I bought a used Noblex Pro 60/150 E recently. My first roll of film has bad overlapping problem. The frames overlap one another by as much as 5 mm (quite consistently throughout). Wonder how to fix this. According to manual, there should be a spacing of 3 mm.
Just got mine as well! Awesome! mine also overlapped but it is simply a film loading issue. Make certain the film is loaded with the winding nob in the "S" position when the arrow on the film aligns with the red dot. Wind on to shot 1 and it will click and stop. All shots should then line up.
Another tip - take images 1 and 2 of the same pic at the same exposure of the exact same scene. Assuming the rest of the images are taken with the same lighting situation over the next hour or so your local lab should be able to clip test image 1, then process the remainder of the film ("push" or "pull") to give 5 remaining images exposed spot on!!

After you remove the bottom cover on these, there is a steel plate. Under the plate is a phase switch which needs to be cleaned. You have to de-solder several flex circuits to get the plate off, and when the plate is removed there is a loose spring (if memory serves me correctly, I haven't done one of these in years).
Also, the black button you push to free the flash has lips on the inside that have a strong spring attached, and the lips break off. They can fall into the gearing on the bottom
The question is too general sunil. you might have to enable wireless function wit a hotkey sequence--mine is Fn-F2--but most pc's are different goto manufacturers site/manual and find out if you have this keyboard function. there are available to the consumer,gereralising 6 wi-fi protocols commonly in use ,thats 802.11 a/b/g/n/i/x-----n/ is the most recent. they have between 11 and 14 channels depending on which country you are in (excluding Korea) channel 1,channel6,and channel 11 are the best channels to choose because they dont overlap,the width of these channels is 22mhz ,all the other channels overlap. bluetooth uses a similar channel system and can come into conflict with 802.11 also it can suffer interference from other household goods like microwave ovens. the signal is sent out repeatedly in "frames" whic can be encrypted by one of the encryption standards but is also prone to be "dropped" in which case the code on modern machines re-sends the "handshake" repeatedly.
If the film has retracted back into the cassette, you'll need to buy or borrow a film leader retriever to fish it out. The latter is a thin specially shaped piece of spring steel which is slipped into the cassette film slot in total darkness and then engages onto the film leader sprockets, enabling you to pull the film leader out again. They can be a little tricky to use if you haven't done so before. Then just load the film as usual and in total darkness (or with the lens cap on and the viewfinder fully covered) set the camera to 1/1000 shutter speed and the smallest aperture and fire and wind until you're one frame past where you left off to give you a safety margin against overlapping images.
Note that when you get the film processed you need to explain what's happened: if you don't and the negatives are automatically cut, the cutter may slice through the images taken after the film restarts. This is because the automated cutter looks at the first few frames to calibrate where to cut, and then continues this pattern for the entire roll. But the shots taken after the restart are unlikely to follow the exact same spacing. Cheap postal developing and printing companies cannot offer this tailored approach, but any good Mall/supermarket/High St minilab usually can although they may charge a little extra.
Basically, if you have to pay additional processing charges or have to buy a leader retriever, it may well be cheaper to develop and print the film as is and put the mistake down to experience.
I hope that I've assisted you and that you take a moment to rate my reply.
This is due to a poorly manufactured and designed camera: it IS a Holga, after all...
What's happening is that the film advance is allowing the film backing paper (which has the numbers printed on) to slip relative to the film. All you can do is to learn when to compensate by advancing the film a little more than the numbers indicate.
Given that most Holgas are only designed to last for around ten to twelve rolls of film (they can last far longer though), you might not have to put up with the fault for much longer.
Are you sure that you have loaded the film properly?
Sometimes if you have not started the film so that the sprocket pulls the film correctly the film can aquire slack and the teeth of the sprocket may not be successfully pulling the film from the canister each time.
