    It may be broken, but I want to know how to properly rewind the film. It
    appears that you have to push a small button with an R on it, and either
    push or pull on a little gray tab to the left of the R button. Right now the
    gray tab is out about 1/8" from the black body. It won't push to the right
    at all, and will pull to the left only slightly. I tried pushing down on the
    R button while trying to move the gray tab, but it acts the same-not much
    movement and no rewind action. Any help would be much appreciated, including
    referral to a repair shop in the San Jose CA area that could retrieve the
    film. OR how to take it apart myself! THANKS.

    Never mind- I replaced the 4 weak AAA batteries and it started re-winding.
    When I opened the back to remove the film, the gray tab went back to it's
    normal closed position. All is good!
