Question about Cameras
Without seeing this, I can't really tell it might be that the rear door is slightly bent OR the light seal(s) are preventing the door from closing properly.
When you close the back on the camera it should close without force or pressure to latch, should be a nice crisp click. If once you have the back closed and you cn pinch down on the bck and it moves inward towards the camera then the seals are worn out and need replacing. This isn't a huge job it's one of the more common things with a film camera. I'd say probably a $60.00 fix depending on where you are and most camera repair shops do this.
There could also be several other things that caused the camera to not expose one being the battery could be exhausted (dead) and requires a new one (cheap and available) another is the aperture blades in the lens could be stuck open.
