Guys...

Here's what I'm seeing. When I open the back, sometimes, not always, the motor runs. When I pop the film canister in (but before I pull the leader in place or close the door) the motor runs. So obviously I have to wait. Then I close the lid, the motor runs and sets the frame 1 into position. Seems this camera is pretty intelligent. As I place/pull the film for this test, it seems to be resetting itself. I've never seen P&S cameras do this. Usually, the motor doesn't run until I close the door. Anyone?
