SOURCE: nikon n75 problem loading film
I have (had) the same problem. I came onto this site to find out what I can do to fix it. It didn't help. I got pissed and almost threw the camera away. So I decided to get a little rough with the camera, (i normally wouldn't do this but i was going to throw it away).
I loaded the film like normal but before I closed the back I manually wound the film around the opposite spool. I guess I fooled the camera into thinking it had already wound the film.
When I closed the back of the camera everything worked fine.
I then snapped off the pics the camera said were left.
After this first role, I loaded the next role like normal. The camera worked like a charm!
By the way...the mirror dropped back down when I manually wound the film around the spool.
I hope this works...if it doesn't make any sense feel free to email me with any questions..

take the screws off the bottom cover. there is a small lever pointing toward the front of camera with a black screw on it. gently move it to the left, this will release the lock lever. Now advance the lever and the shutter should fire. if not, it is not repairable. no parts

Make sure the battery lid is securely screwed on, The meter wont work before the '1' frame. i just found out last week about this. make several clicks till the '1' mark appears, now check the meter if its working. [A] - aperture prio

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

I had a similar problem today with my camera. I'm not an expert on Cannon cameras or any cameras for that matter, but this is what I did to fix the problem.
I removed the bottom cover(has 6 screws i believe) carefully sliding the cover up starting near the battery cover. Holding the camera still I checked what gears I could to make sure they were free, but one small gear that moves up and down was stuck. I applied a very small amount of force to the gear to free it, reattached the cover and all the screws, and BAM! I was back to taking pictures.
Hopes this helps.
p.s if you can't find one of the screws its under the battery cover flap :).
