Re: i cant get the film door open
there are no new parts for this model minolta, however you may be able to repair it.
at the back cover open button remove the leather and then the small screws that hold the button mechanism. lift off the cover ( careful of the spring ) try to bend the flat shaft enough so it grabs the release lever put the spring back, align the button and cover to the shaft. replace the screws and leather.
now if the plastic rivet holding the button to the cover is broken it's not repairable unless a good used part can be found.

Sorry to hear about this issue. If you have a change bag, I would put a few jewelers screwdrivers in it then put the camera in it. With the bag closed up I would attempt to forcibly open the back. With the camera in the bag there is not any chance to expose the film. After the film is removed wind it back into the cartridge. Now send it off for developing.
Confirm tht DX shows in LCD. If not then press and hold shift button then press ISO so "DX" appears.Open Camera Back. Insert film cartridge, pull film leader out to right and align with red index mark (inside film chamber on right). Make sure there is no slack in leader.Close camera back until lock release snaps closed. Fully depress shutter until film advances to first frame.
Confirm " 1" and film transport show in LCD. If Film is not loaded correctly, "ERR" show on LCD. Open cack and reload film.

To open the film door just pull the rewind crank upwards. Make sure that you have rewound the film first though! (press the rewind button on the bottom rear right of the baseplate, and then turn the rewind crank clockwise until you feel the film disengage from the take-up spool).
How is the film stuck? Is the rear door stuck? Does the film door open?
As long as you do not damage the film canister, the film will be ok. If the door opens and the film is rewound, use something to pry out the top of the canister from the camera. Then you can remove the film. Even a film roll of 36 should not get stuck. Check the cartridge are for anything sticky. Sometimes these older cameras get some sticky residue from decaying foam in the shutter area. This would be a good time to send it in for CLA - Clean, Lubricate, Adjust. My own EOS 10 had that problem. If you can't get the film out, the repair shop will do that for you.
