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.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

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.
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.
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.

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 :).
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.
Usually when you finish exposing a roll of film, you rewind it until you are sure it is all wound into the cassette. There is a change in the sound as the end of the roll leaves the camera. An exposed roll would have no film sticking out of the cassette. A new unexposed roll will have a bit of film sticking out of the cassette to pull across the ack to the take up roll.
It sounds like you have a jam.
When you have finished taking shots and have used all the film, you must press the film-rewind button on the underside of the camera; this does not rewind the film, but allows you to commence the next step.
Once you have done this, flip up the rewind-crank on the top left hand side of the camera. It is situated on top of the film speed dial. turn this clockwise until all the film is back in its cartridge.
You should now be able to open the back of the camera.
I hope you have fun with your t50!
I have (had) the same problem. I came onto this site to find out what I can do to fix it. It didn't help. I got pissed and almost threw the camera away. So I decided to get a little rough with the camera, (i normally wouldn't do this but i was going to throw it away).
I loaded the film like normal but before I closed the back I manually wound the film around the opposite spool. I guess I fooled the camera into thinking it had already wound the film.
When I closed the back of the camera everything worked fine.
I then snapped off the pics the camera said were left.
After this first role, I loaded the next role like normal. The camera worked like a charm!
By the way...the mirror dropped back down when I manually wound the film around the spool.
I hope this works...if it doesn't make any sense feel free to email me with any questions..
Quick solution: force a manual rewind.
1. Remove film
2. Close camera back.
3. With the power turned on, press the two rewind buttons together. They are marked in red.
4. The camera will make a rewind sound and will stop after about 2 seconds.
5. DO NOT fire the shutter yet.
6. Put the mode on Manual and select a fast shutter speed like 1/90 sec. Any aperture will do.
7. Load the film correctly as given in the user's manual.
8. As you close the camera back, the film will prewind to the end of roll. At the end of the roll pre-wind the LCD will show you the total number of frames available.
9. Select any shooting mode.
10. Go on and take pictures.
