Question about Canon EOS Rebel GII with 35-80 lens 35mm Film Camera

1 Answer

Film Loading Error

I had placed a roll of film in my Canon Rebel film camera, and when I closed the door, it did not begin prewinding as it should have. Thinking that maybe I was going crazy and I just didn't hear it, I decided to take a test shot. When I clicked the botton to take a picture, I heard a long lasting, unhealthy film winding sound. Also the film icon was flashing. I took the camera in the dark room so I could open the back and reload the film, but the film was gone, and the roll was empty. I'm thinking the film is somewhere tangled inside my camera; it has to be somewhere in there. I have never had a problem with this camera before. I have had it for only a year. What should I do?

This also happens to Yashicas often. (though instead of stirpping the film, it will rewind it back into the roll. Something's wrong with either the firmware or the drive system. It'll need to be taken to a camera repair shop, or you'll have to send it back to Canon for warranty service, if it's still within warranty.

Film rewinds when loaded


Align film leader at mark, then close the camera back for prewind loading. Film rewinds as each shot is exposed. Built-in motor for automatic winding/rewinding. Film advance: Automatic. Single-frame and continuous (1 fps). Automatically rewinds film leader into cartridge when designated number of frames have been exposed (midroll rewind available).

Why won't the film load?


There can be a few reasons.
  • Have you tried fresh batteries
  • Have you pulled the film to the right so when the door closes it pushes the film on to the sprockets?
  • Do you hear a sound as though it is or is not loading.

Camera keeps sucking the film back into the canister instead of loading it


Check the bottom DX pin in the film chamber. These get bent easily and it is also used for the film detect switch so that the camera knows there is film in the camera.

When I insert a new roll of film into my Canon Rebel S 35mm SLR, it automatically rewinds the film instead of winding it onto the spool. I can't figure out why it's doing this.


this is normal, as these cameras are designed to wind the entire film to the take up spool then as you expose the file will roll back into the cassette. this was a feature that canon devised to protect already exposed film when the back cover is inadvertantly opened.

New film will not advance when loaded?


It is because the camera mechanics cand reach the film sprockets, open it, and make shure film reaches the red spot in the loading mecanism, tri to pull a inch more and close door, thet should be it.
