    Got a problem with the film jamming after just four or five shots, then rewinding the the film.
    I tried changing from 36 exp film to 24 but to no avail.
    Anybody have a any idea what may be the problem?
    Thanks in advance

    Waste a film and wind it on without closing the back and see what happens. If it's anything other than obvious, the bin is calling!

    It sounds as if the wind on drive is jamming/failing. If that is the case it's probably not worth repairing to be honest.

    Hi Adrian - sorry to hear about your problems with wind on.

    All may not be lost. I had a problem with the Command dial (a known problem apparently) on my EOS 5 - a local camera shop told me it was "beyond economic repair" and another said it would make a good paperweight which I found hard to accept.

    However, after a few phone calls I found a local camera engineer who agreed to have a look at it for me. Three days later it was back in my hands and hasn't stopped working since.

    It's got to be worth a few phone calls first.

    If you can't find anyone local to you - I could let you have the contact details of the guy I used on the Hampshire / Sussex border so you could at least have a word with him and see what he thinks. I've used him for years and he has carried out many services and repairs for me so I would have no hesitation in recommending him. He has always carried out a good job at a fair price whenever I've used him.

    Good luck anyway

    Insufficient evidence. Are the films your own wind on or comercial . The slightest tightness will trip the rewind.
