It sounds as if the eject mechanism didn't quite do it's job last time it was used. It could be stuck half way between in and out. Try closing the camera and with a fully charged battery keep pushing the eject button and see if it clears the problem. You can imagine that after all those years dust and gunk has built up inside. It's just a bloody shame they can't build cameras today to last that long. At the worst all you'd have to do is pull the back off and have a good look at the drive mechanism. Or pick one up for $10 on Ebay and swap the drives over.

Press the OPEN (flash) button.
This button is on the side of the camera just below the flash.

The flash mode button (lightning icon) is at the lower left on the rear of the camera.
This only changes settings when the flash is up.
This cycles through Auto, red-eye reduction, forced flash and no flash.
The mode shows in the finder or the LCD screen.
AUTO mode does not show.

I'm looking at our FD90 as I'm typing - it should be very similar to
your FD75. Use the menu button to move the cursor left on the
bottom of the display until "EFFECT" is highlighted. push the
center of the menu button to select EFFECT & then push up
to select DATE / TIME.push the button right to highlight "OFF"
then push up to highlight DAY / TIME. push in the center to
select and keep the day and time "effect" in your pictures.

It is very hard to find the repair manual. Have you got it ? I repaired my old FD-75 just by open it and disassembly the shutter button swith, cleaned and re-assembled. It works after more than a year without use.
