On the left of the camera is where you power it on, and wind the film. pick up on the silver part of the film winding mechanism. That should pop opent the back. Hope this helps!

My cam was working fine. The film got over and I decided to load a new one. Once I did that and switched on my cam. The cam displays an error sign...??

The film may not be feeding to the take up spool properly. If that is so, there should be flashing symbol something like this: O_ _ _ _ . If that is the error you are seeig , open the back and re-insert your film. You may lose a couple of frames.

ERR sign keeps blinking in the lcd

First check the batteries. Are they fully charged? If you still have the same problem, try this:

Is the film (that which did not rewind fully) still in the camera? If so, open the film chamber door once in a dark room and close it again. Try to rewind the film again. This could possibly be the result of the film getting stuck somewhere, preventing the camera from rewinding it.
