... Canon Elph Z3 APS Point and Shoot Camera

Fuji 500AF doesn't wind film through. The shutter clicks and the camera sounds like it's winding, but no film comes through. I've changed the batteries and film pack without luck.


Check that the gear is catching the film tracks. There could be not enough tension on film. If the gear is not spinning, the internal gears could be broke, fell off, or the glue has worn loose between gear and motor shaft. ... Digital Cameras

I have a problem with my sony cyber-shot dsc T-3. Everything is all right except that there is probably a problem with the lense as the image (on the screen when I want to take a photo or film) is not right (it is pink, dark with lines on it). It is not a problem with the screen, because I can look at my photos / videos which were done before this problem happened. I think it is because I tried to use the camera in a hospital (I had a baby last week) when I was in a surgery room. Maybe too magne

I just recently bought a used minolta autocord tlr. Everything look in perfect working order but my problem began when I finally loaded the film. When the film counter turned 1 the film advance crank suddenly stopped working. I tried to click on the shutter but now it wont open. Even when I finally removed the film. Everything now seemed stuck. Please help. =(

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

Hi, I had a problem with a Sony video camera (HDR-CX6EK) in 2009. The problem then was that the LCD screen interferes when unfolding the screen and when the screen was unfold completely the voltage of the device fell away. They changed 6 parts: 3 for the panel section (MCBRD CK-178, PCBRD FP-737 FLEX, SWITCH BLOCK CONTROL) and 3 for the voltage section. Last week during my vacation i had exactly the same problem as before and I didn't film that much since 2009. Could it be the same p

Tokina AT-X PRO 28-80mm 1:2.8 lens has recently developed a problem when mounted on my Nikon D200. The images are way too dark and my only way to obtain usable images is to bracket heavily. This lens has worked flawlessly on film Nikons and, until recently, worked flawlessly on the D200. I am now also having AF problems with the lens. When I attach any of my Nikon brand lenses - no problems. Can you help? I really love this lens.


I have this lens also but with a canon mount and loved it to death when i had film. I started to use it on the digital and like your experience it worked well for a while then started to produce faulty registered photos.. too dark and some too light. ... Digital Cameras

On my Panasonic NV-GS 120 - in spite of turning on 'wind noise reduction' I still get serious wind noise when filming on the move, eg from trains. If I stick a sponge across the mic should I turn off the wind noise protection or leave it switched on? Thankyou N S Lamb

Dust Orbs I am having serious problems with "Dust Orbs" appearing in pictures. Mostly indoor pictures. These things are ruining my pictures. Are they caused by the Infrared Beam that the camera uses to focus? Or is something else wrong with my camera? Do ALL digital cameras have this problem with dust? Do DSLR have same problem? How come these dust orbs only appear with Digital Cameras, and not film? I need a digital camera that works indoors. Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance....


Many digital cameras have this problem, though it has nothing to do with the camera being digital. It is small specks of dust in the air being illuminated. You will never see this problem without a flash.\015\012\015\012The reason you see it on digit ... Kodak EasyShare DX7440 Digital Camera

After inserting the film inside my camera, I here some whirring inside but the neither the black paper nor any of the pictures are expelled. The film I'm using has long passed its expiry date, so I don't know if the problem is with the camera or the film itself. How can I solve it?


It's the film. The battery is built into the film pack and all film packs are so long out of date that the batteries are either completely dead or very nearly so. In your case, the typical example of a battery having just enough power to eject the co ... Sony Taz Camera Instant Camera

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

Hi, my problem is that i can transfer video film from my video camcorder to my PC.

This sounds like the CCD sensor is faulty ( this is the device that generates picture in both v-cams and normal digital cameras and sits behind the lens ). Playback is fine but no image ( or very 'noisy' image ) in capture mode.\015\012Easy to repair ... Digital Cameras

I have a Praktica sport SK320, Bought from a charity shop. It seems to be working, I have taken some pictures, but I have no idea if there is film inside, I can't see any indication through the tiny window at the back. Does this mean that there is no film loaded. Although it is winding on and flashing? Maybe I should open it to see.I thought that if it wasn't loaded it wouldn't work. Many thanks. Regards Joyce

I have an older (not digital) Canon EOS Rebel 2000 camera. I haven't used it for a couple of years and now when I went to use it I loaded the film. No problem. But after a couple of pictures it rewound all by itself. I did not press the rewind button. I want to use the entire roll of film, not just a couple of exposures. Does anybody know what went wrong? How can I fix this? Thank you. [email protected]
