To open back cover lift knob on top of camera ( this knob has a small arm that unfolds - used in rewinding). Once open you will see which side is the film side ( under this knob) and the take up side. On the film side raise the knob again in order to insert film case, the top of this should flip over later used to rewind film. with film trail out toward back of camera. Now push the knob down. Film should only be loaded one way so the knob can be lowered into film canister. Lower knob and Film canister is now secure. Next thread film leader onto take up spool. Some times these have a slot , but most Just have the teeth that fit the film edge.thread the film into slot then unto teeth. You will need to use film advance arm (There should be an arm on the top opposite side of film knob) you would move that would advance film. as you move this arm ( with cover open ) film holes should engage the teeth on bottom and top. ( if you can't advance after 1 or 2 advance arm swings) press take picture button ( releases springs). continue until film is captured top and bottom. Use the film spool knob gently wind film back into canniester until snug don't over wind. Close cover, take a picture with lens cap on, repeat that. As you wind ,the film cartridge knob should rotate. You are not wasting pictures film was designed for this waste. you should know how many photos were on film 12/24/36 pictures. you may have a knob to set to that number. When your ready to remove film ,push silver button on bottom and use winder handle ,rotating until free and easy. Open cover mention earlier. wow can't believe I remembered all that and hope that helps.
Get a heavy coat and zip it shut, take it and the camera into the darkest room in your home, put the camera in the coat and reach through the sleeves backwards, Grab the camera and open it and take out the film, wind it back into the cannisteer by hand.
Try holding the camera upside down to see if it slides back into place. If that doesn't work, imagine that there is a film in there and wind it back like you would to take the film out, this may put the shaft back into place? Good luck.
Sorry to hear about this issue. If you have a change bag, I would put a few jewelers screwdrivers in it then put the camera in it. With the bag closed up I would attempt to forcibly open the back. With the camera in the bag there is not any chance to expose the film. After the film is removed wind it back into the cartridge. Now send it off for developing.
The film may not be feeding to the take up spool properly. If that is so, there should be flashing symbol something like this: O_ _ _ _ . If that is the error you are seeig , open the back and re-insert your film. You may lose a couple of frames.
Pull up on the rewind knob ( left side ) to open the film door. put film cassette in chamber then lower rewind knob and pull enough film leader to the take up spool. attach film to spool. close the film door then advance the film to #1 on the counter.
Hey buddy5000, The process to load film into your camera is as follows 1. Turn the camera on and make sure the frame counter reads 0 if it doesn't there is probably film in the camera. 2. Press the film door release button and slide the release downward. 3. Place the new film cartridge in the film cartridge chamber and pull out the film leader until it reaches the red dot on the bottom right side of the film chamber. Make sure the holes on the lower edge of the film engage the teeth on the sprocket. 4. Now close the back door and the film should load automatically and# 1 should appear in the frame counter, and if it does not then the film is not loaded properly. I hope this helps!

First check the batteries. Are they fully charged? If you still have the same problem, try this:
Is the film (that which did not rewind fully) still in the camera? If so, open the film chamber door once in a dark room and close it again. Try to rewind the film again. This could possibly be the result of the film getting stuck somewhere, preventing the camera from rewinding it.
