Question about Canon T70 35mm SLR Camera
The camera was working fine until two rolls of film ago. Now when I go to take pictures the camera takes about 4-5 pictures and then stops in mid advance and starts to beep. When I turn it off and back on it sounds as if the camera is trying to advance the film but it never does and it starts to beep again. Any ideas?
It sounds like your camera is having problems advancing your film, which could mean it is jammed inside the camera. The other thing you should check is to see if the battery is weak & doesn't have enough power to advance the film (and thus the beeping). If it is not the battery, then go in a darkroom (completely dark) and take out the film (if you're unable to rewind it inside the camera). Look at the transport rollers (in the back for the camera) and make sure they're clean (sometimes film chips get jammed in there) Let me know if this helps you. Thanks.

I also have been having this problem. Couldn't get the t70 to advance or navigate a menu or anything, I just got beeping. I manually advanced the toothed black roller on the right which you load the film onto. It seems like moving the mirror(or something) is also part of this same drive system, because it was pretty easy until it got really difficult and then the mirror fired, and it was easy again. At least in my case I think there is some sand somewhere in those guts, and its stopping the entire drive. Right after you've rolled it enough to get that click, pop the film back in and see if it will advance. Took multiple tries. Only stop-gap.
