Go into a darkened bedroom, dive under the thickest covers you can muster, with the camera. Open the camera back. You can now remove the cassette and unwind the film from the take-up spool (press the rewind button to free it) and wherever it has got caught up. Using the spindle on the cassette, wind the film back into the cassette. Now you can get out from under the covers and breathe again! Examine the camera mechanism to see if there's anything obviously untoward. Take it back to the camera shop & get them to check it out for you. If necessary, buy a cheap roll of film, put it through the camera until it jams (you can repeat this several times with the same roll if necessary). Then you can open the back in daylight & see what's going wrong - or, again, take it to the shop for help. They may want to send it for repair like that: if so send it with a note that the film is trashed & they can just open the back in daylight.

Film rewinds when loaded

Align film leader at mark, then close the camera back for prewind loading. Film rewinds as each shot is exposed. Built-in motor for automatic winding/rewinding. Film advance: Automatic. Single-frame and continuous (1 fps). Automatically rewinds film leader into cartridge when designated number of frames have been exposed (midroll rewind available).

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.

My film advance lever is stuck. pushed button under camera didn't work

You may have hit the end of the film. Rewind the film back to the spool until the very end gets back in the shell.
If you think you still have unexposed film do the following. Rewind about 1-2 full rotations. Cover the lens using the cap. We're doing this so that step 2.3 will not spoil your last pictures. Take 2 shots (with the lens cover). This time the button at the button should have popped out.

My Canon AE-1 Program will not rewind. I shot the whole roll, rewound a little, and then accidentally opened the back cover. The counter reset to S, and the rewind crank just unscrews when I try to...

I think you have already ruined the film except the frames that are rewind back to the film cartridge.
You can take the film out from the camera, push in the rewind button at the bottom, pull out the film from the film take up reel.
On the film cartridge, turn on the long tube in the middle clockwise to wind all the film back into the cartridge.
If you had the back opened briefly, do manual film rewinding in the dark room.

I finished taking pictures but it didnt rewind. did i load the film wrong? or did the batteries die? or whats up

Have you tried taking just one more pic to see if that triggers the rewind? If that didn't work, most film cameras have a rewind button. Usually on the bottom of camera. If you still can't get your film to rewind, take camera to your nearest photo finisher. They should have a dark box; they can remove your film manually.

The films rewinds as soon as I close the lid. It

One reason may be that the film is not pushed far enough to the receiving spool and the camera thinks it's empty thus rewinding the film.

If this is not the case it needs to be repaired.

Film wound on wrong side of camera

It sounds like you have a jam.  When you have finished taking shots and have used all the film, you must press the film-rewind button on the underside of the camera; this does not rewind the film, but allows you to commence the next step.  Once you have done this, flip up the rewind-crank on the top left hand side of the camera. It is situated on top of the film speed dial. turn this clockwise until all the film is back in its cartridge.  You should now be able to open the back of the camera.
I hope you have fun with your t50!

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.
