I tried loading a roll of film this afternoon and the camera promptly wound the film back in to the canister. No matter what I do, the camera continues to attempt to rewind the film even if there's no film in it.
I have shut it off and turned it back on, and I've removed the battery and put it back in, but nothing changes.
Has anyone else experienced this problem and if so, were you able to fix it without shipping it off somewhere for repairs?

Re: Stuck in Rewind Mode
Camera is not resetting itself : remove small side pannel by the end that houses back door locking mechanism ( looking from the back it is on the left side ). you will see small slide switch that maybe dislodged . Clean and assamble correctly.

If you are using 120 film (medium format) you only need to advance the film as far as possible. Then remove the film from the camera and wrap the excess paper around the roll and seal.
When you finish all the pictures on the roll of 35mm film you will need to rewind the film completely before exposing it to light. You can do this by taking the camera in a pitch dark room, removing the film and turning the knob on the top of the film roll until the film has been completely wound back into the the roll.
There is a crank located on the top of the camera. Some Lomo's Ive seen have it located on the left, but it will always be on the side of the camera where you placed the film. Many cameras will also have arrows indicating what direction to turn it in order to wind the film back in. If there are no arrows, place your ruined roll of film (or a new roll of film) into the camera, and try winding it with the back open (if you're using a new roll of film, don't roll it all the way in, or you'll waste another roll).
If there is no crank, or it is broken, you can always unload your camera in perfect darkness (no red lights), and wind it back into the canister by hand.
Since you managed to close the back of the camera and shoot, you've placed the actual canister into the camera correctly.
What happened is there are a series of pegs on the left side of the camera, or sometimes just a red indication line, that the film must be placed onto. If you don't lay the film onto this, the camera won't pull the film out of the canister when you shoot, but it will rewind it back into the canister correctly when it thinks you are out of shots. This will result in a blank roll of film.
Did you actually mean shutter release or shutter advance? And to load the film,you need to pull the roll winder upwards. While you pull the winder upwards, it would have a tuck voice and then the back cover would open up. Make sure you have wound the entire roll before you open the back.
If by manual you mean turning a crank to rewind the film, no. If you mean to do it at a point other than the end of the roll, yes.
To rewind film mid-roll, press the two film rewind buttons simultaneously for approximately one second. The film will then rewind and the frame counter will count backward. The film is completely rewound when the E appears in place of the frame number.
The two film rewind buttons are marked with a red film canister symbol with left-pointing arrows. One is the exposure compensation button next to the control panel, the other is the self-timer button next to the mode dial.

That's entirely correct. Your camera winds all of the film out upon loading and each shot then winds the film back into the canister. Your frame counter works in countdown mode telling you how many shots remain rather than how many you've taken.
Many other camera do the same thing. The beauty of it is twofold: if the camera back is accidentally opened, then the shots already taken are safely in the film canister (except for the last shot), also when the film has finished you wait less time for the short length remaining to be rewound rather than the entire roll.

I had a similar problem today with my camera. I'm not an expert on Cannon cameras or any cameras for that matter, but this is what I did to fix the problem.
I removed the bottom cover(has 6 screws i believe) carefully sliding the cover up starting near the battery cover. Holding the camera still I checked what gears I could to make sure they were free, but one small gear that moves up and down was stuck. I applied a very small amount of force to the gear to free it, reattached the cover and all the screws, and BAM! I was back to taking pictures.
Hopes this helps.
p.s if you can't find one of the screws its under the battery cover flap :).
This may be normal. Since I don't know what you have, I can't say. Some camera models are designed to advance the film all at once. then, as you take pics, it winds the film back into the canister, one at a time. If you then open the back of the camera by mistake, you do not expose all your film. Some early Canon Sureshots had that feature. If your camera keeps trying to advance the film past the end of the roll, have it fixed or replace it.
push the rewind button on the bottom of the camera, then turn the rewind knob to the right to rewind any film that may be in the camera. Lift the rewind knob up to open the back door. remove the film canister if there.
on the new film canister pull enough film to reach the take up spool. attach the leader to the spool and close the back door, advance the film to counter number 1. enjoy.
There is no rewind. When the camera loads the film, it pulls it out all the way. Each time it takes a shot, it rewinds the frame back into the can. At the end of the roll the leader is wound back into the can. As soon as you hear the motor stop, you can just open it and take out the film.
