Nikon F6 Film Loading Error

Hi I recently bought a Nikon F6, everything seems to work ok apart from the fact that when I came to load the film in the camera for the first time,it comes up with an error message saying film load error, I have tried several different things, I have been into the CSM mode,d1 and tried, door shut loading & shutter release loading,neither will advance the film, error message comes up every time. An advice would be greatly appreciated.

Have you tried to adjust the film leader length? I sometimes get this if I pull the film too far across the film gate. Try lining up the end of the film so it is just on the red line mark.
