1). open the back, use different combinations of film speeds, shutter speeds and apartures. if you can see light coming in from the lens, no matter how little light and how fast.
2). check that film advances or not. if you camera detects film and loads automatically, insert any expired film cassette, or badly developed film and roll it back into cassette.
3). send it for service if either one or both gives you an answer of "N".

There is not any in camera developing. This is not a digital camera it is a film camera wherein we put a film cartridge with a specified number of shots into the camera then thread the film leader to the takeup spool, close the camera advance the film a few frames, then we are ready to shoot. After the specified number of shots, 24 or 36, film is rewound into the canister, camera back opened film canister removed then taken to the lab for processing.
Check to make sure that the film is properly inserted into the take-up spool, and watch the rewind knob and make sure it is turning indicating that the film is going through the camera. Also check to make sure that the multi-exposure lever isn't stuck in the on position by spillage or impact so the camera just keeps taking exposure on one frame and the film doesn't move.
APS cameras are very rarely seen these days because the film loading and advance mechanism was poorly designed and engineered from the start.
Your fault is very common and given that the camera will be irreparable anyway (no spares, plus the small problem that the camera was never designed to be repaired anyway) then you need to decide whether to just chuck it away or whether to break open the camera in total darkness and manually rewind the film back into the cassette for developing.
Am i right in thinking the keystone is a old 8mm movie camera? Never had any experience with movie cameras, or developing their film- I'm goin to assume its like 35mm developing, apologies if this is completly useless advice. I'm fairly certain you will not be able to develop film in camera (camera will end up pretty wet). If the problem you have is actually getting film out o the camera I'd suggest a changing bag- basically a light tight bag that you put the camera in with your developing tin (if your home developing) or canister if your using a lab, you then have to put your hands inside 2 holes either side and transfer your film from camera to developing container- blind. I'd advise doing a couple practice runs first with some old unused film just to get the hang of it- it can be tricky. Again I have no experience with 8mm film processing but I'd imagine the principles are similiar. You can get hold of changing bags from most photographic retailers, and always follow instructions that came with your film.
This is due to old film. All photo packs are now past their use by dates and as it ages the chemical pack in each photo thickens and the ejection rollers are less able to squeeze it into the distant corners. The brownish film is the actual film surface which has not had the developing emulsion spread across it.
There doesn't seem to be a pattern with any of the Fuji films (I use Sensia and Velvia, exclusively, and have never had a problem in my Canon EOS). There are reports that the Fuji Pro films will gum up the sprockets in a camera, thanks to an adhesive strip at the end of the roll, but I'm not sure if the regular 400 speed film has the same problem. You might try a thorough cleaning, and see if it is still happening. I'm not surprised that 400 speed comes out a tad dark. Try dropping to 200 speed (I generally won't use anything above 100 speed, unless it is black&while).
Looks like you are not loading the film onto the take-up spool correctly.
Go back to the development store and ask them if they can give you a spool of waste film (e.g. one that got exposed to the light or something). Otherwise buy the cheapest film you can find.
Load the film in the camera. Take a few frames. Open the camera back up a bit, the film should have advanced. You will be able to tell this because there is more film on the takeup spool. The frames are also numbered nearby.
It might take you a few goes to get the film to load correctly. If no luck, maybe the file wind-on is broken and the camera needs repair.
