You will have to open the back and see if the take up spool and ratchet is rotating with the movement of the film advance lever. If it does, the film has probably not been seated properly on the teeth of the ratchet and/or the lip not inserted in the take up spool. If it does not move, then something inside is broken and will probably need professional help
