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.

To save battery power, the camera automatically goes into sleep mode and the monitor turns off if there is no operation when the camera is turned on (when the lens cover opens and the monitor is on). No picture is taken even if the shutter button is fully pressed in this mode.
Operate the zoom lever or other buttons to restore the camera from sleep mode before taking a picture. If the camera is left for 15 minutes, it automatically turns off (the lens cover closes and the monitor turns off). Press POWER to turn the camera on.
It does sound like a light leak, but hopefully all that has happened is that the foam seals surrounding the film compartment have perished and need replacing. With luck, this is unlikely to be expensive - check with your local camera shop or second hand camera dealer.
Hey missy0528, There are a few reasons your images might be grainy, one of which is your image quality is set to low. I would always have the camera set to the highest resolution possible, because you can always reduce the size of an image but you can never make it bigger. Another cause of grainy images in digital cameras is the sensitivity of the camera (ISO) is set to high. Since you are only seeing grainy images when you use the zoom the reason for the grainy images is most likely do to using the digital zoom. All a digital zoom does is crop the image much as you can do in some computer applications, and by doing this you greatly reduce your image quality. I would never use a digital zoom. Your camera has a 5x optical zoom and a 5.6x digital zoom. I would only use the optical zoom. I hope this helps! Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
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.
