My N65 won't allow me to shoot an entire roll of film. I'll load a brand new roll into the camera, then I'll shoot anywhere between 3 and 7 exposures, then all of a sudden the camera rewinds the film as if I'm at the end of my roll.
Typically, I use 24-exposure film. Someone suggested simply replacing the batteries with new ones, but the problem persisted after I took THAT advice. I've asked around a couple places, but no one else seems to have any potential solutions. Please help!!!
If you are using dx coded film,and still the problem persist,the problem is inside advance mechanism,either it is sticky (moisture)or some gear problem,if you're not qualified to do so,pls have it check by service center.
The only thing that I could think of when I read your situation is, that you might not be using a DX coated films. see, the camera reads the bar code on the film and maybe it is not the same program. check the camear manual and make sure you are using the same kind of the suggested film in the manual. good luck

Solution: Repair or replace auto-rewind system. Cause: The built in auto-rewind system that supposed to work when film is finished but because it is faulty it receives wrong signal when film is lloaded. So the camera thinks the film is at the end of the roll. Possible cost: $65-$75
It means "Film remains in the camera after film rewind complete."
If this is happening after shooting, the remedy is simple: open the camera and remove the film. If this is happening right after loading the film, then you've got a more serious problem: the camera is rewinding the film upon loading.
the roll sensor is not reading the silver code on the film roll.
Open the camera when you have no film in it.
Clean the film roll slot where the "fingers" are.
These fingers touch the case of the film roll to determine the film type, which includes the number of exposures. You nmay have to "adjust" the fingers so that they make good contact with the film roll case.
Look at different rolls of film, notice the silver blocks are different. If the roll has a "dent" on it, it can't be sensed correctly.
I would suggest you buy an off-brand roll of 12 or 24 exposures. Run it through the camera taking snaps of anything -- but make sure you vary the lighting, ISO, shutter speed, aperture, etc. as you snap the pics. Don't worry too much about composition. This roll is a quick test, NOT for photos to keep.
Have the film developed and then follow-up with comments on the results. I'll gladly assist you further at that time. Char1ieJ
remove the battery and check that it is good. replace battery and open back door, close the door and it should run the motor / transport. if so, load film up to the drive sprocket being sure film will catch on the sprocket.
or move the latch holding back cover, and open the door fully. check the pressure plate on the door, gently pull the plate up a little to increase pressure on the film. bring the holding lever out toward the latch and close the door to lock the lever back to position.
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.
Wait till night. Go to a room. Draw all the curtains and switch off all lights. Now you have a dark room. Make sure you can't even see your own fingers! Pop the camera film cover. Pull out the film and rewind manually.
