Use scotch tape to reattach tape

trim carefully so no extra tape hangs over sides

the "magic" tape works well - it is one that dissapears more when you rub it hard

    As In TapeCenter.com
    Never!!! Never use Scotch tape on your audio or videotape, eventually a chemical reaction will cause the glue to melt down and leak to adjacent parts of the tape and damage it beyond repair. Splicing tape is specially formulated for magnetic Mylar tape, Guaranteed not to melt or bleed. Splicing Blocka device used for positioning and holding down a section of magnetic tape while splicing and joining splices with splicing tape

A clip came off my Cannon sure shot 150u on the left side and it wont wind the film, how do i fix?


hi, this is film camera uses 35mm film , the clip is used to keep the film wound tightly on the take spool, no problem , use ultra thin cello tape on the tip of the film and attach it to the take up spool , ensure that the rewinding stops as soon as the counter reaches 0 or 1 , in case the camera does not have switch, remove the battery on time hope this works

The film ripped from the cassette on a contax rts when i was manually rewinding it. is there any way to salvage this at home? also, what is the best way to remove the film from the camera, without damaging...


before opening the camera, press the film rewind release button and ensure that the portion of film which remains attached to the cassette has been totally rewound. Next, with the camera in total darkness, open the camera back and remove the film cassette. Grab a firm hold of the loose end of the torn film and tape it to a piece of wooden dowelling and then turn the dowelling so that the film pulls out and winds onto it. Once the film has disengaged from the camera, place the dowelling with the film into a totally light-proof container: an old but spotlessly clean metal tin, such as a custard powder, cornflour or even a paint tin will do the job. Don't use a plastic lidded tin as the lid is always slightly translucent and will fog the film. When the tin lid has been firmly closed with the film inside, you can take the tin to a specialist processor and get both film portions developed.

Note that specialist handling of this type regarding development is not cheap. You cannot use a regular postal processor or minilab as their machinery cannot handle damaged film, only a professional lab (or a well-equipped friend) can individually process your film. Bear the cost in mind, as it's only worth doing if you are sure that there are valuable/irreplaceable images on the film.

Also note that by pressing the rewind button before pulling out the film, you are largely using the camera as intended so will not damage it. Afterwards, check the camera thoroughly and clean out any broken film fragments.Torn film is sometimes down to a manufacturing defect in the film, or due to the rewind button popping out during rewinding, or rewinding much too fast or due to excessive resistance in the take-up mechanism as the film is rewound; the latter usually indicates that the camera is overdue for a professional CLA (Clean, Lubricate, Adjust) service. The fault may commonly be due to a combination of those factors.

Sony hi8 tape has snapped and I want to repair it as it has sentimental value?


If the tape snaps or cut itself, try to open the cartridge by removing the 4 screws on its sides and carefully attached something like a Scotch tape on each end to mend the video tape. Once done, it will play smoothly when you try to play it back on your sony Hi8 camcorder. I'm sure this helps because I am doing it when a client has torn tapes that needs to be transferred to dvd's. ^_^

I installed new correction tape, but there's too much play in it. It keeps unravelling. I have no idea how to tighten it up. When I turn the take-up spool, it just unravels it more without tightening...


Verify that you have installed the proper correction tape. The types of tape that can be used with this system are: Item 1030 - Correctable Film Ribbon, 1230 - Correctable Film Ribbon 2pack, 1031 - Multi Strike Ribbon, 1032 - Nylon Ribbon, 3010 - Lift-off correction tapes (to be used with 1030 and 1230 ribbons), 4010 Cover-up Correction tape (to be used with 1031 and 1032 ribbons).
Make sure that the correction tape is installed properly. Pass the tape through the left guide, behind the ribbon guide and out through the right guide. The rough side of the tape should face the platen. Attach the feeder spool to the pin on the left. Attach the take up spool to the pin on the right. Turn the take up spool counter clockwise until a small amount of tape has wound around it. Replace the cassette ribbon and close the case cover. Press [CODE] + [RESET] to move the carrier to the previous position.

My cameras advance lever will not spring back and allow the film to move to the next frame. How do i fix it?


push the film release on the bottom of the camera and try to continue forward then. If you are trying to get 27 pictures on a 24 exp. roll you may have advanced your film so far that it is stuck on the piece of tape that attaches the film to the spool. Take only 24 pictures.

System error E007


E007 is a error code for the fuser unit. It means that the fixing film is out of "HP" - most likely the film is torn and needs to be replaced. It will not clear until the problem is fixed.

I have an 8mm high digital camcorder tape which got tangled in the camcorder. when i wound the tape back in the case and returned it to the camcorder it would only play a high pitched sound with no...


I've had to fix this problem several times. You need to open the 8mm cassette, and manually rewind to where the tape got twisted around. Then untwist it, and manually wind the tape back on the reels. and then put the cassette back together. If the tape isn't torn you should be fine. There might be creases in the tape- but they will only give you a slight picture glitch or drop out. You need to run a head cleaning tape through your camcorder before you try taping again. It might hose up the next tape if you don't.

Rewinding on a minolta 7000


i used to do this on an old Kyocera, and somehow looking at the 7000 diagram, they have the same, almost the same design.
take the camera to somewhere dark and clean (like dust free and all) perhaps your darkroom if you have one, bring a pair os scissor and a film container (for worst cases that the film is torn). clean your hands as well.

Check the bottom of the camera for a small button that disengages the motor gear (film release button). now open the film door then use a fingers to carefully pull the film evenly, you may feel like the film is being stuck, and if in case it did not move, check if you have a film release button on the bottom of the camera (usually place right below the film). as you do this feel the track of the film and check for damages that will indicate that the film has been torn because it is not loaded correctly or the motorhead malfunctioned.

now just wind the film back to the canister unless the track is torn off (note to leave the film leader out), once it is out, get the film developed right away.
now if the film track is torn cut it off then place it in the container, then have this handed to the developer and tell them that this is an open film, since it can be developed, partially though, it depends on the cut.

OR better off, you can bring your camera to the developer then tell then the film is broken inside and they will do all these for you.

good luck.

Unable to rewind film in camera


Well, I used to work at a camera store and actually encountered this a number of times with Minolta's. I can't remember if the motors wore out or if the film slipped or tore at the track. The solution: take the camera into a darkroom or pitch black environment and remove the film by hand. Bring a pair of scissors and a black film container just in case the film tears or the track is torn. Obviously be careful to ensure no light is available if you can't access a darkroom. Check the bottom of the camera for a small button that disengages the motor gear (some newer models may not have this)(you may have to hold it in). Open the film door and with clean hands, use your index fingers and thumbs carefully on the tracks only and pull evenly. You may feel some resistance from the motor and hear the motor but if it won't budge check again if the bottom of the camera has a film release. As you do this feel for torn areas in the track which may indicate a motor malfunction or improperly loaded film. Now just wind the film back into the canister unless the track is torn. You may want to leave the leader out, and you should probably have the film developed right away for a list of reasons. If the track is torn, cut it off at the canister and touching only the edges roll it up and put it inside the plastic film container. Mark it "open film", or Open only in darkroom etc. and mention it to your developer. Alternately you can just hand over your camera to your developer who will do all of this for you...
