with electronic cameras, it is the control circuitry. send it for service. your service agent probably will replace the complete pcb as they don't know or wouldn't care to diagnose which minor component went wrong.

I think the timing of the shutter winding gears has slipped a tooth or two. look at the picture in this image:
Near the motor drive coupler at the bottom you will see a blue and a white gear. Look closely at the blue gear and you will see a line on the top of it. That line needs to be pointed at the center of the white gear when the camera has been released and ready to be advanced again.
If you wish to proceed, I will tell you how to re-time the gears.

Check the date of your film. If its past two years from its experation date it is probably bad film. If refridgerated since it was purchased it will be good film to use. The self contained battery pack is also embedded in the film pack and the battery will also stay fresh if stored in a fridge
