Hi,

Is it completely stuck in between the rollers, or stuck before the rollers (i.e. not really ejected)?
Were the rollers cleaned before starting to shoot the pack?

The pack may also suffer from the sticky pack disease, please refer to:

And give us some news !

So, problem solved...but now, when i want to take a photo, my camera eject totaly light picture...even if i have set the exposure on the dark part of the wheel. Exist some conditions in which one can i take the pictures ? Or i can take picture everytime and everywhere ? Because from 2 PX680 packs i have got no good photography and i dont know whats wrong.

Hi,

If you use PX680 films with your SX-70 camera, it's quite normal to get overexposed pictures, for PX680 films are made for 600 cameras, of 600 ISO, and your SX-70 is based on a 125 ISO exposure. You have to reduce the amount of light of 2 stops by putting a ND filter either on the lens or on the film pack to get a balanced exposure.

You know I have the same problem !!!
I can take a few pictures with my sx-70
but there's always 2 or 3 pictures stuck in there :(
the camera just buzzes at some point polarf
I don't think it's the sticky pack issue. I tried shooting 2 packs and they both left some pictures in at some point. Help?
