Question about Canon Photography
What has probably happened is that you have not yet engaged the sprockets into the sprocket holes in the film. Open the back and make sure the film is being pulled by the take up spool under the wind on lever until both top and bottom sprockets are engaged. If there are any torn sprocket holes in the film, cut the damaged film off, cut a new lead in section to half film width, and try again. You will lose a few shots, but the rest of the film will be fine. Shutter won't start working until the film is properly advanced. If you need to get damaged film off the take up spool just press the film return button, the one you would press the rewind the film into the can at the end of the film. It is on the bottom under the sprocket shaft.
