Can others edit my Photos
Photos NOT OK to edit
Is it winding like it's trying to take it up? Or is it not doing anything as if thinks it's already loaded? (my mamiya does that sometimes) NOTE: Nikon's won't wind unless it detects a film cartridge, so if you don't hear anything when you close it up empty..well that's why.

If you can hear it winding when you close it, than make sure you're loading it correctly. Match the end of the leader to the orange spot. Don't go past it, and don't miss it. The edge of the leader should be right where that orange spot is.

My guess is that the camera's built in TROLL meter detected something and did an automatic shutdown in the presence of the menace.
