Having problems with your Ansco Digital Cameras ?

How do I open the film compartment on my Ansco Memar Pronto?


Answers :

If you look on the left side (held up like you're taking a picture),\012there's a strip that's black and silver. On the bottom of the strip is\012a really small, very hard to see tab that kind of blends in with the\012strip- push down on it with a fingernail and the back should pop open.\012Not sure about the one without the Pronto, though.

Camera problem My daughter just received a new HP635 camera for her birthday. At first the camera worked fine, but after a few minutes of use, the camera started flashing the welcome screen repeatedly and the zoom lense would move in and out over and over until we opened the battery storage compartment of the camera.

Nikon FM: Shutter release button will not allow me to take another photo and I'm only on frame 15 of a roll of 24. The film advance lever does not move the film, but it does open all the way to the right & shows the lights on inside (so the battery is OK). I changed the battery just in case, but that didn't solve the problem. I'm wondering if the film somehow came undone inside.


The FM is a mechanical camera, the batteries only power the metering system. Sometimes what happens is when you buy film say in 4 roll packages, they give you 3 24 exps and a 12 exp. I suggest that you rewind the roll and check this. You will only ... Nikon Digital Cameras
