Take the lens cap off of the front of the camera.

Make sure that there is still film remaining in the roll.

Check if the film is inserted correctly in the camera without jams. Clean the dust out of the film chamber with a blower brush if necessary. The film pressure plate and film guide may also have to be cleaned. To do this, use a blower brush to blow dust away. Then wipe the surface lightly with lens cleaning paper moisturized with lens cleaning fluid. Look for a film symbol on the LCD to see if the camera recognizes the film.

Make sure the camera is focused by holding the shutter button half way. The viewfinder should also show a blinking focus lamp. If it doesn't focus in automatic mode, try focusing in manual mode.

The shutter curtain or mirror may be stuck in an opened or closed position. Check for obstructions.

Photos develop unusually

Take the lens cap off of the front of the camera before taking pictures.

Try to keep the camera steady when taking photos to reduce blur. Consider using a tripod.

If the film was exposed in open light or was hit by x-rays, the film may not develop correctly.

If photos develop with unusual specs or lines, the camera lens, mirror, and/or focusing screen may have dust or dirt. Clean the mirror and focusing screen by using a blower brush reserved for this purpose only. If that doesn't work, it is highly recommended to have a professional clean it. If you insist on cleaning it yourself, use a lint free anti-static cloth with lens cleaning fluid. In extremely gentle circular motions that barely touch the surface, pick up the dust or debris. To clean the lens, use a blower brush to get some dust off. Then use lens cleaning paper moistened with lens cleaning fluid to gently wipe the lens. Use a careful spiral cleaning motion from the center of the lens to the outside edge.

''Camera doesn't auto focus when in auto focus mode, but can manually focus when in manual focus mode."
