Problems inserting film

Hey guys, I have a problem insering a film into my camera. Everytime I insert the film and close the camera it REWINDS instead off "loading" it. I took it to the shop and they told me it's probably a problem with the sensor. They said getting it fixed would be really expensive and that I could get a new one for a little more. I bought it used and don't have any warranty. What can I do? Would should I do? Is there any "trick" to get it to work (e.g. shake it while it's loading etc.)? Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks guys, Michelle

The camera is suppose to do this. I have this camera as well, and even in the manual it talks about this. I automatically advances the film to the last frame and then works backwards.

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).

When I insert a new roll of film into my Canon Rebel S 35mm SLR, it automatically rewinds the film instead of winding it onto the spool. I can't figure out why it's doing this.

this is normal, as these cameras are designed to wind the entire film to the take up spool then as you expose the file will roll back into the cassette. this was a feature that canon devised to protect already exposed film when the back cover is inadvertantly opened.

Camera shoots all the film then rewinds.

Repair would be at least $139 from Blue Moon Camera. I would buy another MZ-50 (ZX-50 is the same) off eBay or you could buy a ZX-30 from Blue Moon Camera for $75 with 1 year warranty. They are professional.

The films rewinds as soon as I close the lid. It

One reason may be that the film is not pushed far enough to the receiving spool and the camera thinks it's empty thus rewinding the film.

If this is not the case it needs to be repaired.

My pentax zx-m rewinds new film as soon as i shut the door

When loading film, make sure to draw the film all the way to the receiving spool. If you don't pull the film far enough the camera thinks it's empty and rewinds the film.

New roll of film rewinds instead of advancing

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

Minolta Maxxumm 4 - rewinding too soon

Hey Pix4me,
I would make sure that the manual rewind button on the back of the camera is not stuck in, or you're not accidentally hitting the manual rewind button. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
