Have Canon EOS 50 E Analogue camera I have used in a few times only bought it recently. It seemed to lose power so replaced batteries. At the moment the only thing showing on viewfinder is that there is a film in camera. Any suggestions

Hi. My name is*****'m a camera repair technician with over 20 years in the business and I'll be glad to help you with your question today.

The first thing I need to ask, "is there film in the camera"?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
You may need to rewind the film in order to get the camera working. If this is acceptable, please put the camera in rewind mode until it stops.

Ok I rewound the film what next
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I rewound in and removed the film and put it in again no change
Without the film in the camera, open and close the back door. Does the camera do anything?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Ok I tried that and. no change
When you say "no change", is the symbol for the film still on the LCD?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Ok I taken film out again and loaded up and it seems to have sorted the problem so thank you I wouldn't have thought the film was the problem
