On loading a fresh film into the camera the motor winds through to the last frame ie does not stop at first frame

That's entirely correct. Your camera winds all of the film out upon loading and each shot then winds the film back into the canister. Your frame counter works in countdown mode telling you how many shots remain rather than how many you've taken.

Many other camera do the same thing. The beauty of it is twofold: if the camera back is accidentally opened, then the shots already taken are safely in the film canister (except for the last shot), also when the film has finished you wait less time for the short length remaining to be rewound rather than the entire roll.

Hope this helps, please take a moment to rate my free answer.

Camera does not rewind after end of film it spins, but does not engage the film. Joe M.

it is likely that this model of camera spins the entire roll onto the take-up spool, and then slowly rewinds one frame at a time until the last picture is taken. Then it has already almost rewound,

This shows up when you load the film. The cameras digital counter counts up to the number of pictures available, and counts downward each picture taken.

I loaded the film but display window shows a flashing zero

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.

Camera won't work, has an E on the display

If E blinks in the exposure counter, the film is improperly loaded. Reload the film.

Evoca 115 stopped working after 22 shots

I think you have run out of film. 22 panoramic shots is the equivalent of at least 35 regular shots. Did you open the camera in a darkroom because if not you might of ruined the film. You need to try rewinding the film putting in a fresh roll and I think it should work. Hope this Helps.

Fuji 35mm Camera (Model DL-400)


remove the battery and check that it is good. replace battery and open back door, close the door and it should run the motor / transport. if so, load film up to the drive sprocket being sure film will catch on the sprocket.
or move the latch holding back cover, and open the door fully. check the pressure plate on the door, gently pull the plate up a little to increase pressure on the film. bring the holding lever out toward the latch and close the door to lock the lever back to position.

i think it means the film hasn't loaded properly. I had this and opened up the back and the film hadn't wound so it wasn't exposed. Anyway i just wound the film around a bit and shut the back and it turned on like normal. hope this helps.

Flashing HI

there is a flexible ribbon cable carrying signals from camera body to the lense assembly. Due to regular use it gets worn out, thus it gets broken and is not able to perform the task for which the camera has given the signal. in your camera also the same flex cable is broken. Get it changed at some good repairer
