Question about Canon T70 35mm SLR Camera

1 Answer

Will not stop rewinding, LCD screen does not turn on.

This is my dad's old slr, and it has been in storage, the batteries have pretty much leaked out on teh bottom, and ate away at the glue holding the metal contact plate for the battery, i have it rigged up with some aluminum foil and tape so the battery door stays closed. the problem here is, when i put the batteries in, the camera will not stop rewinding. the lcd screen does not display anything, and there is no film in the camera. I would like to fix this camera, and put it back into good storage and make sure it works in the future. Any help is appreciated, thanks.

Hello, I have not been using my Pentax zX5n for a while. Recently I decided to use it again and was surprised to discover that after loading a new batteries that it would not start. Actually after loading...

Have the old batteries leaked in the battery compartment ? Also, when you removed the previous film, did you set the camera into rewind mode ? If not, you have probably damaged the winding motor beyond economical repair.

The camera back button requires power to operate and as the electronics seem to be fried button pushing doesn't open the door. So is there a manual access way? thanks

I had a Canon Elan IIe and I don't recall having to have electronics to open the camera back.
Make sure you have a battery in it, turn it on look at the LCD panel and see if it has film in it.
If so you should be able to push the "mid roll" film rewind button located on the back left side it shows a film canister icon. Once the film has rewound into the canister release the back with the mechanical latch found on the left side (while facing the back of the camera) just push it down and the back will pop open. Those cameras are pretty darn good and the only thing I've seen friy the electronics is using an "old" type flash on the hot shoe and that takes the flash circuit board and melts the thing. I'd expect the camera battery is dead and you can't rewind the film back into the canister.

This is kind of embarassing... i received an old nikon f65, and i don't know how to remove the film properly without burning it...

The film should rewind automatically at the end of the roll. If it doesn't, press the two film-rewind buttons simultaneously for about one second. The film rewind buttons are maked with a red film icon; one is also the exposure compensation button to the right of the LCD control panel, the other is the auto exposure bracketing button to the left of the viewfinder.

Once the film is rewound, turn the power off. Slide the release lever on the left end of the body, and the back should pop open a little.

Wind film?

Behind the LCD screen on the back of the camera, is a a gray button marked "R", and a gray slide switch to the immediate left of that.

Press and hold the R button, while sliding the switch to the left, this can be easily done with one thumb. the display will blink 0 and the motor will stop when rewinding is complete.

ERR sign keeps blinking in the lcd

First check the batteries. Are they fully charged? If you still have the same problem, try this:

Is the film (that which did not rewind fully) still in the camera? If so, open the film chamber door once in a dark room and close it again. Try to rewind the film again. This could possibly be the result of the film getting stuck somewhere, preventing the camera from rewinding it.

N75 will not load film

Quick solution: force a manual rewind.
1. Remove film
2. Close camera back.
3. With the power turned on, press the two rewind buttons together. They are marked in red.
4. The camera will make a rewind sound and will stop after about 2 seconds.
5. DO NOT fire the shutter yet.
6. Put the mode on Manual and select a fast shutter speed like 1/90 sec. Any aperture will do.
7. Load the film correctly as given in the user's manual.
8. As you close the camera back, the film will prewind to the end of roll. At the end of the roll pre-wind the LCD will show you the total number of frames available.
9. Select any shooting mode.
10. Go on and take pictures.

Hope this helps

Try resetting the counter by pushing and holding the two rewind buttons simultaneously ( red symbols ), one on each side of the top cover. Then open and close the film door.
