Question about Cameras
A couple of things to make sure:
-the battery is in the right position
-is the battery showing a full charge in the data panel
-after turning it on, press the P (program auto) button
-is there film in the camera-if so does it show as properly loaded
-it could be the smaller watch quartz battery that needs replacing, it's found in the back of the camera
If you need a manual, here's a link. It tells you the exact battery types you need to use.
If that doesn't help, I would take it for a service to a camera shop as this seems to be a common problem with that model of camera.
I hope that info helped.

At the bottomside of the camera you should see a tiny hole, inset a straightened paperclip into it, this will manually release the film.. if its a button type just pressing it wud do... try this if u havent yet...
the roll wud get stuck for two reasons... if u ve wound the film in the opposite direction or
It is possible that the film has broken free from the canister. You may have to try and push it back in the canister by hand
if that doesnt help.....you have to slowly pull the film out by hand. Sounds like there is just a minor jam and thats why the batteries are messing up. Just try to pull everything out because that will be the only way to free it. I see this problem all to often I work with Kodak. Im sure if you take your time and gently pull the film out turn the camera off and back on the cmaera will reset itself and should work just fine.
hope this was helpful thank you good luck with ur camera have a nice day
