Hi there! When I try to wind the film to the next frame, instead of stopping there it carries on winding sometimes 2 or three times. I am missing a few frames because of that (many actually!!) sometimes works fine but very occasionally. I only just got my camera and i am desperate for it to work fine.
That camera has several rubber bumpers and gaskets in the mirror
mechanism that have a tendency to turn into sticky gooey sludge causing
the levers in the shutter and mirror mechanisms to get sluggish.
The latch that tells it to stop winding is not dropping into proper position when you wind the camera. Try holding the film advance lever all the way to the front when winding it to allow the latch to drop into place before letting the lever to return.
only permanent solution is to completely disassemble the camera to clean out
the old goop and replace them with newer neoprene fittings. My
suggestion would be to find a replacement body since the repair is
probably going to cost between $80 to $90 and you can probably find a
good used body for less than that.

Re: The quick winder not working
The rubber bunpers are best removed for a permanent fix. This should be included in a standard service.
To see how to open the camera up for repair and how to do this properly there is a camera repair site which deal with this and other cameras in detail. alternatively you can contact the author who can offer a very competitivecamera repair service for these models.

This won\'t be easy for you if you don\'t the proper tools, You have to remove the wind lever assy, and the speed dial, Then wind side top cover, Then pull wind base plate assy, And check counter reset lever, to make sure spring didn\'t come loose, Putting the baseplate back on can be fun because of linkage to the wind assy
I would say either the film didn't wind properly as it was going along,or the shutter isn't working properly.Did it make the whirring noise like it was winding after you took a picture?If you can,try taking a picture with the door open,no film,and see if the shutter moves.If it does open,it's probably the winder which pulls the film after a picture is taken.Good luck!
to rewind the film back into the tin look underneath the camera you will see a button, press this, it will disengage the winding mechanism, looking on top of the camera to the left you see a knob. flip out the handle and start to turn this clockwise until you hear a click and the turning become a little easier. if it is hard to turn, ensure the button undeneath is still pushed in. once the film is wound back, lift this knob this should open the back door and of the camera and release the spent film can.
take your new film and take it out if its platic container. place the old film in the same container for safe keeping til it goes to processing.
place the new film into the camera on the left side with the brown tab of the film laying over the shutter window in the middle. press in the winder knob to help hold the film container in place. pull out the end of the film and guide it over the two wheels with teeth ensureing that the teeth fit into the perferation holes in the film. slide the film across the camera to the roller on the oposite side. slightly wind the camera on help guide the film tab into the slot once in the slot slowly wind the camera on ensuring that the film is running smoothly over the shutter gate. now close the back of the camera which should click to lock. now wind on the film until the winder leaver stops check the ASA or IOS rating of your film from the box it came in. and ensure this setting is correct on the setting wheel on the right. if your camera has automatic film recognition then this is not necessary. you are now ready to start taking pictures again.
This is normal operation for the Canon Rebel film cameras, they are designed to pre-wind the film so each time you take a picture the camera winds it into the film cartridge. This means if the camera has a problem or the film door gets opened by accident your pictures are safe in the canister.
It is absolutely OK, my dad too has one (not older than urs). make it tighter, but u need some screws drivers (specially for cameras). Open the camera and tighten the screw holding the winder arm. Try this only if u have experience otherwise u may end up with a scramble of camera. About the F-Stop, i have no idea why this is so... might be the technology is gone too advanced compared to the 1978.
Press the rewind button and wind the film advance lever, It will set to its place. Release the rewind button, press the shutter release button.Once again try wind the film.( provided your camera is not fitted with motor wind )
Quick solution: force a manual rewind.
1. Remove film
2. Close camera back.
3. With the power turned on, press the two rewind buttons together. They are marked in red.
4. The camera will make a rewind sound and will stop after about 2 seconds.
5. DO NOT fire the shutter yet.
6. Put the mode on Manual and select a fast shutter speed like 1/90 sec. Any aperture will do.
7. Load the film correctly as given in the user's manual.
8. As you close the camera back, the film will prewind to the end of roll. At the end of the roll pre-wind the LCD will show you the total number of frames available.
9. Select any shooting mode.
10. Go on and take pictures.
