Shutter stuck hey guys, i've had my camera since '01 and it's worked just fine... but i went to take some pics the other day and when i reloaded the film the shutter gets stuck when i take a picture... it closes and takes aaalllooot of time to open again (this was while taking pictures outside in the middle of the day, so lighting shouldn't be a problem). The screen comes up with the message BC... i can't find my manual... can you help??

Not sure about the 'BC', but the shutter problem is most likely due to shutter oil leakage. do you see some shiny black oil on the edges of the shutter blinds? i've had this happen to me once and the repair shop managed to clean it. seems like a problem that bugs Canon EOS cams. Replacing the shutter would most definitely cost more than the value of the camera, so you might want to try this

Camera will not accept film. I added a new roll of film and it says there isn't any film in the camera. It worked fine the last time I used it..


I am guessing that you just do not have enough lead in the sprocket to catch the film. Try reeling out a half in more film and reloading. If that does not fit the excess film just trim it a bit and try over.

Film is not ejecting


If the batteries are ok, and you have followed the instruction manual to the letter then I would sugest you take it back from where you got it?

Why is my canon ae-1 only developing blank film


First thing I would do is sacrifice a roll of film. Load the film as you have been. Then with the back open and tension on the film (do not touch the film over the shutter, advance the film. It may be that you are putting the film on the takeup spool incorrectly. Watch how the film advances on the spool. If it is on the spool incorrectly it will disconnect then not advance. If that does not work it may be a errant takeup spool.

Cannot load the film


Check the battery. Sounds like your camera doesn't have enough power to operate the film advance function.

Camera won't work, has an E on the display


If E blinks in the exposure counter, the film is improperly loaded. Reload the film.

Her is the link to the Olympus website where you can download the instruction manual

Cant open camera to get film out


Hey stupid 01,
To open your camera back you need to pull up on the rewind lever knob (on the left side of the camera with the lens pointing away from you), and the camera back should pop open. Before you do this make sure your film has been rewound back into the film canister or you will ruin your images.

Sincerely,
Allan

Minolta maxxum 5 jammed film-chamber lock


i just found it after looking at the manual again. it didn't work for me but maybe it will work for you.
go to http://ca.konicaminolta.com/support/manuals/film-cameras/film_af_slr/dynax_5/dynax_5_inst_e.pdf
and page 61 (actually page 121 of the manual but page 61 if you type in the page at the bottom of acrobat reader).
when i tried this it made the noise that it wanted to unlock but it didn't.
good luck!

Problems inserting film


The camera is suppose to do this. I have this camera as well, and even in the manual it talks about this. I automatically advances the film to the last frame and then works backwards.
