sx70ís are available light sensitive. Where are you when you expose the picture? Time of day? Does the red button work, if you point the camera to a light source?, as opposed to available room light.

Possibly the battery in the film is too old? What's the date on the film? Try that.. if not, check to see that the film is in correctly. Sometimes if you don't break that little bit on the film when you push the pack in... trouble. Good luck!
