Advice on Film Cameras

10 Oct 2018 6:57PM
Just looking for some advice!
I have a canon t70, and itís all been working fine but as of last night, when I take a photo, it sounds like itís struggling to forward on the film? I have changed batteries and itís the same? Any ideas?

Well if itís not dodgy/dirty battery contacts then itís probably beyond mere mortals to fix...

Then one must decide whether a repair(?) cost is worth it, compared with buying another second-hand...sorry....Ēpre-lovedĒ....device..!

With fault finding it is essential to work through a logical process. I would first check the way the film is loaded and whether the film runs smoothly as this might eliminate a camera fault, the price of a film is much the cheapest part too.
Try another film before you go down the expensive road of having the camera repaired or replaced.
