Question about Nikon N70 35mm SLR Camera
It does not load the film properly, placing a new one and closing the back door and then shooting does not advance the film. Trying to find a solution, in a shop they loaded a testing film, it advances but only once each two shots.
No, it is not the battery. My guess is that the film leader did not stay in the take-up spool and is now bunched up around it. Try rewinding the film carefully as you normally would but remember that you are only rewinding a small portion of the length. You can even just open the film door and start over. You will only loose 3 or 4 frames on the roll.

One thing that can happen with the V is that the oring on the release lever gets dry. This can cause the release to stick in the down position. If it was in the down position and you tried to advance the wind arm, it may be jammed internally. The only way to fix this problem requires dis-assembly of the camera. There are sites with info on this or I can help you here. If this might not be the problem, try releasing the shutter in the M90 mode.

Do you press the shutter button to release the lever for the next photo? That's how you advance the film from the exposure to light, when first insterting the film.

Bad news. I have an EM on the junk pile for a similar reason. In my case, the lever stuck and when I tried to advance the film, the plastic on the top of the camera body fractured and the whole mechanism separated. The current E-bay price on an EM body is under $30. Since the EM was made out of plastic, it is not repairable. If you have several lenses, it will be worth the low cost.
I have had Nikons of various models for over 50 years and in my opinion, until they fail such as your has, the EM is probably the most comfortable non-professional 35mm camera to hold and use that Nikon ever made.

Check the batteries first. The electromagnetic shutter requires power to function. To free up the shutter and advance lever, rotate the command switch to "M90" (if I recall). That should re-set the shutter and allow you to advance the lever mechanically.
