With each shot this camera auto advances the film. Maybe, when the film door is closed the film is not seated properly all to the right side. Thus the take up reel is not pulling the film.
Being as the N65 appeared in 2000, it is possible it may be stoved-up. Also, if so these are not worth fixing. For the cost of fixing I would look for a N80; a very nice camera much improved over the N65.
At first glance it seems your camera may need repair. First thing I would do is clean the contacts that read the cartage. Put in a cartridge that you can afford to play with. Put the lens cap on keeping light from exposing the film, fire off the frames until it stops. If it still stops at 24-26 rewind the film (hope you have a film puller). Open the camera back fire off some shots then replace the film trying it again. If that does not work the counter is in need of repair.
However, I would not repair it I would purchase another film camera such as the Nikon N80 and if you can afford it the F100. Both are much superior to the N65. You can find N80 at KEH.com for less than $100, As of today, 2013-10-17, I see one in E+ condition for $76, a N65 for $14.
Nothing. Fixya .com is a collection of people sitting in their homes in front of their computers. We can answer your questions online, and we can suggest things, offer advice, but we are not a repair shop for cameras, bikes or anything else. I suggest you look online to the Yahoo groups. Get into some of the Nikon camera groups and ask their advice. You might also look up Garry's Camera repair. If he fixes them, his price is posted on his site. Have him also look it over for a Clean, lube and Adjust(CLA). He has just about the best pricing I've seen.
Make sure it has good fresh batteries. Look at the film, make sure it is loaded correctly, or that there is film in the camera. and last look at the shutter. Open the back of the camera and the shutter is right in front of the film on the lens side of the back. if there shutter is not flat, but one or more of the little black blades are out of place then that is the problem. That shoud be sent back for service. It is not something you can push back into place without potentially doing more damage.
The first suggestion I would make is to make sure your pulling the film leader out far enough, and the film canister is sitting in place properly. If this doesn't work I would examine the sprocket holes in the film leader and make sure they are not ripped if they are you should pull the film out until they are no longer ripped and then try loading the film again. I hope this helps.
the only thing that I could think of when I read your situation is, that you might not be using a DX coated films. see, the camera reads the bar code on the film and maybe it is not the same program. check the camear manual and make sure you are using the same kind of the suggested film in the manual. good luck
