probably the 3 volt battery in the left hand holder (long thin section, pops open, see lower body release IIRC) is dead. The camera uses an electronic light sensor to control shutter speed. It still clicks when battery is dead. ALso be sure the slide switch over lens is set to ASA 75 or ASA 3000 settings, as that can have a big effect. HTH
