Easiest way is to follow the instructions in the camera manual. If you tell us which camera you are using, we may be able to offer more detailed information. BTW, there is no need to shout.

How do you load it


To open back cover lift knob on top of camera ( this knob has a small arm that unfolds - used in rewinding).
Once open you will see which side is the film side ( under this knob) and the take up side. On the film side raise the knob again in order to insert film case, the top of this should flip over later used to rewind film. with film trail out toward back of camera. Now push the knob down. Film should only be loaded one way so the knob can be lowered into film canister. Lower knob and Film canister is now secure.
Next thread film leader onto take up spool. Some times these have a slot , but most Just have the teeth that fit the film edge.thread the film into slot then unto teeth. You will need to use film advance arm (There should be an arm on the top opposite side of film knob) you would move that would advance film.
as you move this arm ( with cover open ) film holes should engage the teeth on bottom and top. ( if you can't advance after 1 or 2 advance arm swings) press take picture button ( releases springs).
continue until film is captured top and bottom. Use the film spool knob gently wind film back into canniester until snug don't over wind. Close cover, take a picture with lens cap on, repeat that. As you wind ,the film cartridge knob should rotate.
You are not wasting pictures film was designed for this waste.
you should know how many photos were on film 12/24/36 pictures.
you may have a knob to set to that number.
When your ready to remove film ,push silver button on bottom and use winder handle ,rotating until free and easy. Open cover mention earlier.
wow can't believe I remembered all that and hope that helps.

Film is not developing


There is not any in camera developing. This is not a digital camera it is a film camera wherein we put a film cartridge with a specified number of shots into the camera then thread the film leader to the takeup spool, close the camera advance the film a few frames, then we are ready to shoot. After the specified number of shots, 24 or 36, film is rewound into the canister, camera back opened film canister removed then taken to the lab for processing.

Film problem for my holga


Black film as in underexpose, after you have them printed?

If you open a roll of 120 film:
Remove the little tape holding to the film.
Place film onto Film Spool Studs.
Pull film out from film leader and thread to Take Spool.
Turn until Arrow Line on film aligns with Start Mark of Film Holder.
Close film cover or back.
Advance camera to Zero (0). Now you are ready to shoot.
Just rememer what film speed your are using.

Hope they are helpful.

Kodak moviedeck 475 Film won't thread


There is a small plastic gear that disintegrates with age on these units. The gear is worn and cannot turn the larger gear to thread the film. Good luck finding parts. There is one place that sells parts but I think they gauge the public
