So my first camera an f801 has just started giving me problems.

I tried to take a photo and it made a sound like it was trying to wind the film on but couldn't.
Now the shutter is locked up, it still makes the effort to wind on the film but doesn't do it.
Usual error message on the LCD.

I've tried taking out batteries and leaving.
I've tried fresh batteries
I've had the bottom off and the obvious cogs are moving freely.
I've rewound the film and removed that.

Can anyone help?
