    Hi Stuart

    What do you mean by 'self load plastic'? I assume Custom No 1 is a custom function?

    Two things prompt film rewind - the camera frame counter reaching 36 or an increase in the tension in the film. Sometimes the film within the cannister can be wound too tightly and will trigger premature rewinding. The other possibly is a problem with the camera itself.

    Give more detailled information and hopefully the solution to your problem will become clearer.

    Hi Stuart

    I've just read the troubleshooter sections in my collection of EOS Magazines, I also read up on your EOS 100.

    The EOS 100 was the first Canon camera to use a sprocketless mechanism to advance the film. The info I put my previous post is correct, though according to EOS Magazine, you setting Custom Function 1 to '1' should have stopped the automatic rewind.

    Two things to try:

    1. Try a standard 36 exposure roll from a different manufacturer.

    2. Turn the spindle to slacken the film inside the cannister before loading.

    If these suggestions don't work, then there may indeed be a problem with your EOS 100.
