    Thanks for the tips. This film loading malfunction is not so rare. The camera motor may be a fault or the rewind pin is jammed. Merry Holiday everyone! Time for an eggog and brandy.

    No machine works reliably forever without lubrication and adjustment all these cameras are more than twenty five years old, if you need reliable picture taking ability you need to have them serviced, just buying other cameras of the same age that also have probably never been serviced is just buying more trouble, all my Canon cameras are about the same age as the OPs and have been serviced in the last two years and still look and work like new.
    I know it costs more than the cameras are worth on ebay to have them CLAd, but that's the price you pay to obtain may years more pleasure of reliable use

    Ben is right. Acquiring the camera is the least expensive part most often. Keeping it in good working order is a different story all together. It is a true joy to use a camera that is in perfect condition; everything works better, moves better, especially in cold or hot weather.

    Take good care of your gear. It will give better results that are more consistent, and you'll have more fun shooting.
