Go digital- Seriously Take batteries out and clean the contacts in the base of the chamber with the eraser on the end of a pencil and clean the cover contacts remove the cassette and reload Then try- but if it is automatic and has died then a repair option may not be possible because of lack of parts unless there are secondhand ones to be had and the cost could be big bucks

Camera took pictures to # 7, then the 7 just blinks off and on, then won't do anything else. I put in new batteries, thinking that might be problem. It isn't/ what to do????


Likely its the film tranport motor. If that goes out, the camera cannot advance film. Try rewinding film. I forget if the 7000 had 1 or 2 such motors. Could also be teeth broken/worn out on the gears, but sounds like a trip to the repair shop is in order. If it will not rewind, put the camera inside a zipped dark jacket. Fold the bottom of the jacket to block light. Put your arms in the sleeves and open the camera back. Pull out the film, rewind it into the can.

Camera froze up Type Canon Sure Shot ZOOM-S


Sounds like the film either didn't advance thru the camera or its been rewound.

Evoca 115 stopped working after 22 shots


I think you have run out of film. 22 panoramic shots is the equivalent of at least 35 regular shots. Did you open the camera in a darkroom because if not you might of ruined the film. You need to try rewinding the film putting in a fresh roll and I think it should work. Hope this Helps.

Fuji 35mm Camera (Model DL-400)


Dawn

remove the battery and check that it is good. replace battery and open back door, close the door and it should run the motor / transport. if so, load film up to the drive sprocket being sure film will catch on the sprocket.
or move the latch holding back cover, and open the door fully. check the pressure plate on the door, gently pull the plate up a little to increase pressure on the film. bring the holding lever out toward the latch and close the door to lock the lever back to position.

Others here have suggested the problem lays with the plastic gear on the advancing motor beside the mirror.

This might cost $100 or so...?

Problems rewinding film.


Your film is already rewound (if I understood you correctly). Your camera is beeping because the film is rewound and there is no film for the camer to take the photo on since it has been rewound.

Pentax MZ 50 film winding problem


Well, I'm not a camera repairman, but it sounds to me (and probably to you too) that the electronics are damaged or perhaps there's dust in the contacts inside. I also have an MZ-50. There's so many electronics involved and they don't age so gracefully. I would consider buying another one off eBay or you can get a ZX-30 (same as MZ-30) for $75 from Blue Moon Camera & Machine with a 1 year warranty (parts and labor). The best way would be, in my opinion, to get a manual, mechanical camera from the 1970s and put a good lens on it. Those seem to last forever. No electronics to worry about. Advance and rewind the film manually. You can use a digital camera as a light meter to set the aperture and shutter speed. I'm thinking of going this route when my MZ-50 finally conks out.
