Question about Canon Prima Super 105X - Point & Shoot / Zoom camera - 35mm - lens: 38 mm - 105 mm 35mm Film Camera
I loaded the film in the usual way, and when I closed the camera it made all the usual noises of winding on the film, but in the little display window it didn't show a number 1, but it shows a flashing zero.
So I thought it hasn't wound on correctly and I opened up the back and pushed the film on with my hand, closed the back, but the camera behaved as before. If I open it up again I'm afraid I might ruin the film...
Go ahead and try anyway. A ruined film is far cheaper than a useless camera or a professional repair. In any case, if the film hasn't loaded properly it will only be the first short length of film which is ruined. As this is a newly loaded film you haven't any risk of losing any undeveloped photos.
Auto spooling film systems are great when they work, but sometimes are a real pain and some cameras seem really picky about having a film leader of precisely the right length. See if you can engage the the film onto the spool manually.
