Dust on the image sensor of a digital camera will show up as a dark spot in the same location of every frame. The sensor is a delicate piece of equipment and you need to clean it to solve your problem .... I dont think poor battery can cause a smudge on the film .....

I don't think that a low battery power can cause a smudge in the film.

After all the battery compartment is not where the film is right ?

Look closer to where the film is rolled, that is where your problem is originating.

Dear Sir/madam,

Your thought is wrong. This is the shutter problem and also

) The shutter has not opened (or a similar fault)
2) The film has not wound on
3) You have mixed up exposed and non exposed films (This is more common than you would expect)


try this...

Put fresh batteries into the camera. (I fix more problems with this than any other thing, even with the "I just did that last week" statement).

Open the back of the camera and make sure there is no film in it.

Try to "take" a picture with the back open, I am not sure if you can do this with this model, but its worth a try. If it will function, then place the f stop to its most open position and cycle the camera a few times at varying shutter speeds to see if I can detect any variation while I am looking through the lens.

Close the back and with no film in the camera, try to take a few pictures and insure what the frame counter does.

It appears the only thing in common between the two cameras is some blank film and the operator. I would really look for an operator error

thanks
good luck

Sometimes battery will conflict the problem of your camera. is this the first time that youve experience this? try to change the battery and the film and be sure that film is the same as you use before to see the real problem.

I have my late grandfather's Canon AE-1, and when I first got it I used it quite a bit, worked great. Unfortunately, for some reason it started taking blank pictures and I lived in a fairly rural area and...


Fortunately the older SLRs are mechanical and pretty simple to detect problems with. Without being there and having a "hands on" experience with it, my first explanation would be that your shutter is not functioning properly, (opening and closing) when you trigger it. This could be caused by dust or a faulty trigger release. It then needs to be taken apart and cleaned, and or mechanically checked for obstructions or broken parts from the trigger to the shutter. Either way, it's costly to have a shop perform these operations and there are few that do that anymore. You might want to consider going to a DSLR. Not to push you in that direction or try to sell you one....but I do have a Nikon D80 with 5 lenses and a metal carrying case available.

After develop the pictures i found that some images are completely blank and the images are cut into half. Half develop and half not. what the cause of it?? thanks


Might be film coming loose when inserting in loading spool and skipping when winding forward after making a shot. Could try bending first 1/2" of film tongue before inserting in slot in windup spool so that it won't slip out and be sure film sprocket holes are engaged with film transport sprockets and a bit under tension when loading film before closing camera cover. Your 'half-frame' problem might be that you are shooting at a 'flash' shutter setting of 1/60 when not using flash.

I have a problem. I have taken several rolls of film, after they are developed there is no pictures,just blank negatives,what might be the problem and how do I get it fixed?


If you can see the frame numbers on the edge of the unexposed negatives, the problem is most likely either the camera's shutter is not opening, or the camera's take-up/advance mechanism isn't working properly. It could also be that the film isn't being loaded correctly. Check all three, or have a camera shop (not department store!) check it out for you. They should be able to test the first two situations easily, and help you if it's a loading problem.

Blank Film Developing


It likely did not catch when it was first loaded, and as such never advanced through the camera. Open the back of the camera, with no film in it, then set the shutter speed to 1, advance the film advance lever and take a shot. You should see the shutter curtains open and then close a second later. Then advance the film lever again and watch to see that the sprockets are turning. If they are, then the camera is exposing and the mechanics are working properly to advance the film. Chances are it was just loaded incorrectly.

Canon EOS Rebel II If I don't wait long enough between pictures, the next one is yellow?


This could be a number of problems. It could be that your shutter is getting stuck and keeping the exposure to fully accept on the roll of fim. It could be as simple as you just got a bad batch of film. (happend to me quite a few times.) If you don't feel it's the film, then you definitly need to take the Rebel to a camera shop. If you have no knowledge of the innards of a shutter type camera, you might end up destroying something else. I'm sure the people at the camera shop will give you a good deal if you tell them you think it's the shutter.
Let me know!

Check for the settings of the camera .Open the back door of the camera now press the button seeing through back, if the shutter opens up and closes everything is correct.

Camera turns off


Open the file door and check to see if the shutter blades look uneven, like they might have been pushed out of track. Sometimes it's simple to re-track them - other times it'll have to go to a repair shop. Another cause is the film motor wears out and has to be replaced - a job for the repair shop.

Pictures are not turning out REBEL Ti


If your film's ISO speed is relatively high (say, above ISO 200 or 400) and you're shooting in bright light, your camera's shutter/aperture won't be able to compensate for the light. In that case, using a slower film is the solution.
