Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Canon ft-qi the film advance is locked up. is this fixable?


Answers :

If the feed is turning freely then there is a broken catch, was anything rattling inside before you opened it up. Sometime when little plastic pieces break they break cleanly and it's difficult to see if something was there before. I would look to eBay for parts or even a dead (electronically) camera that you could pull the parts from. Good Luck!
The FT QL came with the quick load feature (QL) and the film advance is controlled by an interneal mechanism ... it can be repaired and is well worth doing so as this is a great little camera .... a common issue is a brocken piece of film getting lodged in the lowere end of the feed mechanism ... check for this and remove anything you find ... otherwise bring it into the shop

I own a Canon GL2 Video Camcorder. While in the Camera Position, it appears on the view screen two horizontal white lines, one on top (1/4" from the top) and the other on the bottom of the screen about 1/4" from the bottom. Even though it does not affect the end result. It makes it very difficult to film as the lines don't allow me to center (align properly) the subject I want to film. Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to provide.

CANT WRITE TO UNLOCKED SD CARD I've tried repeatedly to write files to various sd memory cards in my ZS1 and it always gives me the message that the card is locked and can't be written. The cards are UNlocked physically, and I have no trouble writing to them when they are inside other cameras (Canon & Fuji). Is this a defect of the Panasonic or is it fixable?

Everything seems to function well, actually, I've never used this camera. Got if off of ebay, so maybe I was gypped. Anyways, the film advance lever seems to be stuck. It only goes half way. I can put film in, and take it out. I haven't gotten batteries for it yet. If it helps, the frame count is on 's'. So, my only problem is the film advance lever. Is it broken....?!?????!??!


If the lever won't advance even when there is no film in the camera, then I would say there is a problem. (p.s. You haven't told us the make and model) ... Digital Cameras

Have an olympus trip 600 new out of the box. After loading film the red lite worked and I manually advanced film to # 1, pushed the shutter button and flash went off but film did not advance. Now only the rewind works. Considering the low cost of the camera is it worth having it repaired?

I'm assuming the slide switch on the side of the card is in the correct position. In order for a card to work in a particular camera, it must first be formatted in that camera. This completely erases it so download any pictures still on it to your co ... Digital Cameras
