I found my fathers old nikon f501 which he left me, and I wanted to try it out. However there seems to be a kodak film still in there. I tried to follow the instructions in the manual (turn to L - slide leaver/push button - rewind) however it doesn't seem to be rewinding and the door won't open. Just wondering if anyone has come across this before and how they fixed it?

update: And I have replaced the batteries, (tried to take a few shots and it seems to work, although nothing happens when I slide the rewind leaver & press the button)
