I haven't used my vivitar in some time and I remember being able to take a picture and without winding the film taking an overlap picture. Almost like a double picture. There was a button but I now unsure which one. If someone could help that would be great or had some kind of diagram that showed what each button did would be great even.

Re: forget how to take double pictures.
Hey xplaur, To take a multiexposure photograph you should first expose the film, and then push the multiexposure button which is on the front of the camera on the top left when you are looking at the front of the camera. After you press this button advance the winding lever to set the shutter, and since the multiexposure button was pressed this shouldn't wind the film to the next frame. Now take your second exposure, and if you want to make another exposure on the same frame repeat the process. Keep in mind that every time you expose a single frame after the initial exposure you will be doubling the exposure on the frame. I usually under expose each exposure by one third on a double exposed frame. If you do more than two exposures I would underexpose each exposure by even more. Multi exposures are fun but tricky, and I would suggest you experiment and have fun with it. I will also say that black and white film is much more controllable and forgiving when it comes to this than color film. I hope this helps! Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.

To open back cover lift knob on top of camera ( this knob has a small arm that unfolds - used in rewinding). Once open you will see which side is the film side ( under this knob) and the take up side. On the film side raise the knob again in order to insert film case, the top of this should flip over later used to rewind film. with film trail out toward back of camera. Now push the knob down. Film should only be loaded one way so the knob can be lowered into film canister. Lower knob and Film canister is now secure. Next thread film leader onto take up spool. Some times these have a slot , but most Just have the teeth that fit the film edge.thread the film into slot then unto teeth. You will need to use film advance arm (There should be an arm on the top opposite side of film knob) you would move that would advance film. as you move this arm ( with cover open ) film holes should engage the teeth on bottom and top. ( if you can't advance after 1 or 2 advance arm swings) press take picture button ( releases springs). continue until film is captured top and bottom. Use the film spool knob gently wind film back into canniester until snug don't over wind. Close cover, take a picture with lens cap on, repeat that. As you wind ,the film cartridge knob should rotate. You are not wasting pictures film was designed for this waste. you should know how many photos were on film 12/24/36 pictures. you may have a knob to set to that number. When your ready to remove film ,push silver button on bottom and use winder handle ,rotating until free and easy. Open cover mention earlier. wow can't believe I remembered all that and hope that helps.
Have you tried replacing the batteries? It sounds like the batteries may just be too low to wind film, but can function without a load.
I can't remember if the N90S has the vertical grip release or not, but if it does, have you attempted to use it, to see if the camera functions from that release, or on fully manual settings with a cable release? Are there any error messages reading out on the LCD top panel or in the viewfinder? Are you using an attached flash? What settings are you using?
If it's not functioning, on any settings including manual with film loaded, then it's most lilely in need of a visit to a repair shop to figure out where the issue lies.
After taking the first shot, hold down the Multi-Exposure button while cocking the film-advance lever. This cocks the shutter without winding the film. You can continue to do this for as many exposures as you want. Just don't hold down the M-E button while cocking after the last exposure.
The Multi-Exposure button is the button on the front of the camera just below the shutter release button.
The on-line Vivitar website said that the camera has 16MB of internal memory and can take an 8mp pictures. According to my wife's camera book (8mp Panasonic) you can take between 2-6 pictures at 8mp, 5-10 using 5mp density, and 8-16 using 3mp density. Not many.
You may not have loaded the film properly so that it wasn't wound forward after each exposure. Sometimes the film leader isn't picked up by the wind-on mechanism. Check the frame indicator moves as you wind the film on. Also operate the shutter without film and with the back open. You should see a flash of light through the lens if the shutter operates.
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.
Try putting a little pressure on the back door right of the finder. If the counter worked, then when film is finished and removed with the back door open you can see a metal lever in the slot that the door fits into. It should be straight vertical if not straighten with a needle or pin to vertical.. No parts are avail. for this model.
