Question about Canon EOS Elan 7ne 35mm SLR Camera
I cannot seem to get the film to load correctly in this camera. I follow the instructions and turn the camera on and I hear all the right advancing noises but then I see the blinking film canister in the LCD panel which is supposed to indicate that the film has been rewound. Hmmmm. Any ideas? I am using Kodak 400 speed 36 exposure film, not that that may mean anything. Any info appreciated and thank you in advance.
Simple, the film counter unit has plastic gears underneath. the gear position or gear has worned out. simply replace the counter unit and adjust. This can be performed by any local repair shop for less than $100. -James. for further assistance email, go to www.camerarepairjapan.com

Hi, all canon EOS digital cameras can take all EF lenses. An EF lens from 1989 will fit a Digital body from 2009.
The newer EF-S lenses will only work with the smaller APS-C size sensors on the cheaper consumer bodies.
Hope this answers your query, please take the time to rate!

The rewind switch is stuck. You will need to replace it or remove & clean it. replacing it is easier to do than tearing apart for they break so easily

The auto-rewind is triggered when the film advance mechanism detects tension on the film, indicating the end of the roll.
It could be a couple of things causing the problem...
1) The particular roll of film you were using was wound too tight, or has got some moisture in it causing it to stick.
2) If it has done this with various rolls of film, it is likely that the clutch mechanism that detects the film tension is out of adjustment. This is something that a professional camera repair shop will be about to fix for you.
I'm not familiar with this particular model of camera, but there may be a facility to turn off the auto-rewind as a short-term fix.
Hope this helps!
