Get any crud from the battery out of the works with pH-neutral stuff and q-tips or lint-free towels, and see if it works (without film; might as well check current drain with a bench supply instead of a battery, too) once you've done a satisfactory job of that.  Then visit a shop so they can see if the shutter timing is tolerable...and perhaps sometime you can load film in again.
