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.
It means "Film remains in the camera after film rewind complete."
If this is happening after shooting, the remedy is simple: open the camera and remove the film. If this is happening right after loading the film, then you've got a more serious problem: the camera is rewinding the film upon loading.
Usually on this level Nikon it was a plastic "hook", part of the door moulding, that was retained by the latch mechanism in the body. The broken part may still be in there - if it is trip the latch and recover it with a tiny screwdriver or even a needle. If you can't find a replacement back door you can try welding the hook back in place with a low-temperature soldering iron - with the tip perfectly clean and a very steady hand - as long as the door is thermoplastic and not thermosetting. If that doesn't work bend a paperclip or similar to exactly the right shape with the free ends (roughened) long enough to extend into the plastic of the door by 4-5mm., heat the wire and push slowly into the edge of the door. There are many variations of this technique that I've used, all require extremely careful work! Best tip: spend more time thinking than doing. Good luck.
Can it be repaired? It needs a new latch piece. Maybe a new door, if its all one piece. I do not own one so not sure about that model. Look at the door hinge. If a small lever sticks out of the hinge, it may be easily removed and replaced with a new door. otherwise you need to remove the bottom plate of the camera to replace the door. Be very careful doing so as things could pop out when you open it. You could also send it in to a repair shop, where they will also clean, lubricate and adjust it before returning.
Is it worth it? Only you can answer that. You might be able to pickup a used one on Ebay, so you have a source of parts. If you have no reason to keep that particular camera, replace it with a newer Nikon, so you can keep using your flash and lenses.
