Question about Leica C3 35mm Point and Shoot Camera

Open Question

Hello there, I have a Leica C3 point and shoot film camera. The film rewind motor has started going off when it is not appropriate. At first it started happening when the camera had no film in it, then I put a film in - and the same thing happened. Even after 1 shot the film rewound, and then I could hear the rewind motor going off. What is the best thing to do? Thanks Guy Crossman

SOURCE: nikon n75 problem loading film

I have (had) the same problem. I came onto this site to find out what I can do to fix it. It didn't help. I got pissed and almost threw the camera away. So I decided to get a little rough with the camera, (i normally wouldn't do this but i was going to throw it away).

I loaded the film like normal but before I closed the back I manually wound the film around the opposite spool. I guess I fooled the camera into thinking it had already wound the film.

When I closed the back of the camera everything worked fine.

I then snapped off the pics the camera said were left.

After this first role, I loaded the next role like normal. The camera worked like a charm!

By the way...the mirror dropped back down when I manually wound the film around the spool.

I hope this works...if it doesn't make any sense feel free to email me with any questions..

GOOD LUCK.

SOURCE: Pentax MZ 50 film winding problem

Well, I'm not a camera repairman, but it sounds to me (and probably to you too) that the electronics are damaged or perhaps there's dust in the contacts inside. I also have an MZ-50. There's so many electronics involved and they don't age so gracefully. I would consider buying another one off eBay or you can get a ZX-30 (same as MZ-30) for $75 from Blue Moon Camera & Machine with a 1 year warranty (parts and labor). The best way would be, in my opinion, to get a manual, mechanical camera from the 1970s and put a good lens on it. Those seem to last forever. No electronics to worry about. Advance and rewind the film manually. You can use a digital camera as a light meter to set the aperture and shutter speed. I'm thinking of going this route when my MZ-50 finally conks out.

I think you have already ruined the film except the frames that are rewind back to the film cartridge.
You can take the film out from the camera, push in the rewind button at the bottom, pull out the film from the film take up reel.
On the film cartridge, turn on the long tube in the middle clockwise to wind all the film back into the cartridge.
If you had the back opened briefly, do manual film rewinding in the dark room.

How do you open the film compartment


Film releases are on the sides, or bottoms of cameras. Make sure the film is fully rewinded before you open it (or open it in pitch black, and manually rewind the film into the canister).

How can I rewind film in a Pentax Zoom 60-X camera


I used to use point and shoot film cameras. My guess is that there is a button underneath which when you depress will automatically rewind the film. Sometimes the button is very small that you may need a ballpen point to press it. Hope this helps cuz i have no idea what the Pentax Zoom looks like. I am guess it is a point an shoot type and not an SLR. If it is a point and shoot type, you must be sure the battery has power or else it won't rewind.

Unexpected Rewinding


Could you be putting too much film onto the wind spool? Take the end of the film leader no farther than the RED/ORANGE marker at the spool. Too much film will cause it to bind and start rewinding.
