Question about Nikon N75 35mm SLR Camera
When I try to load a new roll of film into the camera, instead of loading the film, the camera will rewind it back into the film cannister. It used to be an occasional problem, but it's now rewound the last six rolls of film I've tried to load. When I close the door, I can hear the gears going, but never the click and the numbers on the screen don't start advancing. Then the ERR message pops up and when I open the door the film has been rewound back into the case. I've tried taking out the batteries to reset. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I have (had) the same problem. I came onto this site to find out what I can do to fix it. It didn't help. I got pissed and almost threw the camera away. So I decided to get a little rough with the camera, (i normally wouldn't do this but i was going to throw it away).
I loaded the film like normal but before I closed the back I manually wound the film around the opposite spool. I guess I fooled the camera into thinking it had already wound the film.
When I closed the back of the camera everything worked fine.
I then snapped off the pics the camera said were left.
After this first role, I loaded the next role like normal. The camera worked like a charm!
By the way...the mirror dropped back down when I manually wound the film around the spool.
I hope this works...if it doesn't make any sense feel free to email me with any questions..

This is a known problem with this camera (and not the only one..). The fix is easier but ammaseur was close enough.. The fix is to manually force a film rewind by pressing at the same time the two rewind buttons (marked) as described in the manual. Then it should work fine until it happens again & you'll have to repeat. Hope this helps, otherwise an ok camera for the price.
