Question about Contax RX 35mm SLR Camera
The auto-rewind is triggered when the film advance mechanism detects tension on the film, indicating the end of the roll.
It could be a couple of things causing the problem...
1) The particular roll of film you were using was wound too tight, or has got some moisture in it causing it to stick.
2) If it has done this with various rolls of film, it is likely that the clutch mechanism that detects the film tension is out of adjustment. This is something that a professional camera repair shop will be about to fix for you.
I'm not familiar with this particular model of camera, but there may be a facility to turn off the auto-rewind as a short-term fix.
Hope this helps!
