Rollei A110

Postby Will » Mon May 19, 2014 8:36 pm

Does anyone know if the film door opens mechanically or electronically? I cannot open the door but it has no battery yet so I cant tell.

The film door opens mechanically.

Slide the camera open and turn it upside down. You'll see a drawing of a 110 film cartridge. Press on the orange part of the drawing near the sliding portion and pull outward. The door will flip open.

The battery is a PX27 5.6-volt. The replace is 6 volts, which should be close enough.

I've recorded a short video showing how to open the camera. It doesn't matter if there is a battery in the camera.

If you cannot open the film door, then there might be a problem with the camera.

Mike, your video makes it look positively simple! Thanks. I must dig mine out from a cupboard somewhere. I had my A110 for several years before I filed it away as unusable because I could not find the battery compartment. Now I know. :)
