Canon Elan rewinds prematurely?? Help!

I own a Canon Elan II. The problem I'm having is that sometimes the camera will rewind a new roll of film after only 2 or 3 photos are taken. Any ideas on what is causing this?

The camera back button requires power to operate and as the electronics seem to be fried button pushing doesn't open the door. So is there a manual access way? thanks


I had a Canon Elan IIe and I don't recall having to have electronics to open the camera back.
Make sure you have a battery in it, turn it on look at the LCD panel and see if it has film in it.
If so you should be able to push the "mid roll" film rewind button located on the back left side it shows a film canister icon. Once the film has rewound into the canister release the back with the mechanical latch found on the left side (while facing the back of the camera) just push it down and the back will pop open. Those cameras are pretty darn good and the only thing I've seen friy the electronics is using an "old" type flash on the hot shoe and that takes the flash circuit board and melts the thing. I'd expect the camera battery is dead and you can't rewind the film back into the canister.

I have a 36 exposure film in the camera with 25 pictures taken and I want to remove the film without taking more photos. How do I rewind?


To rewind the film mid-roll, press the two film rewind buttons simultaneously for one second. The two buttons are marked with a red film symbol, and double as the Auto Exposure Bracketing button to the left of the viewfinder and the Aperture/Exposure Compensation button to the right of the control panel.

The film is completely rewound when a blinking "E" shows in the control panel.

Camera does not rewind after end of film it spins, but does not engage the film. Joe M.


it is likely that this model of camera spins the entire roll onto the take-up spool, and then slowly rewinds one frame at a time until the last picture is taken. Then it has already almost rewound,

This shows up when you load the film. The cameras digital counter counts up to the number of pictures available, and counts downward each picture taken.

I may have loaded film roll that has already been taken?


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.

Film rolls back automaticaly


The camera shouldn't be doing this, assuming you're using 36 exposure (or 24 exposure) film. You may want to set a custom function to prevent automatic rewind -- you would have to rewind the film yourself by pressing the rewind button.

To do this:
1. Under the palm grip, press the 'CF' (custom function) button.
2. Use the main dial to select 'F1' in the LCD. It should show a '0' below the 'F1'.
3. Press the 'CF' button to change the '0' to a '1'.
4. Press the shutter button half way to save the change and exit the custom function setting mode.

If you want to stop the rewind with the film leader still exposed (film doesn't rewind entirely into the cannister), use the same steps but set custom function 'F2' to a value of '1'.

Auto rewind problem


There are 2 things that can cause that problem. Many times it is caused by the user pulling too much film out of the film cartridge and laying it across the film plane, causing it to bunch up on the take-up roller when the camera back is closed.

Make sure the film tip extends no further than the orange indicator in the back of the camera.

If that is not the cause, there is probably a defect in the clutch that flips back and forth each time the camera winds the film. Sometimes they bind up and cause the camera to go into the rewind mode early. It would need to be looked at by a qualified camera technician to determine if that is the problem.

The film automatically loads then rewinds when a new film canister is added


Hm. Well, the way this camera works is actually very clever. When you first load a film into it, it winds the entire film out of the cassette and into the camer. As each shot is taken, the film is rewound back into the film cassette. The advantage of this is that if the back of the camera is accidentally opened, the shots which have already been taken are already safely back in the film cassette and will not be damaged by the light ingress. However, your camera is behaving strangely. I would check that the electrical contacts where the film cassette goes in are clean. You can clean them using a cotton bud moistened with methylated spirits.
