Question about Canon T70 35mm SLR Camera
Powers on, wont load film, beeps constantly, Can't select a mode, iso or anything. Shows film and battery bars only. Batteries are charged, spool is clear. Can anyone help please????
It sounds like the motor is locked up. The gears under the bottom of the camera may have gotten sluggish from dried out lubrication. You can take the bottom off to see if the gears are able to turn freely or check with a local camera repair shop.

I had a similar problem today with my camera. I'm not an expert on Cannon cameras or any cameras for that matter, but this is what I did to fix the problem.
I removed the bottom cover(has 6 screws i believe) carefully sliding the cover up starting near the battery cover. Holding the camera still I checked what gears I could to make sure they were free, but one small gear that moves up and down was stuck. I applied a very small amount of force to the gear to free it, reattached the cover and all the screws, and BAM! I was back to taking pictures.
Hopes this helps.
p.s if you can't find one of the screws its under the battery cover flap :).
