Usually it's because the film was loaded improperly. Another cause is a plastic spur gear responsible for moving the film is stripped, that would require repair at a camera shop.

Camera keeps sucking the film back into the canister instead of loading it


Check the bottom DX pin in the film chamber. These get bent easily and it is also used for the film detect switch so that the camera knows there is film in the camera.

I have one last picture (film) left in my Polaroid and every time i close the bottom compartment it just ejects without letting me take the picture.


First of all you can't use that film anymore. If it gets ejected, it gets exposed to light which causes the film to develop. Also the film was already exposed when you didn't load it in the camera yet. When you buy a new cassette (that's the film holder) there's a darkslide on top. This darkslide prevents light to get to the film. When you load your camera, the darkslide ejects immediately. That is what happens to your last film. The camera recognizes it as a new cassette and ejects the darkslide, but in this case it's the film.

I have a 35mm nikon camera. I've changed the batteries but the film won't load. how can i load the film?


Here is what to look at: Custom Function number 8, "Auto film load when back is closed", default setting is 1 disabled on 0 it is enabled. If you have the manual for the F80 (same as N80) look on page 21 and page 72 and 73.If that is not the issue check the following: With the new batteries does the camera turn on, Can you focus, does the LCD light up? All that will let you know if you are getting power to the camera. If the answer is yes then the film should load so now check the inside of the camera back. Does it have the pressure are and roller next to the hinge. If that is missing then when you pull the film to the red dot, close the camera back there is nothing to put pressure on the film for it to load.

Camera goes into Shut Down Mode & Flashes the Letter H


Hey sonax,
This H error message means either the film is loaded incorrectly, or there is an internal malfunction in the camera. To determine if the film is loaded incorrectly you should take the film and the batteries out of the camera then reinstall the batteries and try taking a picture without film in the camera. If the camera allows it then the film was loaded incorrectly and I would refer to the camera manual for directions on how to load the film correctly. If the H error message persists then there is most likely an internal malfunction and I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

How to put film in the camera


Hey buddy5000,
The process to load film into your camera is as follows
1. Turn the camera on and make sure the frame counter reads 0 if it doesn't there is probably film in the camera.
2. Press the film door release button and slide the release downward.
3. Place the new film cartridge in the film cartridge chamber and pull out the film leader until it reaches the red dot on the bottom right side of the film chamber. Make sure the holes on the lower edge of the film engage the teeth on the sprocket.
4. Now close the back door and the film should load automatically and# 1 should appear in the frame counter, and if it does not then the film is not loaded properly.

I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

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.
