Hi I'm a newbie of this group. I recently get this camera, but I
couldn't be able to use it. I cannot load the film because the film
advance lever didn't turn (it can move only about 30°). The battery is
charged. I saw that the film rewind button is pressed, so i think it
block my camera. i'm not able to release this button. anyone of you
can help or advise me about this problem.

thanx in advance

You do realize that you have to release the shutter each time you
operate the film advance, right? It'll take 2 or 3 shutter releases to
get the film rolling properly onto the takeup reel. Then close the
door, put the lens cap on, release the shutter & advance the film until
the frame counter points to '1'.

Unless I'm misunderstanding the question...

Thanks, but I think you didn't understand my question. The camera
seems don't do nothing. i think it happens because the rewind button
is pressed. I'm not able to release it, and i don't know why.
i hope now i'm a bit more clear and that you can answer me.

Try jiggling the sprockets which advance the film. This may release the
rewind button.
