Attempting to take a shot, but buzzes, followed by beeping.

Just picked up a Canon T70 from a thrift store, and wanted to test it out. When I initially checked to see if it would take shots, it just buzzed. After the buzzing finished, the camera would beep repeatedly.

The battery level appears to be fine, although I have not had the chance to replace them. Looking online, I heard that it could be that the motor has seized up.

Does anyone have any experience opening up one of these cameras and adjusting/lubing the gears? Any tips?

Have a working one. After a long time in storage, motor sounded like it was agonizing to advance the film, but after 2-3 rolls of films it went back to the happy sound I remembered from its youth. So motor seizing up could be an issue.

I also have another T70 I just got for future use as spares, same problem as nuget48. I downloaded the service manual (google for it, its freely available) that shows how to get to the motor. I will first try to move things from the outside - nudge the rubber take up reel to see if I can free anything, and if its not helpful will try to get to the motor when I have some free time, I will let you know if the problem was solved.

Another thought: since the shutter did not operate as well, it could be stuck on that. maybe I should first check the shutter.

anyway I will have something to play with :-)

I know it has been over six years, but I, and many others have this exact issue. Could you update us on the spares camera?
