Question about Canon Speedlite 540EZ TTL Flash
I came across a Starblitz 3600 DTZ flash gun with tilt head, and already own a Canon Rebel "S" film camera...
The flash works great... however as I might suspect, the camera and flash do not talk to each other...
There are many labelled switches on the back which I have no idea of their purpose, but I have tried every position and the camera doesn't seem to read it...
Also, on the front of the flash seems to be a small sensor for becoming a slave flash, but again, in every position of the switches while firing the on-camera flash, the camera isn't making the flash gun go off when directly in front of or off to the side of the camera... is it even able to be a slave, which would be my preference over an on-camera flash mount...
Thanks in advance...

sounds like a shutter leaf dropping into the image. however, they are usually horizontal and more likely to manifest when in landscape mode. (horizontal, normal)
try using flash pointed up to ceiling.
also, could need to check for auto sync speed setting. usually 1/125 to 1/60. if its off, it could be catching the shutter in the wrong place.
check manual for settings for using flash.

I made the mistake of putting ahotshoe protector from my old camera on the new EOS 400D. It stopped the flash from popping up. I took it off and things now work.

What type of batteries did you buy?
For digital cameras, you want to use batteries with high milliamp hour (mah) rating: "2500 mah" if they are rechargeable.
If you bought regular batteries, you want to use good quality. Look for the "e2" or "better for digital equipment" type.
Does the camera have a DC power plug option? Try taking pictures with it plugged in if it does. If it still malfunctions with power right from the wall, then you bought a bad camera.

SOURCE: Film Loading Error
This also happens to Yashicas often. (though instead of stirpping the film, it will rewind it back into the roll. Something's wrong with either the firmware or the drive system. It'll need to be taken to a camera repair shop, or you'll have to send it back to Canon for warranty service, if it's still within warranty.

There are several things that could cause this.
1- Check the battery door indicator switch under the battery door and beside the memory card slot. Is the little black switch damaged or missing? Try pressing down gently using a pen it with the door open and then press the power button. Does it turn on?
2- The fuse has blown and needs to be replaced. Offhand I don't recall where it is on the SD750 PCB or how hard it is to solder on a new one (depends on if its tricky to get at or not). Good thing is fuses are really cheap.
3- Other power problem with the PCB due to corrosion or impact damage. The PCB or 'motherboard' of the camera will need to be replaced.
