The camera is made to this. I have this camera, and in the manual it explains this a little more thoroughly. It automatically advances to the last frame, then works backwards. Not sure why, but this is normal for this camera.

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.

When I insert a new roll of film into my Canon Rebel S 35mm SLR, it automatically rewinds the film instead of winding it onto the spool. I can't figure out why it's doing this.

this is normal, as these cameras are designed to wind the entire film to the take up spool then as you expose the file will roll back into the cassette. this was a feature that canon devised to protect already exposed film when the back cover is inadvertantly opened.

Can't rewind film

It should automatically rewind when the roll is at the end. For mid-roll rewind press both the rewind buttons simultaneously for about 1 sec and the film will rewind.

New roll of film rewinds instead of advancing

Your camera has a faulty winding mechanism. It suppose to rewind in the end of the film when there are tension present but somehow the detecting system in your winding mechanism is detecting when the back door is closed. Remedy is replacing the clutch system within winding mechanism. Average repair runs about $90. -James. For further assistance by email, go to

My nikon n55 is flashing err after installing new film

It could be that your camera doesn't know it's rewound the film already. With the camera turned on, push and hold BOTH manual rewind buttons simultaneously - one near the release button ( +/- ) and the other toward the front of the camera at the lens release button. Try the release button again.

Film rewind

For some reason the camera thinks it is at the end of the roll. You could turn off auto rewind, Custom Menu #1, to 0. This issue could manifest itself in cold weather as well, film becomes too stiff causing drag tripping the auto rewind. Call Nikon Film 1-800-645-6687. The camera may need to go in for CLA.

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.

Premature Film Rewinding

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
