I need help loading film on to a Canon AZ-2900R Automatic


It is not possible for me to find a manual, but the camera looks like my my EOS5oo (film camera, not the digital one)
I still have some film camera's from Canon and the way to put in the film is the same in almost every one, so I give it a try. Make sure you have the correct batteries in the camera. You can check by turning the mode dial to any position other than L and look on the display. If the battery symbol is flashing, it is too low. Turn the mode dial to the L. Open the camera, then put the roll in the left hand space and while holding the spool in place pull out enough film (one to 2 inch) to reach the orange point on the right hand side. Then close the camera.
If you pulled out more film, please put it back in the spool by turning the knob.
As soon as the camera is closed it will spool the film to the starting point. A little spool symbol and the ISO will be visible on the display. When the spool is blinking something went wrong and you have to insert again.
I'm not sure if your camera detects the correct ISO, but if not you have to correct that your self. I don't know how to do that.
I think there is a category for analog cameras too. This one was in digital cameras. Success

Film will not grab on the take up spool or if it does it binds breaking the film


You don't say what kind of camera you have so this answer will be kind of generic. Get a roll of film you don't care about to use for test purposes. With the back of the camera open, load the film as usual and watch what happens.

Hello, Please help me I love my camera! The last 3 rolls of film I have taken only the last half of the roll come out the first part of the film is black I'm only getting half of the pictures I take. It's...


Most likely this is a shutter problem. If you are using flash and getting the half pictures, then make sure the flash is a canon compatible flash and the synch is set to 60th. If the problem is all the time including non-flash pictures, then the shutter will have to be repaired.

My Pentax SPII shoots blank images


You can check the shutter without film in the camera. Remove the lens and open the film door. You will see the cloth curtains of the shutter in the center. Advance the film lever to **** the shutter and set the speed dial to a slower speed like 1/15. Hold the camera so it is aimed a a light source, (a window will do) and fire the shutter. You should see the light through the shutter for the time duration is is set to. (1/15). If you see the light source, repeat the process going up one speed setting until you reach 1/1000. If you see the shutter open and close as described, then try another roll. After you load the film and close the back door, make note of what the rewind knob is doing as you advance the film. It should spin counter-clockwise each time. That is a easy test to know that the film is traveling in the camera properly. Vary your exposures with the new roll at different speeds and f-stops. You should get exposures, but if not let us know.

I may have loaded film roll that has already been taken?


Usually when you finish exposing a roll of film, you rewind it until you are sure it is all wound into the cassette. There is a change in the sound as the end of the roll leaves the camera. An exposed roll would have no film sticking out of the cassette. A new unexposed roll will have a bit of film sticking out of the cassette to pull across the ack to the take up roll.

I have changed both betteries. The field where the info is says help I do not know what to do. A roll of film got stuck halfway thru. I don't know if it was the battery or the camera I have never had...


at the bottomside of the camera you should see a tiny hole, inset a straightened paperclip into it, this will manually release the film.. if its a button type just pressing it wud do... try this if u havent yet...
the roll wud get stuck for two reasons... if u ve wound the film in the opposite direction or
It is possible that the film has broken free from the canister. You may have to try and push it back in the canister by hand



if that doesnt help.....you have to slowly pull the film out by hand. Sounds like there is just a minor jam and thats why the batteries are messing up. Just try to pull everything out because that will be the only way to free it. I see this problem all to often I work with Kodak. Im sure if you take your time and gently pull the film out turn the camera off and back on the cmaera will reset itself and should work just fine.


hope this was helpful thank you good luck with ur camera have a nice day

Film Loading Error


This also happens to Yashicas often. (though instead of stirpping the film, it will rewind it back into the roll. Something's wrong with either the firmware or the drive system. It'll need to be taken to a camera repair shop, or you'll have to send it back to Canon for warranty service, if it's still within warranty.
