Question about Nikon FM10 35mm SLR Camera
My film advance lever has popped out of my Minolta X700 cameras body. The shaft is still attached to the lever. What can be done to lock it back in? My power winder still works the camera although it looks like heck now

SOURCE: help, my camera wont take pictures
I just had this same problem, slightly panicked. But thanks to the internet the answer was fast and easy. :) Hold down the shutter button and then advance the film lever. also the film advance lever should be facing you, as if trying to poke you when you lean in. Then take a picture. Practice this with no film inserted. Worked for me. Hold down the snap button while turning the advance film lever.

SOURCE: nikon n75 problem loading film
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..

SOURCE: Film advance lever and shutter release button are "stuck"
No, it is not the battery. My guess is that the film leader did not stay in the take-up spool and is now bunched up around it. Try rewinding the film carefully as you normally would but remember that you are only rewinding a small portion of the length. You can even just open the film door and start over. You will only loose 3 or 4 frames on the roll.

Do you press the shutter button to release the lever for the next photo? That's how you advance the film from the exposure to light, when first insterting the film.

Is the re-wind button stuck in? If so it can be released by moving the take-up sprocket manually. If that did not work there is a broken take up gear. This was a common problem with the X700, a white plastic gear was used at the bottom of the take up spool mechanism that just was not strong enough especially when trying to get just one more shot from the roll of film. No new parts are available.
