Help! Sometimes my camera will take 10, 12, 15, etc. pictures and then rewind, sometimes it even does it with a new roll of film after taking only one picture! I am wasting alot of rolls of film! Why does this happen and what can I do? Thank you...

Hi Luce n Steve,
To quote JC at Photo.Net: "sometimes the rewind function "gets stuck" if the camera thinks a previous rewind did not complete successfully. The solution is to reset it by forcing a rewind operation. Just press the two rewind buttons simultaneously: on the left side of the lens and just behind the shutter release. (They are marked and the manual explains how to force a rewind.) I did exactly this, and my next roll of film loaded without problems." Hope that help you folks.
just take another photo, if it reads 9 then the film is advancing. if it reads 7 then it's going to the cassette. no problem either way.
if the film is advancing, it will either rewind auto or there will be a rewind button or switch with a double arrow.
if the film is going to the cassette it will rewind auto.
The auto-rewind is triggered when the film advance mechanism detects tension on the film, indicating the end of the roll.
It could be a couple of things causing the problem...
1) The particular roll of film you were using was wound too tight, or has got some moisture in it causing it to stick.
2) If it has done this with various rolls of film, it is likely that the clutch mechanism that detects the film tension is out of adjustment. This is something that a professional camera repair shop will be about to fix for you.
I'm not familiar with this particular model of camera, but there may be a facility to turn off the auto-rewind as a short-term fix.
Your camera has a faulty winding mechanism. It suppose to rewind in the end of the film when there are tension present but somehow the detecting system in your winding mechanism is detecting when the back door is closed. Remedy is replacing the clutch system within winding mechanism. Average repair runs about $90. -James. For further assistance by email, go to www.camerarepairjapan.com
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.
Wait till night. Go to a room. Draw all the curtains and switch off all lights. Now you have a dark room. Make sure you can't even see your own fingers! Pop the camera film cover. Pull out the film and rewind manually.
