, reattached the cover and all the screws, and BAM! I was back to taking pictures.

Hopes this helps.

p.s if you can't find one of the screws its under the battery cover flap :).

I NEED A CANON COMMAND BACK 70. WHERE CAN I BUY SUCH A CAMERA COVER FOR MY SLR CANON T70 35MM SLR CAMERA


Canon has not sold those for quite a while. Your best bet is to go to Ebay, Film cameras, film camera body acessories, type in Canon Command back 70 and wait until one shows up.
If you save the search, you get an email everytime one comes up. Good luck.

The lens bayonet on my T70 is loose. Where do I find the screws to tighten it?


I've read that some of the "Handymen" out there have taken the faceplate off the T70 and put LocTite on the screws to hold them in place. OMG--not for me. Look on the web for a Canon authorized service center. I only paid $15 for my secondhand T70. I just leave the 500mm bazooka lens off it. A modest lens up to 135mm should be okay. Good luck.

Ordered lens for Canon T70 camera


Hi there and welcome to FixYa.

Check on the box. Your camera has an FD mount. The lens you need to use also has to fit the Canon FD mount. If the lens you received is not an FD mount lens...send it back.

Thanks for coming to FixYa.

LCD goes blank whether camera is on or off


Hey sirath,
I know you just got the camera serviced, but from how you describe the issue I would say there is a problem with the connection of the LCD to the camera (i.e. a loose wire). I am assuming that the camera will still take a picture, but you just can't see anything on the LCD screen. If this is the case I would have it looked at by an authorized service technician, and I would bring it back to whomever worked on the camera before because it is possible that the previous repair caused the problem and if that is the case this repair would most likely be free. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Canon T70 not taking photos!?!? Help


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.
