Question about Canon EOS Rebel K2 35mm SLR Camera
Assuming the camera powers up normally and there is no low battery warning, then you have a faulty shutter assembly. As your camera was originally only designed to last a maximum of five years it's done pretty well.
If so, there is absolutely nothing you can do as the only fix is a new shutter assembly and spares are hard to obtain now. This is a professional repair only and it will be far cheaper to just replace your camera body. 35mm EOS 500/Rebel bodies are almost ten a penny these days as are the comparable Nikons of the same era. You can take a gamble on buying one, but I've never paid for a single one: all mine have come from my local FreeCycle/Freegle groups. They're all virtually worthless precisely because they have a lot which can go unrepairably wrong and because they almost always need the investment of fresh batteries and a couple of processed rolls of film to check that they actually work properly.
Sorry that your camera looks to be bound for the recycling box, but at least I hope that I've given you some realistic low cost ways around the problem. Please take a moment to rate my reply.
