Flash/Auto setting not working on Canon Rebel EOS 2000 35mm camera

I have used this canon film camera for 5 years and no issues, and now when I try to use the automatic setting the flash will not pop up or fire, and there is a whining noise when I press down on the button to take a photo. When I try to make the flash go off on a different setting the body of the camera will also make a whining noise. The camera is (I think) working otherwise , though I haven't developed any of the film I have taken on it for a while. Please let me know if there is something in the camera body I should check or if I should just admit defeat.

Remove the film and have it repaired and serviced by Canon. It is worth getting it fixed if you like using film. A number of companies are now making digital backs for cameras.

Can I use my Sunpak auto 555 thyristor on my Canon Rebel EOS T5? I've tried using it with mixed results. Sometimes it performs beautifully; other times it washes out the photo.

A lot of older flash units for film cameras wont work on digital cameras. Old flashes dont have compatible electronics for modern digital cameras. Flash sync is a normal issue. Try setting the camera shutter speed to 1/60 or 1/100 and try that. The trigger voltage may be too high. To use the sunpak 555 you will need the TTL connector to the multiple contact points on the hotshoe. It might be cheaper to get a remote slave for the flash and use it off camera as a small studio flash. http://camerapedia.wikia.com/wiki/Sunpak_555

I have a Canon EOS 630, 35-135 ultrasonic lens and a 300EZ canon flash. I want to get the new Rebel T2i and was wondering if I can use my old flash and lens and have all the TTL and auto focusing features...

Different technology between your film camera and the digital era The flash won't synchronize properly with the new digital you will need an EX type flash the 35-135 will work but because the digital has a focal factor of 1.6 compared to your 35-135 it will become a 56-216mm. Keep your EOS 630 as a back up to the digital.

Can i use any film for my Canon EOS Rebel SLR Mark 2 or will anyone work?

You can use any 35mm film in any 35mm camera. You must set the film speed (ASA or DIN number) on the camera to match what it says on the film. This is to get the correct exposure, as different films have different sensitivities.

I have a Canon Digital EOS Rebel XT and the built-in flash no longer pops up when needed. This started happening after using a Canon speedlite, but then removing it. I've tried resetting everything, and...

In addition to resetting all the camera settings you should also choose the "clear all custom functions" option that is also available from the same menu. Once that's done. Put the camera in Full Auto mode and see if the issue is resolved.

Sai.

Film is not loading in my Canon EOS Rebel G...i've had this camera for a few years, but haven't used it for a while.

The camera has a capacitor to hold a charge for the shutter and the auto focussing modes. Usually when they get ten years and older they dry up and crack open. When that happens the camera will not operate

Black line across top of all my developed pictures

You have light leak somewhere to the film.
Usually from the bad film door seal.

This could happen if you're using flash and your shutter speed is set too high. If you're not set to Program or Auto mode, try changing to Program mode and see if that solves your problem.
Otherwise, it sounds like a sensor issue. Call Canon support - I've found them helpful. Check the website for phone number.

Check your mirror lock up switch. This function is used for long exposures locking the mirror in the up position to reduce vibration before the shutter is released, but you will not be able to use the view finder.
