Under exposure or no exposure would give you gray photos

    I wish it were, since that would be a simple repair. The internal battery is only a memory back up for when the main battery pack is not on the camera. It retains the settings and exposure counter only.

Low battery showing replacing batteries does not solve problem

The flashing low battery symbol is the way Canon film cameras showed that the camera has had an error and has stopped functioning. It can have multiple causes - but for a quick check remove the lens, turn off the camera and then turn it back on - see if the symbol stops flashing. A problem with the lens can also cause this problem (usually a failure of the aperture unit)

The photos from my EOS 5000 film camera have two faint dimples at the top of the photo and to the left. What is causing this?

Difficult understanding what is going on. If it is in the print then look at the negatives. Are they on there, if so check with your lab it may be a processing machine issue.

Do low batteries cause any type of picture outcomes not turning out its a 35mm

No. The camera will either take a photo or it won't.

Maybe this would be easier to answer if you describe the actual problem.

Cant see through veiwfinder

If it's fuzzy and grey then all you need to do is replace the batteries.

If it's completely dark then remove the lens and look into the lens mounting. If the mirror is stuck in either the fully up or partially up position, then the most likely cause is also a flat battery.

If the mirror is fully down and you still have a completely dark viewfinder then you have either left the lens cap on or you have a dislodged pentaprism (usually the result of a dropped camera). The second problem will put the camera totally beyond any economic repair unless you open it up and try to resecure the pentaprism yourself; it's not really a DIY job and if you find that there are broken parts inside then the camera is destined for the trash can, but you'll have nothing to lose by trying.

All my photos are coming out blurry, I shoot with a tripod for stability, I have tryed everything that I can think of to acount for Photographer error, so I can only belive that it is a problum with my...

There are only a few things that can cause this problem.
1. the mirror is not seating all the way down.
2. the pressure plate on the back door is loose.
3. the diopter on the finder is not adjusted to your eye.
4. long exposures ( vibration ).
Check your lenses with a different camera body.
Check your negatives with a magnifier. it could be printer problems.

Turn auto focus off?

On the left side of the lens right below the silver lens release button there should be a grey switch with the initials "AF" and "M". Switch it to "M" for manual.

Fog on right side of photos

Assuming the film door opens from the right, then the most likely reason is the light seal on the door. If it's just got dirty, brush it clean with a stiff brush. If it's badly worn then a camera repair shop may replace it for a reasonable fee - although I have done DIY repairs on this sort of thing using velvet :). Not for the faint-hearted tho'.

BTW the reason it's random is probably that it depends on how long each shot was in the gate before winding on and the ambient light conditions.

Nikon F60 Film rewind uncoded film help

Most manual cameras have a button to release the film on the bottom of the camera, push the button in and turn the rewind crank (left side of the top of the camera) until you feel the crank suddenly turning much easier.
