At least, that's what it seems to be. Whenever you want to advance the film on this model, you have to load the film, close the door and press the shutter release button once. After that, it should advance until the counter shows a '1'. When I turn on the camera by sliding back the lens cover, it automatically starts advancing and taking pictures until my roll is done, at which point it sits and beeps until you rewind the film or shut the lens again to turn it off. Opening up the top half where the shutter is located revealed nothing unusual (at least, it seemed normal to me, I don't know anything about cameras), and I couldn't open the bottom half because of one screw refusing to come loose. Aside from carving a hole around said screw, what can I do to fix this?
EDIT: When I first bought this camera, I tried using it before putting film inside to make sure it worked. I don't remember if it started continually advancing right after that, but it started to do so before I fully removed battery corrosion and added film. Also, it sounds like it's constantly taking pictures when both advancing and rewinding (the lens also keeps trying to rotate in one direction, but falls back into place at the same time as the noise).
EDIT 2: With no responses, I tried to find the problem myself after removing the last screw. While looking at the parts to try to find the problem, I accidentally bumped a piece and now it's jammed somewhere inside. This is probably going to have to be sent to an experienced repair person or just dumped forever.
