Film doesn't "snap" into place in film compartment - Olympus is-1
Film would "snap" into place when inserting a new roll, one day it stopped snapping and film is not secure in the film compartment. Can this be fixed? A piece of cardboard of something similar can be wedged between the film and the housing to hold the film in place, but I'd rather fix it if that's possible.

dude...really? if it's film for a camera....you need to get digital....I'd say that as for the 2 defect rule....someone has yanked your chain pal. ....
It's 3 defects per 2 inches...If you unroll 80 feet of film meant to be used in a calculator.......a calculator......it must be an MI6 calculator that snaps photos of the user every time he hits the = key......let's say you did unroll 80 feet of film....and you were in a dark room doing it.....there might be a problem rolling the film back up correctly after unrolling 80' of the super 100,000 snap shot roll. Ya think?
Don't take this wrong....it really is a jab to your kidney....
If you're saying that you have accidentally wound the film leader of an unused film back into the canister, then you need a film leader retriever (also known as a leader picker).
The tool costs typically around £6 plus shipping, so it's usually cheaper just to buy another film, but if you ask nicely at a camera shop (not many of those left!) then if they have one they might help you for free. Especially if you're buying stuff like films/processing from them.
Confirm tht DX shows in LCD. If not then press and hold shift button then press ISO so "DX" appears.Open Camera Back. Insert film cartridge, pull film leader out to right and align with red index mark (inside film chamber on right). Make sure there is no slack in leader.Close camera back until lock release snaps closed. Fully depress shutter until film advances to first frame.
Confirm " 1" and film transport show in LCD. If Film is not loaded correctly, "ERR" show on LCD. Open cack and reload film.

Well it is not a big problem. Visit a photo studio and tell then to for leaf out of the roll and load it in your camera. You can't take out that starting point of the roll at home. Because you don't have the small machine. After that put the roll back in your camera.
Now i am going to say most important things.
click few (4-5) snaps using a cover in front of your lens. Then click normally for taking photos.
You can check the shutter without film in the camera. Remove the lens and open the film door. You will see the cloth curtains of the shutter in the center. Advance the film lever to **** the shutter and set the speed dial to a slower speed like 1/15. Hold the camera so it is aimed a a light source, (a window will do) and fire the shutter. You should see the light through the shutter for the time duration is is set to. (1/15). If you see the light source, repeat the process going up one speed setting until you reach 1/1000. If you see the shutter open and close as described, then try another roll. After you load the film and close the back door, make note of what the rewind knob is doing as you advance the film. It should spin counter-clockwise each time. That is a easy test to know that the film is traveling in the camera properly. Vary your exposures with the new roll at different speeds and f-stops. You should get exposures, but if not let us know.
I haven't heard of this camera, but most film cameras have a display somewhere that will show you how many have been taken. They don't usually show how many are left because film rolls can have anywhere from 12-36 pictures on them. If you are unsure about how many the roll of film had, you should assume it was a 24 exposure roll. 24 is the most common. If it doesn't have a number anywhere that you can see, you should take pictures until it stops winding.
If the film has been in the camera for a long time, it's probably better to just unload it and have it developed anyway. Film goes stale after a year or so for most films, so you may not have any good pictures on it anyway.
Hope this helps, if not make a comment with more information and I'll see if I can find a manual online for your camera. I'll need model number and as much more info as you can give.
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
Did you try pushing the shutter button? It may already be wound. Otherwise, try pushing the rewind button in and holding it while you wind the lever. Now, it MAY be that your at the end of the roll-what does your counter say?
