Question about Photography
I took the old film out (never exposed, but out of date. Now I can't load a new film as it keeps being rewond. Camera confused.
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

SOURCE: Camera Rewinds New Roll of Film
Check the camera and the manual to see if there is a control to override the auto rewind; it may be set to rewind. Other than that, check Mikon's website for support info.

You don't need to open the camera to change the film. The battery door is on the other end. You open the door by inserting the protrusion on the plastic end piece of the strap into the slot of the battery door. It takes a small 3 volt battery.

Pull up the film rewind knob to open the back.
Drop the cartridge into the well on the left and, while rotating the rewind knob, push it back down to secure the cartridge.
Pull the leader across and insert it into any of the slots in the takeup spool.
Make sure the film perforations engage the sprocket teeth.
Alternately wind the film lever and press the shutter button until the perforations on both edges of the film engage the sprocket teeth.
Close the camera back, making sure it latches.
Take up the film slack by rotating the rewind knob in the direction of the arrow until you feel resistance.
Make blank exposures until the counter shows "1".
There's a fuller, illustrated set of instructions in the manual, which you can download from http://www.butkus.org/chinon/nikon.htm

To rewind the film on your camera you push down on the rewind handle on the top left of the camera (as viewed from behind) and turn the rewind handle clockwise until no more resistance is felt.
Once the film has been rewound, slide down the catch on the left edge of the camera body and open the door on the back of the camera.
Courtesy of alfredklomp.com you can download part one of the manual here and part two here.
If after all this, the camera is broken then it cannot usually be repaired: it's designed and built as cheaply as possible as a toy camera and is only designed to last for a few rolls of film. Spare parts are not available, but some broken parts can be adapted or fabricated from whatever is to hand to do the job.
