Message: you have to have properly loaded film in the film back for the film to advance. for the film to have broken you must have loaded the film incorrectly. please carefully review the manual. here is a video of how to properly load the film. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xbdx72dYnu4

Message: if the rotating back is not exactly aligned, the film will not advance. if the film is loaded improperly, it will break. if the lens shutter is not set properly when you put the lens on the camera, the shutter and film will not advance. PLEASE carefully read the manual so that you know everything about this camera before wasting more film. your results will be worth it.
