Mirror locked up
Older cameras like this are notorious for locking up after not being used for quite some time. Though, it is an easy fix, it does require some steady hands and a good memory of where everything was after you're taken it out or apart. The best solution for this is, once you've taken it apart and have access to the mirror, is to have a q-tip with a little vasoline on the tip, apply a thin (very thin) layer along all springs and joints surround the mirror and around the edges of the mirror opening, while avoiding getting any vasoline on the mirror itself. I've worked with cameras all my life and have worked at camera shops, and what I've explained here is exactly what a camera repair place would do. But, if you don't feel comfortable with small parts and tiny screws, a camera shop will gladly fix it for you, and not at a bad price.
So, Good luck! Hope this helps. I hope you're out taking photos soon!
Flash on all time in auto
Please, which camera model? Are we talking about the external flash or one built in? If it is built in the camera may think there is not enough light thus setting the flash to fire. That is what auto does, it takes all the decisions away from the camera operator.
