I loaded a new film into Nicon F75, closed the door and turned it on.
However it seems like I did a poor job inserting the film because it did not clutch and I saw “Err” message on the screen.

I removed the film altogether and inserted another one instead.
The message stayed there, and the camera doesn't even attempt to load the new film now.

How do I fix this?

That happened to me from time to time with my N80. Each time I simply opened the back and checked that the film canister was inserted straight and the film leader was pulled out the right amount. Second time was always the charm. A few times I had the leader out too far (passed the little red dot) and had to take the film canister out roll the leader in a bit and try again.

I hope that works for you.
