First make sure your batteries are OK , camera will not work without two 1.5 v batteries. If your camera still doesnt work this is probably because the shutter is cocked but you cannot release the shutter and that is why you cannot advance the transport mechanism. The shutter release mechanism needs repairing first. SREMEDY : take bottom cover off ( 4 screws ) and locate 220 mf 6v capacitor ( it is the only one in this part of the camera , cant miss it ). Replace the capacitor while you keep an eye on the polarity ( indicated on the casing of the capacitor ) and you camera should work fine ( dont forget camera needs two 1.5v batteries to work ! )

Hi, check the camera set in auto /manually in auto function, check battery might drain the current , dis engage camera to lense to release the mirror by pressing button beside lense , turn lense in left or right .

SOURCE: my camera won't advance the film
If it has not been used in a while, the batteries may be dead and/or the contacts on the cap and in the body may have corrosion build up. Try fresh batteries after you clean the contact points with an eraser. The batteries go in positive up, toward the cap

No, it is not the battery. My guess is that the film leader did not stay in the take-up spool and is now bunched up around it. Try rewinding the film carefully as you normally would but remember that you are only rewinding a small portion of the length. You can even just open the film door and start over. You will only loose 3 or 4 frames on the roll.
