Question about Canon EOS Rebel X 35mm SLR Camera
Unfortunately it's impossible to tell you without a hands-on examination of the camera.
Assuming that you are familiar with your camera and have loaded it many times before then the only remaining cause is that it's broken, but you knew that already. If so then officially there's nothing more that you can do as further options require specialist technical knowledge and tools.
35mm EOS Rebel (USA) and EOS KISS (Japan) and EOS triple digit (everywhere else) are all budget models, designed and built for Canon by Kodak as cheaply as possible. They were never intended to be repaired so had limited spare parts availability and were designed for a six year lifespan. Combined with the huge shift to digital SLR's these factors mean that these models are virtually worthless these days and so any kind of professional repair makes no economic sense and may even be impossible.
This isn't as bad as it seems. It means that you are free to first try slapping the base of your camera down onto a firm surface (such as a desk) to try and jolt free anything which as seized. if that fails then carefully strip down your camera to try and find the fault (likely a failed drive motor). If your attempt fails, you lose nothing and have gained valuable experience. It also means that replacing your camera body is very cheap or even free: every 35mm EOS I have came to me free via my local FreeCycle and Freegle groups. If you do buy one privately, then ensure that it is fully working (or has a money back guarantee) and certainly don't pay more than US$20 or GBP£15.
Good luck and please take a moment to rate my answer.
