Question about Canon EOS Elan IIE 35mm SLR Camera
I have an elan IIe and it keeps auto rewinding after just a couple of shots are taken. Sometimes it makes it all the way thru a whole roll of film. I have two cameras doing the same thing. I bought the second one in hope that it would not do this. Any idea what's causing this and can it be fixed?
There are 2 things that can cause that problem. Many times it is caused by the user pulling too much film out of the film cartridge and laying it across the film plane, causing it to bunch up on the take-up roller when the camera back is closed.
Make sure the film tip extends no further than the orange indicator in the back of the camera.
If that is not the cause, there is probably a defect in the clutch that flips back and forth each time the camera winds the film. Sometimes they bind up and cause the camera to go into the rewind mode early. It would need to be looked at by a qualified camera technician to determine if that is the problem.
