Could you be putting too much film onto the wind spool? Take the end of the film leader no farther than the RED/ORANGE marker at the spool. Too much film will cause it to bind and start rewinding.

Film rewinds when loaded

Align film leader at mark, then close the camera back for prewind loading. Film rewinds as each shot is exposed. Built-in motor for automatic winding/rewinding. Film advance: Automatic. Single-frame and continuous (1 fps). Automatically rewinds film leader into cartridge when designated number of frames have been exposed (midroll rewind available).

I have a Pentax Spotmatic F Camera. When I depress the rewind pin, it does not remain depressed. I must hold the pin in and rewind the film.

Tony your camera is now over 30 years old. THe fact that this is all that is wrong with it is a blessing. But why are you still shooting film? There is nothing you can do on film that can not be achieved on digital.

My 35mm film won't load. It keeps rewinding

Solution: Repair or replace auto-rewind system.
Cause: The built in auto-rewind system that supposed to work when film is finished but because it is faulty it receives wrong signal when film is lloaded. So the camera thinks the film is at the end of the roll.
Possible cost: $65-$75

BATTERIES DEAD, FILM INSIDE, NOT MY CAMERA, HOW DO i REMOVE FILM

Not really, the battery is going to be needed to power the rewind motor.

To try and open the camera, remove the film and rewind it will all have to be done in complete darkness and under such conditions you're likely to break something.

$7.16 is all you need for that battery including shipping:-

Film developing clear

Hello

This problem could have a number of causes,

To check to see if it is a camera fault of developing fault you could try using a cheap colour film in the camera and getting it developed at a normal photo processor.
This will determine in which half of the process the fault lies.
If the pictures from the colour film are the same then it must be a camera usage problem or fault.
If the pictures are ok from the colour film then it will be a problem in either the film being used, developing problem (poor mix of chemicals etc).

This will just speed up the diagnosis a bit.

Flashing HI

there is a flexible ribbon cable carrying signals from camera body to the lense assembly. Due to regular use it gets worn out, thus it gets broken and is not able to perform the task for which the camera has given the signal. in your camera also the same flex cable is broken. Get it changed at some good repairer

Loaded film, but won't work and a "3" is flashing.
