While loading film into the camera, it made the sound it always makes when I close the door, but instead of showing how many exposures I had used, it flashed "E2" and this has been flashing ever since (which was yesterday). I've changed the batteries and reloaded the film multiple times to no effect. Any suggestions?
No promises but if you take a roll of film that is already light fogged etc. and load it into the camera. Let it wind as normal. Now we need to work quickly: Press the rewind button. While it is winding OPEN THE BACK. It won't rewind very long because very little film is out of the cartridge so be ready. This will fogged a bit of the film but it does seem to clear the error. You can still shoot the roll if you just skip the first few shots.

Perform the following steps:
After taking the first shot, hold down the Multi-Exposure button while cocking the film-advance lever. This cocks the shutter without winding the film. You can continue to do this for as many exposures as you want. Just don't hold down the M-E button while cocking after the last exposure.
The Multi-Exposure button is the button on the front of the camera just below the shutter release button.
