SOURCE: date and time change
First you press the button called "MODE" and, without releasing it, press the "SET" button.
Then, the year will start to blink.
Set the year with the "SET" button. Once you finish setting the year, press the "MODE" button to change to the month.
Then, the same way with the month, day, hour, minutes.
After minutes, the display will stop blinking.

The flashing E indicates the film is already rewound.
If you're concerned about it not being fully rewound, open the back in an absolutely dark room. A windowless bathroom or walkin closet will work. Block the bottom of the door with a towel or blanket and make sure there aren't ANY light sources in the room. No charger lights, smoke detectors, etc.
If the film is still hanging out, carefully handle it by the edges only & gently remove it from the camera. Try not to kink it. You can manually wind it back in the cassette by rotating the post on top.

SOURCE: 35mm film developed with streaks
I take it the streak is a hot streak of light. If you're shooting negative, look at the negative and see if it's one long streak. If so the light leak could be anywhere between the film roll and the take up roll. I would open up the back, go into a closet and shine a bright light on the front of the camera and see if you can find the leak and tape it up. Otherwise, 35mm SLR's are very cheap these days. I'd recommend a Canon A-1 for your daughter, but you can't go wrong with any Canon or Nikon.

Turn on camera. Blurry pic. Wirly grinding noises. Blue screen.
Codes on blue screen:
5 f 0 8
5 e 0 2
5 f 0 8
5 e 0 2
Sometimes smacking the **** out of it fixes it. Today it doesn't seem to do the trick any more.
