open the compartment for the film...

you will see that in the middle of the right there is a small silver piece of metal....

if you press it in, the numbers will count, if you do NOT, it will return to "S"

So now look at the door is the piece of plastic that presses that button still there, did it chip off?

How can i fix this?

I noticed that when you open the back of the camera (to where the film is) the counter resets back to "S" so maybe you opened the back of the camera before you finished all of the film?

by

So of I opened the back of the camera when it had 6 left, it doesn’t work more? Because mine went from 6 to S too???

That does’nt mean that your camera is broke it just simply means you need to replace the film.

No matter what I do, the counter stays at S. I even poked the plastic piece and the counter didn’t move. Maybe it’s jammed? But why?

if the counter is already at S the counter won't move when you poke the opening (silver button inside) right of the film. can you try to jam that button, maybe with a matchstick or something else and see if it starts moving when you take photos.

I know this is a little late to help anybody but I had the exact same issue. I ended up putting in brand new batteries and it worked for me. The new blank black sheet came through and my new film was good to go.
