Another Newb Here

Hello all. I'm here to see if I can troubleshoot an old A3000 I have.

The camera turns on and the battery check feature works.

When I look through the viewfinder and then press the shutter, the '1000' lights up & stays on. That is all that happens. The shutter does not operate and the camera does not advance.
