Film is stuck half way through the film slot
I put in a new film cartridge… and you know the first black cover that’s supposed to come out before taking any pictures? IT GOT STUCK
Firstly don’t take out the cartridge or try to, this could expose the film, which isn’t what you want to do, otherwise it will kinda like activate the film. But that might be the only way out, and you most likely have tried to do that.
The Film roller may have malfunctioned, there is a mechanical roller in the camera which is used to eject film from the camera. You could always try to slowly pull the black film cover from the slot. I am not entirely sure on how to help you, but if it is new, then get a refund. I’m am not sure what condition your camera is in (battery wise) but you may need a new battery?
If you do want to just open the camera and pull the cartridge out, do it in a very dark place so that the film won’t get exposure and so that it can be usable.
Hope this was use-full, and I wish you luck!!
Hey I had this same issue this was a real struggle for me first I changed the battery’s and that could be your issue but if that does not work I took the screws out of the sides of my camera and took out the film that way you have to be really careful but it should get the job done
I have experienced the same problem. At the end it turned out to be a battery issue; so indeed change the batteries while the device is still "on".
I did open the camera (remove all screws) to pull out the cardridge and the black cover; but it was not so easy (at end the end useless, since all lights stayed blinking). The blinking only stopped after a new (third) set of batteries.
