For some reason my canon 1014xls has started playing up. Whenever I pull the trigger it runs for about a second and then stops and displays TAPE END in the viewfinder. This happens with or without a roll of film inside. I ran the camera with the door open and the crank only turns about 180 degrees each time. I tried shooting single frames and the same thing happens after about 15 frames. The footage counter seems to be reading fine. I've changed the batteries but still nothing.
Any ideas/suggestions?

Thanks
-Jon

i know you've changed the batts, are they good, have you done a batt test on the camera? All your dials at 3 o-clock on the camera? Apart from batts, i really cant think of anything else, unless something is jamming, causing the cam to shut down, is the gate really clean??

That's what my 814XL-S does if you press the little sound cartridge sensor inside the camera when you don't actually have a sound cart in there. Maybe something is pushing this down when it shouldn't be?
