Question about Fuji Endeavor 400ix APS Point and Shoot Camera

1 Answer

Film doesn't load

My camera stopped working a few years ago, but I recently found it again while unpacking boxes. I remember loving this camera and apparently kept it - just in case I can figure out how to fix it! Anyway, when I drop the film in the camera, it isn't loading the film. As I remember, the film should automatically load. I've checked the owner's manual - the film is new (in the '1' position). I've tried loading it both while the camera is on and while the camera is off. If I remember correctly, the problem started when I had a roll of film in the camera and it wouldn't roll itself up after it finished - nor would it roll itself when the manual rewind button was used. I took it to a camera shop and they were unable to fix it. As I recall, I kept fiddling with the manual rewind button, and eventually it worked; however, ever since then, it has never loaded another roll of film. I imagine I will have to ship this off if I want to get it repaired. I guess my big question is - does this sound like an expensive problem? I may be better off just getting a new camera, but I hate to get rid of this one if the problem can be easily fixed. Thanks!

My camera will begin to turn on but the flash settings won'

is it the auto film load feature on this camera doing this ??? it maybe the type of film u use , most auto loads are not to forgiving on the different types of film , I had this problem as I still use a film camera a lot for infrared photos (digitals too expensive ) and have found that its real picky on whos film I use to weather it works or not , as on some brands of film it just goes on and on and never stops , the only way I can save it from being ruined is to tell it to rewind , it then sucks all the film back into holder and I try it again ,sometimes works sometimes no

I have a Pentax ME super and the film door will close when there is no film but when i load it with film its not closing properly?

I really loved your camera type though it was 35 years ago I had one. I envy you.

Not sure why you should be having trouble unless you have a bad film. Have you tried more than one film?

If the film cassette has dropped in properly and is laying flat, the film rewind has to be raised, I think, to allow that and the sprocket holes in the film are properly engaged with the sprockets and the free end of the film engaged onto the film wind-on reel then everything should be well below the door aperture.

I would wind on maybe a frame and fire the shutter prior to closing the film door just to observe everything moving as it should and then close the door.
The last quarter inch the door must be closed against the pressure of a spring but if the little spring-loaded device behind the door which is intended to keep the film perfectly flat against the camera body is working correctly only a light pressure will be needed to compress those springs and close the door.
Perhaps something is wrong there?

I don't remember any problems closing the film door.
I hope this helps but if it doesn't please come back again and describe your actions and the feel of the door more fully.

Film not going through camera

E indicates empty.

try resetting the camera. Pus both the rewind buttons (plus/minus button by release button and bracket button on side of mirror box). Push them at the same time. Let the camera run until it stops (just a few seconds). This resets the camera. Then try loading the film again. Make sure the leading edge of the film isn't bent and is the edge is within the red rectangle under the take up spool. It should then load the film. Note: the N75 pulls all the film out of the cassette and then rewinds it back I one shot at a time until you reach '0'.

I have a Nikon N90S, and it stopped taking pictures after 15 shots. We stopped using the camera, and used our backup to finish the shoot. I thought that maybe the roll of film jammed, but when I...

Have you tried replacing the batteries? It sounds like the batteries may just be too low to wind film, but can function without a load.

I can't remember if the N90S has the vertical grip release or not, but if it does, have you attempted to use it, to see if the camera functions from that release, or on fully manual settings with a cable release? Are there any error messages reading out on the LCD top panel or in the viewfinder? Are you using an attached flash? What settings are you using?

If it's not functioning, on any settings including manual with film loaded, then it's most lilely in need of a visit to a repair shop to figure out where the issue lies.

But, I'd try new batteries first.

Camera inoperable

According to the manual found here:

It says, "If the film is not loaded properly, 'E' on the LCD panel blinks, indicating that the film is not loaded properly. Open the back cover and load the film once again."
