It's still in auto-rewind mode. Depending on the model, do a manual rewind with no film in the camera to reset the internal counter. Then load film and try it. Please leave feedback if this helps.

How do you load it


To open back cover lift knob on top of camera ( this knob has a small arm that unfolds - used in rewinding).
Once open you will see which side is the film side ( under this knob) and the take up side. On the film side raise the knob again in order to insert film case, the top of this should flip over later used to rewind film. with film trail out toward back of camera. Now push the knob down. Film should only be loaded one way so the knob can be lowered into film canister. Lower knob and Film canister is now secure.
Next thread film leader onto take up spool. Some times these have a slot , but most Just have the teeth that fit the film edge.thread the film into slot then unto teeth. You will need to use film advance arm (There should be an arm on the top opposite side of film knob) you would move that would advance film.
as you move this arm ( with cover open ) film holes should engage the teeth on bottom and top. ( if you can't advance after 1 or 2 advance arm swings) press take picture button ( releases springs).
continue until film is captured top and bottom. Use the film spool knob gently wind film back into canniester until snug don't over wind. Close cover, take a picture with lens cap on, repeat that. As you wind ,the film cartridge knob should rotate.
You are not wasting pictures film was designed for this waste.
you should know how many photos were on film 12/24/36 pictures.
you may have a knob to set to that number.
When your ready to remove film ,push silver button on bottom and use winder handle ,rotating until free and easy. Open cover mention earlier.
wow can't believe I remembered all that and hope that helps.

I have a Pentax ME super and the film door will close when there is no film but when i load it with film its not closing properly?


I really loved your camera type though it was 35 years ago I had one. I envy you.

Not sure why you should be having trouble unless you have a bad film. Have you tried more than one film?

If the film cassette has dropped in properly and is laying flat, the film rewind has to be raised, I think, to allow that and the sprocket holes in the film are properly engaged with the sprockets and the free end of the film engaged onto the film wind-on reel then everything should be well below the door aperture.

I would wind on maybe a frame and fire the shutter prior to closing the film door just to observe everything moving as it should and then close the door.
The last quarter inch the door must be closed against the pressure of a spring but if the little spring-loaded device behind the door which is intended to keep the film perfectly flat against the camera body is working correctly only a light pressure will be needed to compress those springs and close the door.
Perhaps something is wrong there?

I don't remember any problems closing the film door.
I hope this helps but if it doesn't please come back again and describe your actions and the feel of the door more fully.

Blinking 0 on my minolta maxxum 5 after I loaded the film. I cant take any pics.


It did not load your film. open the back, be sure you have the film pulled across the opening to the far side of the take-up spool, and close the back again. It should make noise as it winds the film, then number 1 should appear in the top window. If it does not make noise and advance film, you likely need the film advance motor replaced. Every time you close the back, it will try to advance film.
The motor itself can die and those plastic gears can break teeth. If repositioning the film does not work, your maxxum needs a trip to the repair shop.

My x 370 wont transfer pictures onto the film? The camera looks like it's in good condition. The roles come out blank!


Film cameras directly expose film to light to produce an image: they do not "transfer pictures onto the film", but your phrase is a big clue as it suggests you've only used digital cameras in the past and so may have made a very simple mistake with film loading.

If the film is blank as in transparent, then the film has not been exposed. If it's completely dark then it's been over exposed.

I suspect you mean that the film is unexposed as it's by far the most common fault: cameras like the X-370 have completely manual film loading; the film has to be manually engaged onto the take-up sprockets before closing the back of the camera. After that, correct loading is confirmed by watching to ensure that the rewind crank (top left knob as viewed from rear) rotates every time the film winding lever is used. Note that the frame counter will advance even if the film isn't correctly loaded. Once the film is used up, the winding lever won't operate and the film must be rewound back into the cassette before opening the back of the camera. To do this, you press the recessed button on the underside of the camera and use the rewind crank to rewind the film until you can feel no more resistance at all.

You'll find full instructions on the Norman Butkus website where he's provided a downloadable .pdf manual for your camera for free download.

Hopefully this has solved your problem; if so all I ask in return is for you to rate my answer. If it hasn't, then please add a comment and I'll try to offer other solutions to your problem.

Could a the trigger problem make it so that it cant take a photo?


Yes, The trigger closes a switch. If it didn't return the switch may still be closed, preventing further use.

I loaded the film but display window shows a flashing zero


Go ahead and try anyway. A ruined film is far cheaper than a useless camera or a professional repair. In any case, if the film hasn't loaded properly it will only be the first short length of film which is ruined. As this is a newly loaded film you haven't any risk of losing any undeveloped photos.

Auto spooling film systems are great when they work, but sometimes are a real pain and some cameras seem really picky about having a film leader of precisely the right length. See if you can engage the the film onto the spool manually.

Fuji 35mm Camera (Model DL-400)


Dawn

remove the battery and check that it is good. replace battery and open back door, close the door and it should run the motor / transport. if so, load film up to the drive sprocket being sure film will catch on the sprocket.
or move the latch holding back cover, and open the door fully. check the pressure plate on the door, gently pull the plate up a little to increase pressure on the film. bring the holding lever out toward the latch and close the door to lock the lever back to position.

N75 will not load film


Quick solution: force a manual rewind.
1. Remove film
2. Close camera back.
3. With the power turned on, press the two rewind buttons together. They are marked in red.
4. The camera will make a rewind sound and will stop after about 2 seconds.
5. DO NOT fire the shutter yet.
6. Put the mode on Manual and select a fast shutter speed like 1/90 sec. Any aperture will do.
7. Load the film correctly as given in the user's manual.
8. As you close the camera back, the film will prewind to the end of roll. At the end of the roll pre-wind the LCD will show you the total number of frames available.
9. Select any shooting mode.
10. Go on and take pictures.

Hope this helps
