Error E-20 (67II)

Having suggested to a friend of mine to buy the used 645D I wasn't enabled to, he gave me his old 67II that he hasn't used for many months. When we put a new set of battery on, the camera began to show E-20 in the display, and the shutter doesn't work at all, whatever time is set, including bulb.

Any idea wath the error means? Another friend of mine has said that could be a battery problem, but mine were new, plus I took them out and reinserted afterward, but nothing changed.

Maybe remove the battery, clean the contacts & reinstall?

Inspect the contacts in the battery chamber and clean them clean them with alcohol even if they look OK.
If there is any variation in the message like E20-1-2-3 you probably have an internal fault for service. I would think that if the message persists a check-up on the bench would be the wisest action.

Try cleaning the viewfinder contacts and reattach it.
