Nikon n75 problem loading film

When I try to load a new roll of film into the camera, instead of loading the film, the camera will rewind it back into the film cannister. It used to be an occasional problem, but it's now rewound the last six rolls of film I've tried to load. When I close the door, I can hear the gears going, but never the click and the numbers on the screen don't start advancing. Then the ERR message pops up and when I open the door the film has been rewound back into the case. I've tried taking out the batteries to reset. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I have the same problem. Before this started it would periodically lock up so that I couldn't do anything. Now this is all it will do.

I have (had) the same problem. I came onto this site to find out what I can do to fix it. It didn't help. I got pissed and almost threw the camera away. So I decided to get a little rough with the camera, (i normally wouldn't do this but i was going to throw it away).

I loaded the film like normal but before I closed the back I manually wound the film around the opposite spool. I guess I fooled the camera into thinking it had already wound the film.

When I closed the back of the camera everything worked fine.

I then snapped off the pics the camera said were left.

After this first role, I loaded the next role like normal. The camera worked like a charm!

By the way...the mirror dropped back down when I manually wound the film around the spool.

I hope this works...if it doesn't make any sense feel free to email me with any questions..

GOOD LUCK.

This is a known problem with this camera (and not the only one..). The fix is easier but ammaseur was close enough.. The fix is to manually force a film rewind by pressing at the same time the two rewind buttons (marked) as described in the manual. Then it should work fine until it happens again & you'll have to repeat. Hope this helps, otherwise an ok camera for the price.

Owner's Manual for a Fuji Discovery 400 Tele Plus


Here's the owner's manual (link below) .

NOTE -> the DL-400 extracts the entire roll of film from the canister as soon as you close the back. Just the REVERSE of what you would expect. Then every time you take a picture, the camera rewinds the exposed (single shot) picture back into the cannister. When loading the film, YOU MUST PULL OUT ENOUGH FILM FROM THE CANNISTER TO GO ACROSS THE ENTIRE BACK OF THE CAMERA. There are 7 little notches on the botton of the cover. You won't see them until you open the back. The film MUST be extended far enough to reach the notches.

My Canon EAS Film Rewind Knob is rolling my new film back into the cassette instead of into the camera...please help.


That's what the rewind knob is all about: It will allow you to rewind the film back into the cassette to avoid it to be exposed to the light and therefore losing your pictures.

When loading the film you must insert the film into the receiving spool by hand while the camera back is open. Make sure to advance the start enough so that the spool will 'stick' to the film.

Problem with loading film in my Nikon F60.


Draw the film all the way to the receiving spool. There's an 'eye' inside the film compartment to check that the film is loaded. When the film is not correctly loaded the camera thinks it's empty and rewinds the film.

I may have loaded film roll that has already been taken?


Usually when you finish exposing a roll of film, you rewind it until you are sure it is all wound into the cassette. There is a change in the sound as the end of the roll leaves the camera. An exposed roll would have no film sticking out of the cassette. A new unexposed roll will have a bit of film sticking out of the cassette to pull across the ack to the take up roll.

Film rolls back automaticaly


The camera shouldn't be doing this, assuming you're using 36 exposure (or 24 exposure) film. You may want to set a custom function to prevent automatic rewind -- you would have to rewind the film yourself by pressing the rewind button.

To do this:
1. Under the palm grip, press the 'CF' (custom function) button.
2. Use the main dial to select 'F1' in the LCD. It should show a '0' below the 'F1'.
3. Press the 'CF' button to change the '0' to a '1'.
4. Press the shutter button half way to save the change and exit the custom function setting mode.

If you want to stop the rewind with the film leader still exposed (film doesn't rewind entirely into the cannister), use the same steps but set custom function 'F2' to a value of '1'.

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.

The film automatically loads then rewinds when a new film canister is added


Hm. Well, the way this camera works is actually very clever. When you first load a film into it, it winds the entire film out of the cassette and into the camer. As each shot is taken, the film is rewound back into the film cassette. The advantage of this is that if the back of the camera is accidentally opened, the shots which have already been taken are already safely back in the film cassette and will not be damaged by the light ingress. However, your camera is behaving strangely. I would check that the electrical contacts where the film cassette goes in are clean. You can clean them using a cotton bud moistened with methylated spirits.

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
