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

APS film chamber stuck shut. Door won't open when film chamber release button is pressed


Sorry to hear about this issue. If you have a change bag, I would put a few jewelers screwdrivers in it then put the camera in it. With the bag closed up I would attempt to forcibly open the back. With the camera in the bag there is not any chance to expose the film. After the film is removed wind it back into the cartridge. Now send it off for developing.

Good luck,
Cordially,

Film is not developing


There is not any in camera developing. This is not a digital camera it is a film camera wherein we put a film cartridge with a specified number of shots into the camera then thread the film leader to the takeup spool, close the camera advance the film a few frames, then we are ready to shoot. After the specified number of shots, 24 or 36, film is rewound into the canister, camera back opened film canister removed then taken to the lab for processing.

The films rewinds as soon as I close the lid. It


One reason may be that the film is not pushed far enough to the receiving spool and the camera thinks it's empty thus rewinding the film.

If this is not the case it needs to be repaired.

Error


You could try removing the batteries so that when it reboots it would be fresh without any memory of an error. However if it continues to show an error it is the camera having a problem.

Putting film into nikon f60


It is fairly simple. Insert the film canister with the hole side (not the projection) down. Insert the spool of the camera into this hole and slide the canister inside the chamber. Now pull the film out slightly so that the leader (the narrow portion at the end of the film) aligns with the orange mark at the lower right end of the film chamber. Make sure there is no slack in the film. Close the door and turn on the camera.

Film won't load on Minolta 400si Maxxum Camera


My daughter took the camera to her photography teacher he was able to load the film by wrapping more film around the roller. It's not as easy to load as my Canon. I thought we had put plenty of film around it already. Oh well, it's working anyway.
