No. With fresh batteries the camera should come on as soon as you operate the power switch. It appears that you may have bought a faulty camera and so so you should see if you can get a refund from the seller or if you've paid via PayPal for an F75 sold on ebay you may be able to make a claim against the seller if uncooperative. Note that if the seller made no claims about the camera functionality and you didn't ask about it then you have no rights to any refunds.
Even the simplest of repairs to the F75 is not economically viable (even if you can get spare parts) as their value is now so low that they're often given away. I've never actually paid for an F75 as they've all come from my local Freegle/FreeCycle groups.
Unfortunately, this now means that you F65 has just become an unrepairable spares donor. Your camera was a short-lived budget model and Nikon never gave it the spares support of more expensive models.
IF you can find the spare parts needed, they'll exceed the cost of replacing your camera, and that's even before you include labour costs.
It's not all bad news though: models like the F65 and F75 are simply of no value to Nikon enthusiasts so are available very cheaply. I recently got a boxed, mint, "used for just one holiday" F75 with the kit 28-100 lens for free on my local Freegle group (a UK offshoot of FreeCycle, where many of my other Nikons and Canons have come from). Used camera dealers tend to sell F65/F75 bodies for around £50-£60, and on auction sites they tend to go for anywhere between £5 to £30 unless there are competing idiot bidders. Last summer I also got a Nikon n8008s (F801s) on FreeCycle, it's a bit battered but works perfectly, so it's definitely worth registering with all of the groups within easy reach of you and regularly scanning the offers.
