Have you removed the batteries for a few hours (reset) ?
Have you turned the dial around several times (clean contacts)
The only other error is the flashing battery light, if it persistes, according to the manual. It's dead as repairs would be pretty expensive against a newer replacement.

It sounds like the motor is locked up. The gears under the bottom of the camera may have gotten sluggish from dried out lubrication. You can take the bottom off to see if the gears are able to turn freely or check with a local camera repair shop.

SOURCE: Powers on, wont load film, beeps constantly, Can't select a mode,

I had a similar problem today with my camera. I'm not an expert on Cannon cameras or any cameras for that matter, but this is what I did to fix the problem.

I removed the bottom cover(has 6 screws i believe) carefully sliding the cover up starting near the battery cover. Holding the camera still I checked what gears I could to make sure they were free, but one small gear that moves up and down was stuck. I applied a very small amount of force to the gear to free it, reattached the cover and all the screws, and BAM! I was back to taking pictures.

Hopes this helps.

p.s if you can't find one of the screws its under the battery cover flap :).

That's odd that the pictures would be coming out under exposed unless the previous owner has gone into the camera functions and switched the ISO from auto to manual. Another reason is that the exposure compensation has been activated and set for - exposure

Under "normal" use the camera will read the DX code on the film canisters and adjust the ISO automatically. However the previous owner may have shut this off in preference to setting the ISO manually. Even though you have ISO 400 in the camera the ISO on in the camera setting may be ISO 1600.

Checking for the Auto ISO and exposure compensation is fairly easy as you can see the film canister through the film window or you know you have loaded 400 speed film. on the LCD panel at the back of the camera is an ISO icon and exposure compensation.

Make sure the ISO for the camera is the same as what you have loaded and if the exposure compensation is to the right of 0 then the resulting picture will be dark. Move this back to the Zero.

I wasn't able to find an exact manual (if you don't have one) for your camera but have found a camera with similar. Here is a ling for that manual.

Be aware that the built in flash does not pop up automatically in all picture modes. Try it when in the different modes (on the mode dial) and see what I mean. Does it popo up when manually opened ?, (small button on front left hand side of the viewing pentaprism/flash housing.)

First of all, shooting sports in manual is about the most difficult thing you could ever choose to do. I use the Av (Aperture Priority) and let the camera set the shutter speed. Just set your aperture wide open and fire away. That way, you're not constantly fighting with settings missing great shots. Also, in manual, BULB is simply one of the settings and can't be turned off. It can only be 'not selected'.

Best of luck!
